Unless you are a vegetarian, you love seafood. Let’s face it, no other category has so much variety as seafood does. To even count the number of dishes in Britain is a headache, let alone the entire world. So we just want to recommend to you some of the less heralded yet fabulous dishes. We have borrowed seafood cooking techniques from both the Western and Eastern worlds to put together this post.
Before we begin, we tried these recommendations after reading up on numerous food blogs and other resources. As is our style, we added our own touch to these recipes to give it a different taste. While a couple of them failed with hilarious consequences, we made some great inventions!
Grilled Grouper and fruit salad
A grouper is a fish from the same family as sea basses. The dish is prepared the same way you grill any fish. Add some salt and vinegar as you go along with it. The grouper goes with an array of fruit and vegetable combinations. Try it with some peach and apple salad.
This is not as straightforward as the earlier one. You need a sweet and sour paste that contains sweet berries, ideally strawberries. The scallops are prepared normally, with heavy doses of butter and olive oil to marinate them.
Croqetas de Salmon
If you have heard of the Spanish croqetas, you know the ones with Jamon (ham) and Boletus (mushrooms). The salmon based ones are delicious as well. They are also simple enough to prepare, with mashed salmon, eggs and flour being used to prepare the batter and a deadpan for frying them to shape.
Crab mac and cheese
Nothing to explain here. The American favorite Mac and cheese get a new seafood twist to it. Stick initially with the same recipe to prepare a standard mac and cheese, and just before you add the melting cheese to the made pasta, add mashed crabmeat to the mix.
Orange shrimp with stir-fried rice and vegetables
The Asian style fried rice is a delicacy all over the world. It consists of vegetables, chicken or meat, depending on your preference. In this recipe, you add shrimp seasoned with orange juice, olive oil and soy sauce to the fried rice. Yum!
Whilst trying to prepare these recipes, try also to experiment with the odd ingredient change. As all of us have a different perception of taste, tweaking a few ingredients to your liking will likely cause you to relish the dish much more.
