RECIPES| Growing up in a coastal city seafood was such a large part of our diet. Even now after moving to another city, we have continued the ritual with Sunday always containing a seafood based meal. Below is a list of some of our delicious seafood recipe ideas, just in case you want to join in on our tradition.
Panko Crumbed Scallop
This panko crumbed scallops recipe is super simple and utterly delicious. There isn’t much in the way of ingredients here, so it’s important that you use high quality ingredients so that their flavours really shine through.
This dish is a twist on the classic Basquaise squid stew recipe. It is not a stew however it holds true to the Basque style which is based on using a tomato and red pepper/capsicum sauce.
Tomato and Basil Baked Fish
One of the things that I love most about the summer is the bountiful quantities of fresh tomatoes and basil that are available. This tomato and basil baked fish celebrates these ingredients perfectly.
Vietnamese- Style Banana Leaf Fish
This Vietnamese-style banana leaf fish recipe is inspired by the street food of Vietnam.This dish is really easy to make, with moist tender fish contrasting with a crisp, almost claypot-like rice.
Herb Crusted Whiting
My grandfather loves fishing and one of my enduring childhood memories is going to my grandparent’s house and eating pan fried fresh whiting with a simple breadcrumb coating. Inspired by this, we’ve created a herb crusted whiting recipe which adds a bit of a flavour boost while upping the healthiness credentials by baking instead of pan frying. The fact that it’s super quick to prepare and cook is a nice bonus too.
Coconut Milk & Barramundi Ceviche
When hot summer weather is in full force it is time for light, fresh dishes, and this coconut milk & barramundi ceviche recipe is a great option. The beautiful fresh fish is cooked lightly in the acid from the grapefruit and lime, while the mango adds a slight sweetness and the mild coconut rounds out the flavour profile seamlessly.
Healthy Japanese Salmon Salad
This healthy Japanese salmon salad is a quick and easy meal which is perfect on a warm day. It’s light and fresh, with a zesty citrus splash.
Preserved lemon and octopus salad
This preserved lemon & octopus salad recipe is light, healthy and delicious.
Octopus With Chimichurri
This Octopus with Chimichurri recipe makes cooking octopus at home easy and quite approachable. Often people ignore this beautiful piece of seafood as they are not sure how to deal with it. However I can guarantee it is much easier than you thought. This recipe creates a delicious dish perfect for the warm weather which works well as a tapas style dish or an entree if you serve it on a bed of lettuce.
Sometimes you want something home cooked, but just don’t have the time to prepare anything that takes too much time or effort. At times like this, our sherry shrimp recipe always hits the spot, with hearty and intense, but not overpowering, flavor.
