seafood made even better

The benefit of living of close to the ocean is being able to get wonderful fresh seafood.

 

1         Get as fresh as possible – it should smell of the sea not of itself if that makes sense.

 

2         Keep it cool every hour out of the fridge means an extra “day” of fridge life.

 

3         Use that lemon – fresh lemon juice sparkles the seafood flavour.

 

4         Cook in less time – a scallop for example only 30 seconds each side – salmon cook till it is still pink in the centre – best medium rare you can always cook some more but you can’t help over-cooked fish.

 

5         Forget cheese with seafood it really doesn’t work.

 

6         Try to avoid cream sauces as well with seafood in the main – a lighter cleaner sauce works best.

 

7         Don’t over complicate flavours – less is more – also if the seafood is fresh why swamp it with other flavour.

 

8         Try fennel with seafood and vanilla with crayfish.

 

9         When making seafood fritters try a little rice flour in the mix to make a lighter fritter.

 

10     Try grapefruit with fresh crab.
