Give Me Seafood Please! Recipe

Give Me Seafood Please!

09.17.14 by Jackie

If you follow the blog, you probably know that even though we have many family members in our household, baby Aria and I are the only non-vegetarians and the two of us love seafood! Shrimp, fish, crab, lobster -- you name it, we crave them all!

We recently had a dinner guest and since I knew of his love for crustaceans, I prepared a special meal for him. I'll post the recipe and photo tomorrow. My first hint is that in my opinion this seafood dish is probably the most luxurious meal, and our guest wiped the dish clean. I left a bowl filled with lemon water on the side for him to clean his hands...hehe.

In the meantime, here is a sample of the seafood dishes I've published so far on PhamFatale. Bon appétit!

I love seafood, and I’ve used that love as a way for me to eat lighter meals with less meat. Today, I made chorizo-flavored mussels. To ensure the dish doesn't turn out too fishy tasting, I used a bit of our homemade Habanero and garlic sauce, anise-flavor liqueur, shallots and salted butter. 

We ate the mussels with a large salad and served yogurt and freshly cut fruit for dessert. This meal was so delicious, I could eat it over and over again for the next few days!

This is probably the only shellfish dish that I can still cook inside the house without hearing all the vegetarians in my home complaining about a seafood smell. I guarantee both seafood lovers and vegetarians will be happy at the table.
