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!

Whenever we host a formal dinner, I tend to serve a "surf and turf" as a main course. This means a combination of seafood and meat. And usually my choice of seafood is Chilean sea bass because it's such a delicate and exquisite fish.

For this marinade, I mixed Dijon mustard, soy sauce and molasses. The key is to first form an outer crust while pan-searing the fish and then complete the cooking in the oven. The fish dish is fairly simple but so elegant!

Pan-Fried Grouper Recipe

This is a simple preparation for cooking white fish fillets. I used skinless grouper fish fillets because the skin can be strong tasting and unpleasant. I let the fish sit in milk and a mixture of onions, fennel, celery seed, bay leaf and thyme. Then I simply pan-fried the fish, basted it with clarified butter and waited until the flesh turned opaque. 

Grouper has succulent, moist meat on the inside if cooked properly. Its mild, slightly sweet taste is great to introduce to children. Baby Aria loved it. I think her favorite part was that I let her drizzle lemon juice over her fish.
