I have a lot of favourite seafood recipes. As you know, I have been fascinated with eating seafood dishes since I was a young lad. Over time, I have discovered a lot of recipes that interest me. I tried cooking all of them and some of them were successful while some of them were not.
For the recipes that were successful, I sometimes tried to experiment with them a bit – they didn’t turn out too bad. I like experimenting with some of the recipes that I have tried in the past. It makes me feel like they are my own.
My favourite seafood recipes
Of all the seafood recipes that I tried, here are two that I love the most.
Spanish-style Cod in Tomato Broth
I love cooking with cod and this is one of the best that I usually make. The best one to use for this dish is the Atlantic cod. So if you have that in your local market, that is what you should use. In case you do not have it, just be careful when you are stirring to keep the fish from breaking up. The first step is to cook 1 bag of brown rice – just follow the instructions and omit the salt and fat. Drain the whole thing after. As the rice is cooking, heat the skillet (with high heat) and add oil when it is hot enough. Sprinkle salt, paprika, and black pepper on the fish. Pan fry the fish until it is light brown on both sides. This should take 3 minutes on each side. Once cooked, turn the heat to medium heat and add garlic, shallots, and red pepper. Let them cook for 4 minutes then add tomatoes, chicken broth, white wine, and thyme. Let it simmer then add parsley and lemon juice. Combine the cooked rice, more parsley, and almonds. Place everything in a shallow bowl and serve with 2 pieces of fish each and scoop enough of the tomato mixture.
Crispy Potato Cakes with Salmon
This is another one of my favourites. I usually cook this for brunch. It is quite easy to do. First, I combine 3 tablespoons of green onions, shredded frozen potatoes, 2 eggs, and salt. Add some flour to help clump them together. Add 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Get ⅓ cup of the potato mixture and add to pan. Flatten the mixture and fry. Repeat until you have cooked all of the potato mixture. It should take around 4 minutes for each side to become brown and crisp. Place the potato cakes on a platter. Take some cold-cooked salmon and place it on top of the potato cake. Add sour cream if you wish and some green onions.
These are only some of the amazing seafood recipes that you can enjoy. There are a lot of other recipes that are found online. You can do your research and find the dishes that suit your personal taste and cravings.
