Winter SeafoodEveryone thinks that Seafood is purely a summer delight, but they would be wrong, it can and should be enjoyed all year around.  Here are the 10 top tips for enjoying winter seafood :

  • When you want to marinate seafood, 30 minutes is plenty, and longer and acidic ingredients such as lemon juice can start to cook the fish, making its flesh turn white.
  • When cooked fish will flake easily with a fork. Avoid overcooking as this will spoil the flavor.
  • Fish will continue to cook once removed from the heat, so transfer to a plate as soon as the flesh turns white to avoid overcooking.
  • Introduce children to seafood with milder flavors first white fleshed fish are a good start place to start.
  • When purchasing prawns, look for firm intact shells, a pleasant fresh sea scent and no discoloration, (particularly at joints or heads). Leave the tails on for a handle you’ll be dipping them in a sauce.
  • To avoid cross contamination, cooked and raw seafood should always be stored separately.
  • For a spice dipping sauce for cooked prawns, combine 2 tbs soy sauce, 1 tbs chopped ginger, 1 tbs chopped chilli and 1 tbs sugar. Or for a refreshing dipping sauce, combine ½ cup sweet chilli, 2 tbs fish sauce and 2 tbs lime juice.
  • You can always try a Bag ‘N Bake, simply choose your fish then add your marinade or butter and it’ll come in a handy parcel ready to bake.
  • When purchasing fish fillers, look for a bright, frim flesh, and a pleasant fresh sea scent.
  • After purchase seafood should be kept chilled until it can be placed in the refrigerator then consumed within two days.
