Winter Seafood

How to enjoy 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 flavour.
  • 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 flavours 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 discolouration, (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 tbsp 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, firm 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.

Simple really you can enjoy winter seafood just as much as summer. It doesn’t matter if you are baking salmon or grilling it.
