For most people, dinner is a routine that can sometimes become boring and predictable. Incorporating some seafood into your dinner plate is not only good for your health, but it’s also a great way to spruce up your dinner. To that effect, here are a few seafood dinner ideas to get you going:
By combining the simplicity of ordinary pasta with the flavorsome qualities of crab, you get an easy-to-make, healthy, and delectable dinner. You’ll only need simple ingredients such as tomatoes, olive oil, anchovies, chilis, tomato zest, and, of course, the crab.
The first step is to make the patties as usual. Then, char broil them or pan sear them to golden brown. We serve our crab cakes up with your choice of side, including fresh steamed veggies or loaded potatoes.
This is essentially a thick, creamy soup made by mixing the typically chunky seafood stock into a paste made from blending flour and vegetables such as onions, carrots, and peppers. Key to the chowder is the seafood stock, which you can make by mixing and mashing shrimp, crab, potatoes, and lobster meat. For chowder soup, sauté onions, carrots, and celery in olive oil over medium heat for a few minutes. Then, sprinkle a little flour to make a thin paste.
Next, increase the heat and whisk the flour and vegetable mixture (stock) until it all incorporates. Add potatoes and your favorite seasoning. Then, pour in some milk when the potatoes become tender. The whole process takes about 40 minutes.
This meal involves creating a delectable stew by combining fish and a sautéed vegetable mixture of garlic, onion, parsley, and tomato paste. The primary ingredient is clam juice. If you don’t have clam juice, then water or fish stock will do. For the fish, you may choose any crustacean or white fish such as shrimp, tilapia, or red snapper.
The first step is to sauté onions over olive oil for about 4 minutes. Then, add garlic, parsley, and tomato paste at varying intervals and cook until the vegetables are all fork tender. After that, add the clam juice and fish, and simmer until the fish is fully cooked.
Getting your weekly fix of fish and seafood nutrients is crucial to keeping your body and brain healthy.
