Of course usual clambake recipes and lobster recipes are good. Who has the time for the clambake or the money for lobster? As a working wife and mother, time is of the essence. If I cannot get dinner on the table in a reasonable amount of time, it’s not worth doing. But in the process I must be able to please my family.
One thing I am terrible at is measuring. I like to use a few favorites ingredients in any seafood recipes and adapt it to a healthier tastier way of cooking. And, the best part of cooking seafood is you can use whatever means you have available. It can be be grilling, sauting or broiling.
Using shrimp as an example, we find that a pound of shrimp contains about 26 to 35 individual shrimp and costs roughly $ 8. That’s pretty cheap for the base of a meal that your entire family will enjoy. Use a small paring knife to peel the shrimp and remove the veins. Pass the knife from the top of the shrimp toward its tail. That makes it much easier to open the shell. Then the shrimp will pop out right away. (Or, if you’re willing to pay a bit more, you can purchase frozen shrimp already peeled.)
If you can, use butter
Use about a teaspoon of butter and a teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil in the bottom of a saut pan, add a clove or garlic (let’s be honest – we are not peeling and mincing our own garlic here, we are using a teaspoon of already chopped garlic in the jar), a half of finely chopped sweet onion, some salt and pepper, some parsley and your favorite seafood seasoning. You can just as easily wrap all of your ingredients in foil and pop on the grill or under the broiler for about 20 minutes for no-fuss cooking.
The shrimp should be served on a bed of wild rice cooked with chicken broth. Asparagus and tender baby portabella mushrooms, cooked together on the stove or over the grill with salt to taste and a dash of extra virgin olive oil, make an excellent side dish. These items combine to make a delicious dinner that is low in calories and quickly prepared (in no more than 45 minutes). Cleaning up shouldn’t be a problem either.
Cook with fresh seafood
After awhile, cooking with fresh seafood items will become a standard way of cooking for you. The best part of utilizing seafood in your normal diet is it just so healthy! It is important to note that making sure your seafood is fresh is absolutely necessary. To ensure this, choose a company located on the eastern seaboard to handle the shipping of your seafood items. If at some point you run out of things to cook, no problem, just go online and view all the great seafood recipes out there. Of course you always have the option of visiting a bookstore in your town or city and they almost always have a large collection of cookbooks available.
When presented with the challenge of entertaining your family or just some close friends, it is the absolute best time to prepare a delicious seafood recipe. When you family and friends dig into the tasty seafood appetizer or main course they will have no choice but to automatically think this is a very special occasion and will feel as if this is a very rare treat.
