The sun is shining, the beach is calling your name, and Australian seafood is in its finest form. It must be time for us to share another seasonal recipe collection!
If you're looking for some inspiration for your next barbecue, dinner party, or just a weeknight dinner, read on: we've got some delicious summer seafood recipes to share with you.
Kingfish Crudo with Ruby Grapefruit
Summer cooking is all about simplicity and freshness, and this dish epitomises both. One of our staff members recently served it up as the starter at a sunny rooftop dinner party, to rave reviews.
Prawn Salad with Chilli, Cucumber and Watercress
This salad is the perfect easy dinner on a hot day: you don’t even need to turn on the stove to make it! Want to get your hands on the freshest possible prawns? Chat to your fishmonger - they'll tell you which ones to pick.
Miang Kham (Betel Leaves)
This recipe is one that Sydney Seafood School featured in their Southeast Asian cooking class once upon a time, and the whole team still has a soft spot for it. It's such a great option for spring and summer entertaining, as it's made to be eaten with your hands.
Speaking of entertaining, Ceviche is a classic appetiser that can be whipped up in advance and rolled out for any gathering. As the fish isn’t actually being cooked, it is important to make sure it’s sashimi-grade, which is the freshest possible – just check with your fishmonger before you take it home.
When you need something filling, but still light enough for a hot summer evening, turn to this classic Provençal salad. Replacing the classic tinned tuna with fresh chunks really takes it to the next level.
Classic recipes never go out of fashion, because they simply taste good; we'd put the Prawn Cocktail firmly in that category. Avocado, iceberg lettuce, fresh prawns, and an addictive Marie-Rose sauce combine to make the perfect poolside snack.
