Seafood is a staple in many cultures around the world. In some places, it’s a dish that can vary from affordable to expensive depending on where you are and what type of seafood you’re looking for. This blog post will highlight 10 of our favorite seafood dishes found around the world!
Thai Beach Chili Crab – This dish is a seafood lover’s dream come true. The crab meat has been roasted in the oven with garlic, red onion, and Thai chilies before being served on top of rice with an optional side of spicy sauce for dipping. Be warned that this dish will leave you crawling back for more!
Maryland Style Steamed Blue Crabs – If you’re looking for seafood delivery in Sydney, then blue crabs are your best bet to order. These spiny creatures can be steamed or boiled until they’ve reached their desired level of doneness (we recommend medium) and have had some seasoning added before eating them out of the shell using only our hands; no plastic utensils are allowed here! They’re also great when dressed up with a simple garlic butter and lemon juice or even mustard sauce.
Ceviche – This popular dish is made of seafood that has been cooked by being marinated in citrus juices, usually lime to give it its signature tangy flavor. Seafood typically used includes shrimp, octopus, clams, and/or fish such as tilapia or reef cod. It can be served cold for a refreshingly light meal during the summer months but our favorite way to eat this delicious dish is when it’s hot! You take pieces of ceviche from the bowl you’ve just prepared over an open flame – preferably gas at first before switching to wood chips on your grill or smoker – until they’re charred and crispy around the edges while still juicy inside.
Lobster in a Garlic Butter – This is one of our favorite seafood dishes when we can’t decide on what type of dish to eat for dinner! There’s nothing like the rich flavor that comes from cooking lobster in garlic butter and it makes for an excellent appetizer, too. Once you’ve run out of your own personal stash, please let us know – so we don’t need to keep stealing yours!
Oysters with Mignonette Sauce – The Mignonette sauce is made up primarily of finely chopped shallots or red onion mixed together with wine vinegar; sometimes white pepper will be added as well before being served over fresh oysters around half shell. You might also see recipes that require you to add a tablespoon of minced fresh herbs such as parsley or tarragon.
Andouille étouffée – This Cajun dish is made with spicy smoked sausage, seafood, and vegetables in white sauce over rice. The name means “stuffed” which loosely refers to the fact that this dish typically consists of different types of meat stuffed into crawfish shells before being baked or boiled. We have one word for you when it comes to this recipe – yum!
Gumbo – Another classic dish from Louisiana’s Deep South region, gumbo originated from West African slaves who combined their French culinary tradition with traditional dishes like okra and roux (a mixture used primarily for thickening sauces) found around New Orleans. This dish is believed to be the original “chicken and rice” dish before it was adapted by plantation owners.
Fried Catfish – A favorite in Southern US culture, fried catfish is usually served with a side of hush puppies (fried cornmeal dumplings) or even coleslaw for those who want their meal on the lighter side. The fish can also be served as an appetizer when breaded and lightly fried; catsup will typically accompany this version of the dish.
Oysters Rockefeller – These oysters are topped with one of our favorite combinations – spinach leaves mixed up with crumbled bacon, butter, heavy cream, garlic salt, and white pepper then baked until they’re warm throughout but not overcooked.
Gefilte Fish – Another dish with Jewish origins, gefilte fish is a savory mixture of ground whitefish (usual carp) mixed up with eggs and matzo meal before being cooked in water or oil. It can be served as an appetizer but it’s also commonly enjoyed during Passover when the ingredients are traditionally made from scratch – no boxed mixes allowed!
We hope that you enjoyed reading about our favorite seafood dishes around the world. When it comes down to it, there’s nothing more satisfying than enjoying a dish of perfectly cooked lobster or fresh oysters Rockefeller after a day spent in the kitchen cooking up your favorite seafood dish from scratch!
