There is a secret to making perfect seafood. Once you know the secret, you will be able to cook wonderful seafood dishes. By choosing the highest quality seafood you can afford, you already get rid of many of the issues people often have with seafood.

The real secret to making perfect seafood is to keep it simple. Fish cooks quickly, so don’t try anything complicated. Fish can be baked, broiled, grilled, fried, steamed, stir-fried, sautéed, or poached. It is the original fast food because it cooks fast and you can cook it in all these different ways. These simple cooking methods bring out the best in your fish. Choose a method that complements the type of fish you are cooking. Delicate fish like sole or flounder do better with steaming or other gentle cooking method, while a more robust fish like halibut or salmon can hold up well to grilling.

Simple seasoning with herbs or a light condiment like a fresh salsa can make the most of your seafood. Let the flavor of the seafood shine; don’t hide it under a thick sauce or with over seasoning. Fresh herbs are a great choice, especially if you can just walk outside and cut some from your garden. You can also bring out the flavor of your fish by serving it with fresh chopped vegetables or fruit in a light, refreshing salsa. Just spoon a little bit over the top of your cooked fish and enjoy.

Choosing the Best Seafood to Make

Seafood is delicate. It starts to spoil very quickly. Because of this, it is important to select the best seafood you can when you buy. One of the best things you can do for yourself is to find a fishmonger that you trust.

You will recognize a good fishmonger by a shop that smells clean, not fishy. The shop should be clean, including the floors. If they have whole fish on display, it should be immersed at least half way in ice. Fillets should sit on top of the ice. No seafood should be displayed in puddles of water. The counter help should be able to answer questions for you like how long will the clams last or where do the halibut come from.

When you buy seafood, make sure it is the last thing on your list so it does not sit in your car too long. Bring a cooler with you to keep your seafood cold. Ask for a little ice to go along with it when you buy. When you get it home, store it properly. This means fish should be chilled and well wrapped. Shellfish should be chilled and wrapped, but there should be airflow. They are still alive, so air is important. By doing all of this, you will be ensured of eating seafood that is fresh and delicious.

Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.


Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.


Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone?
