If you're not a fan of turkey, you don't have to force yourself to have them just because it's Christmas! Embrace the fact that it's not gonna snow in Singapore, that a whole Turkey may be too big for your family and guests, and appreciate that some of the traditional Christmas dishes are a bit too foreign for your palate. Here's our list of Christmas dish ideas that may be more palatable and manageable (without having to eat leftovers for days after Christmas Day).
1. Baked salmon in foil

2. Clams with spaghetti
Yet another easy dish that is presentable, easy to put together and guaranteed to be popular. Check out the recipe here (we've tried it, it's really yummy). Get your clams from here. Best thing about frozen clams is that they come already cleaned and are quick to thaw, reducing prep time tremendously.
3. Broiled/ Grilled Hamachi Collar

Hamachi collars are still getting discovered by households in Singapore but those who've discovered it swear by it and always have a pack or two in their freezer. Collars of big fishes are wonderfully oily, soft, and easy to eat. Get the recipe here and get the hamachi collars here!
4. Curry Sting Ray

What's a party in Singapore without curry? Sting ray is a fish that goes very well with curry due to its flaky yet chewy texture. Get this stingray curry freshly cooked to order at our shop at West Coast Plaza or get your stingray here!

Take a leaf out of the Aussies' book, they've made grilling prawns a Christmas tradition! Yes, why not take your Christmas meal al fresco if the weather is good? These big tiger prawns are not sold on our website and can only be found at our retail outlets (contact us if you'd like to reserve them). If you're not a fan of giant prawns, you can get some medium sized prawns to grill too.
