7 CHRISTMAS DISH IDEAS USING SEAFOOD

If you're not a fan of turkey, you don't have to force yourself to have them just because it's Christmas! It's our second year living with Covid-19 restrictions but that doesn't mean we should give up on celebrating Christmas! We think that seafood is a good option to have for fuss-free, quick prep for cosy celebrations. 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

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. Spot Prawn Cocktail

Wild Canadian spot prawns are naturally sweet and we can't find a better choice of prawns for the traditional retro style prawn cocktail. Quickly poach these prawns (no more than 2 minutes), peel them, and serve them on top of iceberg lettuce in a wine or martini glass. Drench them with Marie Rose Sauce or serve separately on the side. We like this easy recipe for this dish.

5. Grilled Tiger Prawns

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? Our large wild tiger prawns taste really good both grilled and baked.

6. Grilled Octopus Legs

Grilled octopus is really popular in restaurants now and will be a sure hit with your guests. One of the most popular way to prepare octopus is by throwing it on the grill as the char really brings out the sweet, chewy texture if the octopus. The key thing to note before throwing it on the grill is that you should tenderise it first by gently boiling it for 20 minutes, or even better, sous vide it for 5 hours. Finish it up on a searing hot grill and dress it with aioli, smoked paprika or whatever you fancy. 

7. Baked Lobster Tails with Garlic Butter

Lobster tails and are elegant, easy to prepare and bound to impress. This dish does not require a fancy recipe. Prepare your lobster tails by using a pair of kitchen scissors to make a slit down the tail. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a separate bowl, mix together melted butter, minced garlic and lemon juice. Spread the mixture on the lobster tails before putting into the oven to bake for 10 to 15 minutes (depending on size).

Sockeye salmon roe

It’s subtle, juicy and a hint of sweetness. Great to be eaten on its own.

Tasty tasty

Used it for stir fry mee siam, stir fry veggies etc. Excellent. Definitely buying again.

Huge fresh prawns

Huge. Firm to the touch. No unpleasant after taste. Will buy again.

Yummylicious Angka

Super fresh, can tell from its firmness. No “fish tank” smell or “drain water/ muddy” aftertaste. Will definitely order again.

Big and creamy

Good! They are mostly big and creamy (only one was tiny), and great value for money! We didn’t thaw them before consumption. Just run the frozen shells under running water in the sink for 4-5 minutes. Very convenient!
