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! With Covid-19 restrictions still in place going into the end of the year, our Christmas meals will have to be downsized. 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

This is an extremely easy dish to whip up, difficult to go wrong, and fancy looking enough to be the table's centrepiece! Check out the recipe here and get your wild sockeye salmon slab from here!

2. Littleneck 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. 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 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).

Fillets are cleaned and they are fresh and nicely packed individually - GOOD!
Request for head to be chopped but apparently they they cut into half. Anyway it is still OK.

Happy with my 0rder lobsters tail

Flavourful!

This soya sauce was rich and flavorful and enhanced the food well. Glad to find an authentic natural brewed product without MSG.

Tasty!

I had a lunch guest who is allergic to MSG so wanted to avoid it at all costs. I used this sauce on steamed seabass from Dish the Fish and it was quite delicious! Also mixed it with black bean sauce to use on mixed vegetables. Great product, happy to buy again!

Excellent! I grilled the lobster tails. Meat was firm and taste was sweet. Worth the buy.
