Can't make it to the beach this year? Enjoy these five favorite seafood dishes from the comfort of your own kitchen.
Seared Scallops with Pomegranate Sauce
These meaty, yet tender, shellfish are at their best when sprinkled with a delicate combination of sugar, salt, and pepper
and seared in a hot cast iron skillet to lock in the juices. Serve on top of watercress and drizzle with a delicious sauce
flavored with pomegranate juice, sweet balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and a dash of heat from red pepper.
Grilling salmon on a cedar plank is one of the tastiest ways to enjoy this omega-3-rich fish. A rub made from brown sugar, cayenne, and thyme
pairs perfectly with salmon and really accents the natural flavors.
Infuse large, juicy shrimp with coconut milk, cilantro, and lime juice for an explosion of island flavor. Coated in a light coconut breadcrumb mixture
and fried to perfection, these shrimp simply melt in your mouth. A sweet-and-spicy homemade Maui mustard sauce adds a whole
new level of deliciousness to this traditional dish.
This classic tosses chopped clams and linguine pasta in a buttery white wine sauce, mixed with earthy mushrooms, garlic, and
fresh herbs. Using canned clams and presliced mushrooms saves time in the kitchen—this dish can be on your table in just 45 minutes from
start to finish.
Catfish often gets a bad rap in the delicacy department, but Southerners have figured out a way to make it shine. Simply soak
the mild fillets in buttermilk to create a moist coating and add additional flavor. Next, dredge them in a cornbread mix seasoned
with garlic powder, herbs, salt, and pepper, then fry until golden brown and crispy. You'll have a nicely seasoned crust on
the outside and a delicious, flaky inside. Serve with a side of coleslaw and hush puppies.
