Mussels are the world’s easiest seafood to cook, especially with a tasty beer. All you have to do is toss ‘em in a pot with the liquid of your choice and they’ll steam right open. If that liquid happens to be Upstreet’s Commons Pilsner you can count on a delicious broth perfect for soaking up and sharing with friends. A bit of crispy bacon doesn’t hurt either but remember to save a few cold ones for sharing!
Around here we tend to take our lobster pretty seriously. Nothing beats the flavour like a lobster pulled from the sea then cooked in the sea. But if you don't live by the sea, how do you make the sea? Too easy. Just remember for every gallon of water add 1/2 cup of salt.
This recipe is a quick and delicious way to celebrate a few of Canada's iconic ingredients. A quick glaze of maple syrup and mustard brings the sweet and savoury, and the oats creates a hearty and whole crust. Serve it alongside other Canadian favourites, like Prince Edward Island potatoes!
Since salmon is a fatty fish, it’s often cooked quickly with high, searing heat that gives it a crispy crust. But salmon is just as delicious when it’s cooked slowly. Gentle, patient heating gives it a tender, melt-in-your-mouth texture that is truly memorable - especially when it’s brightened with a simple honey mustard glaze.
Searing sweet briny scallops to give them a golden brown crispy crust is an essential cooking method for any cook’s seafood repertoire. The secret is a hot pan, a high-heat, rapid cooking trick mastered by busy restaurant line cooks. A hot pan not only browns the scallops but allows you to whip up a tasty wine sauce too.
The Prince Edward Island International Shellfish Festival is one of my favourite annual events where I get to showcase world-renowned, locally grown mussels, oysters, and of course, lobsters. This is my twist on the classic lobster roll, spiced up with my favourite hot sauce and lined with a paper-thin sheet of seaweed.
A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason feel free to stir your own ideas into this dish. When you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don’t like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour, you have to add your own!
