Sautéed Shrimp Cocktail

Sautéed Shrimp Cocktail

Shrimp is the most popular seafood in North America, and topped with cocktail sauce is one of the most popular ways to serve it. This super-simple method cooks the shrimp and makes the sauce at the same time. For best results and a great sustainable choice, purchase shrimp from North America where its harvest is subject to strict regulations. Imported shrimp is often raised or trawled in a very irresponsible manner.

Steamed Mussels 10 Ways

Mussels travel with their own built-in sauce base. They’re easy to steam and, when you do, they release a flavourful broth that many connoisseurs swear is the best part. That broth can be flavoured any way you want, so mussels are also a great ingredient to freestyle with.

Pan Fried Whitefish

This is one of the easiest ways to cook any type of fish. It’s also one of the tastiest, and fastest. Perhaps more than any other technique, this is how I choose to get fish on the table in a hurry. Whitefish is a generic term that refers to many different types of fish, all of them easy to find and cook.

Mussels 101

Fresh cultured blue mussels are easy to cook as well as being a healthy and easy meal option. They’re quick and tasty and can be eaten right out of the pot or used in a variety of recipes. Before you start cooking, you should always give your mussels a quick rinse. Cultured blue mussels are pre-cleaned so that’s really all you need to do. The fresh water will cause the mussels to close. If there are any that don’t close give them a quick tap, if they still don’t close at least partially, simply discard them.

Lobster Macaroni And Cheese

There are few things as good as a warm bowl of homemade macaroni and cheese especially when it doesn’t come out of a box! I don’t normally put lobster in mine - and this version is great without my favourite crustacean - but it’s a great way to make the ordinary extraordinary

Mediterranean Fish Stew

Mediterranean Fish Stew

A good fish stew has three basic parts: the flavour base, the broth and the fish. Each is easy to master. This particular version highlights many of the bright flavours of the Mediterranean. Some would call it a bouillabaisse but I don’t because that makes it sound intimidating, fancy and difficult. It also inspires too many conversations about authenticity. Remember its just fish stew!

Maritime Clam Chowder

In the Maritimes we don’t worry whether our chowders are authentic or not. We know a true clam chowder is just a bowl full of simple, hearty flavours. We often use canned clams and always stir in onions, potatoes and milk. We’re too busy asking for seconds to worry whether we got it right!
