This menu for a simple seafood meal at home comes from deep blu Seafood Grille. The chefs there are known for their fresh approach to cooking seafood, and they use sustainable fish and shellfish for their creations whenever possible.
Going out to eat these days feels a little fraught and lots of us are cooking at home, learning techniques that help transform an at-home menu into something that tastes like a professionally made meal.
Here’s a recipe for a beautiful and simple seafood meal at home.
Crispy-skinned snapper is a perfect example of a simple but high-reward technique that will make you feel like you’re in a fancy restaurant. The snapper can be swapped with just about any white, flaky fish. Make sure you ask what’s fresh and locally caught. Living in Florida, we have almost no excuse NOT to eat locally caught fish! The Key-lime Avocado puree adds acidity and creaminess and further elevates the fish.
The Mango Relish is, of course, optional. But it’s crazy-simple to make! The addition of tropical flavors and textures further elevate this meal to fancy level. (But it’s easy enough to make on a weeknight.)
Chili-Spiced Tostones are easy to make once you have the technique down. You may never crave fries again when you see how simple these are to make! Dust them with chili powder or even a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of kosher salt for a high-payoff side dish your family will absolutely love.
