Why not whip out a main course that your guests won’t soon forget? As far as Garlic Prawns go, this dish is sure to impress! With a completely open, butterflied presentation, top them with garlic butter and pop them in the oven at 180°C for 15-20 minutes for a delicious showstopper.
A classic dish with a seafood twist, this recipe is perfect for impressing your dinner guests. Salmon fillets are wrapped in a mushroom mixture and puff pastry, then baked until golden brown. Aim for a 1kg skinless cut of salmon fillet (pin-boned, of course), along with 300g of finely chopped mixed mushrooms, and 2 sheets of frozen butter puff pastry for the main ingredients. Herbs, oil, butter, zest, and shallots are to be added accordingly. Serve with a side of roasted vegetables or a green salad for a complete meal.
Fish Tacos with Tomato Salsa
For a fun and festive seafood dinner party recipe that offers a polite nod to Mexican cuisine, try these Fish Tacos with Tomato Salsa! They’re perfect for summer entertaining. And, they’re also healthy, so you can feel good about serving them to your guests. The tacos are made with fresh white fish (flathead may be preferable), white corn tortillas, shredded cabbage and a salsa composed of diced tomato, spring onion, garlic, olive oil, coriander and lime.
BBQ Moreton Bay Bugs with Burnt Lime
For something a little different, try these BBQ Moreton Bay Bugs with Burnt Lime. They’re sure to be a hit with your guests! Bay bugs are a type of lobster that is native to Australia. The key to preparing Bugs is to cut and remove the shell that covers the abdomen, to reveal the succulent flesh underneath. About one Bug per serve should do the trick.
Next prepare a topping of unsalted butter, chopped parsley, black pepper and garlic cloves. On the barbecue, after squeezing limes on the shell side and letting it cook for 5 minutes, you’re going to want to flip and spread the parsley mix over the flesh side and cook for 12 minutes (or until cooked through).
For a fun and unique seafood dinner party recipe, try these Chargrilled Cuttlefish with Smoked Paprika Aioli! Cuttlefish are a type of squid that is popular in Mediterranean cuisine. They have a firm texture and are very easy to cook. This recipe calls for marinating the fish (cut into 3m lengths) in a mixture of olive oil, garlic, chilli and lemon zest for at least 2 hours. Season with salt before barbecuing for 2 minutes while turning.
