Baked, grilled, stir-fried, sautéed, poached, or steamed — seafood is a versatile ingredient and a staple in cultures all over the world. This week, our tastemakers are here to share their best seafood recipes, featuring everything from crab cakes, shrimp, and salmon to fish tacos and fish and chips! These Sunday Supper recipes are sure to make you want to cook your own delicious seafood at home!
No matter how you choose to serve it, seafood is almost always quick and easy to prepare. Of course, different methods of cooking suit different types of seafood better than others. If you’re cooking on the grill, for example, you might want to consider using a meaty, firm fish that will hold up to being handled over a grate, and if you want to make a poached dish, salmon, scallops, and shrimp usually work best. Thankfully, there are cooking tools you can use to make your life easier when making your best seafood recipes, and add to the versatility of what you can make!
For example, you can cook flakier, skinless fish and small shellfish on the grill by using grill baskets. Grill baskets come in different varieties, and best of all can be used not only for your seafood, but for vegetables too – you could grill them all together for a delicious mix, and even throw in some beef for a surf & turf!
There are plenty of tools available to you for cooking your best seafood recipes. The next time you make your own Sunday Supper recipes at home, here are some different ones to consider using!
Tools for Cooking Seafood
- Foil: Foil is often used for baking fish whole to seal in flavor and moisture for perfectly flaky fillets. You can pack it with any seasonings or veggies you want, and the fish will absorb their flavor! Foil isn’t limited to baking, either; you can prepare fish in foil on the grill.
- Fish Spatulas: Fish spatulas are exactly what you might think they are. They’re spatulas made with fish in mind, for flipping delicate fillets that might otherwise fall apart.
- Fish Poachers: Fish poachers are used for, of course, poaching fish! They preserve moisture and evenly cook the fish. You can poach fish on the stove or even in the oven.
If you’re buying whole fish, you might also want to consider picking up a knife suited for filleting them yourself and pin bone tweezers for smaller fish.
