Did you know that the winter months are around the time where seafood is at its freshest? You’d expect a season like summer to have the best yields, but it’s actually the opposite! As you prepare for the upcoming winter season, you should know that there are endless possibilities for tasty seafood recipes – including those that work best during this time! We showcase some of our favorite winter seafood recipes to warm you up this year!
Thai Seafood Risotto
This first recipe will warm you up in more ways than one! It’s a perfect dish to consume if you’re a big fan of spicy food. Scallops and squid are combined with spicy ingredients like Thai red curry to give your taste buds a jolt. This perfectly complements the great taste of each seafood if you’re a fan of spicy seafood. Just be careful if you have a low spice tolerance!
This recipe combines two of the most popular types of cuisine out there in Italian food and seafood. There are already plenty of recipes that mix the two, so why not take it a step further by making a whole lasagna with them? Shrimp and several types of filet are the best ingredients you could use for this dish, but feel free to add your own spin with foods like lobster and crab!
Scallops with Pancetta
Sometimes, you want a bit of simplicity in the meals you prepare. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice taste as a result! Scallops with pancetta is a recipe that takes about 15 minutes to prepare, but adds a world of new flavors to your seafood. Scallops aren’t the most flavorful seafood in the world, but when combined with something like pancetta, you’ll be begging for more!
Cajun Shrimp Pasta
This fusion of Italian and seafood is able to balance the different flavors in a remarkable way. Even with the kick you can expect from a seafood like cajun shrimp, ingredients like a sauce made with sour cream and a shrimp mixture make sure that it’s not too overwhelming. It may take a little bit to prepare, but the efforts will be well worth it in the end!
