Here at Tony Hakim Food Lovers, we love seafood. We can’t think of a seafood dish that doesn’t sound completely delicious. And with summer settling in, the prime Australian seafood season is here. Tony Hakim has his very favourite, and the most delicious seafood recipes to share with you.
A good fish burger is heaven, and this burger perfectly captures summer with barramundi, avocado and watercress, plus homemade tartare sauce. Our tip? Aim for wild barramundi rather than farmed – it has a better flavour.
Salmon is one of the most versatile pieces of fish – it goes well with mild and strong flavours, and does well in almost any style of cooking. Salmon and dill? A match made in heaven. Our tip? Serve with a crisp avocado salad for a perfect and sophisticated meal.
For a flavoursome twist on the beach tradition, it’s this amazing Asian-style fish and chip recipe. Using salmon, chilli flakes, soy sauce and Japanese beer, it packs a punch for something delicious and unexpected. Our tip? Experiment with Asian-inspired dipping sauces to bring out all the incredible flavours.
We love, love, love spicy dishes, and more so when they include prawns! This spicy dish is perfect when you’re in the mood for take away but want something homemade and healthier. Our tip? Serve with a side of rice and lime quarters for extra enjoyment.
An Australian classic; we love everything about a good seafood marinara, especially if it’s got a bit of bite. Pre-mix selections can be lacking on the seafood, so mix your own with prawns, clams, calamari and mussels. Our tip? Fresh pasta, and a hint of fresh chilli will make it out of this world.
Seafood soups are very low key here in Australia – seafood is a summer food, and not many people choose to eat soup in the heat. But this Cajun Prawn Bisque reminds us just how much we love seafood soup, especially one as sophisticated and flavoursome as this. Our tip? Serve with crackers to add some crunch.
