I had no idea but I'm all in. I've got enough seafood in my freezer to celebrate for nearly the whole month. Seared scallops over pasta will be our supper tonight!We are starting out with stuffed shrimp (crab) and rice pilaf tonight.
A new scallop dish will follow in a few days.
Will you be celebrating or are you one of the downers who don't like the fruits of the ocean?
Consider stuffed squid. It's a great dish stuffed and covered with a tasty tomato sauce.. . . Next on my want to try are calamari. Made them once with a friend (eons ago) but she did most of it. Watched a video just the other day with ATK doing Rhode Island Style Fried Calamari. Got me drooling. I don't care for frying but think I just might have to do this.
Oh I luvvvvv calamari!I have shrimp, scallops, lobster tails, plus I bought a (new to me) frozen dinner of Pasta alle Vongole I'm anxious to try. All waiting in the freezer.
Was sort of put off last time I made it as the clams were bitter. Their juice was great - it was the meat. So hoping this puts me back on the trail again. When I used those few clams in the Paella they were great, so this will be my next step back.
Although not a seafood - I often think of escargot in the same setting.

Fried is the best (to me). My husband likes to dip his in cocktail sauce. I like horseradish-mayonnaise for mine.That's the great thing about calamari. If you screw it up the first time just throw them into the sauce and cook'em to tender! LOL
These first ones will be rings but have looked at a couple of stuffed tube recipes. Sound delicious!
Just need to get my nerve up.
We just squeeze some lemon juice on them and that's it!Fried is the best (to me). My husband likes to dip his in cocktail sauce. I like horseradish-mayonnaise for mine.
I'm 1/4 Norwegian but I don't have experience with foods from that area. I did grow up on the gulf coast of Florida so I love fresh seafood.I will take note of this. I like seafood a lot more than DH does. I will give that jar of pickled herring in my fridge a taste. The last one was far too sweet and I threw it out. This is a different kind. I also have a fancy Danish smørrebrød (open faced sandwich) that I want to try which has white fish, smoked salmon, shrimp, and lumpfish "caviar". DH doesn't like most arthropods, he doesn't hate small shrimp. He's okay with clams, squid, and octopus. His preference is almost always fish and chips. So, I'll see what I can work into the menu this month. I would happily have seafood at supper twice a week and also at lunch and maybe even breakfast. I was raised by Scandinavian parents and Scandinavians eat a lot of seafood.
