Another year (and decade) is coming to an end, and that means that it’s time for parties and celebrations! Whether you’re the kind of person who loves a big end of year knees up or somebody who prefers a quiet night in, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy excellent food options.
Summer dishes of the light, fresh and delicious variety are well worth adding to your ‘must-try’ list this year. And where better to start than one of these top summer seafood recipes? Our founder Drogo Montagu spent many years working in Michelin starred kitchens, and knows from first hand experience what seafood delights work best. Take a look at these specially selected dishes from Drogo’s kitchen and try something new this summer.
These jumbo tiger prawns are plump, succulent and and full of flavour, they have to be tasted to be believed. These are the largest gambas available and only need a little seasoning to boast an amazingly sweet flavour. We have paired them with a simple, delicious salad for the perfect starter recipe for a dinner party.
If you throw a mean dinner party, this is a recipe you need in your repertoire. Girolles are a real treat of autumn and their floral nuttiness is wonderfully accentuated by the fresh halibut. Halibut is a meaty fish with large flakes and stands up beautifully to this richly flavoured sauce.
Bream is a delicate fish with a firm flake. This is a simple yet elegant dish that pairs the fish with the silkiness of well-oiled crushed herby potatoes and the zing of lemon zest. Use a rounded, grassy extra virgin olive oil for the best results and you’ll find yourself making these potato for many other meals.
