5 best seafood recipes

Nothing makes an evening at home more special than a flavorful seafood dish. These tasty foods include not only fish, but mollusks and shellfish. Seafood is more nutritious than red meat and provides an ample supply of protein, vitamins and minerals. The following dishes are not only delicious, but also versatile and easy to make.

Bourbon glazed salmon

The brown sugar and bourbon in the glaze go perfectly with the natural flavors of fresh salmon. Soy sauce, ginger, garlic and lime juice add a savory depth and keep the fish from being too sweet. Serve bourbon salmon with a simple side like rice or spinach. The alcohol in the bourbon cooks out, so don’t be afraid to pair this dish with a wine such as pinot noir.

Shrimp scampi

This easy to make dish only includes six ingredients, the most prominent being butter and shrimp. Use white wine to deglaze the pan gives it more depth. Serve shrimp scampi over the traditional spaghetti or add variety with orzo pasta. Add a sprinkle of fresh parsley for color and a note of freshness. If you need more vegetables, serve spring veggies on the side, such as asparagus. Scampi is classically paired with a white line like pinot grigio.

Crab cakes

An Eastern shore classic, this seafood dish is easy to make at home. Flaky crab meat is combined with bread or panko crumbs and spiced with onions and pepper. Serve them as a sandwich or over a bed of mixed greens. Dress it up with a Remoulade sauce for extra spice. Crab cakes go well with a white wine like Pinot Blanc.

Why my wife preferred dinner instead of jewelry

Romantic dinner by the dim light of the candles… What could be better than the environment to express your feelings or to recall them…?

Yes, it might seem crazy, but our 10th anniversary would have become the greatest romantic present for my dearest wife. I had turmoil of emotions in my heart, since I wanted everything to be perfect and made my woman feel the Queen.

I am neither gourmand nor a chef, so I decided to limit myself with seafood and dessert. Having armored myself with supermarket products and cookery book, I rolled up my sleeves and got down to business. I made up my mind to impress my wife with a number of exotic dishes and an unexpected dinner.

Having picked a few of receipts, I followed the recommendations of the book's chefs carefully. To tell the truth, I am not an expert at cooking, but this time it was necessary to exert every effort and make this evening unforgettable. I wanted to show my appreciation to my wife for the years of work about the house and bringing up our son.

Why do the couples need a romantic dinner from time to time? First and foremost, romantic dinner is a wonderful way to add warmness and trust to the already established relationship. Second, it can also serve as a kind of stepping stone to their development or transition to a more intimate sphere. In my case, I wanted to show appreciation for all happy moments with my wife and make her face radiant with the smile.

In addition, I wanted to present my wife a beautiful jewelry set from The Eternity Rose in a beautiful atmosphere. Sarah adored the jewelry and changed her look every time she left the house. She was highly in love with unexpected gaze and marvelous words in her address. As a man, I was jealous, but my wife never made me lose the trust for her.
