I hosted another workshop today, this was seafood cooking. We cooked and discussed all types of Seafood for the home kitchen for weeknight meals and special occasions. It was a busy day but I wanted to cover lots of different seafood that we have access to in Tasmania, to encourage my guests to eat more seafood and be confident cooking and preparing it. I was pretty thrilled that 2 of the guest today were repeat workshop customers, (this is my third workshop) and 2 re-booked before leaving!!
We shucked Oysters and served them with a tangy shallot dressing and cooked them with salt and szechwan pepper. We cooked mussels and made handmade fettucchinie. We filleted a fish made a stock and seafood chowder. We made a few easy pantry staple salmon meals, caper tart with onion jam and cold smoked salmon, a apple cider slaw with hot smoked salmon and salmon mince koftas served with tatzaki. We baked a whole fish dressed it in lemon and oregano to serve with smashed potatoes and skordallia. Scallops were wrapped in bacon and served with spicy tomato sauce. We baked octopus and pickled octopus, crusted fish and a made a hot smoked salmon dip and served it with my homemade sour dough and olive oil. The attendees were quite happy for the opportunity to taste what we learnt! All the recipes are from my books.

We shucked and cooked oysters in salt and pepper, and served some of the freshly shucked oysters natural with a Asian dipping sauce. We cleaned octopus and baked it in olive oil. I had prepared some octopus with my greek pickle style to taste as well. We filleted a fish and made a stock from the bone for the base of a Moroccan fish stew. We then baked the fillets with a gremolata crust. We split scallops and made some pasta to serve them with cooked in olive oil and garlic. And we made a simple hot smoked salmon and veg slaw. It was a great day!
