Seafood Medley

Tuesday, December 24, 2019
This "Seafood Medley" is bursting with buttery sauce and fish from the sea.

I love to make a big pot of assorted seafood and pour this delicious sauce it simmers in over a favorite cooked pasta like angel hair or linguine.

If you're more of a mild white fish lover and not shellfish, try adding your favorite like flounder or grouper.

We are lucky here in Florida to be able to surf fish at the beach early in the morning and get a fresh catch on our lucky days to have for dinner.

Whenever you live, you can use any kind of fish in this delicate fresh seafood sauce.

I love haddock or codfish but that's a Northern fish and I try and buy it whenever available here and most of the time it's frozen.

I have used wahoo, grouper, Mahi and even some salmon, so there's no right or wrong kind to use, just use whatever you prefer!

This dish is great during Lent, Fish Friday, Christmas Eve on any Catholic meatless holiday menu.

Calling All Seafood Lovers

This pasta dish is the pure richness of the sea for sure

Who can resist a savory blend of seafood and pasta with a rich sauce then teaming up with some diced tomatoes over linguine?

This dish has all that and so much more.

It's like a delicious clam sauce and has the best of the best seafood in the pot but in a white clam sauce instead of tomato sauce.

The diced tomatoes are optional, but we love that extra flavor in with our seafood.
