I am a lover of (most) seafood — especially in summer.
Fish is light, easy to cook, versatile — and can even be eaten raw (though I am a veggie sushi girl).
If someone asked me what the perfect summer meal would consist of, I would likely say: fish, fresh vegetables or salad and fresh fruit — washed down with a NorCal Margarita or some chilled wine.
I picture myself on a patio on a warm, slightly breezy day, wearing a sundress and Kentucky Derby-esque hat with sunglasses and no shoes.
So far this summer, despite the uncooperative Wisconsin weather (Mother Nature can’t decide between winter and summer — and there has been no spring), we have eaten fish several times of late. There is a great retail fish market near where I live — and we’ve become regulars! They have, hands down, the best fish!
Today’s “Daily Delicious” features a ridiculously gorgeous picture from Paleo blogger “The Domestic Man” of a spread of steamed Dungeness crab. I could probably stand at one end of the line and eat my way to the other end 🙂
“The Domestic Man” even goes as far as to provide detailed instructions as to how to perfect your steamed crab: http://thedomesticman.com/2011/05/02/steamed-dungeness-crab/
This was listed on “The Domestic Man’s” website as a suggestion for a Memorial Day feast — and I must say I might prefer a vat of these crabs with a vat of butter over a greasy burger (despite my two previous “Daily Delicious” posts.)
SIDE NOTE: REALLY amazing food photography here, and VERY creative recipes! I already want to try the Caldo Verde — Portugese Kale and Sausage Soup recipe he posted on May 28th.
