Here are our 11 best seafood recipes.

Seafood Recipes- I've never shared this with anyone before... But I could easily give up chicken. However, when it comes to seafood? That's my Achilles heel. I dream of Goan prawn curry served with poee, creamy lobster bisque, fish wrapped in banana leaf, bourbon-glazed salmon (yum!). Come on, do you blame me? Seafood is the perfect ingredient for soups, salads, curries and more. And while I've always been more into eating than cooking, I admit - seafood is the perfect choice for a quick yet luxurious weeknight dinner or an express lunch. (Side note: I want a plate full of char-grilled calamari with rustic guacamole right about now).

When it comes to cooking seafood, there are a dizzying number of ways to choose from - some quick, some healthy and some just plain easy. If you wish to pop it on the grill to seal in the moisture, nutrients and flavour, make sure you baste beforehand to prevent it from drying out. If you want to cook your seafood along with greens, herbs or spices, baking is a fantastic method. Coat with oil or butter before baking, and wrap in kitchen foil first (especially if you're baking shellfish). If you want to skip deep frying, and choose to shallow fry instead, coat thoroughly in a batter or breadcrumbs and fry in just 2-3 tablespoons of oil for around 4-5 minutes.

Marinate, marinate, marinate! Although seafood is yummy as is, you can take it up a notch by marinating with herbs, spices, seasonings or sauces. Don't marinate for long, since the seafood tends to break. Spruce it up with a garlic and herb marinade or just add a splash of wine or beer to make your standby sauce stand out.
