I used to eat a lot of seafood as a child. Living in Montpellier, I was really close to the sea and eating fish, shellfish and crustaceans was common and usual.
However since I live in Switzerland, it is not so easy to find the kind of seafood I want. In my local supermarket, products you will almost always find are cod, shrimps and salmon. You can find other fishes of course; but to be honest I do not always really know where to begin, how to prepare them. To top it all off, they often block internet in supermarket so if you want to quickly find a recipe to get an idea of what kind of vegetables or others products you may need… you can’t.
As a result this is quite difficult to find continuously new ideas to make fish. You kind of get bored.
I promise I will try to find a good fish market. Manor is quite good and they told me I can order. So I think I will do so next time I want to make some seafood.
In the meantime, I used salmon today. I made this crusted salmon recipe with old style mustard and fresh tarragon. Delicious and surprising! I am convinced you can decline this recipe with other fish species.
