As a Mom of two girls who also works outside of the home full time, dinners must be quick and easy. Because we live in the New Orleans area, we definitely love our seafood. But with so many excellent seafood restaurants on just about every corner, we rarely cook seafood at home. To be honest, preparing seafood can be very time consuming…time that I just do NOT have.
I know that frozen seafood can make the process much easier, but the words frozen and seafood are never put into the same sentence in New Orleans. So when I was invited to the SeaBest Seafood event, to say that I was a skeptic would have been an understatement. But on my never-ending quest to find easy meal solutions, I was definitely curious.
About SeaBest Seafood:
“In 1950, the Frisch family opened a small, retail fresh fish store on West Beaver Street in Jacksonville, Florida called Beaver Street Fisheries. Together with their mother, brothers Alfred and Hans Frisch worked around the clock to expand their business. With a single truck, they procured a variety of fish from both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts by night, delivering their product fresh to Jacksonville area hotels, restaurants and grocery stores by day.
Over six decades later, the family-owned business that began as a street-side shop with just a handful of help has grown into a company employing over 400 dedicated men and women. During our growth, the Frisch family also introduced the Sea Best brand, a name that speaks to our longtime commitment of putting the highest quality seafood on America’s tables for the best price.”
As I walked into the venue, two appetizers greeted us: the Buffalo Shrimp Dip and the Scallop Egg Rolls. Both were delicious! As the event began, we were treated to a cooking demonstration of three entrees that would not only please our families, but would be easy to cook, too! The one that I liked the most was the Ahi Tuna Melt. Check out the recipe below:
All of the dishes we tried were absolutely delicious and tasted fresh. Watching how easy it was to prepare seafood we normally do not purchase was definitely was an eye-opener. I have the confidence in SeaBest Seafood to step outside of my comfort zone and try new seafood dishes.
