Savory Summer Seafood

August 18, 2014

If you can’t think of any more innovative ways to prepare summer seafood, with Las Palmas sauces, achieving impressive flavors for your prawns and shellfish are within reach. Best of all, the following featured dishes enhance the taste of the day’s freshest catch and can be prepared from start to finish in minutes.

For one-of-a-kind grilled flavor, try your favorite fish fillet Las Palmas-style! For this delectable meal, place your salt and peppered tilapia fillets on a lightly oiled grill. Cook the fillets for about 8-10 minutes, turning 90 degrees halfway between cooking on each side to attain desired grill marks. Spoon some warmed Las Palmas Green Enchilada Sauce over the top of each fillet and serve with white rice and fried plantains for some authentic Latin flare.

Mouthwatering one-pot meals are easy go-to meals that can be prepared in a snap. Arroz con Mariscos is filled with lots of fresh octopus, clams, prawns and chucks of white fish. This paella-like meal gets an extra kick of flavor with the Las Palmas Red Chile Sauce added to the recipe during the cooking process. It’s a meal fit for Neptune.

Did someone say, “what about shrimp?” Las Palmas has shrimp lovers covered too. Whether it’s spicy Camarones a la Diabla (Deviled Shrimp), Camarones a la Mexicana or Cancun-style shrimp, everyone loves shrimp for their versatility. For any of these three dishes, lightly sauté the shrimp in a skillet then add them to a saucepan of your favorite Las Palmas Chile Sauce. Simmer 3-4 minutes. Plate all these delectable shrimp recipes with a side of rice.

There is nothing like winding down the season with seafood meals that can be enjoyed individually, as a romantic summer lunch or dinner for two, or as a family style dinner anywhere. Seafood is simple summer food on a plate at its best – with a little help from Las Palmas. Bon appétit!
