Oysters Three Ways is our go-to for a quick 5 minute party starter – Kilpatrick, Ponzu with Lemon Thyme and Soy with Ginger. Entertaining done, and just in time for Christmas!
Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it’s three days til Christmas already…🎄 But it’s actually perfect timing, since today we’re sharing our Oysters Three Ways!
Every Christmas for as long as I can remember, my parents have celebrated Christmas with a seafood and sparkling wine brunch, which is just what you need before a massive roast feast.
(P.S. If you’re looking for Christmas deliciousness, check out our list of Edible Christmas Presents!)
Alongside Wanderdad’s beloved king prawns mum would serve up her piece de resistance – smoky Oysters Kilpatrick straight from the oven. The smell of that heady mix of Worcestershire sauce, barbecue sauce and bacon always evokes those special mornings; torn wrapping paper strewn around the room, laugher and cheers and fun.
Since then our wandering adventures have led us experiment with the humble oyster, so today without further ado, let us present three of our favourite oyster recipes from our trip!
Indonesian Curry with Fish (Kari Ikan). Creamy coconut, tangy lemongrass and tender white fish in a vibrant yellow Indonesian curry sauce. Delicately spiced and gorgeously aromatic, this is the winter curry winner in our books!
Waaah. How did life become so busy? It feels like weekdays slip through our fingers and weekends come and go in the blink of an eye.
And we don’t like it! 😛
We’ve been so busy lately that we’re even struggling to find time to cook, which is REALLY SAD for a couple of food addicted bloggers.
So how do we keep our schedules running and our tummies full at the same time?
Get ready to have some fiery fun in the kitchen with this Flaming Charcoal Fish in Banana Leaves. Chunky fish steak + unbelievably delicious tomato-based sauce + banana leaves + FIRE. Lots and lots of fire. You might want to get that extinguisher ready.
This hearty banana-leaf-wrapped deliciousness comes to you all the way from Hoi An, Vietnam, but what sets it apart from other recipes (like this light and creamy Lao Steamed Fish), is that you get to set this one ON FIRE.
Simple yet thoroughly delicious, these Vietnamese Grilled Scallops are full of melt-in-your-mouth goodness. Like heaven on a shell, they’re the perfect appetiser or seafood snack. This is one of the easiest meals we’ve stumbled across in Vietnam.
The perfect lunch by the beach, grill these bad boys with amazing spring onion and peanuts for the TASTIEST Vietnamese Grilled Scallops you can imagine.
Bring the exotic flavours of Laos to your table with this zesty Lao Steamed Fish (Mok Pa). Wrapped in a banana leaf and infused with essential Lao ingredients, this scrumptious steamed fish looks amazing and is sure to be a hit with friends and family.
So… We’d fully intended to have this post up yesterday, but a home cooked feast and generous pourings of rice wine from our new hosts in the mountainous city of Da Lat, Vietnam, made for an amusing change to our plans.
