It is not just fruit & vegetables that are at their best during the Autumn months, fish is also particularly appetising around this time of year.
However, this isn’t just fish in regards of cod or haddock (which we love!) But much more delectable flavours. September is particularly one of our favourite months of the year as oysters are at their best – along with mussels and scallops.
This makes for fantastic canapés which we love to serve at many dinner parties in and around the North West area. Mussels are wonderful when simply paired with a nice bread as a starter. Or add them to a fish broth along with prawns for a gorgeous warming taste.
Scallops are one of our favourite starters to serve and they do not take long to prepare. They are fabulous served as a starter perhaps very simply with salad leaves, don’t forget to add cucumber to your salad – that’s in season right now too!
Crab is another seafood which is at its best in September. Crab cakes are a classic dish which are relatively simple to make and give a lovely taste! Or, if you would like to create a taste of the deep south then you could cook up a gumbo! Crab is such a versatile meat which can be cooked so fabulously in all manner of dishes to give you a wonderful taste sensation.
So why not out together a mixed seafood broth with a large combination of tastes to really impress guests at your Autumn dinner party?
A tip from us: Oysters are beautiful when paired with parsley fennel and thyme.
