    Recipe Request: Fish/Seafood for One or Two

    Mon Mar 06, 2006 7:06 pm Groupie

    I live alone, so it's hard for me to cook fish - since it doesn't exactly keep well.

    Can you recommend some fish and seafood recipes that serve just one person (or two: for me and my significant other)?

    Here is one recipe for 1 serving - it s very easy and quite tasty recipe #106819 Spicy baked cod by dienia bennett
    This one is excellent and cuts back perfectly

    Welcome Reddyrat! You might want to search for fish/seafood dishes as appetizers, as they ususally make less, Here are a few more that might work
    Crab and Shrimp Squares recipe #78863
    Barbecued Piggy Scallops recipe #26101

    Also, try Chili's Spicy Garlic & Lime Shrimp recipe #76470 as it easily reduces and Easy Macaroni Salad With Shrimp recipe #96354 makes a bunch, but I love to eat it all week!

    Hi Alison,

    I'm in a similar situation, I love seafood and have a few hints for you. I noticed your original post mentioned fish not keeping well and recipes for one/two but as any recipe can be halved easily it may more be the storage and purchase that will make things easier:

    Most seafood is frozen during transit anyway, it is often only thawed for display and sale purposes so if you ask the vendor for it in frozen form they just walk out the back and get it from their freezer. It will keep for months in your freezer and just thaw yourself in some warm water, it only takes about 10 minutes to get it ready to cook. A bonus is many foods are cheaper this way anyway, raw frozen green prawns and shrimps are good examples where they are a lot cheaper but keep better in frozen form and only need boiling or grilling to eat.

    When you see really nice fish that is genuinely fresh either freeze or even better use a vaccum packaging system so it will keep in the refrigerator a few weeks. Personally I use a Kambrook FoodSaver although am I in Australia so don't know if that's an available brand where you are, but assume it would be under some brand name.

    When I eat seafood like live Oysters I just plan to eat them within a few days of purchase, personally I go to a market that has nice Oysters over the weekend so just eat them over the Sunday - Tuesday timeframe.

    Finally if you were just after some nice simple recipes that suit one or two try my public seafood cookbook:

    Welcome Allison,
    For one or two...try this. I buy fish in packages of 4-6 fillets; immediately I repackage by place individual fillets on a cookie sheet pop in the freezer-when completely frozen (may have thawed slightly in handling), I pack in a zippy bag and use as many as I want for a meal. Same with shrimp, scallops, etc.--just spread out, not touching, freeze, and repack. Easy and safe. If fresh, do the same thing. HTH, Caroline
