Saucing Up Your Seafood

Pre-mixed marinadesWhen you walk into FRESH, one of the first things you see is the seafood case filled with fresh fillets, whole fish, shrimp, scallops, crab legs and so much more.

You will also find a great selection of prepared items, marinated fillets and delicious sauces. It is truly the best selection of fresh seafood in East Texas.

Recently, it’s the sauces I’ve been giving a try. Each one is made in-house with fresh, unprocessed ingredients. Cocktail sauce, remoulade, tartar and Asian marinade – so many great flavors to choose from.

Fresh cocktail, remoulade and tartar sauce can make a big difference when serving shrimp cocktail or oysters. When you use the Asian marinade on fillets, there’s a great combination of sweet, savory and spicy that makes salmon, tuna, shrimp or scallops taste amazing.

Having these FRESH seafood sauces at your fingertips takes a lot of work out of preparation and has much better flavor when compared to bottled versions.

So, whatever fish you choose, be sure to check out the FRESH seafood sauces before you walk away from the seafood case. Here’s a recipe for salmon that uses the Asian marinade.

Cedar Plank Salmon

1 pkg cedar planks
2 salmon fillets
1/2 cup FRESH Asian marinade, plus more for basting

Soak planks in water for at least 2 hours. Place the fillets in a shallow dish and add the marinade. Marinate for 30 minutes.

Place the planks on one side of the grill and turn the grill to high on the side that does not have the planks. Close lid while preheating.

When the grill and planks are hot, place the fillets on the planks. Close the lid and cook for 10 minutes. Watch for flare-ups and spray with water to eliminate any flames. After 10 minutes, baste the fillets with more of the marinade. Fillets do not need to be turned.

Cook to desired doneness, and remove the planks and fish from the grill. If the planks are not too charred, they can be washed in warm water and used again. Be sure to soak again, as well.

Note: This method can be used for any type of fish and is great for fish that is usually too thin or flakey for grilling.
