Have you ever purchased a frozen bag of mixed seafood? I had done that once and I was not necessarily pleased with it. So, this week, I had some small portions of various seafood at home and decided to make my own mix. The result was fabulous and of course, my husband ate the whole darn thing, smile!
Approx. Prep and Cook Time: 35 Minutes
Approximate Cost: $19.40 or $6.47 per serving
Difficulty Level: Easy
Allergens, Other: Gluten Free
2 Fresh cod filet, sliced on generous rectangles ($3.70)
9 large shrimp ($3.95)
2 large Octopus tentacles ($8.00)
1 tsp. Angie’s Dry Seasonings (.20)
1 ½ tbsp. Angie’s Basting Olive Oil (.45)
1 large Rosemary spring (.10)
1 box of Parmesan Couscous ($2.00)
5 med to large Shiitake mushrooms, chopped ($1.00)
Directions to make My Seafood mix:
Season the cod and large shrimp with 1 tsp. Angie’s Dry Seasonings and 1 ½ tbsp. Angie’s Basting Olive Oil. Refrigerate.
Pat dry the octopus and cut in about 1” pieces diagonally. Sauté them with the mushrooms in 1 tbsp. of my basting oil until golden. Remove the mushrooms first. In the same pan, sauté the shrimp until golden and remove immediately to not overcook them. Start making the Couscous now and meanwhile, add all the seafood pieces to the pan to keep them warm. Start plating.
Directions to make Parmesan Couscous:
Follow the box directions, you only need the box and my basting oil. Cooks in no time.
