Living as we do in South Africa with her long shorelines, we are lucky to enjoy abundant ocean life – and yet many people are hesitant when it comes to cooking seafood dishes. Well, we’ve rounded up a couple of iconic (but easy) dishes to master. They’re all delicious and wonderfully local – bragging rights guaranteed.

Mussels in beer broth with garlic-mayo toast

With a prep time and cooking time of 15 minutes each, this dish is a breeze to make. And with mussels widely available in South Africa, we should really be cooking with them more. Bonus – use a nice local pale ale for the broth!

Easy tomato-hake curry

While it’s true that we often cook with hake – have you ever tried it in a curry? Throw in a warm roti and you’ve got all the makings of a feast.

Get even closer to the sea

The only thing better than enjoying plenty of seafood is enjoying it close by the sea. Sound appealing? Then you should know about Kabeljauws Beach in Jeffreys Bay, the only beachfront estate in South Africa to combat global warming through a hidden layer of protection against rising tides and stormy weather. Which means that you physically cannot live closer to the beach – anywhere in South Africa.

Consisting of 44 upmarket penthouses, apartments, freestanding homes and rowhouses, the style is classically modernist, the engineering eco-friendly and the security state-of-the-art.

And the best part? You can afford this lock-up-and-go lifestyle from R1 255 000. If you can see yourself living here, or if you want to find out more, click here: kabeljauwsbeach.co.za.
