3 warming seafood dishes to beat the winter blues

Winter is (officially) here, but let’s not sulk. Here are 3 warming seafood dishes with a hint of summer to keep the winter blues at bay. Pair with a nice glass of white wine, and what’s not to love?


Yes it’s true, winter is officially here. Shorter days, grey skies, etc. But if you’re not a winter person, there are loads of ways to hold on to summer, and one way is to cook up a warming seafood dish (and perhaps pour a nice glass of white wine with it). It’s the perfect plan for those crisp and sunny winter days that are bound to arrive – this is sunny South Africa, after all. Bon appetit!

Tomato-and-yoghurt fish curry with green beans and Indian fried bread

This fragrant – but not overly spicy – fish curry will do much to save you from the winter blues, thanks to the summery addition of fresh tomatoes and green beans.

Seafood pasta with tomato and basil

Few things say summer like a twirly bowl of seafood pasta, especially if you throw in some fresh basil. Never made it before? Now’s your chance. It’s easy, it’s delicious, it’s the perfect dish to master while you wait for winter to pass.

In the mood for a glass of white? (Especially now that we can buy wine again?) Cape Point Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect choice. With a riot of fruity flavours on the nose – apricot, pear, apple, granadilla – and a hint of fynbos and dried herbs, this wine is pure sunshine in a glass. With its bright and refreshing acidity, it will drink well now, but the aromas will still develop beautifully for the next two to five years. Cheers!
