Festive seafood feasts

By TASTE, 25 November 2019

It’s just not Christmas without a seafood spread and Woolworths has your every shellfish and fish need covered.


It’s just not Christmas without a lavish seafood spread and, thanks to Woolworths, it’s all taken care of. Embrace easy summertime dining with butterflied prawns and half-shell black mussels, both prepared and ready for quick cooking. Or let seafood take centre-stage on the Christmas table with an impressive roast salmon side, accompanied by a seasonal fynbos honey glaze, or Woolworths’ innovative kingklip, smoked trout and prawn roses, ideal for those looking for some fresh festive inspiration.

Looking for something even more special? Now you can enjoy eating abalone at home, with Woolworths’ sustainably sourced Cape abalone. This easy-to- cook mollusc is known for its pure ocean flavour and tender texture, and is delicious eaten grilled or fried. Woolworths’ abalone is responsibly farmed at Danger Point in the Western Cape and feeds on an all-natural, mainly seaweed, diet. Farmed South African abalone is sought after by top chefs worldwide – so go ahead and indulge yourself!


Serving suggestion: Cook the mussels and prawns according to package instructions, then drizzle with the garlic butter. Roast the salmon side according to package instructions and finish with the fynbos honey glaze once out of the oven. Cook the kingklip, trout and prawn roses according to package instructions and serve with lemon butter. For the abalone: clean and score the abalone, and sear quickly in 1 T sesame oil over a high heat on both sides until golden. Finish off with 1 T butter. Serve with an Asian dressing made using 4 T soya sauce, 2 T freshly squeezed lime juice and 1 T sesame oil. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and coriander.
