What is Seafood Marinara?
Seafood Marinara is simply a mix of different seafoods such as prawns, mussels, and calamari. The seafood is seasoned with butter, garlic, and onion for a savory and pungent flavor, along with fish spice that consists of flavors of dill, garlic, paprika, ginger, and salt and black pepper. If you wish, you can make the fish spice yourself to cut costs if you already have these spices. The seafood is cooked in a pan with the seasoning as well as white wine, lemon juice, and honey to create a sauce. We suggest using a crisp and dry white wine that you like the taste of. The acidity in the wine will ensure that the seafood is tender and moist. After 15 minutes of gentle simmering, cream is added to thicken the sauce and to give it some richness and a silky texture.
We Really Do Mean it when We Say ‘Simple’!
