Seafood Combo Meals - A Healthy Alternative

Seafood combo meals are not only tasty but are also easy to prepare. The variety of seafood available is more and it is hard to go wrong in selection. All the ingredients which are necessary to prepare Seafood combo meals can be had from your local grocery store.

One of the best things about a seafood combo meal is that you get more than one item or type of seafood in your meal. The only thing better than eating lobster tail for dinner is to eat both lobster tail and Alaskan King Crab. Having both items in the same meal just makes the experience that much more satisfying.

It's easiest to prepare things you already like, as your cooking instincts will be more accurate. Of course, if you're not an experienced cook and your favorite combo is two pound lobster and scallops, it may be best to start with something easier and work your way up. If you're new to cooking it's best to start with simpler items, such as shrimp or fish fillets. If you're not sure what kind of food you'd like the most, try to find a fresh seafood sampler at your local grocery.

When preparing any seafood dish, the easiest cooking method is pan-fry. Start with your favorite pasta and a bag of cocktail, or frozen shrimp. It's fairly easy to find these pre-cooked, so you won't risk under-cooking the meal.One very easy starter dish is shrimp pasta.

First, keep all the required ingredients ready. Set out the pasta, a pot of water to boil it in, the shrimp, a frying pan and the favorite oils and spices. The last two can be olive oil, basil leaves and garlic powder. Start boiling the pasta and heat the frying pan. Pour a little oil in the pan and add the shrimp. After sprinkling basil leaves and garlic powder on top, stir the shrimp around the pan till oil and spices are mixed thoroughly with the shrimp.

You can turn down the heat slightly when the shrimp begin to sizzle, so that they simmer quietly in the pan. You could add some vegetables for added flavor. I prefer adding some tomatoes and chopped onions. Shrimp continues to simmer absorbing the flavor of the oil and spices while the pasta is getting cooked.

After the pasta reaches the desired softness, strain it and place it on a plate. Pour the contents of the frying pan over the pasta and mix together. Have a side dish of garlic bread or caesar salad and a healthy seafood combo meal is ready. You can prepare several different kinds of seafood combo meals. As in any activity, here too you learn by practice and so, keep cooking till you find your favorite.

As with so many other food items, making your seafood combo meal purchase online is always a great idea. With the advent of overnight delivery by Fedex and UPS it is very feasible to have seafood straight from the northeastern seaboard shipped right to your house.
