Seafood Delight Recipe

For the big seafood lovers out there, this recipe is perfect for you. It is called Seafood Delight or Mixed Seafood with Oyster Sauce. Whatever name it is called, it is guaranteed to fill your appetite and craving for seafood.

This dish is popular in the Philippines due to the abundance of seafood the whole year round. The markets are overflowing with seafood and they can be cooked in countless ways from simple steaming, grilling and mixing with vegetables in various sauces.      

This Seafood Delight Recipe is a combination of several seafood – crabs, mussels, squid, shrimps, scallops and clams, and combined with spices and oyster sauce to bring out their distinct flavors and taste. You don’t need to have all the mentioned seafood to prepare this dish, you can use whatever is available in the market.  For those who can’t have them fresh, you can use the frozen pre-packaged seafood mix that most supermarkets sell. It may look so complicated but it is easy and quick to prepare.

For this recipe, I used shrimps, squid, mussels and clams. You can add chilies, red pepper flakes or other spicy ingredients if you prefer it to be on the hotter side. This is best served hot with steamed white rice for dinner or lunch or as pulutan, a side dish during drinking sessions. Hope you enjoy this Seafood Delight recipe for it truly is a gastronomical delight from the Philippines to your dining table.
