Published 1:19 pm, Monday, April 16, 2018
Have you been loving the springtime weather! Hope you’re enjoying the cool temps AND our new showtime on KPRC for our television show Goodtaste with Tanji – 5 p.m. every Saturday afternoon. It puts me in the mood for lighter fare, like seafood. So, I put together a few of our fun seafood recipes – easy stuff that you can pull together in a jiffy.
For starters, tackle these Grilled Shrimp Tostadas with Black Bean Salsa from Goya Foods. If you haven’t tried Goya’s black beans, you are missing the best beans in a can you’ll ever taste! They’re really, really good. You’ll have these tostadas ready in less no time. https://www.goodtaste.tv/recipe/get-grilled-shrimp-tostadas-black-bean-salsa/
Another fresh idea is a towering Seafood Campechana with Gulf shrimp, crab and crispy tortilla chips. This recipe comes from our friends at Goode & Company. (I’m a regular for their Mexican breakfasts at their Tex-Mex spot on Kirby.) https://www.goodtaste.tv/recipe/goode-co-seafood-campechana/
Another tasty version is Chef CJ Johnston’s shrimp-only version at Tookie’s Seafood in Seabrook. This too has a vibrant tomato flavor throughout and a fun ‘secret’ ingredient – Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix. https://www.goodtaste.tv/recipe/tookies-campechana-cocktail/
One of my favorite seafood spots is Star Fish Coastal Kitchen & Bar in the Heights. The wine list is full of fun, approachable choices. They also serve tasty mini-martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives, perfect little starters for what’s always a delightful meal. Star Fish shared their recipe for their Grilled Oysters with Maître d’ Butter and Parmigiano Reggiano. Why not sip a little Rosé while you’re grilling! https://www.goodtaste.tv/recipe/star-fish-wood-grilled-oysters-with-maitre-d-butter-and-parmigiano-reggiano/
For another delicious twist on Gulf oysters, try State Fare Kitchen & Bar’s Roasted Oysters with fresh red bell pepper and spicy bourbon butter. https://www.goodtaste.tv/recipes/showrecipe/display/state-fare-roasted-gulf-oysters-on-the-half-shell
