Best uses for a Seafood Sauce: Here’s a Sneak Peek
Seafood items generally need some kind of condiment to pair with them. All the condiments used to pair with seafood should enhance their delicious rich taste and bring some freshness to them. Seafood sauce (น้ํา จิ้ม ซี ฟู๊ ด, which is the term in Thai) is generally made with crushed tomato, mayonnaise, and lemon juice. Some sauces might have added spices or herbs for extra flavor. These sauces are delicious and are used to increase the taste of your seafood. If you are looking for some unique combinations for your seafood sauce, here are some ideas.
● Grilled Shrimps
Shrimps and seafood sauce is the most classic pairing. But the traditional way is to use the sauce with boiled shrimp. Even though this is a delicious option in itself, you can step it up a notch. You can marinate your shrimp in your favorite herbs, lemon juice, and a little bit of barbeque seasoning and throw them on a grill. This grilled shrimp with a seafood sauce tastes heavenly. It is a great party food too and brings an air of sophistication to your outdoor barbeque get-togethers with friends and family.
Now this is a more uncommon option but it is just as delicious. Pan sear your favorite sausages and put the seafood sauce, add in a little bit of honey and cook until the sauce reduces and so that it fully coats the sausages- you can cut the sausages up into bite-sized pieces or keep them whole. These can be served as a great appetizer for a crowd. This is a great alternative way to use a seafood sauce in something other than seafood.
● Salad Dressing
This seems like an obvious option even though not a lot of people seem to use it. A good seafood sauce will have enough freshness to it to be used as a salad dressing. You can use it in a traditional chicken salad with a lot of greens like lettuce, spinach or you can use it in a tuna salad with green onions and lettuce. It will taste great with a vegetarian salad as well. If you think salads taste bland, now you have a solution- just add the best seafood sauce (น้ํา จิ้ม ซี ฟู๊ ดร ส เด็ด, term in Thai) you can find and you’re all set!
