Summer in New Zealand is all about gorging on simply prepared seafood. This summer has been particularly seafood filled.
Here is a collection of five my favourite seafood recipes.

1. Steamed Garlic Prawns
Super easy recipe for Steamed Garlic Prawns, a very popular dish at Kingsland’s Canton Cafe. Includes a handy guide to prawn sizing in New Zealand.
2. Pan Fried Flounder
The most popular recipe on my blog by miles, this buttery golden pan fried flounder makes use of a whole flounder. You’ll need a flounder (or two) butter, more butter, flour, salt and pepper.
3. Raw Fish Salad
I fell in love with Ika Mata (raw fish salad) in Rarotonga. Here’s my version of it using fresh tuna fillets, though you can also use any firm white fish.
4. Oysters Kilpatrick
Oysters Kilpatrick are an easy crowd pleaser. Oystes, bacon, tasty sauce and cheese. What could go wrong?
5. All-in-one Seafood Stew
I test out Adie McClelland’s all-in-one seafood stew from her latest book Black Dog Cottage Cookbook.
