Unusual Pairings: Seafood and Cheese
The very thought of seafood and cheese may send all traditionalists into meltdown, however, at Big Prawn, we’re not scared of a unusual pairing – particularly when it tastes so good!
This foodie rule is a typical Italian doctrine, however, there are many dishes that work perfectly together that include both seafood and cheese! Naturally, you have to be careful about how you’re pairing and cooking them together, but even a quick trip to French cuisine and you’ll find this combination.
Although Italians might hate the thought of seafood and cheese together, seafood pasta with lashings of parmesan on top is hard to resist! Keep it simple with this king prawn fettuccine. All you need is garlic, olive oil, lemon, parsley, and pasta water to make the sauce with some gently fried prawns. Add some parmesan into the sauce, and serve with plenty!
