Summertime at the coast is a wonderful time of the year. Swimming at the beach, ice cream cones and of course, lots of seafood meals shared with friends. We’ve rounded up 8 of our favourite hot and cold seafood dishes - ideal for lazy lunches or even glam dinner parties! 

1. Salmon mousse timbales

With the help of a handy muffin tray, you can easily make these smoked salmon parcels filled with a light and creamy salmon mousse. They’re the perfect make-ahead starter course for Boxing Day lunch or even a picnic under the trees. Serve with crackers and a cold glass of wine!

3. Summer fish Caprese salad

We love this summery salad with snoek, served with lots of olive oil and a side of fresh bread. The fresh basil adds a great flavour, and who doesn’t love fresh Mozzarella? 

4. Low carb trout "sushi"

This was one of our best recipes of the year - because it is so delicious and so easy! It’s a great recipe if you want to get the kids involved in the kitchen, and the results are so impressive!

8. Paella

The one pan meal that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. We love paella for its versatility, heartiness and the fun of eating seafood with your hands. A great main course for a dinner party, served with a wooded Chardonnay for an all round 10 out of 10 meal!
