How to make a Seafood Bake:
Conch, lobster and clams will probably be the costliest ingredients for this dish. This dish is very special and can be prepared for special occasions, and for special people? I am talking about people who appreciate you, people who will not waste your food, interested individuals you can relate to.
The original recipe from Chef de Rozieres is prepared with Mediterranean prawns, whelks, sunflower oil, chili powder and light cream. I chose to update or make my own version of the recipe. The new recipe is prepared with jumbo shrimp, conch, grapeseed oil, hot pepper and heavy cream. I substituted regular salt for Himalayan salt just by choice and added more Parmesan cheese. The cooking instructions partially differ from my instructions as well.
Light cream may not be easy to find in many areas. I substituted the light cream with heavy cream to make the recipe easier to prepare. Heavy cream is a choice and make the texture of the seafood bake a bit fluffier. You may choose to add low fat milk to the heavy cream if you prefer a less fluffier texture.
As far as seafood, any firm fish might work. I would recommend to use Parmesan cheese for its texture, sharpness and dryness. Grated Parmesan cheese is a great addition to many dishes. The cheese binds all the ingredients by creating a delicious, mouthwatering creamy taste.
