I’m going to start with a simple premise.
It’s a simple one: seafood is good.
I’ve been eating it for the past 20 years and I still feel it’s good.
And the next step is to figure out how to make it better.
If we don’t make it a better dish, it won’t be the dish we all want.
That’s why I’ve spent the last year looking for a way to create better seafood and why I’m looking for you, Frank.
So I’m asking you to join me as I take you on a journey to create the perfect seafood boil.
I want you to be part of the conversation.
This week I’m joined by my good friend and longtime friend, chef and food writer Andrew Schoenfeld.
Andrew is a professor of nutrition and food studies at Ohio State University and the author of The Complete Guide to Cooking for Health, Happiness and Success.
Andrew and I started out working together as food writers, cooking and producing documentaries together.
Andrew, who is also the founder and president of the Foodie blog, has been making the best seafood boil ever since he got back from a trip to the Caribbean.
Andrew has been on a mission to create delicious, flavorful, and affordable seafood, so you’ll hear about it this week.
We also talk about why you should cook a seafood boil even if you’re not a chef, how to use up leftover vegetables, and how to cook a good seafood boil at home.
We start by giving you the ingredients for a seafood pot, and then Andrew will walk you through the steps you’ll need to follow to make a seafood curry, an Indian-inspired shrimp and green beans curry, a shrimp and chicken curry, and even a seafood soup.
We talk about how you can make the best of your own seafood and also how to find out which ingredients work best together in a dish.
Andrew’s seafood boil recipe and tips for cooking with leftover veggies.
Andrew explains why you need to use all of your vegetables when cooking a seafood dish, how vegetables like onions and garlic help to create a good flavor, and the importance of using a vegetable broth in a fish and chicken soup.
Then, Andrew and Andrew share how they make a homemade, flavorful seafood pot.
We then take you through how to create an authentic seafood curry and how Andrew and his brother, chef Matt, create the best Indian-style curry in the world.
Finally, Andrew shares how to roast your own shrimp and then you get to taste it.
