This seafood platter was prepared for our threesome Valentine's Day. It was just a simple affair at home in February, pairing this dish with a bottle of Moscato and Toasted Foie Gras Ciabatta. The Duchessa Lia Moscato d'Asti, a gift from my BFF, is a sweet sparkling wine which is perfect for the special occasion.

The hightlight of the Sauvignon Blanc Seafood Platter is the Emerald Whole Crawfish ( 清水小龙虾 ) which I found in NTUC Finest some time back.

I was intrigued by the box of baby lobsters and knew I just had to bring these babies home to experiment. Hence, the idea of this shellfish platter was born.

The most versatile wine to cook seafood is probably with a dry, crisp white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc.

Using the tray of Thyme Leaves Olive Oil Ice Cubes in my freezer, together with butter, bacon bits, and dunking in the white wine, the tasty sauce brings the seafood to another level of umaminess. My family loves it, and I certainly hope you do too!

The succulent seafood, dipped into the garlicky and buttery white wine sauce, is simply heavenly! Have you come across these Crawfish aka Baby Lobsters? Honestly, they don't have a lot of meat in them but they are such a novelty, don't you think so?

  5. wahlau!!! it's a cake, nope, it's a pizza nope! it's a mouth-watering oceanic love!! this is sooooooo mouth watering for me...i have a suggestion, what if you can include a layer of bread would be way beyond perfection haha...thanks for sharing!

    1. Hey, that sounds like a good idea too! But I prefer my bread to be crispy, so serving them separately in a basket will not affect the texture of the bread. Love too see your doing it your way too, Hong! xoxo
