FESTIVE FOOD

Roast turkey is all well and good but an Australian Christmas has to feature fresh seafood. Always go for the best quality you can afford. Select seafood that looks shiny and moist â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the eyes on f sh should be clear and not sunken, while the scales should be shiny and not dry. When selecting oysters, they should look moist and plump and not sunken in the shells. Prawns should have a glossy appearance and plump eyes.

Seafood should be stored between zero and four degrees, but because our fridges are often too full at Christmas, they are not cold enough for seafood. The answer? Place 10 centimetres of ice on the bottom of an Esky, and sprinkle a handful of salt over the top to harden the ice. If you have a lot of seafood, you can create layers of ice and seafood. Stored this way, quality seafood will last two to three days.

Short on time but still want to impress your guests? Pt Cartwright Seafood Market has ready-made dishes that just need heating. Pick up some oysters kilpatrick, Tasmanian scallop mornay, Italian herbed mussels, herb and dijon crusted salmon or lobster mornay.

Try these accompaniments from Buderim Ginger Shoppe. Gwydir Grove Olive Oil, $12.30, is perfect for cooking or barbecues, or drizzle it over your Christmas lunch salad. Try zesty lemon or spicy chilli and fresh lime. Doodles Creek Salsa Verde, $14.50, is gluten and dairy free and a perfect match to your seafood dinner.
