Have you ever eaten a restaurant that had “hot” or “spicy” sauces with oysters? If so, then you probably understand how important it is not to overindulge. If you have ever been in a restaurant that has this as an available option for you, then it means that they were hoping you would order more. It was not just an effort to increase their profits but also an attempt to make your palate tingle and allow you to experience the delicious flavor. Even if you are able to resist the overwhelming flavors, don’t you think they overstepped their boundaries a bit?
Most restaurants that serve seafood will have oysters in the cocktail sauce with chicken or steak. Most people have no idea that oysters are a type of mollusk and they grow on oysters in the warmer months of the year. The taste can vary greatly depending on the oysters used, seasonings and other items used. For example, early spring through early summer will have a much different taste than summer through fall.
This is a personal opinion, but I believe that when a restaurant serves food that should be consumed with caution, then it is not a perfect place to go to eat. If you have ever eaten oysters, then you know that there is an intense sensitivity to the flavor. There is nothing like freshly harvested oysters in the warmer months. For me, a restaurant that offers this as an available option is not a good choice to go to. I have seen some restaurants that have a selection of oysters for sale during certain seasons. It does make sense though because this is how they are able to maintain a supply throughout the year.
Another example is the use of crispy fresh shrimp in cocktail sauce with oysters. This is definitely a good option if you are looking for a creamy, smooth flavor and texture. The problem is that there is usually only a limited amount of shrimp to go around at any given time. If you don’t have a lot of luck finding them, you could consider another seafood recipe such as baked Maine lobster or scallops with a cream sauce.
There are other dishes in a restaurant that can actually ruin the experience. Fried calamari is one example of this. When it has been lightly battered in batter and deep fried, it really lacks flavor, which defeats the purpose of using it in a seafood dish.
If you are looking for a tasty Asian restaurant that offers crispy Asian dishes, look for one that also serves Thai, Chinese, or Japanese food. These dishes will come covered with a light batter that will not stick to your teeth or tongue. In addition, most Asian restaurants will offer crunchy vegetables on top of the food. If there is a lack of crunch, the vegetable will be soft instead of crisp.
Now let’s get back to our first example, ramen. The key word in ramen noodles. Most restaurants will serve this dish with a light batter and a sauce made from seafood. This is a very common choice, but it doesn’t taste very good. If you want to experience a much better version, consider going to a Vietnamese or Japanese restaurant where they make their own noodles.
If you’re in search of Chinese restaurant serving seafood in your area, look up some online reviews and recipes. In many cases, you will find that these dishes are not very common in places like Chinatown, so the recipes will be much more difficult to find online. However, if you can find a restaurant in a busy urban area, you should have no problem finding some obscure dishes that are just as delicious. Just remember the key word when searching: “chef”.
