Stella’s Fish Cafe offers a veritable plethora of satisfactory seafood delights that will tantalize the tastebuds. If you’re in a seafood rut, this is the right place to start. We’ve compiled a list of 6 delicious seafood dishes that you’ll be eager to try this holiday season. Let’s start with a delicious classic: oysters rockefeller.
This classic dish first appeared in New Orleans. Because of its rich flavors, it was named after the very wealthy John D. Rockefeller, the infamous oil tycoon. It starts with fresh, raw oysters. From there, they are topped with a variety of herbs and vegetation, including spinach and parsley. While the classic recipe calls for a butter sauce, Stella’s improved upon that idea with a luscious Creole hollandaise. Prosciutto and parmesan enhance the herbaceous flavors, followed by a sprinkling of breadcrumbs for texture. From there, the oysters are baked and served on the half shell. Oysters rockefeller are great for those palates seeking to mix up their normal shellfish routine.
If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, crab cakes may be in your future. While many crab cakes found in restaurants are full of imitation crab and other fillers, Stella’s uses only the freshest jumbo lump crab meat. We add in a twist of citrus and creamy aioli, creating a moist crab cake perfect for dipping in our chili vinaigrette.
Love salads and big flavors? A tuna nicoise can appeal to both! It starts with a pan seared tuna filet. Stella’s opts for the best of the best, crusting our rich ahi tuna in sesame. Your traditional nicoise is a tasty treat, packed full of green beans, potatoes, and eggs, but Stella’s takes it a step further with pickled green beans and a tomato tapenade that will leave you asking for more.
For those looking for a creole classic, our jambalaya is perfect. It’s a classic flavor combination packed full of hearty meats. Simmered rice and tomatoes create the base for our combination of chicken, shrimp, tasso ham, and spicy andouille sausage. It’s packed full of Creole spices and goes great with a glass of wine.
