What could be more romantic than a home-cooked seafood dinner? Nothing says “you’re a great catch” quite like a candlelit seafood dinner date at home. Make a lovely gesture and impress your significant other with your culinary skills and a home-cooked seafood dinner! 

The first step is to choose the right fish that not only suits your beau’s preferences, but is also something that you’re comfortable preparing. Cod, tuna, barramundi, and salmon are all good choices for a romantic dinner. They’re relatively easy to cook, and they’re also healthy and utterly delicious! 

Whether you’re looking for something light and delicate or hearty and filling, there’s a perfect fish dish out there for you. So, pick up some fresh fish online at your favourite fish supplier and get ready to go on a remarkable culinary journey!

1. Cod

Cod is incredibly easy to cook! A lean white fish that’s meaty and mild in flavour, cod is an extremely versatile fish known for its ability to absorb flavour from seasoning or sauces — easily allowing for a wide range of preparation methods. It pairs well with black pepper, garlic, and paprika, giving your dish an aromatic and almost buttery taste. Pan-fry, bake or grill cod for the best results. 

The best part? It is low in fat, high in protein, and contains loads of omega-3 fatty acids that can lower cholesterol, contribute to a healthier heart and keep your body in tip-top shape.

2. Salmon 

Always a crowd-pleaser, salmon is a healthy source of protein, low in calories, and high in omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon is also a versatile fish that can be cooked in many different ways.

For a quick and easy salmon dish, try using salt, pepper, garlic powder, and lemon juice for a quick and easy salmon dish. Simply sprinkle the seasonings over the top of the fish before baking it in the oven. The lemon juice will give the salmon a nice zing, while the other spices will add a beautiful depth of flavour.

If you want to get a little more creative, you can also try using different herbs and spices on your salmon. Some of our favourites include ginger, cilantro, and basil.

3. Sashimi

Of course, if you doubt your culinary skills, sashimi is your friend! Simply order some fresh fish online in Singapore and whip up a fancy Japanese meal at home.

For the icing on the cake, serve sashimi with pickled ginger and grated daikon radish. Of course, wasabi and soy sauce is a given.

4. Yellowfin tuna

Tuna is a fish that is high in protein and low in saturated fat. It is also an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for the heart. If you’re looking for an affordable fresh fish option, tuna is an excellent choice.

Serve pan-seared tuna with tomatoes, herbs and spices such as basil and mint. Other common side dishes include potatoes and vegetables such as spinach and carrots.

4. Barramundi 

Barramundi is a white-fleshed, sweet, buttery fish with a delicate flavour and firm texture. Barramundi can be baked, broiled, grilled, or fried with spices like cumin, ginger and garlic. You could also try using a spice rub or marinade on your barramundi before cooking it. This will help to add extra flavour and moisture to the fish.

Explore this fascinating fish and try it in fish and chips, or in a pesto sauce made from herbs, parmesan cheese, pine nuts and olive oil.
