I enjoy nothing more than sitting by the beach on a hot summer’s day in the Australian sun and digging into some fresh seafood. Of course, I always love a good deep- fried flake, chips and calamari, but some gourmet, local and freshly cooked seafood just makes you feel that little bit more classy. So come Good Friday and you will find the butchers empty and the fish and seafood markets/ shops filled to the brim with excited customers ready to buy that delicious looking crab basket and bucket of prawns. Here are some fishy ideas for your next Good Friday, or when you’re in a seafood mood:
