Here’s to another great #SeafoodSunday, Seafoodies!
Archaeologists tell us that the uber-practical bowl dates back at least 20,000 years. So, this always-in-fashion serving dish has had plenty of time to build up an enthusiastic fan base. But just in the last few years, bowls have experienced a huge boost in popularity, the likes of which we haven’t seen since—and we’re just guessing here—the Ming dynasty. What gives? Could it be the handy shape? Or is it the sheer deliciousness of combining seafood with veggies, grains and seasonings in an all-in-one dish? Whatever the reason, count us among the yay-sayers: Bowls are abs-bowl-utely awesome!
Building a fabulous seafood bowl is a snap. Just pair some succulent seafood with other simple ingredients and a tangy sauce drizzled on top. This basic formula allows you to enjoy a variety of distinct tastes, colors and textures in one dish. Most bowls can be thrown together quickly, and many can be made ahead and pre-portioned to give you multiple servings for the week—a real time-saver! Or if you’re cooking for a crowd, go the self-serve route and set up a bowl-making station, so everyone can customize their meal to their liking.
