Fritto misto di pesce
Fritto misto di pesce, an assortment of fried seafood, is very popular in Campania, as well as the rest of Italy. However, fritto misto is one of those recipes that varies greatly from region to region. It will always include crustaceans and mollusks, mainly shrimp and squid, and frequently paranza, which is a collective term for extremely small whole fish like as fresh anchovies, sardines, baby mackerel, and mullet.
Depending on the location, fritto misto is sometimes batter-fried, but the easiest way to prepare it is by lightly coating the item in flour and deep-frying it in hot oil until a golden crust forms.
Arroz con camarones
Popular throughout Latin America, especially in Peru and Mexico, is arroz with camarones. It comprises of shrimp, peppers, tomatoes, and onions coupled with rice that has been cooked in a savoury shrimp broth. Traditionally, the dish is seasoned with cumin, garlic, and achiote, and garnished with finely chopped parsley.
It is possible to serve arroz with camarones with a variety of condiments, including lime wedges, spicy sauce, avocado slices, and fried plantains.
In Louisiana, the season of Lent preceding Easter is synonymous with backyard crawfish boils. This feast requires only a large pot and a heater, along with water, vegetables, seasoning, and crustaceans. Typically, crawfish are placed in large strainers, hosed down, and washed before being placed in a pot with vegetables and fruits such as lemons, garlic, onions, celery, and potatoes, all chopped in half. Frozen corn is then added to the pot to cool the boil.
Depending on individual preferences, sausages and mushrooms may also be added to the pot. It is claimed that the key to a superb crawfish boil is not to boil the crustaceans, but rather to poach them in hot water, which allows them to absorb all the flavours as they finish cooking.
Gravlax is a traditional Scandinavian dish consisting of raw, salted, and dill-seasoned fish. Originally, the meal was prepared by fisherman who buried salmon rubbed with salt, honey, and dill above the high tide line and allowed it to fester.
Historically, gravlax was known for its pungent flavour and odour, but it is now cured under refrigeration. Gravlax derives its name from a mixture of two words: grav, which means buried, and lax, which means salmon, referring to the original method of manufacturing.
Oyster omelette developed in the Chinese cities of Chaozhou (Teochew) and Fujian. In Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines, it is a hallmark dish of the Hokkien Chinese diaspora. The dish is comprised of tiny oysters mixed to a potato starch and egg batter mixture.
Depending on the locale, chefs would sometimes add a splash of chilli sauce with lime juice to enhance the flavour of a dish. The Taiwanese city of Tainan is informally known as the snack city because to the fact that it serves one of the best oyster omelettes in the region, which is not surprising given that its seaside position guarantees a constant supply of fresh oysters.
Pinangat is a famous Filipino stew that is served in two primary forms. The sour version is made with fish, bilimbi, tamarind, and vinegar, whilst the version from the Bicol region is made with coconut milk, taro leaves, spicy chilli peppers, and fish (sardines, catfish, or tuna).
Taro is a prominent element in many Bicolano cuisines, which is not surprising given that taro leaves are abundant in the Bicol region. Pinangat is typically served with a variety of toppings and over rice. Cooking the recipe is as simple as combining all of the ingredients and cooking them together, which is one of the primary factors contributing to its popularity.

The Polish cuisine ryba po grecku is a typical fish dish. Fish fillets (cod, haddock, tilapia, perch, pike, etc.), carrots, celery, leeks, parsley, onions, oil, tomato paste, lemon juice or vinegar, bay leaves, paprika, salt, and pepper are typically used to prepare this dish.
The fillets are salted and peppered, fried on both sides in oil, and left aside. The grated carrots and celery are combined with the other chopped veggies before being sautéed over medium heat until tender. Near the end of the cooking process, the remaining ingredients are added and sautéed for a few minutes.
Lutefisk is a Scandinavian meal consisting of dried whitefish that has been processed with lye, resulting in a gelatinous texture and, depending on the type of whitefish, a very strong, pungent odour. Swedes and Norwegians claim the meal as their own, but lutefisk is also produced in Finland and the United States, particularly in the state of Minnesota, where Scandinavian immigrants consume it in large numbers.
After cooking, a variety of side dishes are given with the lye-treated fish. In Norway, it is often served with boiling potatoes, mashed green peas, melted butter, and chunks of fried bacon, but Swedes and Finns prefer a side of white sauce with the previously mentioned boiled potatoes and green peas.
