seafood amateur - help me cook it simply

ariana | Feb 1, 2006 08:59 PM

I've always been not-so-great at cooking seafood but ready to give it another try since I love shrimp and fish filets.

Problem #1 is that I have an electric stove for the 1st time in my life, which is not the most conducive to cooking seafood. I usually just turn it up to high and try to cook fast. Any tips? I also have the George Foreman. Is this preferable to the electric stove?

My shrimp always tastes too moist even though I strain it in the colander after thawing. I feel like the spices/oil never coat it enough. Should I be patting it dry with a paper towel or something before I put it in the oil or marinade?

Would you recommend buying frozen fish (i.e. like at Trader Joes) or just thawed stuff at the grocer? It would be much more convenient to buy alot of the frozen and just thaw it as needed. Isn't most of the stuff at the grocer previously frozen anyway?

Any other tips for simple seafood cooking is appreciated. Thanks much in advance.
