While some say red meat-based dishes are a staple of Italian dishes, there is a whole world to be discovered with Italian seafood. Between ocean-fresh fish, unforgettable lobster, and all the Italian ingredients that make up the best traditional dishes, there’s something for everyone. Our favorite seafood entrees feel like a trip around Italy’s coast, so let’s talk about dishes you need to try.
Lobster Fra Diavolo
Lobster is a delicious focus for any dish, and in this dish, it’s paired with angel hair pasta and a San Marzano tomato sauce. With a hearty sauce and the light, always expertly cooked lobster, the flavors match perfectly for an elegant yet comforting entree.
Native to southern Europe and North Africa, branzino is an ocean-going fish. We serve this season favorite with cured lemon, garlic, Vidalia onions, rosemary, and roasted potatoes.
Served with yuka gnocchi and accented by cherry tomatoes and a white wine reduction sauce, sea bass is an Italian staple. With a prime catching season close to 6 months, it’s often available, and always a great choice!
Faroe Island Salmon
Our Faroe Island Salmon is lightly pan-seared with our Sicilian sweet and sour glaze to bring out the natural bright flavors of the salmon. Add mashed potatoes to the side, and you have a heart-healthy Italian dinner.
Oregenata is a way of serving seafood coated in light breadcrumbs, olive oil, oregano, and butter. Combining grilled shrimp, scallops, calamari, and swordfish over arugula with a lemon garlic sauce, each and every seafood favorite is in this dish. It’s a wonderful way to get a little bit of everything!
Served with artichokes, wild mushrooms, and garlic mashed potatoes, roasted halibut rounds out our favorites list. Between the savory side flavors and roasted, full-bodied flavor of the halibut, you can’t go wrong with this Italian classic.
With a waterfront view and all of these delicious seafood options on the menu, we hope to see you for lunch, dinner, and every Italian seafood craving you might have! Make a reservation at Strega Waterfront today!
