What happens when a group of people come together to celebrate delicious seafood and fresh cookin? Nothing but the best of times!
What a hoot!
Foodie friends, meet Joyce and John of Afishionados! That’s me in the middle 🙂 and this post is about a collaboration that we put together, Seafood 101 with Happy Belly Foodie’s complementary side dishes. We had a great time! We met new friends, shared our cooking secrets and ate some super delicious food! Yummy!
Here’s two of Johns fish dishes along with his Mango Crab Dip and my sauteed collard greens.
Ain’t that a great lookin group of people?
Thank you SO much for coming out to our class Nicole, Megan, Jared, Kelly, Bill and Tom!
John, owner and seafood expert taught us all about oysters, clams, muscles and fish. He talked about knowing how to tell when your seafood is fresh and showed us how to cook up some fantastic dishes.
John showed us how to shuck an oyster, bake muscles and steam clams.
This is Oysters Rockafeller. Yummy lookin, no? It was fabulous! I can’t wait to make them for myself!
I cooked and served several appetizers, side dishes and dessert bites to go along with John’s seafood and explained how to make all of them, too. And Joyce assisted both of us. (Love you Joycey! <3) What a team!
This here is John’s pan seared Orange Roughy and my sauteed asparagus.
What a great bunch!
Everyone had a fantastic time with us while learning how to make lots of new dishes!
Say CHEESE Kelly and Bill!
Tom really enjoyed himself!
Nobody left hungry, that’s for sure!!
We had a blast and I can’t wait for the next class! We’ll be meeting again on Saturday, June 6th at 7pm.

this was seriously so much fun!! And I’m pretty sure Megan got all her bridal shower food ideas from your appetizers! Being pregnant and wanting to eat/snack all the time, I can’t tell you how excited I am to have easy healthy snacks to make! I’m down for the occasional complex dinner but it’s SO awesome to have something healthy quick and easy!
