Happy Independence Day!

Tue 4th July 2017
4Th 1

Americans across the globe are celebrating the 4th of July which is when the Declaration of Independence was adopted in 1774. It is commonly associated with fireworks, barbecues, parades, picnics and concerts, which sounds to us like the perfect opportunity to add some seafood into the mix!

When I think about America and food, the first thing that springs to mind is the large plates of food that you get and, following very closely on its heels, is the burgers! Now, I know beef is typically what is used in a burger but what about a crunchy haddock burger? As an added bonus, it’s a healthy option compared to the usual!

BBQ squid

If you are thinking about having your American buddies round for your Independence Day barbie, try this squid recipe; it’s perfect for the summer and comes with a tangy lime and chilli dressing.  Or if you fancy really pushing the boat out, what about throwing this whole red snapper on the bbq? This will surely impress your guests!  

Tuna Burrito

Heading out on a picnic for the big day? These tuna burritos are just perfect for preparing the night before and having cold whilst you are enjoying the great outdoors. No mess and no fuss!


Fish fingers are another fab addition to your picnic; these plaice flat fingers along with a spicy tomato dip will be a tasty treat for all ages!        

However you are celebrating Independence Day, we would love to hear about it and see you pics. Tweet us at @fishisthedish.
