Admittedly, all of us cooks have come across a list of taboo food combinations in our experience cooking. Seafood and cheese might be one of those for some of you. Beyond the cream cheese and crab combination at your favorite Rangoon establishment, many people still uphold the notion that cheese and seafood do not belong together.
However, if you do a little exploring in different food cultures, you are sure to discover amazing dishes that pair seafood and cheese. Mussels and blue cheese in France, Machas A la Parmesana in Chile are just a few of the dishes that represent a fusion of flavors made from combining seafood and cheese.
The creativity and technique comes in to finding the right compliment for fish and seafood which is often delicate and mild in flavor. Choosing a cheese that highlights rather than overpowers is essential to well-balanced dishes. While not the most intuitive pairing to create, if it’s done correctly, cheese and seafood can be a revelatory experience.
