Europeans have long prized branzino, known as Mediterranean seabass, for its white, flaky flesh. Delicious and light, it is ubiquitous throughout the Mediterranean and growing in popularity in America.
Serve on a salad of baby greens and cherry tomatoes with capers and one anchovy filet. Substitute branzino fillets for any recipe calling for tuna, like panini, salads, and crostini. Pop a tin in your tote with crackers to take on a boat or a picnic.
One of the most common uses for clam juice is as a cooking liquid for seafood dishes. Some chefs also use it as a substitute for fish stock, which can get expensive. A dash of juice from a clam may also be added to foods for a hint of a briny flavor without an overwhelming sense of seafood. Some savory cocktails also call for it. One popular clam juice product combines it with tomato juice for use as a mixer in drinks.
