Butter Garlic Mixed Seafood. This dish is a feast of mixed seafood. It is made up of 1 kilo of each medium sized crabs, mussels, small clams, big clams and a mixed of small and medium sized shrimps. Cooking method is similar to a Dampa-Paluto style. But for my take of the Butter Garlic Mixed Seafood is that, it is made up of mixed seafood in generous quantity.
Cooking my Butter Garlic Mixed Seafood is moderately easy for the reason that the seafood where steamed cooked first prior to stir-frying with butter and garlic.
To make my Butter Garlic Mixed Seafood truly Pinoy I used an equal parts of butter and star margarine. The star margarine adds the flavour we Pinoy just love, the margarine also add a yellowish tint to the mixed seafood.
Here is the recipe of my Butter Garlic Mixed Seafood.
