Provencal Seafood Dinner Menu for the Holidays

Seafood Dinner Menu for the Holidays #TastesofProvence @CocoaandLavender

Borrowing inspiration from the proximity of the Mediterranean this festive menu (recipe links are below each course) is seafood focused.

Share some rosé with your guests as you sample the Cocoa & Lavender zucchini fritters. Then blow their minds and taste buds with the recipe by Michelin star chef Gérald Passedat who turned Bouillabaisse – originally a fisherman’s meal made with the unsold fish parts – into a beautiful variation. The main course highlight is an easy recipe for swordfish by Michel’s, and following salad who could resist the Cocoa & Lavender lemon tart.

Zucchini and Shrimp Fritters, Saffron Mayonnaise

Starter Course

Bouillabaisse Terrine

Main Course

Swordfish with Tomato Caper Butter Sauce

David Scott Allen is the author, photographer, and cook behind Cocoa & Lavender, a weekly food blog based in Tucson, Arizona. Passionate about travel, he especially enjoys eating traditional foods and learning local customs, whether in the United States or around the globe.

David's first trip to France took place when he was 14, and he returned as often as possible thereafter. However, it wasn't until his 50th birthday that he finally made it south to Provence. The beauty, history, charm, warmth, cuisine, and - of course - the rosé wines captured his heart. He shares his Provençal recipes here on Perfectly Provence, and his food and wine pairings monthly on the Provence WineZine.

David is a firm believer that sharing a meal with friends around the table is one of life's greatest pleasures. And if it happens to be in Provence, all the better!
