I used to have no tolerance to spicy food. I would not even touch it. But as I got older, I got more adventurous. I slowly worked my way up the spice ladder. Don’t got me wrong, I am still afraid of super spicy food, but I am willing to try it now.
I also love seafood. I had this dish at a Japanese Sushi place. They called it “Baked Fish Appetizer”. It tasted sooooo good (and spicy) that I order it all the time.
Of course I had to make it myself. And since it is Lent and I am not allowed to eat meat on Fridays, this dish was perfect.
Here is my version of Seafood Dynamite.
2 cups assorted seafood (I used scallops, shrimps, squid and cod)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp hot sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp fish roe (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
green onions, sliced, for garnish
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, hot sauce, sesame oil, fish roe , salt and pepper. Add in the mixed seafood.
Transfer to a baking dish. Bake for 10-15 minutes (or until the top is golden brown).
Remove from the oven, garnish with green onions and nori and serve hot.
