There are many reasons to include more seafood in your diet: it is high in protein and good fats, it features great variety, and it is all delicious. At Piccolo Trattoria, we offer several Italian seafood entrees to satisfy your craving for fare from the sea with traditional Italian style. Below are some of the featured entrees that will certainly please your palate.
Stuffed Shrimp: Combine two favorite types of shellfish by enjoying flavorful jumbo shrimp stuffed with sweet crab. The shrimp are cooked to perfection and served in a delicate white wine garlic sauce with sautéed spinach. No flavor in the dish overpowers another, so each bite is a perfect symphony of rich shellfish.
Prince Edward Isle Mussles: Served in the shell with a simple pan sauce of tomatoes, basil, garlic and olive oil, these mussels are classic Italian fare. The dish is completed with pasta, and it is a showcase of fresh flavors. The sweet basil is balanced by the acidic tomatoes that burst with juice.
Salmone Alla Piccolo: If you are in the mood for a fish dish, try this savory salmon. The fish is grilled and served alongside creamy sautéed cannellini beans and spinach. A port wine reduction pulls all the elements of the dish together.
Tilapia Mare Chiaro: Any indecisive diner will be pleased with this elaborate fish creation. It begins with sautéed tilapia, baby shrimp, and lump crab tossed in garlic white wine cream sauce. Tender grape tomatoes are mixed in and the whole dish is served over capellini.
