Christmas seafood recipes

Seafood has long been the centrepiece of the quintessential Australian Christmas. What would a festive spread be without king prawns, freshly shucked oysters or a roast barramundi?

When it comes to Christmas entertaining, perhaps you're the type of host that likes to lay the snacks out on the table and let your guests help themselves – oysters on ice with zingy dressings, say, alongside lobster rolls, seafood skewers and prawn cocktails. Or maybe you thrive in a sit-down setting, where platters of striking salads and oven-baked whole fish get passed around with gusto. Whatever your pleasure, you'll win Christmas with these recipes that keep the ocean's finest front and centre.
