Seafood Salpicao

This Seafood Salpicao, a mixed seafood medley with colorful vegetables is done cooking in just less than 10 minutes. A great way to impress your family and friends over lunch or dinner effortlessly. 

Seafood Salpicao

This is the seafood version of the more popular Filipino Beef Salpicao, which is mainly stir-fried beef with brown sauce.

But this seafood Salpicao is more than that. It has the goodness of the other vegetables. Think broccoli, snow peas, and bell peppers and even has young corn and mushrooms.

The slight sweetness and the crunch from the toasted garlic also give the dish an additional texture and flavor altogether.

I used frozen mixed seafood for convenience. I was done in just 10 minutes from prep to finish as the dish itself was cooked all in 7 minutes. The residual heat will continue to cook the veggies so better to turn off the heat when they are just half-cooked.

You may also use fresh seafood, of course. Use a medley of shrimp, clams, mussels, squid and baby octopus which all cook quite quickly. If you want to take that route, you may want to check this recipe out. It is from my brother and sister-in-law’s blog, aMiablefoods. You can also find a lot of other interesting food there.

Seafood Salpicao is perfect served with steaming hot plain rice or garlic rice. This recipe should be good for 4-5 people as a main dish. Up to 8 if you plan to have another main in place.  Seafood Salpicao from frozen mixed seafood
