Our reputation for excellence in seafood catering did not happen by random chance. We have invested in hiring the best talent to prepare all of our products, sparing nothing to ensure you always get the very best. When it comes to seafood party platters, Sydney customers are spoiled for choice with Nicholas Online.
Every seafood tray we assemble is made with exacting attention to detail, as you would expect from chefs of the calibre we have brought together. The important thing when considering a seafood plate is that all the ingredients must be fresh, perfectly prepared, and then stored at precisely the right temperature before serving.
Our insistence on selecting only the best means we can have full confidence in our team to prepare and assemble the perfect cold seafood platter, meeting the needs for any seafood party. Sydney has the best seafood and we have the best of the best.
Our seafood range is always made with the finest selection of ingredients. Listed below are just some of the items we select:
Balmain Bugs: A species of slipper lobster found only in our part of the world. Although it is similar to a lobster, it is also different because it has no large claws, and is much smaller and flatter than a typical lobster.
Lobster:Considered a delicacy, lobster is similar to crayfish, except that it is usually larger and is found only in the sea. Lobster has a strong flavour and really juicy meat.
Prawns: In Australia, we distinguish between prawns and shrimp, while some other countries do not. Prawns are larger than shrimp, and used differently. Their mild flavour makes them very versatile and able to be used in almost any kind of cuisine. They are also one of the most abundant marine animals, because the one thing they're really good at is making baby prawns. Shrimp, which are really just small prawns, have a more intense flavour, so they're often used as ingredients in making Asian sauces and curry pastes. We generally tend to select tiger prawns, because of their large size, good flavour profile, and nice visual appearance.
Oysters: We select from two varieties of oysters, Sydney rock oysters and Pacific oysters. Apart from being delicious and an amazing visual treat, oysters are also a good source of nutrition. They contain zinc, iron, calcium, and selenium. This combination of minerals, and especially zinc, play an important role in human hormone synthesis, which is one reason why many people believe them to have aphrodisiac properties.
Smoked Salmon: We choose Tasmanian salmon, sourced directly from the supplier. This is one of only two seafood items we stock which is not sourced locally from the Sydney Fish Market.
Kingfish: We serve this in a cerviche style. It is sliced like sashimi and then marinated in a sauce made from ginger, citrus, garlic, and eschallots.
Scampi: A tiny species of lobster that looks more like a prawn. We use a larger than average variety of scampi, so they make a really generous portion. They look great on the plate, and are a really popular choice.
Ocean Trout: A delicate smoked ocean trout with delicious flavour and texture. Prepared in a signature style by our most talented chef, it is a fantastic addition to any party table.
Tuna: We choose local yellowfin tuna and serve it as a carpaccio. We slice it super thin and, just before serving, you should pour over the sauce we provide to accompany it. This Japanese citrus dressing really brings out the best in the tuna.
Caviar: We use Yasa Caviar "Elite", the same caviar served to first class passengers by Qantas. This exceptional caviar is sourced from Siberia and packaged in the UAE, flown in weekly direct from the supplier.
Not every host can afford to provide a seafood platter, so when you do, you are really demonstrating to your guests that you hold them in high esteem. When creating the right impression is important, the right choice is always to include a cold seafood platter. Sydney is fortunate to have an environment suited to both formal and casual dining arrangements, and these seafood platters will blend in while helping you stand out.
The seafood plate of a Sydney party is not only a tradition but something guests will truly appreciate. That inclusion makes a big difference, the seafood tray. Sydney people love seafood, and you really can't go wrong by providing it as an option.
While it's true that seafood is highly desirable, not everyone can eat it. To make sure nobody is left out, you should consider adding some of our alternative non-seafood selections to your party table. There is a top range of cold-cuts, cheeses, sandwiches, and fruit platters to choose from.
These are great accompaniments to our seafood, and are a great alternative for people who would rather have something other than seafood. Providing a choice shows consideration for your guests and ensures nobody feels left out or forgotten about.
