Papi’ Seafood & Oyster Bar Vancouver | English Bay

Casual seafood-focused favourites with bold, delicious flavours. Papi’s Seafood and Oyster Bar replaced Raincity Grill (and formerly Beach Bay Cafe) at Denman Street.

The 2200 sqft space is refreshing, bright and airy. A good match for its playful seafood fare.

Papis Seafood Oyster Bar Vancouver Nomss.com

To start our 5 Year Anniversary lunch date, we had some fresh oysters: Kusshi (Deep Bay, Vancouver Island), Lucky Lime (New London Bay, PEI), and Raspberry Point (New London Bay, PEI). I liked the meaty and clean flavours from the East Coast!

Octopus Popcorn 17: Smokey and tender grilled octopus with red pepper and smoked paprika popcorn.

Ahi Tuna Ceviche 18: Fresh albacore tuna, cubed and marinated in citrus, corn and pickled shallots makes for a refreshing appetizer that you simply can not get enough of! I wonder if Alessandro would have laughed at (or with me) if I had licked my plate!

Burrata Salad 18: Never would I not order Burrata if it was on the menu. Fresh Burrata with heirloom tomato and basil puree.

Off The Menu: Season’s finest Chantrelle mushroom, Brussel sprouts, heirloom tomatoes with Burrata. The warmth from the mushrooms softens the Burrata making it even more desirable! You have to try this if you are a Burrata lover!

Lobster Brioche 26: Big chunks of meaty lobster with coleslaw, mayo and a housemade light and slightly puffy egg and butter toast. The only thing that could have possibly made this piece better? Fingerling limes and tobiko sprinkled on top! Pops of citrus burst would have completed it!

Off The Menu: Lobster Spaghetti instead of Clam Spaghetti because we are EXTRA! Dressed in white wine and herbs.

Remember to ask Alessandro to suggest wine pairings! And say hi to Chef Jefferson Alvarez (he will be there until the end of September!)

BEST Vietnamese Fresh Oyster Banh Mi Sandwich recipe from THE GREAT SHELLFISH COOKBOOK REVIEW Matt Dean Pettit NOMSS.COM SEAFOOD RECIPE BLOG

THE GREAT SHELLFISH COOKBOOK BY MATT DEAN PETTIT REVIEW

  • Author: Matt Dean Pettit
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 25 mins
  • Yield: 2 person 1x
  • Category: Seafood
  • Cuisine: Vietnamese

Description

Who doesn’t love a good banh mi sandwich? Living in a multicultural city like Toronto, where we have a great Vietnamese community, I’ve had my fair share of these sandwiches. Simply put, it’s a Vietnamese submarine sandwich loaded with at on of flavor and great spices. Oysters aren’t a traditional ingredient here, but I think they work perfectly.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 oysters (see note)
  • 4 Tbsp (60 ml) full-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) Sriracha hot sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 baguettes
  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) thinly sliced English cucumber (skin on)
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) carrots, cut into matchstick pieces then measured
  • 1 red Thai chili, thinly sliced
  • Finely chopped cilantro, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Using a brush or a clean steel wool pad, scrub the grit from each of the oyster shells and rinse them under cold, running water. Grasp an oyster in one hand, cup-side down, insert an oyster knife into the opening, and run it from top to bottom of the hinge, which should open it. If the hinge doesnt open, try giving the knife a small twist in the center of the hinge. Using your fingers, remove the top shell of each oyster. Slip the knife under the oyster meat to loosen the lower adductors, allowing you to remove the meat and discard the liquor. Gently clean off any dark parts around the oyster meat. Set the oyster meat aside on a plate, uncovered, in the refrigerator. Discard the shells.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise and Sriracha hot sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside at room temperature.
  3. Slice each baguette into two pieces, and then slice those pieces in half horizontally, to make small submarine sandwiches.
  4. Lay out two bread bottoms and top each one with cucumber slices, carrots, and slices of chili. Top with the raw oyster meat, a drizzle of Sriracha mayo, and garnish of cilantro. Cover with the bread tops. Repeat for the second sandwich.

Notes

When consuming raw seafood, make sure you’re buying it from a reputable source. With raw oysters in particular, they should smell fresh and like the sea. If they smell off, toss ’em.

recipe from THE GREAT SHELLFISH COOKBOOK REVIEW Matt Dean Pettit NOMSS.COM SEAFOOD RECIPE BLOG

Matty’s Spanish Vacay Paella

  • Author: Matt Dean Pettit
  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 40 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 2-4 people 1x
  • Category: Seafood
  • Cuisine: Seafood

Description

I fell in love with paella when I first traveled to Spain. Paella originates from the beautiful city of Valencia, on the southeastern coast. Almost every restaurant there has their own individual family recipe for paella. You’ll find seafood, chicken, duck, rabbit, snail, and vegetable paella. The key to cooking a great paella (which is kind of like risotto) is to not overcook the rice. Keep an eye on it as you cook, and be sure to stir. And enjoy! Or, as the Spanish say, buen provecho!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (250 mL) Spanish or Arborio rice
  • 1 lb (450 g) live mussels
  • 1/2 lb (225 g) shrimp, spot prawns, or tiger shrimp, raw with shells on (see note)
  • 1 Tbsp (30 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, finely diced 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) green beans, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces then measured
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chopped Roma tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) capers
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) dried saffron
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chili flakes (or chili powder)
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) dry white wine
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) warm water 2 raw or frozen and thawed lobster tails, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) sweet paprika for garnish

Instructions

  1. Place the Spanish rice in a bowl of cold water to soak for approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Clean the mussels under cold, running water. Remove any hair connected to the mussels and discard any mussels that are completely or even slightly open. Set aside.
  3. Run your choice of shrimp, prawns, or tiger shrimp under cold, running water to clean them. Set aside in the fridge. You’ll be cooking these with the shells on, as thats where the flavor is.
  4. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until soft and translucent. Add the green beans and tomatoes and stir well to combine. Add the capers, saffron, cinnamon, and chili flakes. Stir again to combine and coat the vegetables. Let them cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, drain the rice. Add the rice and wine to the vegetables and bring to a boil. Add the stock and water as well. Using a wooden spoon, stir constantly as it returns to a boil to ensure that the rice is fully covered in sauce. Once the mixture is boiling, turn down the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered and stirring frequently, for 25 to 35 minutes, or until the rice is al dente.
  6. Add the shrimp, mussels, and lobster to the skillet, cover, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the seafood is cooked and opaque, and most of the mussels are open. Discard any mussels that do not open.
  7. Sprinkle the mixture with sweet paprika while its still in the skillet.
  8. Serve immediately in bowls.

Notes

If you’d like to use tiger shrimp in this recipe, make sure to ask your fishmonger where they were sourced. Look for Ocean Wise or MSC-certified tiger shrimp.

How It Works

The feeling choosing my seafood at the tank is sort of like first love. My heart beats fast and I don’t know if I’m making the right decision. I mean there are just so many to choose from! And frankly, I want them all. There is a wide range of ordinary seafood to exquisite varieties. However, it is always the fresh!

  1. Choose your seafoods
  2. Pay by the weight plus cooking charge per person.
  3. Tell them how you would like to them cooked
    • steamed
    • blanched
    • deep fried
    • sauteed
  4. Wait at your table and the food will be brought to you

There are so many tanks and exhibits it feels like a private aquarium.

The decor of the restaurant is only average despite its attempt at grandeur. There is a lot of gold, emperor yellow and a lot of low lit. Not particularly catered for photos. Chuen Kee also has their prize processions of shark fin on display.

Mantis Shrimp: Deep fried with salt and pepper and some paprika. This was one of the best we’ve tasted. The meat is sweet, tender yet solid with a good bounce. The lower legs are crispy enough to eat. And if you watch this video, you’ll understand how their meat is so muscular.

 

Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant Hong Kong Sai Kung MICHELIN Guide 2016 Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

Scallops: a dozen large size scallops steamed with garlic, scallions and vermicelli noodles. Deliciously sweet and perfectly balanced with a light but savory sauce.

Clams: A light wine based broth with clams to accentuate the freshness of the juicy clams.

 

Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant Hong Kong Sai Kung MICHELIN Guide 2016 Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

Grouper Fish: None other way to enjoy the freshness of grouper than to steam it. The meat is ever so tender yet firm with a flakey flesh. Always a treat and you bet this be on the table of any Chinese festivities, wedding or birthday banquet.

 

Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant Hong Kong Sai Kung MICHELIN Guide 2016 Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

Razor Clams: Razor clams can become rubbery in texture if it is over cooked. It should take only 4-5 minutes at most and will require a skillful chef to monitor its opacity. Add the black bean sauce, garlic, chilies and touch of hoisin sauce for sweetness. These are heavenly.

 

Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant Hong Kong Sai Kung MICHELIN Guide 2016 Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

Kai Lan Chinese Broccoli: Add a side of vegetables to balance the meal out. I never say no to fresh veggies! Sautéed with garlic.

Chicken: Chicken meat always tastes more like chicken in Asia for whatever reason. The meat is tender, juicy and moist. The skin not so fatty nor greasy. Chinese poached chicken with ginger scallion oil. The scallion oil makes a great friend with a bowl of rice jasmine rice!
