[Recreation – Out & About] All-You-Can-Eat Seafood Night at Nashdale Hall, NSW

As some Orange residents may agree, fresh seafood, and I meant you can still taste the sea kind of fresh, is hard to come by in Orange for being inland and all. So when my Nashdale connection, Mr C, asked me if I would like to go to an all-you-can-eat seafood dinner, and that the organisers actually hired a refridgerated truck to pick up thousand dollars worth of seafood from Sydney market on the same day, it’s difficult to let this opportunity to slip through my fingers. Plus, it’s not often I get to experience a community organised event.

{So, that’s the secret behind cooking whole salmon ….by massaging them tenderly. Lucky Nashdale women!  Alright, alright, I was just kidding. They were just checking if the salmon was cooked by detecting the temperature and the firmness of the flesh.  Thanks to Arthur, Bill and Graeme for cooking the salmon perfectly. It’s not easy to cook so many whole salmon in one night! }

{Bits of Nashdale Hall}

{My first round – sword fish fillet, some salmon and salad made by the organising committee members.}

{Grilled salmon, prawns, marinated octopus and fresh oysters – I was in seafood paradise!}

{I love buffet-style dining. Considering the great turnout, it was really organised and there’s more than enough food for everyone.}

{My first encounter with Balmain Bug. Personally the flesh reminds me of lobster but with a more refined texture. I think I still need to get over its aesthetic. Superficial much?}

{Next time, I need to bring a mortar to break the claw. Before this, I forgot how sweet and lovely fresh crab meat is.}

At the end of the dinner I was totally stuffed…same as everyone else. There were boxes of seafood reserved for raffle tickets after the dinner and …if you wish to burn some of the calories you’ve just consumed, there’s a dance floor where you and your mates can dance to the 80s music.

The next seafood dinner will be held in early November and on a Friday night. The ticket for this dinner costs $55  and you need to make ticket reservation before you go (I didn’t notice the availability of front door ticket sale on the night). The proceeds of the dinner will go towards the maintenance of the Nashdale Hall and funding the local schools and charitable organisations. Should you require the date on the next seafood dinner and  ticket reservation, please contact Arthur Treweek on  63 65 3145 or 0427 65 3389.

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank the Nashdale community for organising such an enjoyable and scrumptious dinner! I will see you next time! :D

Note – This is not a sponsored post and I paid for my own ticket.
