Cooking Seafood in a wood-fired oven

I love to use my backyard oven for all types of dishes and Cooking Seafood in a wood-fired oven is one of my favorites. Of course making great wood-fired pizza is my main focus and it keeps the family happy! But as you know the oven can cook incredible dishes. I love the char  that the oven puts on meats and vegetables. I love the fresh bread that I cook as well. The fast cooking and high temperatures create amazing flavors that only a wood fire oven can produce.

One of my favorite dishes to cook also is fresh fish. I like to create a lot of signature dishes that really explode with flavor. Even simple dishes and simple recipes are exceptional when cooked at such high temperatures.

Example Shrimp orgenata Or Clams

    • Cooking Seafood in a wood-fired oven
      Seafood made simple


    • Serves 4
    • Ingredients:
    • 4 portions – 16 ea Shrimp (u-15 large shrimp ) peeled, deveined with the tail left on
    • 1 cup bread crumbs plain or Panko
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano ¼ cup Grated parmesan cheese
    • 2 tablespoons sliced garlic
    • 1 cup white wine “good tasting” Be sure to have a glass for yourself!
    • ½ cup butter “love the Butter salted or sweet”
    •  3oz  olive oil
    • 4 plum tomatoes (canned) crushed  optional
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    •  Prepare the bread crumbs: Combine cheese, bread crumbs, olive oil  and oregano in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper. They should be moist so they don’t burn.
    •  Crust the shrimp: Press 1 tablespoon bread crumb mixture into each shrimp on the side which has been cut to remove the vein. You should have enough bread crumb mixture to crust 16 shrimp. Distribute it evenly.  Prepare the dish: Pre-heat oven and a large heavy skillet to 600 F. Add olive oil to hot skillet and allow oil to heat don’t burn the oil ! Arrange shrimp in the skillet. Add wine and butter to the top of bread crumbs so they don’t burn,  along with th sliced garlic I like to put the tomatoes to the side so they add flavor to the juices . Season with salt and pepper. Return pan to the oven and cook until shrimp are done (4-5 minutes more). During the cooking time, the wine, butter, and juices from the tomato will reduce and come together like a sauce. When done plate and cover with the juices in the skillet. Enjoy easy and fantastic
    • This style of cooking is simple you can do fillet of sole and  baked clams the same  way! So when it comes to cooking Seafood its easy and the family will love it!

  • 5 star review  Incredible ovens! My family has always been searching for a great pizza oven for our backyards and all I can say is WOW! Let me start off by telling you that all of my family owns pizza shops and has for the last 35 years, so novices we are not. We were very excited to see what this little backyard oven could do. My god! Did a better pizza just come out of this oven then at my shop? Are you kidding me!!!!!!! My brother-in-law and I were floored! The crust developed perfectly and the toppings melted right into the sauce. We cooked up some red, green, and yellow bell peppers ahead of time in a cast iron pan in the oven before throwing them on the pie. Did I mention I’m not really a fan of peppers? But something magical happened in this oven between the Smokey wood and the heat turbulence in the dome of the oven I’m guessing. Or maybe it’s some magic at this point, I just can’t be sure. Anyways, now that I love peppers on my pizza I can stand here and say, this oven has got it all. Simplicity for the novice, and the seriousness of a modern pizza chef. I wish I would have gotten one sooner from you guys. Donald LeMay Stone Fired Piizza

  • 5 star review  If you were ever interested in making the best pizza you ever had in your own yard look no further. Great quality oven at a reasonable price and the customer service is second to none. Even though it's not actually in the house I still consider it my very favorite kitchen tool. My neighbors love me! Stop thinking about it and buy one!!
