Oostduinkerke, Belgium is a little dot on the North Sea Coast that has stolen my heart. Winter or Summer, I love spending time there: long walks on the beach and cooking some great fresh seafood. The fish mines in Nieuwpoort are just a little drive away or if like me, you prefer something closer, pop in Mare Nostrum fish shop at Sint-Idesbald: Fish for foodies! They have fresh seafood and homemade meals-to-go. I picked up some shrimp, razor clams, cod and langoustine. I cooked up a lovely seafood platter with langoustine, shrimp and razor clams. And some flavorful fishcakes, yummy!
The traditional way of shrimping with horses is still going strong, recognized as an UNESCO cultural heritage; you can check their shrimping schedule and pick up some fresh shrimp in Koksijde.
