Food trends have a new vehicle these days — TikTok. With home cooks and celebrity chefs taking over the social media platform, experimenters everywhere are taking their skills to a whole new level. Previous trends like acai bowls and pho didn’t see the same traction as modern-day trends. While the Julington Creek Fish Camp crew favors southern staples with a twist, we’ll never turn up our nose to something delicious. From viral favorites to tried-and-true trends, here are some dishes to try this month:
Baked Feta Pasta Deserves the Craze
This is a simple dish that’s delicious enough to serve at a restaurant. All you need is a block of feta, cherry tomatoes, your favorite pasta noodles and some garlic. Sounds too simple? Trust us, it’s fabulous. You can always add your own twist on the trend with pancetta, fresh herbs or swapping out the cheese.
The Julington Creek food experts expect to see variations of this trend carry over from home kitchens to restaurant menus. Nothing wrong with that in our books!
Beat Your Fears and Try Black Noodles
Does black pasta scare you? Don’t let it — squid ink adds color to the dish and not a whole lot more. This spooky entree takes traditional pasta recipes to a whole new level. While the bold, black noodles may look pungent in flavor, the squid ink flavors are surprisingly mild.
The rise of #PhoneEatsFirst on Instagram gives way to food trends with an eye-catching aesthetic. Squid ink pasta packs that “wow” factor without sacrificing the mild flavor of traditional noodles. If you want to play around with this trend at home, simply order some squid ink or squid ink noodles on Amazon and prepare your favorite pasta dish accordingly.
Locally Sourced Seafood by Sustainable Fishermen
This is one health trend we know and love. While Julington Creek strives to offer the freshest, local seafood at the Fish Camps, this high standard isn’t internationally recognized. Hyper-local seafood sourcing focuses more on individual regions and less on the state as a whole.
When it comes to Julington Creek Fish Camp, this means cooking what we can catch right in our backyard. Thankfully, Jacksonville is home to plenty of wonderful fish and shellfish that we feature on our menus daily.
