Josh Lawson, currently working as the Kitchen Supervisor Operations at Air Culinaire, hails from Seattle. He takes great pleasure in creating dishes that highlight seafood as a chef. According to Lawson, his fondness for seafood can be traced back to his childhood in Seattle, where fresh fish is a significant part of the local cuisine.
In the featured TikTok video, the culinary creation presented highlights a meticulously executed pan-seared red snapper, paired with expertly roasted fingerling potatoes, and elegantly finished with a topping of fresh shrimp mango salsa, on a citrus-infused orange Beurre Blanc sauce. The dish is a nod to the distinctive flavors of Florida that inspired its conception, discovered by the talented chef Josh during his time spent Living in the sunshine state.
Below, you can find a video of the dish being prepared.
