Recipes

Rock Shrimp Dip

With their tough, hard shells, rock shrimp resemble tiny lobsters, but they aren’t that different than regular shrimp. They’re actually deepwater cousins of Gulf Brown, White, and Pink Shrimp. They have a delicate texture and lobster-like flavor that is perfect in this creamy dip. Serve this party-ready appetizer with crunchy potato chips.

Crab Puffs

What do you get when you marry a succulent, creamy crab filling with buttery, flaky puff pastry? Hands down, the simplest, most divine holiday appetizer. Pastry cups made from store-bought puff pastry, filled with a filling reminiscent of crab dip, make the perfect bite-sized finger food for parties and celebrations.

King Crab Legs with Champagne Beurre Blanc

Nothing says celebration like king crab legs, and what better time to indulge than when it’s just the two of you? Pick a special occasion — or just a Tuesday! — and make this elegant seafood dinner, served with a Champagne beurre blanc sauce.

King crab legs are fully cooked before being frozen and sold, so preparing them is simple. And look for the largest legs as they have the meatiest texture. For easy cooking, break the legs into pieces, then keep an eye on them as they steam to avoid overcooking the delicate meat.

Oyster Po' Boys

Po’ boy sandwiches weren’t originally known for being premium quality — the name is short for “poor boy.” But over time, the concept and recipes evolved, and now po’ boys are a beloved staple of New Orleans-style cuisine. They’re essentially subs or hoagies that can be filled with anything, from roast beef to fried seafood.

While fried oysters are amazing on their own, the only thing that might make them better is to stuff them into a soft sub roll with mayonnaise, hot sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles. This recipe for a classic fried oyster po' boy would work equally well with fresh shrimp.

Oysters Rockfeller Soup

This creamy seafood soup is a twist on the famous New Orleans dish, Oysters Rockefeller. Freshly-shucked oysters are pureed with fresh spinach, parsley, and aromatics, and made creamy with half-and-half. Pernod [pehr–NOH] is a French liqueur that adds a slight licorice flavor to the soup. A sprinkle of crisp bacon on top adds a nice textural contrast to the smooth soup. This would make an elegant addition to a holiday menu or dinner party.

Crab Salad Lettuce Wraps with Watermelon Relish

Starting with a lean protein sets you up for success when trying to eat healthier and smarter. And using a flavorful option, like crab, means you’re still able to pack some “oomph” into your meal without adding extra fat or sodium. Then nestle the crab in buttery-textured lettuce leaves along with fresh ingredients like juicy watermelon, crunchy cucumber, spicy jalapeño, and fragrant cilantro. All that’s needed is a simple vinaigrette flavored with lime and chili powder to take this meal to the next level.

Korean Shrimp Skewers with Honey-Gochujang Sauce

Where there are appetizers there must be something on a stick. And these Korean shrimp skewers are even more delicious than they look. This sweet and spicy sauce is so jam-packed with flavor, too, you’ll likely use it not only for this shrimp, but other grilled meats, seafood, and veggies. The biggest thing to keep in mind when making these skewers is the size of shrimp you use. Shrimp are sized according to how many make up a pound. For instance, 16/20 means there are 16–20 shrimp per pound. This size is often labeled as extra jumbo, but terminology varies depending on packaging, so be sure to look for the number. For this recipe, we opted to use 16/20 because they offer a hearty portion and take a bit longer to cook, which lowers the risk of overcooking them on the grill.

Grilled Lobster Tails with Cilantro-Mint Butter

Grilling is a great way to cook lobster. This dry-heat method intensifies lobster’s natural sweetness while adding a little smokiness. After grilling the tails, slather on the herb-lime butter for just the right amount of freshness.

Spicy Stuffed Clams

Stuffed clams are a fun, bite-sized appetizer, perfect for a crowd, and for an al fresco entertaining menu. The clam shells make a natural baking and serving vessel. Scallions, parsley and Grana Padano flavor these clams and the addition of hot pickled cherry peppers add spiciness.

Red Curry Scallops with Lemon Grass

These Red Curry Scallops with lemon grass are a flavorful, 15-minute seafood dinner for two. The heat from the red curry paste is a perfect match with the sweet scallops and the coconut cream adds a rich creaminess that helps tame the heat from the red curry and chiles. Lemon grass adds a bright, fresh note to the dish. Serve in food-safe scallop shells for an elegant finish.

Grilled Salmon Skewers with sriracha caramel

Grilled Salmon Skewers are anything but run-of-the-mill. Hearty chunks of salmon, pineapple, scallions, and spicy pickled ginger are skewered, grilled, and basted with savory caramel. Typically caramel is sweet and saved for desserts. But when you finish caramel with fish sauce and Sriracha, it becomes a multi-faceted, Asian-inspired caramel that’s perfect for salmon, since salmon can withstand bold and spicy flavors.

Greek Salmon Salad Bowls

Greek Salmon Salad Bowls are a go-to for a great weeknight recipe. With a zesty herb-and-citrus marinade, roasted salmon fillets top a Mediterranean-inspired salad for one scrumptious healthy meal — the only thing missing is the ocean view.
