Turn up the flavor at your kitchen table with these quick, easy shellfish ideas!
Roasted Garlic Clam Dip. Like a cool version of clam chowder, Clam Dip brings together the flavors of cream cheese, lemon juice, and roasted garlic for a totally delicious treat.
Shellfish Pasta Toss. Mix shrimp, mince clams, or lump crab meat with a bit of lemon juice and olive oil. Toss with a can of fire roasted tomatoes, fresh basil, and parmesan cheese for a quick, easy meal.
Shrimp Quesadillas. Add grilled shrimp to your quesadillas for a quick, tasty weeknight meal.
Crab Bisque. If you've already got a favorite recipe for clam chowder, try replacing the minced clams for lump crab meat! It's a simple, delicious way to change your recipe up a bit.
Lobster Rolls. One of the least expensive ways to add shellfish to your menu is by purchasing a pack of imitation lobster or crab. Heat a cup or so of imitation lobster in the microwave just until warmed. Squeeze fresh lemon juice on top, then serve in a soft roll with mayonnaise. How easy was that?!
When serving shellfish at a dinner party or potluck, always be sure to ask about shellfish allergies. It's easy to hide shellfish inside a soup or dip and feed the potentially dangerous allergen to an unsuspecting guest. Just something to consider as you plan and prepare these delicious recipes!
