As we start to put the dreary winter season in the rear view mirror, the opportunity for fun, outdoor social events has started to bloom! They’re a great way to reconnect with old friends while enjoying a few morsels of food. Speaking of food, that’s one of the toughest decisions you’ll have to make before your gathering starts. Believe it or not, there are plenty of delicious seafood appetizers that will be a huge hit with your party guests! We give you some fun ideas for seafood appetizer recipes below.
Crab Cake Bites
One of the biggest problems with constructing an appropriate seafood appetizer list is that a lot of seafood is messy. You can’t have a lot of finger food if it’s making your fingers greasy! Crab cake bites solve this problem with ease. The crab meat and spices are nestled inside of a bread crumb base and baked in bite-size pieces, making them easy to eat without the mess.
Bacon Wrapped Scallops
Is it any wonder why a lot of common dinner foods have started to gain popularity when they get wrapped in bacon? It’s because the bacon makes them taste that much better! Bacon wrapped scallops are no different. You have the option of adding pineapple quinoa to add an additional kick to the recipe, but the sweetness of bacon does a lot to compliment the scallops.
Would you believe us if we told you that this was one of the healthier seafood appetizer options? Lobster bisque takes the already-tasty lobster meat and combines it with the magic of bisque to make an appetizing dip that people won’t want to take their hands off of. The best part is that it’s simple to prepare and even simpler to serve!
Sure, shrimp cocktails are a popular appetizer. But, what happens when you want to think outside the box? Party shrimp is a great way to step out of your comfort zone! Paprika, Italian seasoning, brown sugar and lemon juice go a long way to revolutionizing the flavor of your shrimp. You won’t need a dipping sauce to enjoy these!
