Oysters, lobster, crab, and clams really only require the bare minimum to be delectable. Follow these instructions to make the most of your shellfish.
A very tasty snack that is quick and easy to make. This can be used as a sandwich. Enjoy!
Years of crab-dip experience from a native Marylander and crab connoisseur come together to make healthy and truly amazing crab dip!
Don't worry--these don't have eccentric California ingredients! In fact, they are very traditional. The only exception is the use of sourdough bread crumbs, which lend a fuller, tangier flavor than crackers or plain crumbs. Combine the sourdough bread crumbs with a perfect blend of spices and vegetables and lots of crab, and you have a winning combination. Make smaller cakes for appetizers, or larger ones -- like these -- for main dishes. Enjoy!
My brother Jake and I ate this dish almost everyday on a surfing trip to Costa Rica. This is my best approximation of it. Very hearty, tasty meal.
A great pasta salad with Imitation crab meat, ham and sunflower seeds.
This is a wonderful quick dish that I've made with shrimp on the grill. Serve with white wine.
My mother prepared this dish (along with another simple appetizer consisting of chilled cocktail shrimp stuck with festive toothpicks along side a dish of cocktail sauce) every Christmas as far back as I can remember. It is a creamy, savory blend of easy-to-find ingredients that showcases the rich flavor of the clams. Stay with the mentioned brands and you'll never be disappointed. Serve with Ruffles(R) Original potato chips.
A play on the New England classic, made with imitation crab and a bunch of kick! You can substitute broken shrimp in this recipe as well! Serve with cold crunchy dill pickles!
In this easy recipe, you make your own pasta dough and stuff the tortellini yourself with prawns, crab, and marscapone cheese. Then you make a simple creamy Parmesan sauce and take credit for a dish that tastes gourmet!
This is one of the easiest and most popular dishes that I've ever made. Simply throw the ingredients together and let marinade overnight in the fridge. And to top it off, it's a great looking dish with all the colors.
Whoever said that cheese and seafood don't go together is crazy! This quiche is great for breakfast, lunch, or brunch... or for a snack during a good movie.
I emulated this rendition of Shrimp a la Diablo after eating a similar dish at San Carlos Bay restaurant in Guadalupe, AZ.
A simple shrimp and broccoli soup using few ingredients yet yielding lots of flavor.
A nice cream base soup that will awaken your taste bubs. It has a light spicy favor that you taste that lets you know that you are alive.
I threw these together for my daughter using stuff I had laying around in the fridge and was surprised at how good they turned out.
A friend of mine said he had the "best soup ever" from his favorite local restaurant and said I couldn't make anything close to it. We had a contest to see who could do it and I won! Spicy, yet comforting and easy!
A meaty salad you make on the grill. Hey, is a running back just for running? No, he can catch passes too. Likewise, the grill isn't made for burgers and brats alone.
A quick-cooking take on the New Orleans favorite, jambalaya.
Developed at a New Orleans restaurant in 1899 during a snail shortage, the richness of the sauce caused the chef to name these after John Rockefeller, then the richest American. Now we'd call them "Oysters Gates," which doesn't really have the same ring.
A quick and easy pasta for the clam lover. Garnish with fresh parsley and Parmesan cheese.
