Think Beyond the Turkey and Serve Seafood this Thanksgiving!
It’s hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Thanksgiving is always such a relaxing day filled with family, football, and best of all: FOOD! Many Americans have fond memories of savory stuffing, crunchy and creamy green bean casseroles, and a big, juicy turkey. We’re all for the good old standards, but of course, we here at Nick’s Lobster House also love working a little fresh seafood into the mix.
This Thanksgiving, why not treat yourself and your family or friends to a succulent seafood feast? Check out some of our favorite ways to incorporate fresh seafood into your Thanksgiving meal:
Everyone’s mouth waters at the sight of a shrimp cocktail platter or some oysters on the half shell. And nothing beats a warm crab dip appetizer made with fresh lump crab meat.
A light seafood salad can be a wonderful kickoff to your Thanksgiving meal, or for those who prefer a heartier starter, ladle out steaming crocks of rich clam chowder. For a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, serve up some crab cakes or seared scallops!
Have you ever tried oyster stuffing? It’s a delectable alternative to the boxed stuff, and it compliments turkey so well! Baked stuffed clams can be a tasty alternative, too. Lobster mac and cheese is always a winning side dish, or maybe some stir-fried green beans with shrimp instead of the usual green bean casserole. And a simple platter of crab legs with garlic butter and lemons to squeeze can make a beautiful side dish on its own!
Serve stuffed lobster for a stunning and delicious alternative to a big, dry bird for your main dish. Whole baked fish also makes a tasty and attractive main course. For the adventurous host, paella is a tasty option that will feed a crowd. Or why not go all out and host a clambake for a fun and EASY meal that everyone will love!
