3…2…1…HAPPY NEW YEAR! Get ready to pop the champagne, because 2019 is almost here! While we can’t believe another year has passed, we’re excited to celebrate with friends and family tomorrow night. And, there’s really no better occasion than New Year’s Eve to have a party, right? We think not!
To help you have the best New Year’s Eve yet, we’ve rounded up some of our standout seafood small bites, finger foods and appetizers. So, grab your sparkling wine, champagne or cider and prepare a few festive favorites from our list!
Two great dishes we included are Pizzazzerie’s adorable Shrimp & Grits Cups (a truly appetizing bite of southern comfort) and Martha Stewart’s Mini Lobster Rolls (a nod to Cape Cod’s seaside fare). Either appetizer will make your New Year’s guests feel they’ve been transported to a seafood paradise. Now, if you’re the one attending a party, rather than throwing it, don’t show up empty-handed! Instead, whip up one of our super shareable and easy-to-transport Crab Dip recipes.
No matter how you ring in the new year, we hope you and those you love enjoy the festivities (and eat some delicious seafood)!
There’s a reason crab dip is an entertaining mainstay. For this big celebration, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite crab dip recipes for you to try.
