With school just around the corner, families are busy soaking up the remainder of summer and looking for easy-to-prep seafood dishes. We’ve got you covered with nine savory seafood meals that are big on flavor but won’t cut into your summer fun.
Start your day off with hearty and healthy dishes that will energize the whole family for a day at the pool, beach, summer camp or – for those days that will be here before you know it – school. This savory smoked salmon breakfast bowl is packed with healthy goodness—protein, red potatoes, brown rice and veggies—yum! And, mini crabmeat-filled casseroles are not only a breeze to throw together, they pop with flavor and colorful veggies. These meals are so delicious and simple, they may just become breakfast staples for the remaining summer mornings, as well as busy school mornings.
When you need a quick afternoon pick-me-up or pre-dinner snack, mini tuna melts are a fan favorite. This recipe is so versatile and you can get creative by using some of the deliciously flavored tuna cans and pouches that are on the market (Lemon Pepper, Buffalo, Thai Chili)! These scrumptious little tuna sammies are loaded with muscle-building protein and heart-healthy omega-3s.
For lunch, it’s hard to beat a refreshing salad—especially one that’s made with buttery salmon and crunchy cucumbers. It’s the perfect, light meal on a warm summer’s day. Another tasty way to refuel mid-day? A shrimp burrito bowl loaded with zesty veggies.
Winner, winner what’s for dinner? Flavor-packed Mediterranean-style shrimp, linguine with clams sautéed in an aromatic stock, Alaska pollock blended with Mexican flavors and mussels simmered in fragrant herbs and white wine.
The best part is that these deliciously satisfying meals can be prepared and on the table in less than 30 minutes—and are perfect for end-of-summer al fresco dining.
