Happy Sunday and Happy Holidays, seafood lovers!
If you’re throwing a party this holiday season, we have just the appetizers to wow your guests. These five recipes will complement any holiday gathering. Bonus: Many of these can be whipped up in advance. And, that means less time spent cooking and more time spent mixing, mingling and enjoying the festivities.
Get ready for an entertaining WIN with an appetizer spread that’s packed with unbelievably cravable flavors — delicate crab in flaky cups, briny oysters, crunchy calamari and chilled shrimp with a hint of lemon.
The food you eat this time of year should be just as special as the friends and family you share it with. Luckily, these holiday seafood appetizers will knock everyone’s socks off! They’re downright addictive and will ‘wow’ your guests from now through New Year’s celebrations.
Another check in the seasonal ‘win’ box? Eating seafood two times a week can boost heart and brain health, and may even help you live longer. Plus, seafood is a great source of protein and omega-3s DHA and EPA. When it comes to the nutritional benefits of these holiday seafood appetizers, we say ‘the more the merrier!’
