Happy June, Seafoodies!
Let’s celebrate the Family Grill Master AKA the Head Honcho AKA “Dad” with a June Meal Plan that’s an ode to fathers everywhere—and the start of enjoying seafood al fresco all summer long! Father’s Day is June 21 so bookmark these recipes because they are fit for a king, but feel free to begin enjoying today.
We’ve got a lot of great ideas on tap for Dad. How about treating him to a breakfast starring delicious crab muffins? Or, surprise him with a lunchtime Lobster BLT? For dinner, fire up the grill for a family BBQ featuring Mahi-Mahi, Wild Alaska Pollock or Tuna skewers. Dad clearly deserves the best and that’s tasty, healthy seafood. Plus, you’ll help Dad get in a heart-healthy serving of seafood in. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends eating 2-3 seafood meals a week. That’s easy to accomplish when there is an abundance and variety of seafood available across the country!
So on to the June Meal Plan – let’s make this Father’s Day one for the books with fabulous seafood recipes for Dad!
Dad’s Hearty Breakfast
Simple Shrimp Scramble
A King’s breakfast is in store for Dad with sweet shrimp and eggs scrambled in a sizzling skillet with peppers, onions, garlic – and his favorite cheese. You probably don’t even need a trip to the store to whip this up in about 10 minutes. Guaranteed to get Dad’s day off to a great start.
Our own Crab Muffins make breakfast extra special for Dad on his day. They’re also perfect to pack in a cooler and take on a morning hike or kayaking. Pro tip: Make a batch of these and put them in the freezer so they will be ready to go when you are.
Dad’s Backyard Lunch
No-Fuss Lemon-Pepper Salmon Burgers
Does your Dad love a burger? He’ll flip over these elevated skillet No-Fuss Lemon-Pepper Salmon Burgers. Pile on the condiments and serve with his favorite chips for a backyard lunch to remember. Not only are these burgers incredibly easy to make, they also deliver a rich dose of healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
The BLT just got boujee with a decadent lobster makeover! Sweet lobster tails, bacon, lettuce, tomato. This Lobster BLT is so good Dad may hand over that remote control.
It’s all about Dad this time, so let the munching opportunities continue throughout the day! You can fill out the midday noshing window with this delicious Clam Pizza snack. For a shortcut, pick up refrigerated pizza dough or try this on pita.
Dad’s Well-Deserved Dinner
Grilled Mahi Mahi in Lemon Butter Sauce
We might be stuck at home, but this meal can help transport him to the Caribbean or maybe the Florida Keys. Rich in vitamin B12, Mahi Mahi even helps to boost heart and brain health. Plus, it tastes incredible when covered with this lemon butter sauce.
Grilled Parmesan Wild Alaska Pollock Foil Packs
For Father’s Day, want to create a restaurant-quality dish that he can enjoy in the comfort of home? Wild Alaska Pollock is the perfect option. It’s a decadent white fish that’s easy enough to cook. You’ll get bonus points for this elegant and delicious meal.
Grilled Salmon Skewers
If you subscribe to the notion that everything tastes better on a stick, salmon is no exception. This beautiful pink fish is big on flavor and nutrients! You can create a colorful dinner for Dad with these Grilled Salmon Skewers. (Maybe grill up some pineapple, too – we think Dad will agree that fruit and fish pair perfectly.)
