Break out your sombrero tonight because we are whipping up some Cinco de Mayo-inspired seafood dishes! In the U.S., May 5 is a celebration of Mexican-American culture, so we think this is a perfect excuse to get the gang together for a family-style fiesta with fresh and flavorful seafood. When you pair versatile fish, crab or shrimp with flavors like smoky paprika, fiery chilies, creamy avocados, plus citrusy limes – it’s definitely going to be delicious! Today we’re sharing five must-try seafood recipes for a Cinco de Mayo feast.
Since seafood is a complete source of protein and is packed with heart-healthy omega-3s, so it’s a win-win for your taste buds and your health. We can’t wait for you to try these recipes for empanadas, enchiladas, quesadillas, tacos and burritos that the whole family will love. Set up a build-your-own food bar with toppings that can turn the heat up or down for the littlest seafoodies.
