10 Seafood Recipes to Try

10 Seafood Recipes to Try superheroyou

Did you know that October is National Seafood Month? Lots of people are afraid of trying seafood recipes at home – but in fact, it’s easy (and healthy!) if you have the right recipe. Check out our picks.

1. Mussels in White Wine Sauce.

Don’t shell out $16 for mussels in a restaurant! This recipe is far more affordable, simple and amazing paired with some crusty French bread. Use farmed blue mussels to make your meal sustainable, too.

2. Fish Tacos with Salsa Verde and Radish Salad.

Craving Mexican but want a healthier meal? These fish tacos are incredibly light, forgoing cheese and avocado for salsa verde – plus, the fish is broiled instead of deep-fried. Bonus? The whole meal comes together in less than 15 minutes! And if you don’t like US-farmed tilapia, you can substitute any white fish you like.

3. Soy-Marinated Grilled Tuna

Add a little Asian flair to your table with this soy-marinated grilled tuna, which comes together in just a few minutes. It’s easy but looks fancy, making it a perfect meal to impress a date.

4. Simple Light Crab Cakes.

The secret ingredient in these crab cakes? Saltines – which sounds strange but tastes divine. This recipe lives up to this name, substituting Greek yogurt for mayonnaise and with just 8 ingredients. Just mix everything up, form into patties and cook in a skillet for about 10 minutes.

5. Salmon Burgers with Lime Mayonnaise.

By now, you’ve heard about the World Health Organization report that linked processed and red meats to higher levels of cancer. But you don’t have to give up burgers entirely! Just make yours with salmon instead.

6. Smoky Oyster Chowder with Bacon, Rosemary and Fennel.

When the weather cools down, a bowl of hot chowder is a comforting way to warm up. Improve yours with some plump oysters and smoky bacon. Yum!

7. Prosciutto-Wrapped Scallops with Spinach.

Love bacon-wrapped scallops? Reduce the fat in this popular appetizer by substituting prosciutto and adding some spinach. This is a pretty easy and hands-off recipe, so it would be great for a dinner party.

8. Barramundi En Papillote.

“En papillote” is a fancy French way of saying “in parchment,” and baking fish in parchment is one of the easiest and most delicious ways you can do it! We love this recipe, but feel free to change both the fish type and the vegetables on top as it’s incredibly versatile.

9. Easy Halibut Fillets with Herb Butter.

Sometimes, you just want the fish on your plate to shine. On those days, this halibut with herbed butter is your best friend.

10. Easy Cioppino

The classic Italian stew cioppino is a holiday favorite, but the traditional version can take hours to cook. Luckily, SeriousEats’ version takes just 20 minutes AND it’s all done in one pot.
