A variety of recipes using seafood, such as fish, crab, shrimp and scallops.

New Orleans Oyster Dressing

New Orleans Oyster Dressing is a hearty dressing (stuffing) made with bread, cajun seasonings, veggies and oysters. It’s a great savory side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I’ve always been a classic stuffing kind of girl. Celery, onion, bread and seasonings is all I need to enjoy a heaping spoonful […]

#FantasticalFoodFight: Scallops with Orange Rum Sauce

I’ve had this scallop recipe saved forever but it never got made because scallops are just so ridiculously overpriced here. I can get them from the grocery store closest to me but I’d consider the quality semi-sketchy. My only other alternative is Wegman’s where they’re sometimes as high as $32 […]

Recipe ReMake: Maryland Crab Cakes

As a blogger, there are tons of recipes I have that are in need of updating. Sometimes just the photos and sometimes the actual recipe as well. The Festive Foodies group has started a monthly redo of recipes, where we all share them on the same day. Remaking these Maryland […]

#FoodieExtravaganza: Chicken, Sausage and Shrimp Paella

Happy first day of March! I cannot believe we are already three months in 2017! Time sure is flying by, especially with how crazy busy I’ve been lately. It’s time for me to participate in #FoodieExtravaganza again, a monthly blogging event where each theme comes from a National Food Holiday. […]

Broiled Mussels

Mussels are one of the seafood varieties that I have mixed feelings about. I like them, but I don’t really have the confidence in preparing them to serve them at home very often. I know it’s not all that difficult, but something about those closed shells makes me a little […]

#FreshTastyValentine: Scallops with White Wine Sauce

Wine, seafood, steak and strawberries are the first foods that come to mind when I think about popular Valentine’s Day ingredients. Steak and seafood are pricier ingredients and strawberries aren’t in season so restaurants can easily mark up these items on a holiday known for romance and splurging. If you’ve […]

Garlic Oil Pan-Seared Scallops

On my rankings list of favorite seafood, scallops fall right below steamed crabs. Unfortunately, it’s hard to get them around here for a reasonable price. Most grocery stores offer the frozen variety with the origin unknown. No thanks. Or to get fresh ones, my only choice is Giant which is […]

Spicy Thai Curry Mussels

 I usually go grocery shopping on Friday’s after work because the store isn’t super busy and I can usually get in and out pretty easily. Plus, I have a bit of OCD that makes me want to come home to a cleaned house (thank you cousin) with arms full of […]

Caramelized Sea Scallops

Back when I first started cooking on a regular basis, the grocery store had sea scallops on sale and we picked some up. I’d only had scallops at restaurants before and I had no idea how to make them. Back then, Food Network and Allrecipes were my go-to locations to […]
