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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Secret Recipe Club: Pineapple and Shrimp Wontons

My choice for this month’s Secret Recipe Club came more out of necessity than anything else. I had small amounts of three ingredients leftover from other recipes and no plan in sight of how to use them. Then I remembered that I hadn’t chosen an SRC recipe yet so I […]

Bang Bang Shrimp

For quite some time I’d heard people raving about the Bang Bang Shrimp from Bonefish Grill but since I had no idea where a Bonefish Grill was, I wasn’t overly eager to check out this recipe. (Ironically, the day I am typing this up, we drove past a Bonefish location.) […]
