While some choose to BBQ and some prefer classic holiday staples, others are skipping the poultry and serving seafood as the centerpiece of their holiday feast. So whether it’s the staple of the evening or simply a complementary option, you can’t go wrong when featuring seafood at your holiday dinner this year.
The Versatility of Seafood
Though often overlooked and underrated, seafood is an exceptionally versatile, healthy and flavorful dinner pick. Seafood naturally adds a lot of vivid color and texture, and is lighter than meat dishes—simply put, it’s a fresh upgrade from the same old classic year-after-year turkey dinner.
People rarely think of seafood as the main entree for a holiday feast, so preparing a seafood dish will encourage your guests to try something exciting and new. Seafood is easy to adapt to most dietary needs, plus it's light and healthy, so there won't be any food coma naps after this party!
Seafood dishes can range in elegance level, so you can easily choose a dish that fits every dinner party scenario. For example, if you are just having a quaint get-together with some friends, try making bacon wrapped scallops, lobster mac and cheese, or shrimp cocktail.
If you want to step it up and make a more elevated dish to impress your guests, however, then try making handmade clam cakes, a gourmet lobster dinner, or a sizzling filet mignon. Pick a fish to fit your dish and you can’t go wrong!
