Summer of Seafood

I could eat seafood everyday, especially if it shrimp. This summer we have been eating seafood like its going out of style. Here are some of my favorite seafood dinners so far this summer. 

Lobster Roll and a shrimp taco from 167 Raw in Charleston. This was the best place that we ate at on our recent trip to Charleston

Shrimp PoBoy from The Charleston Harbor Fish House in Charleston. They also had a Key Lime Pie that I still dream of.

We haven't just been eating out this summer for our seafood fix, but we have had it many nights for dinner at home. 

For our anniversary dinner we had steamed shrimp, crab cakes and stuffed clams. It was deletcable! 

Crab legs and shrimp. This I could eat everyday! {PS- If you live in a state with a Publix grocery store and you have a craving for seafood, but don't want to cook it then head to Publix! They will steam it for you at no additional cost.} 

Low Country Boil is one of my absolute favorites. Here is the recipe that I use:

  • 6 ears of corn, cut in half
  • 6 (4 inch) links smoked sausage
  • 12 red new potatoes, cut in half if large
  • 3 lbs fresh shrimp, unpeeled
  • 2 teaspoons crab boil seasoning, per quart of water
Fill a large pot with enough water to cover all of the ingredients. Add the crab boil and bring to a boil. Adjust the crab boil to suit your taste. When the water boils, add the potatoes and sausage. Cook on medium heat for 20 minutes. Add corn and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Add shrimp and cook for no more than 3 minutes. Drain and serve with warm bread

What is your summer favorite?
