Easter Seafood Guide
Happy Easter from Cameron’s Seafood! We’ve developed some creative spins on the Easter classics to give your family a seafood (and spring) filled holiday. Whether you’re a ham or lamb fam, we’ve got some mouth watering ideas that you definitely need to try…
Elevating the Classics – Main Dish
Lamb…If lamb is your entree of choice for your Easter dinner table, elevate your options with a spring inspired surf and turf. Partner your lamb with salmon, either pan seared and flaked for a fennel and citrus salad or poached and topped with a dijon cream sauce…yum!
Ham…This is the classic main for my family, forever the Easter ham. This year I’m jazzing up the menu by adding crab legs!!!! Yep, whose moving into ‘favorite’ cousin/niece/daughter category this year? This GIRL! Who doesn’t love crab legs and with Cameron’s Seafood snow crab legs and king crabs legs to chose from…mmmmm…. best decision EVER!
Roast Chicken or Turkey… There is nothing wrong with the classic roast chicken or turkey dinner…elevate this dish by creating a clever culinary stuffing using jumbo lump crab meat or crab cakes! Mix in some spring greens and herbs for a truly seasonal touch.
Elevating the Classics – Superstar Sides
Peas…Whether your side dish is buttered peas or pea soup, seafood will elevate this dish into the stratosphere. I love topping sautéed peas with garlicky buttery jumbo lump crab meat or flaking cooked salmon and using that as a perfectly spring addition to pea soup.
Asparagus…Get cheesy with your asparagus this Easter and top your roasted asparagus with crab laced cheese sauce (broiled bubbly in the oven). Cheese not? Then class up this classic with seared scallops or poached shrimp.
Potatoes… Lobster makes any side dish extraordinary and I love adding lobster meat to my potatoes au gratin-makes my family feel very special. Or top creamy mashed potatoes with sautéed lobster (with a hint of white wine) and chives.
Deviled Eggs…The elevated seafood options are endless when it comes to deviled eggs. Try topping these classics with shrimp salad, fried oysters, sautéed lobster or jumbo lump crab meat.
