3 Universal Ways to Enjoy Seafood Dishes, Manhattan, New York

Seafood dishes can be found in many cultures and places, from coastal locales like the Caribbean to landlocked states in the Midwest. When you are searching for tasty seafood that everyone in your group will enjoy, consider opting for these beloved options to suit every taste bud and dietary preference. There are plenty of ways to enjoy the same fish.

Seafood Can Always Be Enjoyed These 3 Ways

1. Grilled With Veggies

If the people in your group are looking for a healthy way to enjoy shrimp, crab, or lobster, order grilled seafood with veggies. The bright, zesty flavors of the grilled veggies will help bring out the many unique tastes in the seafood. Plus, this cooking method helps the meat maintain nutrients like protein and healthy fats.

2. Steampots

seafoodSeafood cooks well using steam, a method that retains some of the natural acidity to promote the best flavor. Choose a restaurant that steams shrimp, crawfish, and crab legs with add-ons such as sweet potatoes and corn to make a full meal. Many steampot combos come in large sizes like one-pound servings so you can get several varieties to dig into as a group.

3. Fried Platters

If you’re looking for bold flavors and premium snacking servings, opt for a fried seafood platter. Share baskets of pom pom shrimp, crab cakes, or fish; everyone will enjoy popping these tasty small bites in their mouths! Sharing these appetizer-style dishes is an excellent way to give everyone a taste of various seafood options.
