3 Seafood Meals to Enjoy for Dinner, Gulf Shores, Alabama

Whether you’re a seafood enthusiast or sampling a few options for the first time, you may be overwhelmed by the numerous selections available at many restaurants. A variety of dishes, from grilled fish to more adventurous fare, are common on most menus. Here are three popular orders to consider for dinner the next time you dine out.

The Best Seafood Dinner Entrées

Gulf Shores, AL dinner1. Seafood Pastas

If you typically enjoy your dinner with a side of carbs, consider a plate of pasta topped with your favorite seafood. Scallops Alfredo, for example, puts a fresh spin on traditional fettucine, incorporating sautéed sea scallops for a hearty finishing touch and some extra protein. For something lighter, opt for a plate of angel hair pasta and choose shrimp as your topping.

2. Fresh Platters

Platters are ideal for the entire family to share, especially if you’re trying something new or serving people with different tastes. A Shrimp Lover’s Plate includes a few flavorful options, including butterfly, coconut, and skewered shrimp. If you’re particularly health-conscious, ask your waiter about a Broiled Seafood platter instead; it’s a great way to enjoy some delicious dishes without the added oil.  

3. Specialty Dishes

For those who can’t get enough of a specific type of seafood, a specialty plate is ideal. Stuffed Shrimp is an ambitious take on a classic meal, while Blackened Catfish amps up the flavor of an old favorite. Most specialty dishes play on the potency of delectable seasonings; think about what pairs well together you as you navigate your options. Both sweet and savory flavors are available.
