Harlem, Manhattan
3 Sides to Eat With Your Seafood Meal, Manhattan, New York

From salmon to cod and crawfish to shrimp, seafood can be enjoyed in many different ways. If you’re passionate about enjoying different flavors, there are many sides you can select to bring out the tender and juicy taste of your seafood. The next time you visit your favorite restaurant, pair your meal with one of the sides below to get the most out of your experience. 

What Side Dishes Pair Well With Seafood?

1. Potatoes

Since potatoes are versatile, they make a great side dish for seafood or fish. Garlic fries are tasty on their own, but also bring out all kinds of flavors in cod, shrimp, and crab. Sweet potato wedges seasoned with herbs and honey butter are a nutritious, delicious alternative. For an extra kick to complement your fish or seafood, choose fries loaded with pickled jalapeños, herbs, and cotija cheese. 

2. Grilled or Steamed Vegetables

For a unique take on cauliflower, try it wok-seared and seasoned with herbs and garlic. Corn on the cob with cotija cheese is an appetizing side dish, too, as the sweetness complements salmon and cod. 

3. Durty Rice

A side dish of white rice is tasty on its own, but why not kick it up a notch? Durty rice is a traditional Caribbean side dish that is prepared with peas and different seasonings to create a simple side dish that packs a lot of flavor. From grilled shrimp to deep-fried cod, durty rice pairs perfectly with virtually all types of seafood.
