Great finger food, for parties. These can be made ahead, the shrimp taste better after they soak up the flavor anyhow.If you have time I recommend using frsh boiled shrimp and peel, leaving just the tail. Most seafodd departments at the grocery will do this for you.
Mussels look really nice, when on display over rice or pasta. This is one of my husbands favorites, the aroma it makes while cooking is wonderful. A great dish to impress guests. It's very easy to make.
These are the best! I made these for our Christmas party one year, and they were gone so fast, I didn't even get one. You have to use reall fresh crabmeat, and make sure the pieces are not too big, and never, never use imitation crab.
This was a recipe in my supermarkets seafood dept.. I am always looking for fish recipes, because when it comes to cooking fish, I am a little scared, because I am just clueless as to how to cook it. This was very easy and tasty.
I think crawfish is mostly a southern thing, especially down around Louisianna, where most crawfish come from. You might find fresh crawfish, in someparts of the south, but most of the time, and in most areas, it will be frozen.
Make sure if you are using live oysters, that the shells are tightly closed, and not broken. If the shells are open and don't close when you touch them, throw them away, they are dead, and no good for use.
