Party Like a Pescatarian with these Appetizers & Finger Foods

Party Like a Pescatarian with these Appetizers & Finger Foods


Let’s party like a pescatarian this month in celebration of the inaugural National Pescatarian Month! Seafood is the perfect snack and party food with options from simple to gourmet. We have seafood appetizer and finger food recipes for every budget and flavor profile.

The pescatarian
lifestyle is fresh and very do-able because there are so many varieties of
seafood readily available at the grocery store and from the fish monger. We
think a great way to spread the word about the pescatarian lifestyle is with
some show-stopping seafood treats made special at home this month.

We are sharing
seafood dips, Air Fryer specialties and handhelds. Let’s pull out the stops and
celebrate with deviled eggs elevated with smoked salmon, homemade crab
empanadas using store-bought puff pastry and oysters treated with a dollop of a
cheesy-honey and then char-grilled, plus more.

After biting into
one of these morsels, everyone will understand why we say “Go Pescatarian!” Thanks
for joining in the party during National Pescatarian Month!

Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs

Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs are small, savory bites—packed
with protein and bursting with flavor. The deviled egg has always been good,
but with smoked salmon it is amazing! Thanks to easy swap-outs like Greek
yogurt in place of mayonnaise, these elegant little eggs are light fare.

 Crab Empanadas with Mango Salsa

These crab empanadas look like
they take all day—but with store-bought puff pastry they come together really
fast. The empanadas are impressive little appetizers but can also be served as
a light lunch or a snack. Now, let’s start cooking!

Shrimp Scampi Skewers 

These
shrimp kebabs are packed with good-for-you flavor, marrying lemon zest, the
heat of red pepper flakes and scrumptious shrimp together into one fun,
fabulous dish. Grilled shrimp comes together quickly, making it a favorite way
to cook America’s favorite seafood.

Air Fryer Guiltless Tempura Shrimp

Thanks to the Air Fryer, these golden-brown, crispy
air-fried shrimp are flavorful and healthy without saturated fat. Blink and
these crunchy bite-sized treats will be gone within minutes! Confession: It was
lunchtime when we tested this recipe, and we devoured them in minutes!

Air Fryer Calamari with Creamy Chipotle Sauce

Guiltless golden-brown, crispy air-fried calamari is healthy and flavorful. Taking only 10 minutes to cook and less than 25 minutes to prep, this dish makes a perfect snack or appetizer. You can also prep ahead and freeze to save time. The trick to this recipe is to double-coat the calamari and cook it in batches so the air circulates in the fryer. Trust us—you’ll be hooked on this Air Fryer Calamari with Creamy Chipotle Sauce.

Char-Grilled Honey Parmesan Oysters

We first tasted char-grilled oysters at a
famous restaurant in New Orleans, and we were hooked. So much so that we were
inspired to create our own version at home. Now, without further ado, let’s
jump into our cook-along recipe for Char-Grilled Honey Parmesan Oysters. This
recipe calls for pantry staples to create a charred, cheesy bubbling platter of
oyster goodness.

Baked Spinach and Artichoke Shrimp Dip

Not only is this dish full of flavor, it’s easy to prep
ahead of time. Score a bag of shrimp at the store and make it, bake it and take
it to every celebration! Whether you are headed to a dinner party or a
tailgate, everyone will be asking for “your” shrimp dip recipe.

Simple Salmon Sliders

We bet you have all the
ingredients for our budget-friendly Simple Salmon Sliders in your fridge and
pantry! We took convenient canned/pouched salmon, cracker crumbs, an egg and
added lemon and dill for bright flavor. These little sliders get pan-fried in a
little olive oil for a crunchy patty that’s tender inside.

Grilled Cod and Avocado Tacos

We are so excited to share with you the recipe for the BEST
grilled fish tacos! Yes, the all-caps are totally necessary because these tacos
are just that good. Combining flaky grilled fish with creamy, smoky avocado
makes for a taste out of this world. Ready-to-eat broccoli slaw makes this
recipe easy-peasy to throw together during the week or for a last-minute
gathering. And this recipe is super-versatile—it calls for cod but taste just
as delicious with tilapia, salmon or mahi-mahi. #tacotuesday
