Holiday Seafood Recipe Roundup

Turkey and ham get all the love during the holidays. Fish entrees cook in a fraction of the time of more traditional holiday proteins, leaving more time to visit with your guests. Shake things up by serving heart-healthy seafood at your New Year’s soiree. We’ve rounded up eight ways to change up your special occasion feast with simple-to-prepare seafood options. 

These one-bite appetizers look elegant and sophisticated. Smoke the salmon yourself or else pick up a package of smoked salmon for an appetizer that comes together in minutes.

Your guests will think you cooked all day, when really, these come together in just 20 minutes. 

You can never go wrong with a Harmons Shrimp Tray, complete with our famous cocktail sauce. Our seafood departments steam our shrimp daily, giving you the freshest appetizer for your holiday meal.  

Blood orange sauce makes this a gourmet holiday entrée.

Chef Casey makes sea bass festive with citrus, olives and capers.
