Summer is one of the best times for seafood. Pile your plate high with delicious shrimp, crawfish, clams, oysters and crab, because they”re all in season. There are plenty of meal ideas for you to incorporate seafood into your dinner menu at home.

Crawfish Boil
Your mouth will water while just reading the description for this delicious meal. It”s basically a pot of crab, crawfish, shrimp, potatoes, corn on the cob, and sausage in seasoned water stewing in each other”s juices until served piping hot on a table covered in newspaper. Grab some friends to contribute ingredients, get ready for a great time and get cooking!

Salmon Steaks
Have a date night, or a low-key dinner by preparing salmon steaks. Salmon is filled with healthy omega- 3 fatty acids, and is just delicious. Bake or broil your salmon steaks and serve them with a side of asparagus for a healthy meal.

Lobster
You can never go wrong with lobster in the summer. There are plenty of ways to prepare lobster including broiling, grilling and baking this delicious crustacean. Incorporate lobster into your menu and make a New England lobster roll. All you need is lobster, mayonnaise, pepper, celery and sandwich rolls to get started on this summer classic.

Shrimp
You can fry, grill and bake shrimp as the main dish for a meal, or you can do something simpler like add shrimp to a salad or make an appetizer like shrimp cocktail. Try tossing some shrimp in a delicious seafood gumbo, or make something more adventurous like shrimp quesadillas or shrimp tacos. Yum!

Oysters
Summertime is the perfect time for oysters. Try them raw, in cocktails or pan-fried. Just make sure if you”re serving chilled oysters they are the right temperature.
