February 15, 2021
4 min. read
If you’re like many other home cooks this past year, maybe you’ve found yourself stretching your culinary limits with each new kitchen creation. Perhaps you’ve tried baking a soufflé or attempting a lookalike recipe of your favorite restaurant dish. (Or maybe you’ve even tried your hand at baking bread—gasp!)
One thing many cooking novices tend to shy away from is seafood recipes, whether for lack of experience or due to limited resources.
However, this beloved food group is not as tricky to get right as it may seem. So—if you’ve been holding off on your favorite lobster, crab, shrimp, or shellfish dish until you can resume indoor restaurant dining again, then these recipes are for you!
Lobster Mac and Cheese with Butter Bread Crumb Topping
Ah…delicious, succulent lobster. This may seem like one of those “untouchable” ingredients you’d never dare to cook at home, but we assure you—it can be done! Recreate this classic steakhouse menu item with quick-boiled lobster tails, al dente campanelle pasta, a three-cheese blend with simple béchamel sauce, and a topping of garlicky toasted Martin’s Butter Bread crumbs.
Scallop BLT Sub
Elevate your favorite lunch staple with a simple and classy addition of a few seared sea scallops and a tasty spread of garlic and herb-infused butter. Even better? Serve it up on a Martin’s Hoagie Roll to build a stacked submarine sandwich fit for a king.
Crispy Baked Shrimp with Secret Sauce
This crispy, craveable shrimp dish closely resembles “Bang Bang Shrimp” which you may have ordered before at a popular steak and seafood restaurant chain. Our variation serves up oven-baked shrimp coated in homemade Martin’s Potato Bread crumbs with a side of sweet Thai chili dipping sauce.
Crab Cake Sliders by Miss Information
If you can’t remember the last time you got to visit your favorite beachside crab shack, try this recipe for Crab Cake Sliders courtesy of blogger, Miss Information. Simply form the following ingredients into slider-sized patties: lump crab meat, breadcrumbs, a beaten egg, mayonnaise, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and a dash of hot sauce; then fry in a skillet until golden brown and serve on Martin’s 12-Sliced Slider Potato Rolls with a slathering of remoulade.
Parmesan Baked Tilapia
Sometimes we underestimate the simplicity and appeal of a perfectly seasoned and cooked fish fillet. This breaded parmesan-crusted baked tilapia dish served with tartar sauce can be prepared in thirty minutes and is something you could find at any respectable dining establishment.
Lobster Roll from Ditch Plains
Here’s a seafood dish straight out of a famous chef’s own cookbook: the Lobster Roll by Chef Marc Murphy, Food Network personality and head of Benchmarc Restaurants. This delicious creation includes a generous helping of lobster meat, coated in tarragon and parsley-mayo and old bay seasoning, served on a Martin’s Long Potato Roll. While you may no longer be able to enjoy this dish at NYC-based restaurant Ditch Plains, you can recreate it in your own home thanks to this recipe!
Sheet Pan Shrimp Scampi
This sheet pan shrimp scampi with oven-toasted garlic bread is so effortless you might as well add it to your regular meal rotation. Serve it up with a side of fettuccini alfredo or garlic-butter linguini and you have yourself a classic restaurant dish.
Crab Rangoon Crostini
A fun spin on the popular Chinese restaurant appetizer, these Crab Rangoon Crostini by blogger Snappy Gourmet are to die for. The savory combo of cream cheese, crab meat, green onions, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder, spread onto toasted Martin’s Party Rolls, and topped with tangy sweet and sour sauce, will have you craving seconds (or thirds).
Ahi Tuna & Avocado Toasts
At the top of the list for hard-to-replicate seafood dishes are Asian-inspired favorites like sushi and poke. While we can’t speak to the expert technique required to master the perfect sushi roll, if you can get your hands on sushi-grade fish, these simple-yet-satisfying Ahi Tuna and Avocado Toasts may be enough to tide you over until your next sushi fix.
Bay Scallop Po’ Boys
Unless you hail from New Orleans, it may be a rare and cherished occurrence that you find yourself indulging in a classic Po’ Boy, but this one made with seasoned, breaded, and fried scallops and served on Martin’s Long Potato Rolls with lettuce, mayo, and fresh-squeezed lemon juice will make it so you don’t have to miss a thing!
