Desserts That Go Well with Seafood

Desserts and SeafoodEveryone loves a delicious seafood dinner. If you’re planning a menu around some fresh lobster, shrimp or other marine delights, you might be wondering how to cap off the meal!

Read on for a few ideas for desserts that go well with seafood.

Key lime pie

Think about how often you see fish and seafood dishes accompanied by a wedge of lemon. That’s because seafood and citrus complement each other so well, they were practically made for each other! Keep the citrus vibe going with a summery key lime pie. Other citrusy ideas? Lemon meringue pie, lemon bars or orange sorbet.

Chocolate mousse

The richness of chocolate balances out the taste of saltier seafood dishes, especially those seasoned with Old Bay. Try a rich but light chocolate mousse, perhaps with some salted caramel sauce on top to continue the interplay of sweet and salty flavors. You could also keep things easy and spoon the sauce over some chocolate ice cream or sorbet.

Fruit tarts

Who said fruit can’t be decadent? Treat-yourself with fruit desserts, like mixed fruit tarts or pavlovas covered in whipped cream, both make an excellent complement for lighter seafood dishes like broiled lobster tail.
