Although many of us think of seafood as a light summer dish for grilling and enjoying at a barbecue with friends, prepared with the right recipe, it is also a delicious meal for the chilly fall months. As the weather grows cool here in Maine, we have found a few hearty seafood recipes that will warm your belly and make your taste buds happy!
Salmon and Eggplant Curry
This colorful and full-flavored dish is easy to prepare, perfect for making after an afternoon of raking leaves and cleaning up the yard. Serve over brown rice for a hearty and healthy dinner your whole family will enjoy.
Chowders are one of our favorite fall meals, and this delicious version pairs a few of our favorite fish and shellfish: salmon, mussels, and littleneck clams. Serve with crusty bread and share with guests visiting for the holidays. After a few days of travel, this chowder is sure to make them feel at home.
Linguine with Shrimp and Tomatoes
A tasty twist on a traditional pasta recipe, mix up your fall recipe routine with some shrimp. Prep time only takes 15 minutes, making this filling meal a great option to feed the family after a long day of school and sports practice.
