Hot dogs and burgers get all the summer glory, but if you ask us, summer is the perfect time to enjoy seafood. Not only does seafood pair perfectly with summer produce and the light touch of summer-style cooking, but to the delight of many children, it can also be messy and fun. What better way to introduce kids to seafood than to have them dig in with sauces, melted butter, and newspaper on the table?
The Season for Seafood?
While we started this episode about the old school idea that you should skip seafood in the summer months, we both agree — seafood is exactly the summer cooking vibe we’re trying to capture this year! You can cook it as easily and swiftly as you like and pair it with ripe summer vegetables. Here are all the ways we’re eating seafood this summer!
