When setting up for a party, it pays to diversify your food in as many ways as possible. Seafood appetizer recipes are a great way to do this. The small size of these appetizers makes them perfect as finger food, whether you want a seafood appetizer platter or a more elegant seafood appetizer option. Appliances Connection has you covered with five easy seafood appetizers for parties and other occasions.
Mussel Fritters with Fennel and Smoked Mayonnaise
For a unique flavor profile that can feed a crowd, look at this recipe for mussel fritters. Even the from-scratch mayonnaise is surprisingly simple to make, and the gochujang paste gives the fritters a spicy kick.
Hailing from the M Touch Series, this single wall combi-steam oven from Miele is ideal for making these fritters. Its external steam generation means that you never have to refill its reservoir, and the MasterChef Plus automatic programs make it easy to cook a variety of foods with the touch of a few buttons.
Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Kabobs
If shrimp are more your style, check out these sweet and spicy shrimp kabobs from professional chef Jamie Purviance. With only five ingredients, they're simple yet delicious. Chipotle peppers add spice, while honey makes these kabobs sweet.
This 62-in. freestanding liquid propane grill from Weber's Genesis Series is great for making shrimp kabobs or pretty much anything else. With 787 sq. in. of grilling area and an extra-large prep and serve table, you can even cook multiple dishes at once on it. You can also buy custom fit grillware to allow baking, roasting, searing, steaming, and even stir-frying meals outside.
Crab Cakes with Caper and Dill Remoulade
If you're looking for a seafood appetizer with a classic flavor, you can't go wrong with crab cakes. This recipe combines capers, cornichons, paprika, and dill to make an absolutely mouthwatering remoulade. Old Bay spice mix, chives, and saltines add flavor to the cakes themselves.
This dual fuel range from Hestan is just what you need for crab cakes or any other heavy-duty cooking application. Its Circuflame™ Power Burner delivers up to 30,000 BTUs of heat in seconds, but can go as low as 500 BTUs without its flame flickering or dying. Its raised burner caps make it easy to clean up after you're done cooking, as well.
Smoked Salmon Souffle
For a light seafood appetizer, look at this recipe for smoked salmon souffle. It's amazingly airy while still being delicious, and the combination of cayenne pepper and nutmeg will help bring out the delicate flavor of the smoke in the salmon.
This 30-in slide-in gas range from Bosch's 800 Series comes with 4.8 cu. ft. of capacity, which makes it possible to make the smoked salmon souffle for a crowd if you want. Its heavy-duty construction (down to the metal knobs) give you a premium cooking experience. As a bonus, its cavity is fully self-cleaning.
Seared Tuna with Laksa Sauce and Sesame Rice
Another easy seafood appetizer recipe is this one for seared tuna with laksa sauce and sesame rice. If you've ever wanted to try making sushi, this recipe is a great way to dip your toes in. While the tuna itself adds filling flavor, the real star of the show is the laksa sauce, which combines garlic, lemongrass, and coconut cream.
Fisher & Paykel's Contemporary Series brings us this 24-in. natural gas cooktop, which is perfect for searing the tuna and boiling the rice. Its Innovalve technology enables you to precisely control its flames. It installs flush with your countertop, giving it a clean appearance as well.
