For the Seafood Lover in You

No, no, no, no. This post is not sponsored by Red Lobster. I just know that we all have a little seafood lover within us just waiting to get out. Amirite? Happy Friday my darlings! What is in store for the weekend? I bet you can guess what I have planned. No. Not a trip to Red Lobster. Packing! Tres chic. Anyway, as we all gushed about garden soirees earlier in the week, I obviously have outdoor events on the brain and what better food to serve in an outdoor setting than seafood. Crab boils, hushpuppies, shrimp boil kebabs, crabcakes and coconut shrimp. Serious seafood. I have compiled the best of the best seafood recipes that will leave you with the below aftermath. Which means, great success.

And for all of you who are jonesing for seafood like I am, here are the tools to get you that seafood soiree that we are all desperately wishing to throw. Don't forget the butcher's paper/newspaper. You will thank me later.
