If you want to throw a block party or a family reunion, why not consider having a crawfish boil? You can easily set it up outside in your backyard, and everyone will enjoy it. Crawfish are only around for a few months out of the year, but their peak lands in March, April, and May. It is the time of year to have a crawfish boil! Check out your favorite local vendors or farmers markets for fresh crawfish. Serve them with andouille sausage links, corn on the cob, and spicy seasoned roast potatoes for the most authentic experience.
Surf and Turf
If you want to fire up your grill, a surf and turf party may be the way to go. Treat your family and friends to a surf and turf dinner so that you can experience the best of both land and sea. There are so many combinations and choices you can make up, so everyone is sure to be pleased no matter how picky they are. You can even try something creative like topping regular beef burgers with a crab cake. The possibilities are truly endless, and you are only limited by your imagination!
Romantic Dinner for Two
If you want to carve out some special time for yourself and your significant other, try scaling things back and serving up a dinner for two. Light some candles, display a nice vase of flowers and serve up a simple shrimp scampi. Nothing is more romantic than shellfish and pasta!
