Seafood and Desserts: Finishing Up Your Meal

Seafood and Desserts: Finishing Up Your Meal

Even though you might doubt it, seafood and desserts do complement each other well. Here are some suggestions for how to finish up your meal in style.

The mix of salty and savory is a delightful combination, as is when you combine something salty with something sweet. Even though you might doubt it, seafood and desserts do complement each other well. Here are some suggestions for how to finish up your meal in style. 

Key Lime Pie 

Lemons are often used to accompany several different kinds of seafood, whether it is fish, shrimp, or shellfish. You might also see it used to add another dimension of flavor to lobsters. The reason for this is that citrus makes for an outstanding companion for almost any type of seafood. So it stands to reason that you could try experimenting with lime instead of lemon. Key lime pie makes for an elegant dessert to light up your taste buds on a hot summer day. You can also give lemon meringue pie a try if you don’t care for plain lemons – you can also use the lemons to make lemonade to add some flavor to your cup of ice water. Lemon bars and orange sorbet are also refreshing choices that you might not have considered before.  

Chocolate Mousse

Richness and saltiness balance each other out and also create a complex flavor profile. Maryland’s favorite seasoning mix also stands out, but that also means you can give Costas Inn’s house blend of spices if you want something new on your palate. Find a chocolate mousse that is light, sweet, and rich all at the same time. A salted caramel sauce adds another boost of flavor, especially if you enjoy caramel in any of its forms. Sometimes, staying simple is the key to enjoying the last of your meal without filling up too much – chocolate-flavored ice cream and sorbet are other options, also.

Fruit Tarts

Fruit tarts can be part of a delicious breakfast or brunch. Turnovers, danishes, and pastries can also be served as desserts, too. Try eating a fruit tart or two after you’ve finished your oysters, clams, shrimp, or even crawfish boil. Heap on some whipped cream or glazed sugar to help make everything sweeter, whether or not you like to pair it with a broiled lobster tail that you had as part of a surf and turf dish.
