Use These Tips To Create The Seafood Platter Of Your Dreams

Depending on who you ask, seafood platters are among the tastiest dishes when it comes to seafood. When creating your customized seafood platter, you can include a wide array of foods. Some people use meat, vegetables, and seafood like shrimp and crab legs in seafood boils. When making your platters this holiday season, consider these helpful tips. 


Create the platter of your dreams!

Use Color In Your Seafood Platter

You should be able to combine up to five different colors of food. But three colors are a good starting point; brown, green, red, purple, and orange may help you create an appeal that entices the eyes before pleasing your tastebuds.

Use Garneshments For Your Seafood Platter

Garnishes are often overlooked when it comes to meal presentation because they are considered the final touch. You can use fresh herbs, such as basil and mint, to enhance your platter. It would help if you always were sure to use garnishments like lemon and parsley, as well as these can complement your seafood boils and platters.

Make Sure You Have Complementary Sides

Stacking foods is becoming increasingly popular among many food experts and those that love to enjoy seafood. Unlocking the secret of stacking is one of the most popular trends in dining. When doing so, remember that it is ok to stack foods at an appropriate height. In this scenario, height is your ally, not your adversary. Side foods, such as crab cakes, steak, and salmon, can all be served as sides. You can also apply this same concept to your appetizers and desserts.
