Turn up the Grill with Easy Summer Seafood Recipes

Deanie's offers seafood recipes to add to your summer BBQ

Growing up in New Orleans means learning to love Louisiana seafood at an early age.  Practically from birth, locals enjoy gulf shrimp and fish, gulf oysters, and Louisiana crawfish and fresh crabs. The USDA’s Dietary Guidelines last year encouraged Americans to eat at least 8 ounces of seafood per week, but most are not eating that much.  It’s easy to find a restaurant serving fresh Louisiana seafood in our neck of the woods, but it’s also actually fairly simple to prepare seafood at home.  If you’re looking to introduce your family to seafood, we’ve got a few pointers.  Here are some of our favorite easy Summer Seafood grilling recipes!

Family Recipes Flavor Seafood at Deanie's

Posted by Deanie's Seafood on Apr 28 2016

BUCKTOWN, La. (WGNO TV)--March 6, 2015--Deanie's Seafood Restaurant in Bucktown remains one of the most popular destinations for seafood year-round, due in part to the fantastic taste of the food.

'Spice' doesn't necessarily mean it tastes better, and that's the way our mother has cooked and that's the way we've been taught to cook. All these recipes are family recipes from our parents that we still use in here today."
