Quick and Easy Weeknight Seafood Dinner Ideas to Try Now

When planning for weeknight dinners, people often think of red meat and chicken recipes to serve. The idea of including seafood often takes a backseat. But you know you should be including more seafood since seafood like tuna, salmon, shrimp, and more are not just tastier but also packed with essential nutrients and omega-3 fatty acids.

This makes them an ideal option for weeknight dinners. After a long working day, spending hours on cooking is the last thing you want to do. So we have come up with these easy-to-make, healthy, mouthwatering weeknight seafood dinners ideas.

Seafood Paella

Seafood paella originally belongs to Valencia, Spain. This recipe is very easy to cook. You can cook it in a typical "paellera" pan. You can use a large frying pan if you don't have a paellera pan. It involves ingredients like fresh seafood, Spanish round rice, and Spanish saffron. Not to mention, if your pan has Socarrat, crispy burnt rice at the bottom of the pan, your paella is perfectly made. 

Mussels Pasta 

Pasta is an Italian cuisine that is popular across the world, thanks to its versatile nature. When combined with one of the popular seafood, mussels, it gives a winning combination that everyone loves. The best thing about this recipe is that it is easy to cook and tastes fantastic. First, saute the garlic and shallots, then add mussels and wine. Your recipe is ready to serve. 

Lemon Butter Scallops 

Pan-seared scallops in butter sauce is a restaurant-worthy recipe that can be prepared in less than 10 minutes. You will need fresh scallops, butter, and lemon juice to prepare this mouth-watering recipe. Cook scallops with butter and lemon juice, and cook them for a few minutes. Once cooked, garnish it with parsley.

Shrimp Fajita

This flavourful authentic Mexcian recipe is the best way to bring beachy vibes to your dinner table on weekdays. If prepared using fresh shrimp, this weeknight seafood dinner recipe takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. Saute sliced bell peppers and onions in a pan for a few minutes. Now toss it with shrimp and marinade ingredients. Add freshly-squeezed lime juice to give a fresh, zesty flavor.

A wealth of information

I absolutely love how informative your website is, I keep landing here while searching hard topics that a lot of fishmongers hop over. Thank you for covering hard topics like "tasteless smoke" and glazing. People deserve to be informed about the food they are consuming. Much appreciated
