Three Show-Stopping Seafood Dishes to Try This Christmas

Updated: Dec 7, 2023

Impress dinner guest this Christmas with these fabulously simple seafood recipes, all made using fresh, seasonal seafood sourced from sea louth producers. Whether you are looking for a show-stopping starter on Christmas Day, or for an alternative to the usual turkey, these flavoursome dishes are sure to impress your dinner guests!

Talented Tara Walker of East Coast Cookery School’s Lobster with Tomato and Garlic Butter is decadent, yet light and fresh, with lobster sourced from Gyles Quay Lobster and Crab the star of the show.

Smoked salmon is a festive entertaining go-to, but this mouth-watering Dunany Crab and Smoked Salmon Parcels recipe will elevate your starter or party food spread to the next level. The chilli and citrus dressing perfectly complements the sweetness of the crab meat. You will be using this recipe time and time again!

Who doesn’t love a warming bowl of seafood chowder? The addition of Carlingford Oysters in this recipe makes it worthy of the Christmas dinner table, we think, or why not serve it along with the traditional Stephen’s Day turkey sandwiches. Also, if you’re out for a breath of fresh air over the festive period, we highly recommend the seafood chowder to-go from Fisherman’s Catch fish shop in Clogherhead, too – best enjoyed well wrapped up and right by the sea at Port Oriel!

Of course, if you would rather let somebody else do all the hard work, there are over 40 participating restaurants the length of the sea louth trail, from Omeath to Drogheda, serving delicious fresh seafood sourced off the coast of Louth. Check out a full listing here.
