Bacon Wrapped Scallops-Big Daddy’s Seafood Market


Makes: 8 servings
Total Time: 50min

What You’ll Need:

1 1/2 lbs of rinsed and dried scallops

1 lb of thinly sliced bacon with the strips cut in half crosswise

Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

large lettuce leaves

What To Do:

First off you will need to preheat your oven broiler. Next you will spray a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Now wrap each of your scallops with a nice piece of the bacon and secure the wrap with a toothpick. Then place the scallops wrapped in bacon on your sprayed baking sheet and then season them with your salt and pepper. Then cook your scallops under your broiler for about fifteen to twenty minutes. Make sure the bacon is cooked through. I also suggest turning them once mid-way through. Lastly just serve them on a large platter with lettuce leaves (optional) and place your bacon-wrapped scallops on the platter.

*I tend to find it better when you use larger scallops. Simply because they will shrink a little bit as you  are cooking them. Bacon-Wrapped Scallops With Chili Butter Wrapped Scallops With Spicy Mayo Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Scallops

Two cups of Bisquick from the box baking mix
One and three quarters cup of finely shredded fresh cheddar cheese

One third a cup of crab meat it should be fresh if possible

How to make it:

First preheat your oven up to 450 F.

Sprinkle the parsley over the top of the dough. Be sure the dried parsley flakes are crushed fine. You can easily crush the flakes in a small bowl with your thumb and forefinger.

Sprinkle the crab over the top of the dough.

Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the crab. Don’t go all of the way to the edge of the dough – leave a margin of a half-inch or so around the edge.

Bake for 14-16 minutes or until the cheese on top begins to slightly brown.

Combine the remaining butter with the garlic powder and brush it over the top of the bake as soon as it comes out of the oven. Slice it like a pizza into pieces and serve hot.

Crawfish Ravioli Seafood Recipe


This recipe is a great Cajun classic! If you love Italian food with a Cajun flare then THIS is what you are looking for! Pair it with our Easy Mardi Gras King Cake Knots Recipe for a full on Louisiana inspired feast! Make sure to keep checking back for more recipes and updates!


Crawfish Ravioli Seafood Recipe


This seafood recipe is one of my favorites! It is a flavorful dish that marries my two most favorite cuisines, Cajun and Italian. Living here in Louisiana, the crawfish are plentiful and always anticipated during fishing season. It is our favorite time of year when we get to whip up these crawfish seafood recipes in all sorts of variety! This is definitely one that will have you wishing crawfish were in season all year round!


Crawfish Ravioli




















Total Time: 45 min.


1/4cup margarine or 1/2 a stick of butter
1cup to 1 1/2cups of heavy whipping cream
1 sm yellow onion
1/2 of a large bell pepper
3 cloves of minced garlic
1 green onion chopped coarsely
Season to taste
Dash of nutmeg
1lb of cleaned crawfish tails
1 box breaded cheese ravioli (usually in the frozen food section) or 1 pack of fresh cheese ravioli
Parmesan cheese for garnish


Begin by preheat oven to the temperature marked on the breaded ravioli package. -OR- If you’re using fresh ravioli, bring salted water to a boil in a pot.
In a heavy bottom saucepan, melt your butter or margarine over a med heat. Add your bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Saute’ until the onions are clear in color. Add the crawfish tails and stir. Saute’ for approx 3-5min until tails begin to curl. Add your heavy whipping cream, seasoning and the nutmeg. Stir. Allow mixture to simmer for 10min over low to medium heat. While that simmers, boil fresh ravioli, or bake your breaded ravioli according to package directions.

If sauce seems to be too thin, you can use flour, or as a last resort, corn starch to thicken it up. The sauce should be thick in consistency similar to an Alfredo sauce.
Once the ravioli is ready to plate, check for consistency and seasoning one last time. (Remember not to exceed 15min crawfish cooking time. This may cause it to become tough.) Plate your ravioli in stacked circular pattern, ladeling crawfish cream sauce over ravioli. Garnish with chopped the green onion and parmesean cheese.

Sides recommended are garlic bread or maybe some homemade rolls. You may also try serving a green salad with a sweet onion dressing or vinegrette.

Healthy Eating Recipe: Lemon-Garlic Shrimp & Vegetables

One of my favorite dishes is shrimp scampi. Here we will be taking a look at a healthy variation of this dish. Eating healthy does not have to taste bad. When you eliminate the butter and substitute vegetables and seasonings you can have a meal that is easy to create, tastes good and is healthy for you. You can serve over linguine, whole wheat couscous or quinoa.

2 Nice large bell peppers, I prefer red, diced

2 lbs of asparagus. Cut into 1 inch lengths

2 teaspoons of freshly grated lemon

One half a teaspoon of salt, divided

5 whole cloves of garlic minced up

1 lb of uncooked shrimp count of 26 – 30 per lb. Devein and peeled

1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

1 teaspoon cornstarch

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

What To Do:

1. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil inside a large sized non-stick skillet or pan using medium to high heat. Add the bell peppers, asparagus, lemon zest and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until just beginning to soften, about 6 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a bowl; cover to keep warm.

2. Add your remaining 2 teaspoons oil and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add shrimp and cook, stirring, for about a minute. Whisk broth and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth and add to the pan along with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until the sauce has thickened slightly and the shrimp are pink and just cooked through, about 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat. Stir in lemon juice and parsley. Serve the shrimp and sauce over the vegetables.

Low Carb Foods Coconut Shrimp Recipe

Trying to stay with a low carb diet can be hard, especially since there are probably foods you loved that you are now missing out on. This is a great article with a low carb foods coconut shrimp recipe. The coconut gives the dish that “fried” crunch while keeping it on the healthy side for you. Looking for other low carb food recipes? Check out our Low Carb Foods section! Also make sure to keep checking back for new recipes and updates.


Low Carb Foods Coconut Shrimp Recipe


Low Carb Foods Coconut Shrimp Recipe




This is a sugar free version of the coconut shrimp dish. Another great thing about this recipe version is that it also fits in the low carb foods lifestyle! This dish can be used as a party food, an appetizer, or even as your main course. In this recipe there is a bit of sweetener your coating, simply because most popular restaurant versions do have a sweet taste to them, however this is totally optional.




What you’ll need:

1 lb of large raw shrimp (peeled and deveined)

2/3 cup of coconut flour

1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp of black pepper

1 tsp of salt

2 eggs

2 Tbsp of water

1/2 cup of coconut (shredded and unsweetened)

Cooking oil of your choice

*Optional sugar sub that is = to 1Tbsp of sugar

How To Cook It:

First, mix the coconut flour with the salt and cayenne and black peppers. Then whisk your eggs (I used a fork) in a small sized dish, and then mix with the water. This is where you will add your sweetener if you want. Now put the shredded coconut in a separate bowl. Put some of the cooking oil in a large skillet to where it is about 3/4 inches in depth. Then heat your oil to about 350-360 degrees F. (*TIP* the oil is ready if when you put the tip of a wooden spoon handle in the oil, it makes bubbles around it.)

Now, take the shrimp by the tail, and roll it in the coconut flour. You’ll then shake it to get most of the flour off. Next dip the shrimp in the egg, and again shake off any excess. Finally, you’ll roll it in the shredded coconut. Fry your shrimp until they are golden on each side. This should take about 2 mins on each side. Try not to crowd the pan because this will cause the oil’s temp to drop. This will allow more oil to be absorbed by the shrimp and will make them very greasy and less healthy. When turning and removing the shrimp I think to us tongs, but you can use whatever works best for you. Now, remove your shrimp from the pan on to a paper towel covered plate or on a cooling rack. Serve and enjoy!


**In the original recipe I noticed it called for 1/3 cup of coconut flour, but I found if 2/3 cup was used I liked it better because there was a better coating on my shrimp. You can do what you prefer.

Party Sandwich Recipes


Looking for a delicious twist for party sandwiches? This article has three great recipes if you’re looking to go beyond those same old boring ham and cheese or chicken salad sandwiches. Make sure to check back for delicious seafood part recipes.



Party Sandwich Recipes


Sandwiches are the perfect small dish for an important day with a lot of guests. Hand held, bite-sized food you can make for tea parties, dinner or brunch. Here are 3 awesome sandwich recipes for any special occasion.


Smoked Salmon Sandwiches


Smoked salmon

Smoked salmon is the ideal sandwich for a brunch because it is tasty, but still connected with bagels and lox. This recipe takes a spin on the traditional smoked salmon bagel.



– One pack of smoked salmon
– One loaf of thinly sliced bread (I used pumpernickel)
– One tub cream cheese
– One peeled and thinly sliced cucumber
– Two stalks of finely diced green onion


With the loaf of bread,cut it from corner to corner to make tiny triangles or if preferred you can cut into squares. Take a small bowl and mix together the green onion and cream cheese. Next get two slices of bread and spread your cream cheese blend as desired on both sides. Now add a layer of cucumber slices and of smoked salmon. Repeat the steps until you make however many sandwiches you need. Also toothpicks may be needed if not enough of the cream cheese mix is used on the sandwiches. They will help hold them together.


Gourmand Griddled Cheese

This sandwich is a hit with both grown ups and kids. If you do not care for spice, then leave out sriracha hot sauce. However it makes the perfect spicy choice for your buffet table.


Party Sandwich Recipes-Gourmand Griddled Cheese
Party Sandwich Recipes-Gourmand Griddled Cheese



– One loaf of thinly sliced bread (I find sourdough to work best)
– Three seeded, peeled and finely sliced avocados
– One block of thinly chopped sharp cheddar
– Mayo
– Sriracha
– Salt and pepper to taste


Grab the sourdough bread loaf and cut off its crust. Now with two pieces of bread take one and spread a layer of mayo and on the other drizzle some sriracha (if you’re using it). Then layer on some avocado and cheese, and pepper and salt, and put your sandwich together. Roast it with a grill, pan, or griddle until nice and crispy, with the cheese softened. Cut as desired, I like it in fourths and serve!





Chocolate Banana Dessert Paninis

Lastly is a great dessert sandwich to please your visitors. It is never a bad idea to have something sweet to compliment your other food. I actually even like to make these just for myself at home.

– One thinly sliced loaf of Brioche

Just like the cheese sandwich recipe above, grab your two pieces of bread. Spread nutella on both pieces. Then layer with the bananas and put on the griddle until the bread is a bit brown and crisp. Cut them from corner to corner and serve them warm. Mmmm enjoy!

Shrimp and Grits Recipe


You will love this fast and easy seafood recipe will wow your family as a weeknight meal or impress guests at a dinner party.


Shrimp and Grits Recipe


Shrimp and Grits Recipe


When some people hear the words “Shrimp and Grits” they may be left scratching their heads while others are rubbing their bellies! Shrimp and grits is just one of my many favorite classic southern dishes. The great thing about it is that it really is an “anytime” dish. It makes for a delicious breakfast or satisfying supper. It is so fantastic I think everyone should know all about it. So here is a quick history fact for you.

Shrimp and grits got it’s start as a seasonal dish for fisherman. it consisted of the shrimp being cooked in  a bacon grease and served over creamy, delicious grits down in the Low Country where the dish was also known as “breakfast shrimp.” This simple seafood breakfast meal became an iconic Southern dish after Craig Claiborne (a great American resturant critic) wrote about it in the New York Times in 1985. Now that we know a little more about it, let’s roll up our sleeves and get started, you’ll thank me later.

What you need:

3 cups of chicken broth
1 cup of uncooked grits (quick cooking)
1/2 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of  freshly ground pepper
2 Tbsp of butter
2 cups of shredded Cheddar
6 slices of chopped bacon
2lbs of med shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1 Tbsp of lemon juice
2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp of chopped parsley
6 chopped green onions
2 minced garlic cloves

Cooking Instructions:

Bring your chicken broth to a boil over a med high heat. Then stir in the grits. Keep cooking while occasionally stirring for about  5-7 min or until it is thickened. Then take it off the heat and stir in the salt, pepper and butter. Set aside but keep warm.
Next, you’ll cook your bacon in a large sized non-stick skillet on a med high heat for 3 min or until the bacon is crisp. Then, remove the bacon from skillet. Cook the shrimp in the same with the same heat for another 3 min or until they are almost pink. You will want to stir them occasionally. Add your lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, onions and parsely and cook that for 3 min. Stir in your bacon. Then
spoon your grits onto shallow bowls or on plates, top with the shrimp mixture and serve immediately.
