Beer Battered Crab Poppers with Avocado Dipping Sauce

This Avocado Dipping Sauce takes just five minutes, and it’s a refreshing complement to our Beer Battered Crab Poppers. With a zesty kick from lime and green pepper hot sauce, it perfectly complements the delicate and delicious wild-caught crab, oozy cheese, and spicy jalapeño peppers. So good you’ll crave it for days.

Bang Bang Shrimp Sliders

These Bang Bang Shrimp Sliders are a delightful finger food because they’re filling, flavorful, and easy to eat while socializing. The trick to keeping these sliders finger-food-sized is to serve them on tiny buns with just a couple of shrimp. They’re so tasty you may want to keep them all to yourself!

Shrimp Wonton Cups

Shrimp Wonton Cups don’t need to be a complicated appetizer. Start with snackable SeaPak Popcorn Shrimp and a quick homemade slaw. Spoon your coleslaw into crunchy, baked wonton wrappers and top with a shrimp or two. With a sweet soy zing, they’ll disappear in no time.

Mini Shrimp Tacos

Mini Shrimp Tacos combine succulent coconut shrimp with tangy pomegranate and citrus, red onion, and lime. The sauces have a hint of heat from jalapeños and Sriracha, and the creamy orange marmalade sauce is loaded with flavor. They’re so delicious you’ll find yourself skipping the taco truck and heading straight for the frozen food aisle.

Mini Shrimp Scampi and Spinach Quiches

Buttery, frozen phyllo dough makes this recipe for Mini Shrimp Scampi and Spinach Quiches surprisingly easy. They’re bite-sized, delicious little finger foods packed with traditional lemon and garlic scampi flavors. These mini quiche bites are so buttery you won’t even realize you’re also eating spinach.

Salmon Burger Summer Rolls

Alaskan Salmon Burgers are the best-kept secret for speedy Salmon Burger Summer Rolls. In addition to hand-cut, wild-caught Alaskan pink salmon, these spring rolls include fresh fruits and veggies for some crunch. Mango, red pepper, and cucumber add color and major flavor. No one will ever guess how easy these were. We won’t tell.

Firecracker Clam Strips

Firecracker Clam Strips are basically effortless and fun to munch on. Serve these Thai-inspired clam strips in mini pots or small bowls. For a less-messy presentation, serve the sauce on the side with a spoon so people can dish out what they want.

Crab Cakes with Roasted Red Bell Pepper Garlic Aioli

This seafood finger food is ideal if you’re in a hurry. Prep time is just around 2 minutes (or the time it takes to throw roasted red peppers and aioli sauce into a food processor). Pop our Maryland Style Crab Cakes in the oven, and your prep is mercifully over. Plus, the aioli sauce comes with the crab cakes, so you don’t even need to worry about an extra trip to the grocery store to bring these Crab Cakes with Roasted Red Bell Pepper Garlic Aioli right to your table.

Fried Shrimp Mac and Cheese Bites

You don’t need to make mac-and-cheese from scratch for these golden, crunchy Fried Shrimp Mac and Cheese Bites. Prep the mac-and-cheese a day before (or use leftovers, no judgment)—it’ll make it easier to roll into balls. They’re delicious dipped in marinara sauce, honey mustard, or Sriracha mayo. Kids love them, too…so watch your kids if they’re sneaky.

Butterfly Shrimp Bruschetta

Butterfly Shrimp Bruschetta starts with a hearty, rustic baguette sliced thick enough to top with traditional Italian ingredients and crispy shrimp. This recipe has a tangy, bright flavor from the tomatoes, and shrimp adds a briny sweetness. Serve this seafood appetizer on its own, or drizzle with a little balsamic to really chef it up.

BBQ Shrimp Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers

Bacon, SeaPak Shrimp Scampi, jalapeños, and cheddar? Yes, please! These BBQ Shrimp Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers require a grill, so they’re the perfect seafood bite for a summer barbeque. The smokey grill makes sweet, succulent shrimp scampi and cheese taste even more delectable. Dip them in ranch or eat them plain.


Technically, SeaPak Calamari isn’t a recipe because you don’t actually have to make anything. Still, serving restaurant-quality, wild-caught calamari will surely impress all the seafood fans. SeaPak Calamari even includes a delicious Tomato Romano Sauce. It’s like having a chef in a box…without the salary, ego, or shouting.

Coconut Shrimp Pot Stickers

These tasty little dumplings combine crispy Coconut Shrimp with garden-fresh scallions and a sweet-and-spicy orange marmalade sauce. Their crunchy wrappers and juicy filling make them ultra-tasty, and they can be assembled the night before—just be sure to refrigerate them. You’ll want to eat these Coconut Shrimp Pot Stickers when they’re still hot—we bet they’ll be gone before they have the chance to cool off.

Everything Bagel Sliders

We took the Everything Bagel spice blend and put it in our crispy Butterfly Shrimp breading for an incredible bite. Combined with cream cheese chive slaw, these Everything Bagel Sliders have a delicious crunch and burst of seasoning to boot.

Merry Shrimp Martinis

Who wants a martini when you can have a massive glass of shrimp instead? Tomatoes, lemon zest, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce give our Shrimp Scampi a fiery kick. Served along with a garlicky crostini, these shrimp martinis are a handheld treat that look elegant and taste fabulous. Cheers to a seafood twist on a classic drink!

Tempura Shrimp Sticks with Warm Apricot Dipping Sauce

SeaPak’s oven-crispy Tempura Shrimp are already perfectly battered, so this recipe requires very little prep work. Skewer juicy Tempura Shrimp with bamboo sticks and serve with a tangy apricot sauce for dipping. If you’re serving right away, drizzle warm sauce across them so everyone can grab and go. Don’t be shocked if people grab an entire handful—these Tempura Shrimp Sticks are really, really good.

Shrimp Con Queso

Rich, creamy queso may not be the most obvious dipping sauce for Butterfly Shrimp, but it is a delectable combination. The batter is light and tasty, and because they are tail-on, they’re perfect for a party snack. Who doesn’t love queso?
