Nothing beats fresh seafood in the summer. The variety, flavor, and ease of preparation make it the ideal choice for family meals. There’s no more refreshing time to eat seafood than when days are long, the sun is hot, and the summer breeze is warm.
Not everyone loves seafood, of course, but everyone loves something about the summer. To get you started, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite seafood dinner ideas, from appetizers to desserts.
Lobster rolls are the perfect summer seafood dinner idea. These sustainable and delicious sandwiches are the perfect meal for a hot summer day that can be served as a main course or as an appetizer.
They’re easy to make and can be served with a variety of sides. Lobster rolls can be made with either fresh or frozen lobster, and are served on a toasted bun.
If you’re looking for delicious fish ideas that are sure to please, look no further than the lobster roll!
These shrimp skewers are easy to make and can be grilled or baked. You can marinate the shrimp in whatever you like- BBQ sauce, Italian dressing, or some salt, pepper, and garlic. Thread shrimp onto skewers, and grill or bake until cooked through.
You can add other seafood to the skewers, like scallops or fish.
They’re light and airy and full of fresh seafood flavor. We like to make them with lump crab meat, and pan-fry them until they’re crispy on the outside and cooked through. Serve them with a simple green salad and a squeeze of lemon for a perfect summer meal.
Whether you’re looking for a light and healthy dinner option or an indulgent seafood feast, crab cakes as well as stone crab claws, are always a good choice. This summer, try out some new crab cake recipes and enjoy the best of what the season has to offer.

Salmon salad is a great summer seafood dinner menu. This salad is light and refreshing, perfect for a summer evening.
Salmon is a good source of protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and salad greens are a good source of vitamins and minerals. This salad is also a good source of fiber and antioxidants.
And, since it’s salad, it’s a lighter meal option that won’t weigh you down in the summer heat. For a simple salmon salad, mix together: a can of wild-caught salmon, diced celery, diced red onion, diced cucumber, and a simple dressing of olive oil and lemon juice—season with salt and pepper to taste.
This salad is best enjoyed cold, so refrigerate for a few hours before serving.
Tuna burgers are easy to make and can be cooked on the grill or in the oven. They are a healthy alternative to traditional beef burgers and are packed with protein and omega-3 fatty acids.
Serve tuna burgers on whole wheat buns with lettuce, tomato, and avocado, and enjoy a delicious and nutritious meal.
