3. Seafood Paella
Seafood paella has traveled from its native home in Valencia, Spain, to every corner of the world; and has become fully adopted into the US seafood repertoire.
This delicious rice dish is always the star of the show and is the perfect dish for large dinner parties or groups. Although generally prepared in a special “paellera” pan, any wide bottom pan will work when cooking up all the ingredients. The great thing about this seafood dish is you can have a little fun with it by adding whatever seafood you like, although we recommend our seafood paella mix.

3. Quick Pasta with Whole Mussels in Shell
Although pasta dishes are generally associated with Europe and Italy, they have conquered the globe thanks to pasta’s versatility. As a result, pasta is one of the most commonly consumed dishes. So mix it with one of our favorite seafood — mussels — and you have a winning combination.
This quick dish is super simple and delicious. All you need to do is saute your garlic and shallots, add your mussels and white wine and then serve over a plate of fresh pasta. Don’t believe a seafood dish can be that simple? Check out our recipe.
4. Pan-Seared Scallops in Butter Sauce
Scallops are one of the most popular seafoods found on restaurant menus. These delicious mollusks are amazing as a starter or a main, with a range of sides. However, the mouthwatering recipe we have selected is pan-seared scallops in butter sauce.
This fun seafood recipe requires premium quality scallops, butter, lemon juice, and seasoning, and that is it. It’s simple, just cook up your scallops along with the butter and seasonings using a skillet, and prepare for a true taste sensation.

The best thing about these skewers is you can order your shrimp and scallop skewers pre-prepared at PanaPesca USA. That means all you have to do is wrap in bacon and grill to your liking. This is easily one of our favorite fun seafood recipes.
