Favorite Seafood Recipes - What's Yours?

best seafood recipes

Do you have any favorite seafood recipes? I found mine on the Internet. I absolutely love The Old Spaghetti Factory (I hope you're lucky enough to live near one!). The food is absolutely to die for! Anyway, they have a clam sauce that is so good that I order it every time I go. In fact, I don't think I've ever had their red sauce! haha. 

So, I came across a great seafood recipe on the `Net for The Old Spaghetti Factory's Spaghetti with Clam Sauce. I don't if this is the actual recipe. Regardless, I printed it out and my wife made it up. It is actually so doggoned close to the real thing, it's scary! Now, I have to have it at least once a month, otherwise I go through withdrawals! hehe. 

Here it is for you to enjoy:

Old Spaghetti Factory Original Clam Sauce

Serving Size : 6

3 ounces butter
2 cloves garlic -- finely chopped
1/2 medium onion -- finely chopped
3 stalks celery -- finely chopped
3 tablespoons flour
2 six oz cans of clams -- chopped
1 quart half and half
1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
1 teaspoon salt

Combine butter, garlic, onion and celery in a saucepan. Braise over medium-low heat until tender but not brown. Add the flour, and mix to make a roux. Drain clams, reserving juice. In a separate saucepan, combine clam juice, half-and-half, thyme and salt. Heat until just below boiling. Add to roux, and cook until sauce thickens. Add clams, stirring gently to mix through out the sauce. Serve over noodles.

This next one isn't one of my favorite seafood recipes, but if you've ever been to Red Lobster, you know exactly why I've included it here. It's a stretch but your tummy will thank me for it! This is the Red Lobster Biscuit Recipe. These light and fluffy biscuits are full of garlic and cheddar goodness and oh-so yummy!

Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits Recipe

2 ½ cups Bisquick baking mix
¾ cup cold whole milk
4 tablespoons cold butter (1/2 stick)
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese

Brush on Top:

2 tablespoons butter, melted
¼ teaspoon dried parsley flakes
½ teaspoon garlic powder
pinch salt


1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

2. Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter or a large fork. You don't want to mix too thoroughly. There should be small chunks of butter in there that are about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, milk, and ¼ teaspoon garlic. Mix by hand until combined, but don't over mix.

3. Drop approximately ¼-cup portions of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop.

4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.

5. When you take the biscuits out of the oven, melt 2 tablespoons butter is a small bowl in your microwave. Stir in ½ teaspoon garlic powder and the dried parsley flakes. Use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Use up all of the butter. Makes one dozen biscuits.

Just as a side note, I love to try and find recipes that come from my favorite places to eat out or are at least pretty darned close. It's sort of like a treasure hunt for me. If I can make the same goodies at home without the prices that go along with them, I'm all for it. If you like doing that, too, I know of a great book for you. It's called the Copycat Cookbook and has a ton of recipes from some of the best restaurants around.
