When I was a kid, my favorite summer event was a mid-August giant lobster and steamer extravaganza. My family would get together with friends, usually about 20 of us, and set up long tables on the porch covered in newspaper for the big meal. There was plenty of melted butter for the seafood and crunchy loaves of bread to sop up any extra juices.
Summer in New England is all about great seafood. This year I've been to Cape Cod for fried shrimp and clams and Maine for exquisite lobsters straight out of the "pound." But there's no need to travel for these kinds of goodies. It's easy to make fabulous summer seafood recipes at home. And luckily it's simple to make them healthier and just as delicious.
Some of my other seafood favorites that we've made healthier include:
