Weeknight Meal Planner: Beach Vacation

If cooking super-fresh seafood is half the reason you head to the beach, check out our selection of five easy weeknight seafood meals and sides.
  1. 1
    Coconut Shrimp with Pineapple Salsa
    Serve homemade coconut-crusted shrimp with a sweet-and-spicy pineapple salsa for a lightened seafood dinner that's out of this world.
  2. 2
    Blackened Grouper
    This blackened grouper recipe has some heat but the lime juice adds a refreshing zest. Be careful when adding the fish to the pan, as the butter and oil may splatter.
  3. 3
    Louisiana Deviled Crab Cakes With Hot Peppered Sour Cream
    Ground red pepper adds the "devil" to these crab cakes. If you want a milder flavor, omit the pepper in both the crab cakes and the sour cream mixture.
  4. 4
    Fried Fish Sandwiches
    This superb fried fish sandwich is inspired by the Black Grouper Sandwich served at Dockside Dave's in St. Pete Beach, Florida.
  5. 5
    Oysters with Pink Peppercorn Mignonette
    A simple mignonette dressing is the perfect accent to fresh oysters on the half shell.
  6. B
    Key Lime Pie
    Nothing beats a good key lime pie, and our readers have given this recipe 5 stars. It's a lighter version due to the fat-free sweetened condensed milk and frozen reduced-calorie whipped topping, but it tastes just as rich and fresh. You'll never know the difference.
