5 Seafood Recipes You Can Make At Home + Takeout Options from Miami Seafood Restaurants

During this time of social distancing and shelter-in-place orders in Miami Beach, Miami-Dade County, and across the world right now, we hope that as you’re reading this you and your families are safe and in good health. Just because we’re staying indoors doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy our favorite South Florida seafood dishes from our favorite Miami seafood restaurants, right? Right! 

Many Miami seafood restaurant partners of the annual South Beach Seafood Festival offer curbside and takeout food and beverage menus. (Say helloooo to frozen margaritas to-go from one of our favorites: Bodega Taqueria!) We should all do as much as possible to support these restaurants during this time and shop local at every chance. And hey, if downing some margs is what’s required, count us in.

Still, we understand that it may not be possible to order takeout every day of the week. Queue getting creative in your own kitchen! No, you don’t have to don a chef’s hat (but you can if you want). After all, there’s nothing like a homemade meal to bring comfort during these unnerving times. 

It doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, here are seven easy-to-make seafood recipes to share with your family, and local Miami seafood restaurants that are offering similar dishes for your convenience to-go: .

Recipes and Take-Out Options Below

 

  1. Mahi Fish Tacos – Taco Tuesday just got easier with this Mahi fish taco recipe.

    Local Carry Out Option: Order the Pescado Tacos online from Bodega Taqueria

  2. Poke Bowls – We’re still dreaming of the salmon poke bowl Dragonfly Izakaya & Fish Market brought to last year’s South Beach Seafood Festival – so fire! Want to try your hand at a homemade poke bowl? We liked this recipe!

    Local Carry Out Option: Dragonfly Izakay & Fish Market, build your own poke bowl on the lunch menu.

  3. Paella – We’ll forever remember last year’s VIP tasting restaurants. Old Lisbon, a seafood restaurant staple in Miami, brought an unforgettable paella and it was hard not to go back for seconds and thirds!
    Feeling adventurous? Here’s a beginner paella recipe to try at home.

    Local Carry Out Option:
    If you want the good stuff, you know where to go. Old Lisbon is doing takeout orders from 12-9pm, Friday – Sunday.

  4. Crab Cakes – We found this recipe titled “How to Make Crab Cakes Better Than a Fancy Restaurant”. (Excuuuse me, no one is better than Joe’s). Still, this is a good starter recipe if you’re trying to recreate the magic.

    Local Carry Out Option: It’s safe to say, every menu item at Joe’s Stone Crab is a classic. And not just their iconic stone crab claw options, the crab cakes are amazing as well. Online orders are currently being accepted.

  5. Coconut Shrimp – At last year’s South Beach Seafood Festival VIP Chef Showdown, Poseidon brought their A-game with their take on coconut shrimp wrapped in cotton candy! What’s not to love about a good old fashioned coconut shrimp recipe? Try this one.

    Local Carry Out Option:
    Poseidon, a Greek Seafood Restaurant in Miami Beach, may not have their fantastical Chef Showdown creation available, but they do have a Grilled Wild Shrimps dish, and they’re open for takeout! The dish is prepared as “simply grilled, fava, hearts of artichoke, extra virgin olive oil.” DELICIOUS! 
The Seafood Festival is Still On Schedule!

The seafood festival is still on schedule! We hope to see everyone in good health in October at the 2020 South Beach Seafood Festival. Until then, please be sure to stay safe, and shop local as often as you can from the very best Miami seafood restaurants.
