This Garlic Butter Seafood Boil contains fresh shrimp, lobster, clams, crab, potatoes, corn and sausage, all boiled in a flavorful broth. An impressive meal in one pot that’s perfect for feeding a crowd! Fresh seafood never fails to

Living in Houston for so many years, I realized how big of a deal crawfish season is!  Any and every chance Houstonians get, they have a crawfish boil, or attend a crawfish boil.

There is something so magical about the opportunity to fellowship around a huge pot of seafood, a cold beverage, and good friends or family! Well this seafood boil provides that same opportunity!

Hands down the best seafood garlic butter sauce I’ve made and tried! I wish I had a picture of it but it looked so good that I instantly had to dig in! Will definitely be using again when I’m in the mood for snow crab legs which is usually once a month! A must try for all my seafood lovers out there!

Crab legs are just as amazing as crawfish, (and in my opinion, better)! This post isn't to debate that theory though. One of the best parts about seafood is that it takes on the flavors of spices that are used.

Zucchini Garlic Bites

No comments

Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Have you ever tried something so delicious you can barely stand it…and something that you’re even more shocked that you actually made. This is one of those recipes.

This tasty zucchini garlic bites recipe combines shredded zucchini with garlic, Parmesan cheese, fresh herbs, and is served with a marinara dipping sauce for an Italian inspired twist.

Ah, zucchini…Its the crop that just keeps on giving throughout the growing season. This recipe is one more way to transform it into a scrumptious bite that can be served as an appetizer, side dish, or even a kid’s meal.

This time of year has the kitchen busy with preserving the harvest. Right now, the counters are filled with tomatoes and zucchini harvested from the garden. Both are in heavy rotation as I turn the ripe tomatoes into sauce or salsa, and the zucchini into zucchini lasagna, zucchini bread, or preserve for later. Once the counter is cleared, I have only a short moment of satisfaction before it begins filling up once again with newly picked fruit.

With football season approaching, I wanted to add something different to our weekly finger food spread. Since weekends spent preserving the harvest usually stretches well into fall, it had to be something tasty but easy to throw together.

Faced with a counter full of newly harvested zucchini, and the aroma of tomato sauce filling the kitchen as it simmered on the stove, it was then that I remembered one of those cooking videos on Facebook. It was some sort of shredded zucchini combination to resemble tater tots. I wanted to try something similar but with an Italian inspired twist.To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:

Zucchini Garlic Bites


  • 1 cup zucchini grated and drained well

  • 1 egg

  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs

  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated fine

  • 1 clove garlic grated fine

  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives chopped

  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped

  • 1 teaspoon fresh basil chopped

  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano chopped

  • pinch of salt and pepper

  • tomato sauce for dipping 


  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil or non-stick spray. Set aside.
  2. Use a box grater to grate the zucchini into a clean towel. Roll up the towel and twist to wring out the moisture. Grate the garlic using the small holes on the box grater.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well.
  4. Shape a tablespoon of the mixture into your hands, pat into small balls, and place on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes in the preheated oven until golden. Serve warm with marinara sauce. Recipe makes about 16 bites.

  • 4 sticks Butter, unsalted
  • ¼ cup Olive oil
  • 1 whole Onion, diced
  • 3 tablespoons Garlic, diced

  • 3 tablespoons Paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon pepper seasoning, (optional depending on fresh lemon juice)
  • 1-2 dashes Tobasco sauce



  1. Fill up a large stock pot with water, leaving enough room at the top to add the seafood. Add old bay seasoning, lemon, and bay leaves. Bring to a light boil.
  2. Place the corn and red potatoes into the seasoned water. Boil for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the crab legs and sausage . Cover with a lid and boil for an additional 15 minutes.
  4. Add the shrimp. Boil for 5 minutes (shrimp will turn pink, do not overcook).

  6. Pour that delicious garlic butter sauce all over, and/or reserve some sauce on the side to dip the seafood in (recipe below).


  1. Melt one stick of butter and olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add onions and sauté until they become translucent.
  2. Add Garlic and saute for 30 seconds, stirring constantly so garlic doesn't burn. Add juice of the lemon, and all the seasonings. Adjust cayenne and red pepper to your level of spiciness.
  3. Add remaining 3 sticks of butter. Simmer until butter is melted, stir constantly.
  4. If using chicken broth, gently stir it into the mixture now. Pour over your favorite seafood and/or reserve some for dipping.
  5. Enjoy!


  • Chicken broth is used to "cut" the sauce. It does not take away from the flavor in any way. In fact- it's great to add broth if trying to create more sauce, or pour directly over your seafood boil.
  • Sauce can also be used for dipping.

This is the only Lobster tails recipe you’ll ever need and it’s surprisingly easy! The broiled lobster meat is crazy tender, juicy and each bite is tantalizingly flavorful, especially after dipping into the warm garlic lemon butter.

  • Skill Level : Easy/Medium
  • Cost to Make : Varies by Season
  • Servings : 4 lobster tails


4 lobster tails 5 to 6 oz each1 Tbsp fresh parsley very finely chopped, plus more for garnish2 garlic cloves pressed1 tsp dijon mustard1/4 tsp salt1/8 tsp black pepper1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice4 Tbsp unsalted butter divided


How to Prepare/Butterfly Lobster Tails:

  1. Use kitchen scissors to cut through the top shell of the lobster tail, stopping at the base of the tail and snipping through the top portion of the meat as you go.
  2. Flip the tail over to the back see-through side and crack the ribs in the center. This will help open the shell.
  3. Open the shell carefully using thumbs and fingers and loosen meat from the shell (remove vein if present). Lift the meat from the shell, keeping it attached at the base. Press the shell together and set the lobster meat over the top. Most of the lobster meat should be sitting on top of the shell.

How to Make Broiled Lobster Tails:

  1. Place rack in center of oven so the meaty tops of your lobster tails will be at least 6 inches from the top heating element. Preheat oven to broil on high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together marinade ingredients: 1 Tbsp parsley, 2 garlic cloves, 1 tsp dijon, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper, 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil and 1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice.
  3. Place butterflied Lobster Tails into a 9×13 or 8×12 roasting pan. Divide marinade evenly over the tops of each lobster tail and dot each tail all over with 1/2 Tbsp of butter cut into smaller pieces.
  4. Broil lobster tails on high heat 10-11 min (or according to the lobster tail size – see chart). When done, lobster meat should be opaque and white in the center and register 145˚F on an instant read thermometer. Transfer to serving platter and garnish with parsley if desired.
  5. To make the Garlic Lemon Butter: drain drippings from the roasting pan into a small saucepan and combine with remaining 2 Tbsp butter, bring to a simmer and remove from heat. Pour over lobster tails or divide into ramekins and use as dipping sauce.

Recipe Notes!Broiling Times for Lobster Tails:

  1. Smaller (3 to 4 oz) lobster tail 6 to 8 minutes

  3. Larger (7 to 9 oz) lobsters tail 12-15 minutes (with rack in middle of oven)
  4. Broil lobster meat until opaque and white in center, or 145˚F.
