Holiday appetizers with seafood

Celebrations call for seafood! Get family and friends together and pull out all the stops featuring holiday apps like fresh oysters or seared scallops for something deliciously different. The best part? Elegance doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Shuck Your Own Oysters

Whether you’re hosting a romantic New Year’s Eve for two or gathering family for the countdown, we offer fresh oysters in our Seafood Dept. with various flavour profiles. We have an oyster for every palate, from sweet and salty to delicately citrusy. Not sure where to start? Check out our oyster shucking 101 tutorial to guide you through the process. Serve with a mango hot sauce to spice things up and enjoy the fireworks.

Quick and Easy Scallops

Fabulous doesn’t have to mean difficult or time-consuming. Take our Chorizo & Scallop Bites with Lemon-Wasabi Yogurt, for example. Ready in 15 minutes, they’re easy, elegant, and full of flavour. Just sear, plate, and serve.

Halibut’s many virtues include the fact that it stays tender (even if overcooked!), it suits almost any method of cooking, and it’s a premium whitefish with a flaky, firm texture that pairs well with various flavours and spices. Give this versatile Roasted Halibut with Capers, Olives & Tomatoes a go. Just 25 minutes and dinner’s done!

Steamed Lobster

What could be simpler and more delicious than a whole steamed lobster with a French-style gribiche sauce? Take it easy and let us do the work. Our Seafood Dept. will steam the lobsters for you (where available), so all you have to do is make the sauce and enjoy your celebratory dinner.
