Huddle Up, Chefs! Super Bowl Appetizers That are Sure to Score
Steel yourself for the 2011 Super Bowl with appetizers that Pack a lot of punch. Whether you’re hosting a party or heading to a friend’s house, arming yourself with a tried-and-true Crown Prince Seafood appetizer is a foolproof strategy.
Not sure what makes a good Super Bowl appetizer? The Crown Prince team has lovingly developed and taste-tested dozens of seafood recipes over the years. Nothing says “game time” like dip and finger food, so here are a few of our favorites.
Seafood Dip Appetizers
Spinach, Shrimp and Cheese Dip – Cream cheese is the automatic first down of pre-game snacks. This dip combines indulgent cream cheese and a bit of mayo with refreshing spinach, Crab Meat and Tiny Shrimp. Red peppers and an Italian cheese blend add an extra layer of flavor.
Crab and Citrus Salsa – This dip is easier than a touchdown from the one-yard line and as refreshing as an interception. The cool flavors of white crab meat, tomato and cucumber are perfectly balanced with the zest of fresh chili and the tang of orange and lime.
Seafood Finger Food
Jalapeños Stuffed with Tuna – This recipe will upstage any half-time show. Simple yet spectacular, it combines the kick of jalapeño, the indulgence of two different cheeses, and the joy of all things deep-fried.
Bacon Wrapped Crab Stuffed Shrimp – If cream cheese is the automatic first down of dips, then bacon is the MVP of finger food. This dish takes a little prep time to execute, but the result is well worth it. Fresh shrimp are stuffed with a flavorful blend of aromatic veggies, white crab meat, bread crumbs and herbed cream cheese, then wrapped in bacon and baked to perfection.
No matter who you’re rooting for, you deserve to eat well in the process. We’re confident you’ll look more kindly on our shameless puns after you taste one of these delicious appetizers. Enjoy, and may the best team win!
