I am a fan of BlueWater Seafoods.  I love different types of fish and it is usually quick and easy to make.  It is great for people with kids and whose families are on the go like mine.  BlueWater has a website with lots of recipes on their website from appetizers to main courses.  If you want some different ideas for when you are the host, this may be for you.  I did not know they had recipes on their website before, and now I will have to try them.  Here are a couple of different ideas for recipes: 

Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp Nachos

Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp Nachos 

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Servings: 3

Total Time: 25 minutes


1 package BlueWater Breaded Butterfly Shrimp Temptations

1 envelope package taco seasoning

2 TBSP chopped red onion

2 TBSP Monterey Jack cheese

3 TBSP salsa

2 TBSP sour cream

3 TBSP guacamole

2 TBSP canned or jarred chopped jalapeño


Toss frozen shrimp with the taco seasoning. Tap and shake off excess seasoning and place shrimp on a shallow metal baking pan lined with aluminum foil. Bake the shrimp according to the packaging, turning shrimp after 7 minutes of cooking. Remove shrimp from oven and top with the remaining ingredients.

Here is also another recipe I would love to try: 

Shrimp Quesadilla

Shrimp Quesadilla 

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Servings: 2

Total Time: 18 minutes


1 package BlueWater Popcorn Shrimp

4 – 7 1/2 inch Wraps

4 Tbsp olive oil

1 cup Cocktail Sauce

Juice of one lime

6 Tsp of Tequila (optional)


Cook BlueWater Popcorn Shrimp according to the package directions. Pour two tablespoons of olive oil into a skillet on medium-high heat for one minute. Place one wrap into skillet and pour 1/2 cup cheddar cheese onto wrap. Place half of Popcorn Shrimp onto cheese and top with another wrap. Cook for a couple of minutes until browned. Flip and cook other side until browned. Repeat process with second quesadilla. Cut each quesadilla into eight wedges. Mix cocktail sauce, lime juice and tequila. Top each wedge with a dollop of Tequila lime sauce.

If you want a main course, there are many different recipes to choose from as well.  Instead of having a traditional turkey for Christmas dinner, consider having one of these recipes:
