Auntie Monica’s Seafood Mac and Cheese
Loaded with fresh shrimp, crab, and lobster and layered with a rich mixture of cheeses, this macaroni and cheese gets an extra boost of spice from liquid shrimp-and-crab boil. The boil seasoning lends its long-cooked flavor to the casserole without overcooking the delicate seafood. This recipe comes from Monica Williams, chef Kia Damon's auntie and former drill instructor for the United States Marine Corps.
This rule-breaking pasta from chef Joshua McFadden of Ava Gene’s in Portland, Oregon, will completely change your mind about dairy and seafood. The deeply sweet, creamy flavor of the anise-laced sauce perfectly compliments the brininess of the mussels. Slideshow: More Mussels Recipes
