Ringing in 2020 is shaping up to be an incredible time. And whether you’re hosting a New Year’s Eve party this year or you’re attending one, there’s a chance you may be responsible for some sort of dish to prepare. Just in case you’re struggling to come up with an idea of what you can make, we decided to put together a quick list of our three favorite seafood appetizers that are a perfect New Year’s Eve treat for anyone who enjoys seafood.
1. Shrimp Cocktail
It’s safe to say that shrimp cocktail is atop many people’s list as it is a traditional mainstay on the New Year’s Eve menu. A simple yet incredibly satisfying appetizer, shrimp cocktail is a perfect finger food that can be easily consumed with one hand while enjoying a beverage in the other.
2. Bacon-Wrapped Pineapple Shrimp
We’re two for two with shrimp appetizers, and it’s easy to understand why. Shrimp is one of the most popular seafood items, it tastes great both warm and cold, and it’s easy to eat with your hand. This sweet and salty treat is simple to make – just wrap shrimp in bacon and pineapple, and then sauté until the bacon reaches your preferred crispiness. Cool as desired before serving.
3. Bacon-Wrapped Scallops
The first theme was shrimp, and now the second theme of this list is bacon. Why? Because everyone loves bacon! Not only are bacon-wrapped scallops a mouthwatering treat, but they too are a perfect finger food. Simply wrap the scallops in bacon and sauté until the bacon is crispy.
