Fall Seafood Series

Hot summer nights have come to a close and we’re celebrating Fall Fishes! Instead of slurping ice-cold oysters and little necks to beat the heat, we’ve teamed up with Dave’s to bring you cozy comfort fishes to share with friends and family around fall fires, on movie nights, and for holiday celebrations. Rhode Island’s seafood economy doesn’t stop when the nights get cooler. Our fishermen are dedicated to supplying fresh and local catches all year-round.

As holidays approach, varying cultures celebrate seafood differently, whether its indulging in the Feast of the Seven Fishes, preparing Christmas Eve Lutefisk, hogging the crab dip on New Years’ Eve, enjoying Bacalao a la Vizcaína, or enjoying new traditions.

This book was created to celebrate the abundance of fall species available at your local seafood markets. Each recipe is meant to be enjoyed in good company, while having the ability to be modified based on preference or occasion, and applied to species that are in season.

As the holidays approach, use the RI Local Seafood Finder to locate seafood venues near you where you can source fresh fish and shellfish! Everyone loves Thanksgiving turkey, but seafood is an alternate choice that is equally as delicious and readily available.
