    This Sunday, leave your rivalries on the field and unite in the kitchen. (Time out: we’re going to cram as many football puns into this 3-sentence intro as possible. We like big punts and we cannot lie).

    So here’s the game plan for game day: chips and salsa are out of bounds because you can do better. Huddle around your monthly subscription of fresh, delicious seafood, because we’ve whipped up a menu of delicious crowd-pleasers, perfect for adults and kids alike. The kicker? These dishes are easy, which means they won’t distract you from the reason you’re all there. Happy eating!

    Game Day Salmon Puffs

    Not only are these football-shaped mini salmon Wellingtons adorable, they’re delicious and on-theme. Lean into the kitsch factor for Game Day, but change the shape of these Puffs to suit any party, elegant or not. For full effect, we recommend all-butter puff pastry. If you can’t find any, most supermarkets carry commercial puff pastry, a good shortening-based alternative. 

    Crispy Coconut-Crusted Fish Fingers with Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce

    This one goes out to the adults who never outgrew finger food. Although these fish fingers have all the familiar comforts of your favorite childhood cuisine (panko-crusted crispy outside, flaky fish inside), they’re sophisticated enough for all to enjoy, thanks to a truly addictive sweet and spicy dipping sauce. 

    Hot Honey Salmon Bites

    Breaded, fried, and tossed in a spicy honey glaze, these Hot Honey Salmon Bites are our answer to the chicken nugget – and they might even be better. The best part? These can be breaded and frozen ahead to avoid stress ahead of the big game.

    Spicy Fish Taco Nachos with Lime Crema

    For an easy crowd-pleaser, these Spicy Fish Taco Nachos with Lime Crema are super easy. And refills are easy, perfect for when the game’s a nail biter and you want to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible.

    Super Crispy Fried Fish Fingers with Easy Homemade Tartar Sauce

    As if we haven’t given you enough fried food, these delicious Crispy Fried Fish Fingers with Easy Homemade Tartar Sauce are a classic. And if you’re looking for a healthier alternative, our Oven Fried Fish and Chips with Green Beans and Dijon Remoulade are just as good, if less caloric.
