Seattle Summer Recipes Anytime

Today is the first time in a long time that it doesn’t really feel like summer in the Bay Area. All week, the forecast has been telling me that today was going to be filled with showers and a bit of lightning so we’re indoors being productive. One of my favorite things about summer in Seattle is the seafood you get to have all season long. Granted, seafood is good pretty much anytime, but it just tastes better in the summer. Plus you get to eat outdoors and stuff and oysters are more in season at the end of summer anyways! Though I’m not much of a cook anymore – let’s just call it a hiatus – that doesn’t mean I don’t have cravings. From my Pinterest board, here are five of my favorite seafood recipes that we believe were made for the summer. We haven’t tried them yet, but maybe you can and let me know what you think!
