Assemble your own raw bar at home!
Make a splash with seafood
Festive Raw Bar at Home! Fresh and pre-cooked choices from our Seafood Department make an impressive set-up simple. Please note any restrictions on gatherings that apply to your jurisdiction. Here's how:
Snow crab and lobster: No fuss thaw-and-serve legs and claws. Pile onto chilled platters and tuck cold lemon wedges and fresh parsley sprigs into the mix. Be sure to have lobster cracker tools to make short work of shells. Check out this seafood primer to learn how to crack a lobster.
- Peeled and cooked shrimp: Thaw and mound in a chilled bowl. Pop a couple ice cubes on top. The melting ice keeps the shrimp nice and cold.
Raw oysters on the half-shell: Shuck the oysters and arrange on a rimmed tray or platter of ice. If your fridge makes crushed ice, even better. You'll want to pass these around before the ice melts. Oyster shucking newbie? Watch this video for shucking 101.
Dipping sauces: Some warm, some cold. Set out a variety on a tray or lazy Susan for joyful dunking including: Garlic Aioli for lobster and crab, Garlic Herb Butter for shrimp, Lemon Herb Mignonette for oysters.
- Shells: Don't forget to put out plenty of empty bowls to catch the discards.
