GIVE THANKS WITH SEAFOOD!
We know that most of you have turkey for dinner on Thanksgiving, but here are some wonderful appetizer ideas to keep everyone happy. (Several of you are having stuffed salmon fillets instead of turkey - a turkey thanks you). Our Salmon Cozies are another great main course choice instead of roasting a turkey. We also have many delicious heat-and-eat side dishes that go wonderfully with your bird and some wonderful pies, tarts and ice cream for dessert:
Burhop's famous shrimp, cooked in small batches with our own secret blend of spices. Serve with our wonderful cocktail sauce, by the bottle or in bulk.
Party Trays (Thanksgiving tray orders must be in by Monday 11/20);
Shrimp, Shrimp & Lobster Claws, Poached Salmon, or Hot & Cold Smoked Salmon. Trays come in a variety of sizes and can be ordered by phone, 630-887-4700, or on line.
Choose from Crab-blend, Smoked Salmon and Smoked Whitefish. All made daily in our kitchen. Just add crackers and feed a crowd!
Hot or Cold Smoked Salmon
Cold smoked from Ducktrap Farms, great on buttered toast points, hot smoked custom done for us here in Chicago, delicious on a cracker.
One of the foods enjoyed at the first Thanksgiving, our East Coast oysters make a great appetizer or an elegant first course. To learn how to open an oyster, go to our on-line video by clicking HERE: Shucking an Oyster.
Stone Crab Claws (Special Order)
The season has begun! These are the one seafood item which you can eat knowing the crab wasn't killed, and it's busy growing a new claw. Serve as an appetizer or a first course with our Stone Ground Mustard Sauce.
We've already mentioned the oysters and stone crab, but our favorite first course for a crowd is a small steaming cup of one of our elegant homemade bisque soups: Choose from Shrimp, Lobster, Butternut Squash, Mushroom and more - just heat and serve with a sprinkling of warm buttered croutons.*
With all the work doing the turkey stuffing, give yourself a break and let us make some of the side dishes. Choose from:
Fresh Roasted Vegetables
Oven Roasted locally grown Butternut Squash
Herb Roasted Potatoes
Oven Roasted Potato Wedges
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Wild Rice and Cherries
Jaime's Rice Pilaf & more
Also available: Shucked oysters for stuffing or scalloped oysters - check out our recipes HERE: Holiday Oyster Recipes
