When summer hits, I can’t get enough of seafood in my diet. Some of my favorite shellfish and fish appetizers are Baked Shrimp Taquitos, Shrimp Summer Rolls with Peanut Hoisin Dipping Sauce, Smoked Salmon Pinwheels and my latest recipe, Steamed Mussels with Piri Piri.

These were actually a happy accident. I had leftover fresh lump crab meat that I didn’t want to waste after making crab cakes so I whipped up this easy appetizer. They turned out really good! For best results, don’t fill the phyllo shells until you’re ready to bake, and eat right away!
