Italian Seafood Recipes

With the country's long coastline as well as many lakes,  Italians have a wide variety of seafood to choose from.  A visit to an Italian fish market will reveal fish and shellfish of every description, many unknown outside of Italy.  Italians tend to prepare their seafood very simply, without a lot of elaborate sauces.  Shellfish are often simply grilled or fried, although many frequently turn up in pasta sauces, salads, and risotto.

Why is Some Seafood Called Fra Diavolo?
Fra diavolo is an angry sauce named after an angry guy.  It's name translates as "brother devil" and is a reference to Michele Pezza, an infamous hothead and ferocious bandit who carried the nickname.  Pezza was hired to lead Italian guerilla forces fighting against the invading French at Naples at the turn of the 19th century.
Crab Cakes
Our crab cakes are made with lump crab meat with little filler so the sweet crab flavor dominates.  This recipe makes 6 large crab cakes.  You can serve 1 as an appetizer or 1 as an entree with a side dish or salad.  If you divide the mixture into smaller portions, these crab cakes also make great appetizers.
