From shrimp and lobster Alfredo and seafood rolls to seafood pizza, dinner got a little more exciting. 

Check out these shrimp and lobster recipes below to jazz up your meals with bright flavors!

1. Lobster and Shrimp Etouffee

Don’t let the fancy French name intimidate you. Etouffee is a fancy way of saying “smothered” and hails from Louisiana.

Think of this dish like Creole seafood rice and gravy. 

Adding lobster and shrimp lends a subtle sweetness to the savory sauce enriched with heavy spices.

When you think Creole, you think spicy, and you’d be right.

However, you can easily adjust the spiciness of this dish and taste as you go. 

It’s rich and hearty, and the rice soaks up all those delicious flavors. 

2. Blackened Shrimp and Lobster Pasta

This pasta dish has a little bit of everything.

Blackened shrimp and lobster add rich, smoky flavors with a touch of sweetness that pair well in a creamy sauce. 

The cream sauce for the pasta is like a rich and creamy Alfredo sauce with a hint of spice from red pepper flakes.

Add your blackened seafood, garnish with herbs and shaved parmesan, and mix with pasta.

It’s smoky and creamy and comes together in just 40 minutes!

3. Seafood Stew With Shrimp and Lobster

This isn’t your grandma’s Sunday night stew. 

It’s rich, hearty, and surprisingly light. It pairs bright flavors from lime, lobster, shrimp, and spices in a delicious (and light) stew. 

I also love the seafood-to-veggie ratio. With so much lobster and shrimp, it ensures that every bite is meaty and delicious. 

4. Must-Have Shrimp and Lobster Alfredo

Move over chicken Alfredo. There’s a new pasta dish in town. 

Shrimp Alfredo with lobster is just as decadent as it sounds.

The creamy Alfredo sauce is buttery and creamy and pairs so well with the subtle sweetness of the seafood. 

It’s easy to whip together on a busy weeknight and takes as it came from a fancy restaurant!

5. Creamy Seafood Lasagna

Who’s ready to get a little cheesy? This creamy seafood lasagna doesn’t shy away from cheese, and I am here for it!

With a savory seafood twist, it blends everything you love about lasagna.

It has tender noodles, rich sauces, and oh-so-much cheese. 

Instead of a beefy tomato sauce, this lasagna recipe pairs sweet lobster, shrimp, and crab in an addictive creamy garlic sauce.

Top it with cheese, and watch the entire pan disappear. 

6. Creamy Lobster Shrimp Stuffed Shells

Few humans can resist the siren call of stuffed shells.

This recipe is worth checking out, even if you aren’t a huge seafood fan.

It’s creamy, cheesy, and packed with rich flavors. 

These stuffed shells are more than creamy sauce and tender pieces of lobster and shrimp.

With robust spices like Old Bay, veggies, and just a pinch of nutmeg for warmth, it’s incredible. 

It may take a little extra time to come together, but it’s worth it!

7. Seafood Enchiladas

Enchiladas are unapologetically heavy. Instead of dessert, I typically need an enchilada siesta.

However, with a simple seafood swap, these enchiladas are so savory and filling without needing a post-dinner nap. 

What makes these enchiladas so light and flavorful is the bright stuffing.

It pairs lobster, shrimp, and crab with lighter veggies such as corn. 

To combat the sweetness from the corn and seafood, it earns a bright kick from lime juice and added heat from jalapenos. 

Seriously, this enchilada stuffing is so good.

Once stuffed in tortillas and topped with cheese, it will earn a permanent spot in the taco Tuesday rotation. 

8. Spicy Shrimp and Lobster Bisque

Looking for a savory soup recipe this winter?

Give chicken noodle soup the night off and opt for this delicious spicy shrimp and lobster bisque instead!

This soup strikes the perfect balance between sweet, creamy, and spicy.

It earned its sweetness from tons of lobster and shrimp (so every bite is meaty and hearty) and added corn.

It also incorporates spicy additions like poblano peppers and cayenne pepper to tame the sweetness. 

It’s creamy, spicy, sweet, meaty, and 100 percent delicious.

Pair it with crusty bread, and you have a complete meal to warm your cold bones this winter. 

9. Seafood Mac and Cheese

On the hunt for a meal to impress?

Whether cooking for a large group or a certain special someone, you can never go wrong with macaroni and cheese.

 Adding lobster and shrimp is a real game-changer to take this classic comfort food to new heights. 

Gruyère and sharp cheese pair perfectly with sweet seafood.

Gruyère is strong and nutty and adds a robust depth of flavor to this elevated mac and cheese dish

Serve it alone, or serve it with steak for a fantastic surf and turf dinner!

10. Seafood Risotto

Don’t let risotto intimate you. Cooking risotto is easier than you think, as long as you take your time and let the arborio rice work is magic. 

This seafood risotto tastes as if it came from a fancy restaurant, but it’s so easy to make at home.

It pairs the bright flavors of lobster, shrimp, and scallops in a creamy and herbal risotto. 

It takes a little extra time and patience, but I promise it’s worth the extra effort. 

11. Seafood Rolls

Nothing screams summer like a sweet and savory lobster roll.

Instead of just lobster, why not fill those soft pillowy rolls with shrimp, too?

These rolls incorporate tender chunks of lobster and shrimp with fresh summer spices and a touch of mayo for creaminess. 

They’re light, slightly sweet, and go great in super soft brioche hot dog buns. 

12. Lobster Chowder With Shrimp, Scallops, and Salmon

Clam chowder is excellent, but not everyone is crazy for clams.

However, chowder comes in more varieties than clams.

This seafood chowder is a great way to indulge in creamy, meaty chowder. 

It pairs all the best seafood- lobster, shrimp, scallops, and even salmon.

While that’s a great jumping-off point, you can add other fish as well. Whitefish is an excellent substitute for salmon. 

It earns its delightfully creamy texture from heavy cream with a touch of fresh spices.

With so much seafood in this dish, it ensures that every bite is meaty and delicious. 

13. Grilled Seafood Pizza

Move over, pepperoni. 

This seafood pizza is surprisingly easy to make at home.

It pairs grilled seafood like lobster and shrimp in a deliciously creamy Alfredo sauce. Think of it as seafood Alfredo on a pizza. 

You can opt to make your pizza dough at home or use a store-bought crust to save time. 

It’s smooth and hearty and ensures that smoky grilled seafood fills every bite!
