We have all been there. You can just can't help yourself and then you are sitting there with a beautiful doggy bag that you will be taking home. Now at Crab Corner Maryland Seafood House, we are all about leftovers. We believe that food should never be wasted.

However, when it comes to reheated leftover seafood and fish, it can get a bit tricky. Sometimes you may not want to eat this dish again, but you don't want just to let it go to waste!

So as a way to make your next leftover meal better, we have compiled a list of simple ways to cook leftover seafood. This way you won't have to eat the same dish twice, and the food tastes just as great.


Any flaky fish like tilapia, flounder, trout, red snapper, or whiting can be added to tacos. You can throw shrimp in there as well! Go to the store and warm up some tortillas. Then add shredded lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole, and you have yourself delicious seafood tacos.


You can also do this with enchiladas by putting the leftover seafood in tortillas. Then add a layer of cheese, enchilada sauce, and then bake it. You will thank us for this one! It is truly delicious. You can cook some beans and rice on the said as well.


This is great to shellfish and salmon. You can cook pasta with a white or tomato sauce. Sometimes we like to mix the two sauces together to make a creamy, rich tomato sauce. Bake the shellfish or salmon and throw it on top. 


You can never go wrong with a seafood chowder. The chilled leftover shellfish you can throw into any soup like a chowder or bisque. You can look online for different recipes.


We are firm believers that you can throw anything into a sandwich!

Tips to Reheating Seafood

·      Always refrigerate leftovers immediately.

·      Eat it within two days of when you first initially ordered it.

·      Avoid cooking breaded shellfish or fish. The grease in the breading will ruin the taste.

·      If you want to reheat breaded seafood, you can bake it. Do not microwave it!
