Nothing says seafood quite like warm weather and being by the ocean! With Spring finally here in New England, we’re all starting to itch for a good lobster roll or seafood plate. At Summer Shack, our Boston location is finally out of hibernation from the winter, and we’re so excited to share some of our fan-favorite seafood dishes with you! If your mouth is watering for a plate of fried calamari or seared scallops, maybe even fish and chips or raw oysters, we’ve got you covered! You can get all your favorites at our seafood restaurant, located in Back Bay Boston this spring. Below are 5 of our top picks from the menu that you can’t go wrong with!  

Shrimp Scampi Linguini 

A classic seafood dish, the shrimp scampi linguini is one of our most popular dishes at Summer Shack. It’s served in a creamy lemon butter sauce with spinach, tomatoes, & grilled bread on the side. Pair it with a glass of chardonnay or sauvignon blanc for a tasty contrast without overpowering the dish. The acidity of white wines cuts through the rich oils of the dish for a perfect pairing. 

Grilled Cape Cod Scallop & Shrimp

For a lighter dish that is refreshing and reminds us of summer, the Grilled Cape Cod Scallop & Shrimp plate is a go-to. Served with an heirloom tomato salad, balsamic drizzle, kale & herb roasted potatoes, you can’t help but feeling like you’re at a summer cookout! 

Fisherman's Platter

If you can’t make up your mind and want a little taste of everything, the Fisherman’s Platter is a great option! With a generous sampling of fried scallops, haddock & shrimp, your tastebuds (and stomach) will be fully satisfied with this choice. Order as an entree, or share with the table as an appetizer! 

Baked Stuffed Lobster

For all the lobster fans out there, we have a delectable selection of lobster dishes to choose from. One of our most popular is the baked stuffed lobster. With a lemon butter sauce, shrimp stuffing, and garlic crumbs, it’s the perfect dish for seafood lovers. 

Pan-Roasted Lobster

Lastly, we couldn’t list our favorites without mentioning Jasper’s famous pan-roasted lobster. It’s a classic that never disappoints. Cooked with bourbon, chervil & chives, the flavor will have your taste buds dancing. Pair it with a delicious sangria or cocktail to feel like you’re sitting on a beach somewhere!
