6 Pescatarian-Friendly Super Bowl Recipes You Need to Try

The only thing I care about this Super Bowl season is Beyonce. I couldn’t tell you which team is performing or what time. All I know is that Beyonce will be there and I will not only be watching, but grubbing on some good food. The only thing, though, is I’ve changed my diet last year. I’m a pescatarian now. I got me thinking. What on earth do pescatarians eat at Super Bowl parties?! I mean, besides the obligatory chips and dip, what can someone who has dietary restrictions eat at a meat-based fest? Glad you asked. I will share six appetizing recipes I’ve found that will wow your pescatarian friend. They might not want to leave, so watch out.

I am a HUGE fan of spinach. It’s packed with so many great nutrients. But when you spinach AND kale together, oh it’s about to be a party in your mouth, for sure. I loved how they used whole grain crackers in this recipe to give off a little fancy flair. This will be perfect for all of your…froo froo friends.

If you didn’t know, eating hummus is the new trend. If you really want to set the scene to impress, have a complete spread of hummus and dippers. You know, tahini sauce, green olives, fire-roasted chickpeas, gluten-free naan. With veggies in a variety of colors, even your meat-eater friends won’t be able to resist.

The love of a pescatarians life is salmon. Do not dispute this because it is fact. We love seafood. And in our world, salmon is king. Mix up your ingredients (don’t forget the capers!) and voila. Magic.

It’s inevitable that you will cook something that those pesky super meat-eaters will want to eat. Although some meals were prepared for those with dietary restrictions in mind. *side eye* Deviled-eggs are so so good. It helps that they are a quick finger food so many people love. I’m all about presentation. To me, serving these deviled-eggs on bibb lettuce is the kicker. What’s so special about bibb lettuce? Probably nothing. But it’s definitely prettier than iceberg lettuce. (Side note: don’t ever, ever, serve anyone iceberg lettuce. It is the chitterlings of lettuce.)

RED PEPPER FALAFEL

I’ll admit, the first time I ever tasted a falafel was last year. Sue me. But know that I have tasted, I won’t be missing out again. I’m certain a falafel mixed with the chickpea blend is sure to be a pleasant surprise and crowd pleaser.

With all of that said, this is a list of all the foods I’d like to eat at your Super Bowl party. Yes, I am inviting myself. I’ll be there on time, with Tupperware, ready to enjoy Beyonce.
