Friday Four 4: Seafood Recipes + Life

Friday Four: Delicious Seafood Recipes that you will LOVE! | This Gal Cooks

Happy Friday Fun Day! Today I’m going to share four delicious Seafood Recipes with you. But first, a little peek into what went on in my world this week.

Four ten hour shifts. That’s what went on. I’ve used up all of my vacation for the year so in order for me to take today and Monday off for our Charleston vacation, I had to work four tens. I get to do it all over again next week, too! Fun fun.

YES! We are on our way to Charleston. We woke up well before dawn to hit the road and make the 7 hour drive from South Florida. We may or may not still be driving right now. It depends on what time you’re reading this post. But if you want to keep up on our weekend travels, be sure to follow along on Instagram. ♥︎

Perfect for birthdays!

Happy birthday to me! My birthday is next week. Each year we head to a vacation destination for my birthday. We’ve never gone out of state for my birthday, though. Typically, we visit a coastal town in Florida. Most years our destination was the St. Pete Beach, Florida area. One year we visited Sebastian. Last year we were in Orlando for the Florida BlogCon conference. This year, Charleston stole our hearts. I can’t wait to share our Charleston adventures with you!

A few things I’m looking forward to:

  • Dining at some amazing restaurants. I’ve been told Charleston is a total foodie town.
  • Visiting some of the local breweries. This craft beer lovin’ gal has to try out some of the local stuff.
  • Kayaking! We love kayaking. It’s such a great way to enjoy nature from a different perspective. It’s great exercise, too!
  • Being in a coastal town. I love being near the water. I live near the water and I’m always excited to visit other towns that are nestled along the coast.

Do you have any must see/must dine at Charleston locations that you’d like to share with me? If so, leave them in a comment below!

So on to those Four Delicious Seafood Recipes that I mentioned above. There’s something for every occasion in this collection – an appetizer; a pasta salad; a pasta dish; a grilled taco recipe. All of these tried and true recipes have been tried by Ken and I. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

  2. All these recipes look so amazing, Julie! Pinned x 3! I am a huge sucker for orzo salads of any kind… and shrimp tacos… or any tacos really. But these all look terrific, and I hope you have a great trip! I have nothing to contribute to the conversation on Charleston, but if you ever visit Milwaukee or Los Angeles, I might have an opinion! :) Have a great weekend!

    • Oh I love any tacos, too! I could eat them every day for the rest of my life and NEVER get sick of them. :) I may have to take you up on the LA suggestions – we may plan a trip to California for next year!

      Thanks for stopping by, Meggan. Hope you have a great weekend. :)

  3. That cheesy chipotle shrimp dip… I just about died when I saw it. I ate cheese dip for dinner last Friday, so why not make it two weeks in a row? Also really looking forward to your vacation pics! Have fun!

  4. Enjoy your trip and make it a whole birthday week– even with four ten hour shifts. Have a good one!

  5. Have a wonderful vacation and birthday Julie!!!

  6. These dishes look fabulous! And yay, have a wonderful trip Julie and happy happy birthday :)

  7. Those shrimp tacos look fab! And I LOVE traveling for my birthday, it makes it feel so much more special :)

  8. I must be in a seafood mode. I was licking my lips with each selection. Wow again for Charleston. What a great choice of a birthday treat. I KNOW you are having so much fun.

    • Thank you, Carol! It was a great time. Wish it would have lasted longer. Such a beautiful town and I could totally feel fall in the air. We cannot feel it in Florida at all!

  9. I love all four of the recipes, but that orzo salad is my favorite! Can’t wait to try it, since I just bought some fresh salmon today. Pinning! I hope you have a great vacation!
