Shellfish -- a central ingredient in so many cuisines, so many dishes, so many styles of cooking -- can add great diversity to mealtime planning. If you haven't cooked a lot with shellfish, or if you're looking to add more diverse dishes to your recipe repertoire, start with our shellfish guide. From shrimp to lobster, crabs, mussels, and oysters, our downloadable (and free) guide will help you understand how to prepare each type of shellfish and how long it will take to cook. Pasta tosses are excellent for working seafood into your meals. Cook your way through all of our easy weeknight dinner options. Seafood can be cooked on the stove top, in the oven, and on the grill; try each method with our favorite fish and shellfish recipes to get the recommended two serving of fish every week. A boiled lobster dinner is elegant and festive -- and easier than you think; we show you how. For a more sophisticated approach, try our lobster tails dish for a special-occasion meal.
