Vacation Planning: Seaside Vacations Favorite Recipes


If you're like many people, you spend a lot of time dreaming about the beaches of the Outer Banks - where you'll while away the afternoons with your toes in the sand and a refreshing drink at your side. But even those far away from our pristine beaches can still get into vacation mode by enjoying some delicious beach food. From pirate steak to shrimp tostadas, our recipe collection is sure to send you to the seaside - even if you're just dining in your kitchen.

View our delicious Outer Banks recipes below.

Sun Tea

Sun tea is quite possibly the most perfect drink for the summer. Lemonade is a classic, but it can be a little too tart for the hot days. Juices are too sugary, so they'll dehydrate you and cause a sugar crash halfway through a day at the beach. Water? Well, that's just plain boring.

Turkey Meatloaf

Everyone knows meatloaf as a comfort food. However, this heart-healthy recipe for turkey meatloaf, is just as good (if not better in my opinion) and will have your guests asking for seconds...or thirds...or fourths.

Pirate Steak

Arrrgh matey! Our savory pirate steak recipe will delight even the scalliest of wags.

Steak Pizzaiola

Ciao bella! The best thing about our steak pizzaiola recipe, besides being delicious, is that the dish is cooked in a crock pot. It doesn't get any easier than that.

Mexican Shrimp Tostadas

Our quick and easy Mexican shrimp tostadas recipe includes lime-spiked shrimp on top of fresh green lettuce, black beans and tomatoes.

Crab Omelette

The two bold flavors of crab meat and egg make this breakfast dish a terrific item to start the day with. Consisting of only a handful of ingredients, this omelette is quick, easy and delicious!


Seaside Showcase

It all starts with a luxurious Seaside vacation home or condo in one of the world’s most beautiful beachside communities.
