To bring a bit of the Outer Banks to your Holiday dinner table, we've compiled some recipes that are reminiscent of the beach. We hope you crave your next OBX Vacation!
Recipes Inspired by the Sea
One of the many beauties of living on the Outer Banks is the ability to have fresh seafood readily available. Whether you choose to drop the net, cast the line yourself or stop in to one of our local seafood markets, you will find the options are delectable.
Hatteras Clam Chowder
Popular amoung early settlers of the island, this dish has become a staple for Outer Banks residents and visitors alike.
Oysters can be found and eaten all year round, however it is recommended the time to harvest is during the colder months. The saying goes that they reach their peak season during the months ending in 'R'. Add a little brine to your traditional stuffing this year and try this recipe!
