East Coast Keto Seafood Boil- Great for a summer BBQ
Under our other business umbrella, Bobbi Pike Art, we’ve been lucky to be accepted within the Chef world in Newfoundland. As a foodie, there is not a bigger honour that could be bestowed, other than the opportunity to cook with these fine folks. (Insert Burlington picture)
We’ve picked up many a culinary tip along the way, from secret ingredients, favourite food/spice combinations and many ‘how-to’ tricks of the inner circle. This is one of the ideas that we picked up along the way. We’ve added our own flavour profile to make it our own and of course made some substitutions to make it keto friendly.
This is a fun hands-on feast for any family/friend gathering. The recipe feeds about three people, but it can be multiplied for a bigger crowd. We hope this dish helps to bring a feeling of contentment to your next family gathering.

We were gobsmacked the first time we saw this East Coast Keto Fish Boil being served, or thrown on the table. Coming from a culture where every dish is plated in a precise manner, there is something entrancing about the primitive way this dish is served. Guests are invited to dig in with their hands, similar to the way a prehistoric clan would enjoy their meal. The hands-on approach adds to the satisfaction of the meal and helps instill a feeling of getting back to the bare bones roots of eating around the campfire as a family.
