Five Crowd-Pleasing Super Bowl Recipes

The Super Bowl is, for many people, the most exciting and anticipated sporting event of the year. It's a day when groups of friends come together on a Sunday afternoon/evening and watch the two best teams in the NFL battle for gridiron supremacy. It's also a day when you can gorge yourself on snacks and foods guilt-free – after all, the Super Bowl only comes once a year!

With the big game set to be played this Sunday, chances are that you already have your menu set for your Super Bowl party. However, if you're wondering what to make, why not try some seafood dishes?

These recipes, while not exactly traditional Super Bowl fare, will be definite crowd-pleasers.

Spicy and Sweet Fish Curry

A staple of Super Bowl parties is chili – it's spicy, hearty, and if it's made well enough, you'll feel its effects for days afterwards. This year, instead of chili, try this tasty curry that includes red snapper, triple tail, and shrimp. Red chillies give it a bit of a kick, and a delectable mango puree gives it a little sweetness.
