Party Bites: Recipes for Super Bowl 50

The matchup is set and Super Bowl 50 is shaping up to be one of two things: either an epic battle of an upstart quarterback (Cam Newton/Carolina Panthers) versus NFL royalty (Peyton Manning/Denver Broncos) in a close game; or, one of the most lopsided matchups in Super Bowl history (Panthers by 21). Whatever the outcome, February 7 is sure to be a party. Make that tailgate—or couch-gate—a hit with these recipes, a variety of handhelds that bring some serious flavor.


You’ve heard of shrimp cups; you’ve bellied up for lobster rolls. But what about shrimp rolls? This recipe flips the script, making mini shrimp rolls with some serious Florida flavor.
