We can’t deny that the love we all have for food is pure and sincere. If you disagree, we assure you that your quince guests will most likely be eager to fill their bellies with a tasty menu. Also, people agree that if the food is great it helps make the party even more successful.

Since we’ll enjoy a great weather for at least four more months, we want to dedicate this piece to a delicious summer theme menu. It’ll be perfect if you are actually planning a quinceañera party outdoors. So, a little menu planning can easily woo the crowd.

Here are some seafood menu ideas, super originals, that will make your quince meal memorable – and for sure, have your guests craving more!

Seafood appetizer ideas

  • Bacon-wrapped scallops with cilantro mayonnaise

This appetizer is easy to make and incredibly yummy! As impressive as it sounds, the scallops just need salt and pepper for the seasoning, but it’s the bacon that does the rest.
