If you’re wondering what to serve with your seafood lasagna, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I list 11 of the most popular side dishes for seafood lasagna.
In a rush? Here’s the short answer.
The best dishes to serve with seafood lasagna are cheesy garlic pull-apart bread, sourdough bread, steamed broccoli, or zucchini ribbon salad. Try pan-fried kale, green bean salad, or creamy cucumber salad for some added crunch. Caprese salad makes a good starter.
Ready? Let’s jump right in.
Trust me when I say you’re going to want to have some sourdough bread on hand when you sit down to eat this seafood lasagna.
The last thing you want is to be struggling to get those final bites of seafood goodness into your mouth.
And a crusty piece of bread is the perfect vehicle to mop up all the delicious tomato and cheese sauce.
Heartbeat Kitchen has a great guide to making your own bread that’s easy to follow.
Kale gets a bad rep, but I think it works perfectly with seafood.
The grassy notes of this leafy green vegetable help to balance out the mild sweetness of the seafood.
And it only takes 5 minutes to fry in a pan.
The Pioneer Woman has a delectable recipe I’m sure you’ll want to check out.
Psst… I like to chuck a few chilis in as well for some heat.
Lasagna is pretty time-consuming to prepare, so you need an easy side.
Which is where this ultra simple steamed broccoli comes into the equation.
It’s healthy, tasty, and adds a nice pop of green to the plate.
Best of all? It only takes 5 minutes to cook and zero effort.
This pan-steamed broccoli uses chicken broth instead of water to give it a flavor boost.
Zucchini ribbon salad
Seafood lasagna is a delicious, slightly lighter twist on a classic dish.
And I think it pairs really well with this refreshing zucchini ribbon salad.
You don’t need any fancy tools here, you can make the ribbons with a vegetable peeler. Then add some corn and a sprinkle of feta.
And toss everything in a mix of olive oil, lemon juice, and mint.
Cheesy garlic pull-apart bread
You can’t get much more traditional than lasagna and garlic bread.
But if you’re serving a crowd, you can do better than a few slices of buttered bread.
This cheesy garlic pull-apart bread is so fun!
The ooey-gooey cheese stretches on for miles when you pull out a piece of the bread – it provides non stop entertainment.
One of my favorite Italian starters is a Caprese salad.
All you need are some sweet tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, and fragrant basil. Plus a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
It’s a no-cook option that free’s your time up to focus on the lasagna or your guests (I know which one I’d pick).
The salad also tastes great with a cold glass of white wine.
Perfect grilled zucchini
Sometimes, less is more.
And these freshly grilled zucchinis are a perfect example of that.
They’ll add a nice smoky flavor to the dish, but are mild enough that they won’t overshadow the seafood in your lasagna.
This recipe is the perfect way to show off your grilling skills.
(and yes this is the second zucchini recipes I included, can you tell it’s my favorite vegetable?!)
Want something unique?
Pan-grilled radicchio is perfect (and looks amazing).
Radicchio has a pretty bitter taste, and when you grill it, it takes on a delicious charred flavor. Together, the sharp flavors will cut through the richness of the lasagna beautifully.
This recipe dresses the radicchio with a vibrant olive-caper salsa. But you can also keep things simple with a lemon vinaigrette.
Green bean salad
This green bean salad is a great summer dish.
The lemon and dill add a refreshing zing to the salad, and the green beans provide a lovely crunchy contrast to velvety lasagna.
Is your mouth watering yet?
Simply Recipes has some great tips on seasoning your salad.
Psst… sprinkle some bacon bits on top for some smokiness.
Italian chopped salad
Lasagna is an Italian dish, so it makes sense to pair it with a classic Italian salad.
You’ve got the classic flavors of balsamic, tomatoes, and cheese. But this recipe from Gimme Some Oven also has a secret ingredient you wouldn’t want to miss.
Hint: it has something to do with bagel seasoning.
Creamy cucumber salad
This side dish list has turned into a very green list, so here’s one more green side to finish things off.
Cucumber is fresh and crunchy, and dressed in a creamy sauce it’s perfect for cooling your mouth down after tucking into a piping hot lasagna.
Plus it only takes 5 minutes to pull together, so it’s a life-saver if you’ve left everything to the last minute.
