Things to do

With the holidays in full swing, there is still time to place your order with Turner’s for your Christmas or New Year’s gathering. What better way to impress your guests and lighten your cooking load than with some prepared treats from your favorite New England seafood house?? Or perhaps you celebrate Christmas Eve with a traditional feast of Seven Fishes- whether celebrating old traitions or creating new ones, Turner’s can help meet all your seafood needs this holiday season!

You can arrange to pick up your order at any of our three locations– Melrose, Gloucester or Salem.  You can also take advantage of Dock-to-Door, the online store that ships anywhere in the continental US.  Below are some of the appetizers and entrees you can enjoy with friends and family during this special time of year. If you are having trouble choosing, we also offer package deals including a Cocktail Party Package.  All of this info is also available through our website at


Shrimp Cocktail




This shrimp will change your expectations of what great shrimp cocktail should be. The shrimp is cooked shell-on in seasoned water and then shocked in an ice water bath to retain natural flavor and texture. Serve chilled with the included Turner’s zesty homemade cocktail sauce and a squeeze of lemon.





Oysters Rockafella




The Turner’s variation on a New Orleans classic. We top fresh, shucked oysters with sautéed spinach, bacon, Gruyère cheese, shallots and bread crumbs. Delicious. Served on the half shell. We suggest 2-3 per person as an appetizer, or a half dozen as an entrée.




Scallops Wrapped in Bacon



Large, tender 100% natural North Atlantic sea scallops are wrapped in the highest quality bacon. We suggest 2-4 pieces per person as an appetizer, or a half dozen per person as an entrée. Approximately 20 scallops per pound.  Suggestion: Serve with our honey soy dipping sauce.





Turner’s New England Clam Chowder




Our classic award winning New England chowder — full of fresh clams, red bliss potatoes, and a perfect blend of cream and herbs. Served with Westminster oyster crackers.





Nana Turner’s Cod Cakes




Our grandmother’s original Newfoundland recipe with salt cod, Yukon potatoes, butter, onions and seasonings. Our cakes are approximately 4 oz. each. We suggest 1 per person as an appetizer, or 2 per person as an entrée.




Baked Stuffed Shrimp



Premium wild jumbo shrimp with our legendary seafood vegetable stuffing and Turner’s famous lobster basil cream sauce makes for a perfect dinner. We suggest 2 shrimp per person as an appetizer or 4-5 per person as an entrée.
