When traveling, the first thing we look for is delicious food. Whether it’s great barbecue in Texas or succulent seafood in Maine, one of the best parts about roving across the country is chowing down. But if you’re stuck at home this summer, don’t worry — you can easily re-create some states’ signature dishes from the comfort of your own kitchen.
We’ve highlighted seven of our favorite summer recipes below, ranging from the classics (Key Lime Pie from Florida) to the adventurous bites (Salmon Candy from Alaska). For the full list of all 50 states’ recipes, click here.
