Beach Bites with Katie Lee Full Episode Guide

  • Katie Lee heads to Tybee Island, Georgia, a barrier island just 18 miles southeast of culinary mecca Savannah. The small island is full of big flavors, and Katie starts her exploration with perfectly sweet local shrimp and a spicy blackened fish hoagie at a restaurant so beloved that the locals rallied to keep it open. She's introduced to "hog wings," a local version of hot wings that trade the chicken for pork, and she dives into the local specialty, oysters, that are so nice, she tries them twice -- roasted and baked with collards and bacon. Katie finishes off her visit with ice cream cookie sandwiches and deep-fried strawberries that represent what the South is all about.

  • Katie Lee is hitting California's famed Pacific Coast Highway to find delicious, international beach food in a beautiful coastal setting. In Monterey, she discovers rich Italian influences in cioppino with local Dungeness crab. Then she finds an almond croissant in Carmel that makes her think she's been transported to France. Mexican fare in California is always authentic and unbeatable, and Katie samples a perfect pork mole, smooth Mezcal and a Mexican specialty snack, grasshoppers! She can't leave wine country without pairing some vino with local seafood, and sweet treats like fudge and candy apples are always in order.

  • Katie Lee jaunts just off the coast of Florida to the most accessible, populated and food-centric island in the Bahamas, New Providence, and the city of Nassau. Conch is a staple here, so Katie can't turn down the freshest conch salad, and local specialties like hog snapper, chicken patties and a Bahama Mama cocktail also represent the island culture. Local spices give barbecue a uniquely Bahamian twist, and a Louisiana family is bringing N'awlins Creole to these majestic isles. Katie wraps things up with a true island classic, the Guava Duff, for dessert.

  • Katie Lee is toasting the gooey-est of dairy delights. Katie teams up with her Kitchen Co-Host, Marcela Valladolid for tacos in San Diego. But there are no tortillas here, just cheese curds! San Diego also brings Chorizo Fundido - an epic, spicy waterfront treat. How does one liven up a cheesy Au Gratin? Well, when on the Alabama shores of the Gulf of Mexico, Katie adds gorgeous local shrimp! Florida doubles down with Mac & Cheese Grilled Cheese, while Arizona serves up seriously stuffed mushrooms! But Katie find one of the most creative uses of this versatile ingredient in Hawaii, Goat Cheese Truffles!

  • Life is too short for food to be boring, which is why Katie Lee is on the hunt for dishes and restaurants that are off the beaten path. Katie's in the know on Sullivan's Island, S.C where she is introduced to the Peanut Butter and Jelly Burger. In Myrtle Beach, S.C Katie is treated to the unexpected at a sushi restaurant when she tries the Fried Chicken Sushi Roll. Wanting to step further outside of the box, Katie strikes gold in Hawaii with the Mac & Cheese Pancakes and Pho-Strami, a Vietnamese spin on the East Coast classic deli sandwich. Katie flips over the Lobster Egg Roll in Florida, and the Crab "BLTA" in California.

  • Two of Katie Lee's favorite things are coming together, the beach and Sweets, and she is ready to share the best of the best! Decadent donuts in Arizona and Sticky Buns in South Carolina represent the best of pastries. California is representing with the Cococarma, a coconut, caramel, ice cream skillet cookie. Katie delivers the two hottest sweets in Hawaii with a classic Shave Ice on the North Shore of Oahu and a beachside Flourless Chocolate Cake in Maui. A decadent, rich cake with Maui Vanilla Creme Anglaise and Kona Espresso Ice Cream is definitely worth the trip for a Hawaiian-tinged, gooey dessert. In Florida, nachos get amped up and become Dessert Nachos.

  • What's better than delicious beach food? Delicious food stuffed into more delicious food! Katie Lee shares the most stuffed, packed full, brimming to the rim dishes because the more, the merrier! In Florida, Katie finds amazing Empanadas and Brisket-Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers. Next, Katie delights in some Southern cuisine with a Creole Stuffed Tater in Alabama and Southern Stuffed Salmon in Myrtle Beach. Katie features the ancient Hawaiian dish Lau Lau, pork and fish stuffed in to taro leaves. But the most stuffed of the stuffed? Arizona's very own 5-pound, 2-foot burrito!

  • Join Katie Lee on her mission to find the best golden-fried goodness the beach has to offer! First up, South Carolina for local fish, shrimp and crab cakes that are battered and crisped for the perfect Fried Seafood Platter. Next, Katie finds a twist on a Southern staple with Chicken Fried Wagyu in Alabama. Katie carves her way through a Chicken Chimichanga in Arizona. In Hawaii, Katie mans the wok to create an amazing whole fried fish. In Florida, Katie finds a heavenly A Frita de Desavuna- a fried egg and deepfried avocado, open-faced sandwich.
