Ever notice how seafood tastes especially delish when you're near the beach?

It's not just 'cause it's freshly caught: A recent study found that listening to ocean sounds like waves while noshing on aquatic eats makes the meal more appetizing.

We asked Chef Katie Lee, host of the Cooking Channel's Beach Bites with Katie Lee, for her favorite healthy seafood picks.

LOBSTER COBB SALAD

Fill a large serving bowl with chopped romaine lettuce. Make rows of the following chopped foods on top of the lettuce: tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, bacon, avocado, and lobster. Sprinkle with minced chives.

For salad dressing: whisk two tablespoons Dijon mustard with two tablespoons red wine vinegar until well combined.

Slowly whisk in one-third cup extra-virgin olive oil until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.

COCONUT SHRIMP

Dredge large shrimp in flour, then dip in beaten egg, then toasted coconut flakes. Bake at 400°F for seven or eight minutes until cooked through.

Serve with orange marmalade for dipping (microwave jarred marmalade for about 30 seconds to thin it out.)

Liven up your salmon with a miso glaze. Here's how:

SALMON GRILL PACKS

Place a four-ounce piece of salmon on a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil and season with salt and pepper.

Top with chopped cherry tomatoes, garlic, capers, and lemon. Wrap the foil around the salmon to create a packet and place it on the grill for about 10 minutes.
