Add Seafood to Meals

Add Seafood to Meals

Seafood in addition to tasting good, is a great sources of protein, low in fat, and is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines recommend that Americans eat at least two servings of fish each week. Here are some suggestions for incorporating seafood in meals.
At lunchtime, tuna salad sandwiches are the first thing that comes to mind, but there are also other options. Seafood tacos are becoming more popular and available in local restaurants. Also top your salad with some tuna or leftover salmon.
When making soup, consider making seafood chowder or seafood gumbo. One option is to make a large batch of soup and freeze in smaller batches for quick meals. Soup can be eaten at lunch or dinner. There are also canned varieties available, remember to check the sodium content.
At dinner time sauté some shrimp to toss with pasta. Other options include baked cod or salmon and seasoned grilled shrimp skewers.
Seafood can add variety and great taste to meals.
