Go Fishing For New Recipes

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy seafood, even if you’ve shied away from it in the past. There are plenty of tasty ways to enjoy fish and great opportunities to get creative in the kitchen while you try out new recipes. Why not add more seafood recipes to your summer menus? For one thing, its light flavor and texture won’t weigh you down on a hot day. Also, seafood cooks quickly—pair it with simple grilled vegetables or plant-based recipes, and dinner is on the table in no time flat. That means you can spend more time enjoying the gorgeous weather and less time cooped up in the kitchen.

But that’s not the only good news! Many types of fish—including sardines, albacore tuna and salmon—contain better-for-you fats called omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, because fish is a lean source of protein and can provide beneficial fats, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends adults eat at least 8 ounces of a variety of seafood (fish and shellfish) per week.1 Below we offer some of our favorite Healthy Living seafood recipe ideas that are sure to make a splash in your home.

  • For entertaining, serve Pineapple Shrimp Skewers. This Healthy Living recipe takes just 20 minutes to prepare but has a supremely gourmet feel.
