Fresh vegetables are a healthy addition to any seafood meal. A blend of seafood and vegetables can bring life to any nutritious meal when paired correctly. Seafood is a healthy meat alternative because it is lower in calories and fat than other meats like beef, chicken, and pork. As a result, people that live healthy lifestyles are more inclined to consume seafood because of its nutritional benefits. Continue reading to learn more about adding vegetables to any seafood meal.
Sauteed Spinach and Seafood
Leafy greens like spinach can compliment pretty much any fish. Spinach is a superfood and helps aid in weight loss, reduces hypertension, and is low in calories. For optimal flavor with your seafood dish, you can sautee your spinach. Some popular flavors include garlic, lemon, and cheese.
Brussell Sprouts And Shrimp
These two make for a dynamic duo between seafood and vegetables. Shrimp has always been one of the more popular kinds of seafood available. Brussel sprouts might not be high on your favorite vegetable list, but it is another nutritious powerhouse vegetable that goes well with seafood. Stir-fry Brussel sprouts are a tastier option than a steamed version.
Asparagus blends with seafood
Here we continue our trend with green vegetables. Asparagus is another superfood that is low in calories but high in nutrients. It is high in antioxidants, and asparagus can also help improve digestive health because it is high in fiber. Salmon is an exceptional combination with asparagus. A simple meal like baked salmon with asparagus combined with an assortment of seasonings is a healthy easy meal to prepare.
The Best Choice of All Vegetables
Creamed corn served with scallops is another tantalizing meal you can prepare. If you want to add flavor, you can pan-sear some sweet corn and scallops with whatever seasonings you prefer. Corn on the cob is famous for being added to Seafood boils, and they also go well with crab legs.
