5 Tips for Eating Seafood

5 Tips for Eating Seafood

Is seafood a part of your diet?

If you’ve been thinking about adding more seafood to your diet, here are some tips that will get you started. Many people love eating crabs in the summer and enjoy frying fish throughout the year, so why not unlock more of the benefits that seafood has to offer at home?

Value Variety

You’ll love exploring all the different flavors and varieties available with seafood. But more than that, remember that seafood is incredibly healthy too. Do some research on the nutrients that each type of seafood offers. Choose some that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids but low in mercury.

Eat Lean and Clean

Try some cooking options other than frying, like grilling, broiling, roasting, or baking. Bring out the flavor of the fish by also avoid creamy sauces that mask its natural flavor. You can skip the extra calories by seasoning the fish with spices, herbs, or even lemon and lime juice.

Crack the Shells

Don’t shy away from cooking with shellfish; there are many recipes available that make cooking shellfish easy. Plus, they are also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. To start, give oyster stew, steamed clams, calamari, or mussels a try!

Keep It Handy

Fresh seafood can be expensive and will cause you to make more trips to the grocery store than you usually would. Canned seafood offers a more affordable alternative that you can keep for a longer amount of time and always have on hand. You’ll find canned salmon, tuna, and sardines.

Safety First

Be sure always to handle and cook seafood safely. Even with all the nutritional value that seafood has, it can still make you sick if not handled and prepared correctly. Make sure that you first inspect all seafood for color and smell before cooking. Strictly follow all cooking instructions to the appropriate temperature, texture, and color before eating.
