This list includes clams, mussels, and oysters. All of which contain healthy omega-3s! They can all be prepared in a variety of ways to appeal to your taste buds.

Don’t Overdo The Extra Fat

There are a few healthy cooking methods when it comes to seafood. If you want to enjoy a healthy seafood dinner, stay away from the fried stuff.
