What Are The Healthiest Types Of Seafood?

Studies have shown that consuming healthy seafood can contribute to a longer and healthier life. However, additional research indicates that many Americans are not consuming enough of it. To help you improve your diet, we have compiled a list of some of the most beneficial types of seafood you can enjoy when dining out at Costas Inn.


A three-ounce serving of shrimp contains only 84 calories, making it a low-calorie option for those looking to maintain a healthy diet. In addition, shrimp is also high in protein, with 20 grams per serving, and contains significant amounts of essential minerals like iron and zinc. Shrimp is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, with 300 milligrams per serving.


Crab is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. A 3-ounce serving of crab contains between 80 and 100 calories, 16 and 20 grams of protein, and 350 to 400 milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids, depending on the variety. Incorporating crab into your diet can be a healthy addition to a well-balanced meal plan.


This type of fish is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids that provide various health benefits. These essential fatty acids can help improve brain function, reduce inflammation, and lower the risk of heart disease. So, if you’re looking for a healthy and delicious way to boost your omega-3 intake, consider adding salmon.


Scallops are low in calories, cholesterol, and most unhealthy saturated fats, so they’re great for weight management. Whether you’re looking to gain or lose weight, scallops can be an excellent part of your regular diet. Scallops are also rich in protein, making them the perfect option for people seeking to gain a healthy weight and increase muscle mass.
