Eating seafood is essential to a healthy, balanced diet but many people have aversions to cooking it, whether it’s the smell, texture or flavor. This selection of summery seafood ideas puts together plenty of easy options to turn seafood skeptics into fans – check it out! One of our favorite things about fish is not only is it light to eat, it cooks fast and can be prepared in a million different ways. You can enhance the delicate natural flavor of our Basic Poached Salmon with a tangy tarragon vinaigrette, or liven up simply broiled fish with the spicy flavor of homemade puttanesca sauce. And nutrient rich clams make a delicious, quick cooking topping for a ridiculously easy summer pasta.
Talking of nutrients, seafood isn’t just a delicious protein to center your meal around. It’s an incredible source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Vitamin D and Vitamin B and B-complex. These all work to improve energy levels, metabolism and even mental concentration. While there are hundreds of bottles of vitamin capsules lining the walls of your local health foods store, it’s always recommended to get your vitamins and minerals from real food, and fish is an incredible one-stop-shop for many of them. Pick a seafood, add in a few vegetables and spices, and you’ll have nature’s most powerful, and most delicious, multivitamin right in front of you!
