Health Benefits To Eating Summer Seafood Recipes
There are many benefits to eating seafood besides feeling as though you’re vacationing seaside. Seafood is a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals. The Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA aid in the prevention of common chronic diseases. It also promotes healthy eye and brain development in children and helps prevent the risk of heart disease in adults.
What If I Hate Seafood? Ideal Summer Seafood Recipes
The key to eating a healthy diet that includes seafood is finding an ideal way to prepare it. You might also try less “fishy” fish, like Arctic char instead of salmon and flounder and haddock are mild fish and easy to find. One of my favorites is Tilapia because it’s boneless and has a neutral flavor. All of these are great for eating with a little lemon and dill or to add to a recipe.
Any time you add fish to a recipe, you’ll find that other flavors of the meal “drown” out (see what I did there) the fishy flavors that some people don’t like. Try a few of these summer seafood recipes and let us know which one was your favorite!
