Trying to increase your weekly servings of fish? Here are seven fresh and fast seafood recipes that will keep things easy and healthy on busy weeknights.
Low in mercury and high in those all-important Omega-3 fats, salmon is a seafood powerhouse! After a quick dunk in a flavorful marinade, it takes only 10 minutes to cook.
Scallops may seem intimidating, but they’re one of the easiest shellfish to prepare, plus they’re ready in minutes!
Wild cod is a mild-tasting and high-protein white fish that everyone loves. Wrap in parchment and steam in the oven — the prep and cleanup couldn’t be easier.
Shrimp can be steamed, grilled, roasted or broiled, as it is in this recipe prepared with salty feta and tender orzo pasta.
Halibut has a rich, buttery flavor but is super-low in fat (a 3-ounce piece has only 2 grams). Use a hot skillet and prepare in less than 15 minutes.
Tilapia makes a tasty and complete one-pot meal that’s ready in only 30 minutes. Leftovers make a great lunch for the work the next day.
Every seafood lover needs a good fish taco recipe. Striped bass is another flavorful and low-mercury fish that’s filled with B vitamins, including niacin, B6 and B12.
