Hey seafoodies, are you as excited about summer as we are?
Not only does June mark the start of the warmest season, it’s also Fresh Fruit & Veggies Month. And there’s nothing better than pairing our seafood favorites with seasonal fruits and veggies bursting with color and flavor.
This month’s meal plan is light and healthy and it’ll make your taste buds do a happy dance!

We’ve got a creamy crab dip recipe that’ll hit the spot any time of day.
Fresh and light is the name of the lunchtime game. Think: salmon and shrimp paired with fruit, and poke tuna wrapped in a crisp, lettuce hug. And finally, the hungry mouths in your home will thank you when they dig into seafood-centric dinners like hearty tuna steak and potatoes, lemony grilled scallops and whitefish topped with chopped mangos and oranges.
