Did you know that pink-hued seafood—like salmon, shrimp and red trout—get their flesh color from the carotenoid antioxidant astaxanthin? This powerful carotenoid boasts as much antioxidant power as beta-carotene, lutein and vitamins C and E. Antioxidants help to fight free radicals that can wreak havoc in different parts of your body, including skin, heart, and brain. So, boost your antioxidant and omega-3 intake by eating the recommended 2-3 servings of seafood each week.
Pair these nutrient-packed seafoods with colorful veggies and fruits, and you’ve got yourself a delicious and nutritious dish!
Below, we’ve provided you a few of our favorite (and most colorful) rainbow-inspired seafood dishes to recreate for your #SeafoodSunday meal!
