Gather ‘round, Seafoodies!
It’s time to roll out the red carpet and tell the paparazzi to stand back—the star of the show has arrived! Introducing… seafood!! Now, it’s no secret that we might love seafood a little more than the average person, but probably just as much as our pescatarian friends! Fans of this lifestyle know the scrumptious benefits of enjoying a diet that is rich in underwater bounty—from scallops to sea bass. So for all our pescatarians—here are some easy-to-prepare recipe options that we put together, just for you!
While some of these recipes may contain eggs or dairy (i.e., lacto-ovo-pescatarian), they do not contain other animal-based proteins. So whether you’re a self-described pescatarian or just a real seafood lover, you will appreciate all of these meal options!
Whether they feature easy prep, (like the Wild Alaska Pollock en Papillote with Chimichurri Sauce), highlight bold flavors (Cod and Corn Chowder anyone?) or are simply deliciously fun (we’re looking at you Air Fryer Tempura Shrimp!)—one thing remains the same. These recipes all make seafood the star!
We’ve rounded up seven of our favorite recipes featuring different species, so get ready to create some elevated and easy pescatarian meals!
En papillote is French for “in parchment” and is an excellent (and easy) way to prepare Wild Alaska Pollock! Cooking fish in a pouch is like steaming without the steamer—locking in both flavor and nutrients. Simply wrap this mild white fish in foil for a mouthwatering weeknight dinner!
Breakfast lovers, trust us: You haven’t lived until you’ve tasted seafood avocado toast! In just 15 minutes, you could be sharing this simple, indulgent, and addictive dish with another lucky Seafoodie (or savor it all by yourself!).
Mac plus cheese always equals awesome! These easy Air Fryer bites are legendary among little seafoodies, but we guarantee your whole family will flip for their crispy, crunchy, cheesy goodness!
As far as pescatarian recipes go, this one is a lacto-ovo-pescatarian option that is incredibly delicious! Warm, creamy and decadent—the cod is perfectly complemented by cream and corn. Can you say comfort meal?!
It’s time to break out your Air Fryer! These golden-brown, crispy air-fried shrimp are a healthy and flavorful alternative to deep-fried seafood. And since shrimp is packed with protein, low in calories, and provides more than 20 vitamins and minerals—you can truly savor this tempting meal—guilt-free!
We loooove acorn squash with seafood! Its natural sweetness pairs smoothly with delicately flavored crab, and its hollow shape makes it a great edible bowl to hold a flavorful stuffing. Oh, and did we mention this recipe is gluten-free, lacto-ovo-pescatarian friendly and good for you too?!
Learn how to pan-sear sea scallops to perfection and make a beautiful lunch in only 15 minutes! We love the sweet-and-savory combination of seafood, fruit and fresh greens—lightly dressed with a simple homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
