Hey seafoodies, we’ve “picked” some great seafood and apple recipes to keep the party going for National Seafood Month! Flavorful apples are plentiful right now and enhance the deliciousness of our favorite protein: seafood!
Eating a variety of seafood twice a week supports heart and brain health, and the old saying is that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” – so we are calling seafood and apples a perfectly healthy pair!
On this #SeafoodSunday, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite seafood recipes featuring apples as a savory ingredient. We can’t wait to try perfectly seasoned and grilled tilapia with green apples and guacamole; tender apples spooned over sweet scallops; seared salmon with caramelized apples and a hint of cinnamon; and smoky fish seasoned to perfection, topped with a sweet crunch of apple slaw.
We love these recipes because they combine some amazing flavor profiles from the apples — from delicately mild, to firm and full-flavored, with some added crunch and sweet-tart goodness – to the healthy protein from shrimp, tilapia, scallops and salmon. It will be easy to meal plan by keeping your freezer stocked with seafood this fall – and a bowl of fall’s favorite fruit on the counter!
Not only are these seafood and apple recipes deliciously addictive and easy to create, they’ll help nourish your mind and body. Best of all, they have the seafood flavors we crave all fall!
