The 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend at least eight ounces—or 2-3 servings—of seafood each week. Lucky for you, it’s super easy to sneak in an extra serving (or two!) of this versatile and convenient food. Follow these tips to meet your weekly seafood needs AND save time in the kitchen. These simple swaps can help you enjoy two delicious servings of seafood each week without spending hours in the kitchen.
- Flip-Flop the Filets: When it comes to serving a filet, swap steak for fish. Broil fish filets for the entire family with tempting flavors like teriyaki, Baja chipotle or lemon-garlic in half the time that it takes to sear and broil your beef filet.
- Swap the Salads: If you forgot to thaw the chicken, dinner is going to be late! A tasty shrimp salad can be on the table in minutes – especially if you have a bag of cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp in the freezer. Just add your favorite salad and a vinaigrette!
