#Seafood123: Super Servings

The 2016 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that we eat seafood 2-3 times each week. Most Americans don’t even come close to meeting that recommendation. Yet, it’s so easy to fit 2-3 seafood meals in each week!

Seafood is a “yes” food—delicious, versatile, easy to prepare and nutritious. But, do you know what a serving of seafood looks like? Let us show you how easy it is to get your 2-3 servings of seafood each week.

Fish – 3-4 ounces (for most varieties)
Shrimp – 4 large
Clams – 12 small
Oysters – 12 medium
Scallops – 6 large or 14 medium

Bon appétit!

    Lately everybody I know is telling me that tilapia is not safe to eat.
    I see some of your recipes call for it, what can I substitute with.
    Love your ideas.

      Hi Eleonora. Thank you for being a Dish on Fish reader, and we are happy to hear that you like the blog! Tilapia is a very nutritious and delicious seafood that is sourced sustainably and is safe to enjoy. In fact, it’s the perfect option to add to your weekly menu! You could also try cod for a similar taste. Seafood is incredibly versatile, and many recipes can be customized based on your preference.
