Many of us grew up with little exposure to a large variety of seafood dishes. This is unfortunate, because with so many ways to prepare, season,marinate and cook seafood (fish and shellfish),it can be incredibly delicious. There are also many sauces available to use with seafood, adding complimentary flavor. Another benefit of seafood is its plentiful nutritional value. Fish contains Omega 3 fats, which studies have shown can play a huge role in promoting good heart, brain and joint health. Fish is also high in valuable minerals, such as iodine and selenium, and provides Vitamins A and D, as well as zinc. Below you will find seafood recipes for shrimp, halibut, salmon, crab and tuna. You can also find seafood recipes throughout this website using the various recipe category links. I hope you join me in my quest for more delicious seafood recipes. I look forward to discovering new delicious recipes in the days to come.
