Blackened Salmon Sandwich

Blackened salmon is great in a sandwich with a spread of mashed avocado and low-fat mayonnaise plus peppery arugula leaves, cool tomato slices and zesty red onion. We grill our Cajun-style salmon so there is no need for any added cooking oil. Catfish makes an excellent stand-in for the salmon but you'll want to use a grill basket if you have one to keep the fish from breaking apart.

Grilled Shrimp Cocktail with Yellow Gazpacho Salsa

Yellow tomatoes have a lower acidity than their red cousins and several varieties are among the earliest in the season to ripen. Here they combine with cool cucumber and yellow bell peppers in a refreshing salsa. Grilled shrimp make this dish a more full-flavored and elegant version of shrimp cocktail.

Bouillabaisse with Spicy Rouille

Mussels with Italian Turkey Sausage, Tomato & Basil

When mussels and turkey sausage meet up with white wine and tomato, pure kitchen alchemy occurs in this quick dinner recipe. The broth that brews at the bottom of the pot will make you feel that a piece of crusty bread (for soaking, of course) is your new best friend.

Poached Cod & Green Beans with Pesto

Using just one skillet, this easy fish recipe cooks cod right on top of fresh green beans and uses the same pan to make a flavorful sauce. The result is perfectly flaky fish, tender-crisp vegetables, a savory pan sauce and very little cleanup.

» Poached Cod & Green Beans with Pesto


Some varieties of seafood, such as mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines, albacore tuna and salmon, are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and most seafood is high in selenium and low in saturated fat, making it a heart-healthy protein choice. We've opted for sustainable choices of fish and seafood, and there are plenty of options in our healthy seafood recipes! If you’re not a fish-lover but want to start incorporating it into your menu, start with milder varieties like haddock, halibut and mahi-mahi and balance the taste with a robust sauce or acidic elements like lemon juice. If there is a stronger-flavored variety that you are hesitant to try, soak the fish in milk to neutralize some “ocean” flavors. If you are already a seafood lover, experiment with different types of seafood, like mussels, crab, clams and shrimp, in your favorite seafood recipes.
