Incorporating Seafood into Your Diet, Part 2
Okay. So you’ve decided to embark on the journey of incorporating seafood into your diet. Congratulations! There are hundreds of delicious recipes out there, but we’re going to give you a few solid starting points and the tools to explore at your own pace.
Start at the Beginning: Tuna Salad (And Beyond!)
Tuna salad is probably the most common and beloved of quick-and-easy seafood recipes. Not only is it a classic, but it can be tweaked and altered however your imagination sees fit! Your family probably has a classic recipe they swear by, or for a fresh twist you can try our Curried Cashew, Apple and Tuna Salad recipe.
You can also mix tuna into a pasta salad to create a more complex flavor and texture while adding protein. Our recipes for flavorful Tuna Pasta Salad and Grape, Walnut and Tuna Tortellini Salad were built from the ground-up with tuna in mind.
In addition to tuna salads and pasta salads, canned seafood lends itself beautifully to what we’ll call, for lack of a better term, “salad salad.” You know, with vegetables! We’ve come up with almost a dozen such recipes, from Creamy Caesar Tuna Salad to Smoked Salmon, Asparagus & Avocado Salad. Yum!
Seafood isn’t just for salads, sandwiches and appetizers. Canned clams, salmon, crab and tuna certainly have what it takes to play a more central role in your meal.
Take soup. Why not start by trying something simple and classic like Cheesy Clam Chowder? Then branch out: try our light and veggie-laden Spring Salmon Soup in the spring and our hearty, flavorful Tuna, Pepper and Potato Soup in the fall?
Finally, the main event: the main dish. We have so many beloved recipes in this category that it’s hard to tell where to start! If you’re a seafood beginner, pasta is a ‘safe’ place to start, such as our tasty Lemon Linguine with Salmon, easy-to-make Tuna Alfredo Pasta and delicious Four-Cheese Seafood Lasagna.
