Use it in place of chicken
One of the easiest ways to satisfy the need for a substantial protein-rich dinner is chicken. Roasted, fried or sautéed, chicken is a go-to meal for most people. But did you know that fish can be used in any of these dishes and can reduce cooking time as well? Furthermore, adding some variety to your choice of meals can ensure that you get a full selection of healthy nutrients.
Are you looking for simple but delicious ways to prepare your meals? You can pan-fry halibut and serve with a lemon-yoghurt sauce or sauté shrimp in garlic and butter. A simple and delicious meal can be made in under 20 minutes. Serve this alongside veggies and whole grains and you have an easy and healthy meal with minimal preparation needed.
Jazz up your salads
We all know that salads are a great way to make sure you are getting a proper intake of healthy veggies. But without some protein, you will be hungry again before long. And what is the point of eating healthy if you will only be hungry again in a short time?
You can add some bulk to your salads by adding lean protein like fish. Steamed and sautéed shrimp or leftover fish from the night before will add some heft to your salad and make it a full meal. If you are looking for a relatively simple way to accomplish this, try a premade salad or open a StarKist, Salmon Creations and Lemon Dill Pouch. This will give your meal a little extra something that can fuel your work, thought and play until your next meal. If you like whole smoked eel then see here for some high-quality products.
Add it to casseroles
Casseroles are a lifesaver when it comes to preparing the food you need for an empowering busy life. By the same measure, they can be a bit boring. But only until you find some ways to make your casseroles your own by shaking things up a bit. One great way to add flavour and life to a creamy casserole is with fish.
Shrimp can be cleaned and prepared to be prepared with all your favourite baked pasta. You can even get buck wild with mussels, clams and other shellfish. Just add these exciting ingredients to your casseroles in the last few minutes of cooking. Once more, here is where a pouch of StarKist, Tuna Creations and Lemon Pepper can add flavour and life to your meal plan.
Switch up your tacos
Most people will grab a pack of ground beef when preparing for taco night, but you can improve your culinary capacity and create an exquisite and traditional feast by swapping out ground beef with fish. Season your choice of fish — shrimp, scallops, filets of salmon are all great choices — with your favourite taco seasoning. Sauté until the fish is cooked thoroughly and add to your tacos along with lettuce tomatoes, salsa brava and crumbled queso fresco.
You can take things to a new level by adding fish sticks to your tacos. The perfect meal to feel like you are sitting on the tropical sands of Puerto Vallarta getting ready to swim in the pristine blue waters of this tropical paradise.
Doll up your dips
If you like to entertain, chips and dips are probably one of the most popular snack foods to serve to your guests. Adding fish to your recipes can make your dip a little healthier and far more delicious. You can add chopped clams to onion dip, crab meat and spinach to artichoke dips and chopped shrimp in your favourite salsa or pico de gallo. Yes, you can even eat this for breakfast!
