What about seafood?

So I got a little curious this morning when I was thinking about what kind of food topic I would blog about. I love seafood and I just had it the other day, so…. the thought came to my mind….. how healthy really is seafood? I decided I would look it up. I am going to give you some quick/fun facts about different kinds of seafood, and I will most likely provide you with a recipe or two that include seafood. usually people say that the most healthy meat for you to eat would be some sort of seafood, so let’s find out if that’s actually true. One website I found that talks about Good and Bad Seafood said that seafood can be considered a greener food, and that when thinking about meat that more times than not it is the smarter choice, but that all seafood is not created equal.  This website also said that many seafood products can be contaminated pollutants and other toxins and that the labels on seafood can often be misleading. Where your seafood comes from can also play a roll in how good or bad it is for you, so choose wisely and be sure to know the route it took to make it to your plate. Be selective with where you buy your seafood and where you go out to eat it, some looks can be deceiving.

Another website that I visited is one that ha almost any kind of Recipe you could think of, so there were a whole lot of seafood recipes. Y0u will have to  take a look at it yourself to find your favorite recipe, but I am going to talk to you a little bit about one that stood out to me. Now, I am a salmon lover, so just about any salmon recipe I find I am going to enjoy. This particular recipe is for Pepper-Honey Cedar Plank Salmon. How fantastic does that sound? For the sauce, you would want to simmer pineapple juice, soy sauce, honey, and a few other delicious ingredients to add extra good taste to your dinner. This particular salmon is grilled. Now I have had salmon on the grill, on the stove, or from the oven and all preparations sit well on my stomach, but something about grilling just really hits the sweet spot for me. This to me sounds like a great meal to prepare for a nice date. With it, I prefer a little asparagus and some mashed potatoes. I think this would probable be an ideal perfect meal for me. Take a look at the recipes yourself and enjoy creating your ideal meal. Remember: be smart in your seafood selection. In the end it is the greener and smarter choice over chicken or red meat, but don’t believe everything you hear about it.
