In case you are reading this and don’t know me personally, I’ll let you in on the fact that I’ve happily been a pescatarian for the past few years. This means that I no longer eat meat, but I do happily gobble up almost any seafood that I can find and cook up. If you’re a true vegetarian (or vegan) then this one’s not for you, but if you’re like me or eat everything under the sun, The Seafood Trap is a great way to learn more about tasty treats like shrimp and salmon and how to prepare them in style. Whether you’re a red-meat lover or a pescatarian like me, seafood can be a great way to get some super lean and light protein into your diet. I think it’s especially good in the summer weather with light and citrusy sauces and marinades.
For shrimp lovers, try changing things up with a yummy shrimp burger or Mexican-inspired cilantro-lime shrimp tacos. Yum! A good seafood taco will get me every time, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. For fun ways to do fish that are a little different than what you might be used to, give a Moroccan-style fish tagine a whirl or use leftover salmon to freshen upa lunch salad. If you haven’t been turned on to catfish yet (it’s good, I swear!), you could whip up some blackened catfish with mango-avocado salsa for a great summertime dish.
While I do love my seafood, I’m also a girl on a budget, so I can’t buy out the tasty shrimp kabob section at New Season’s every night. Another Seafood Trap find gives a little more insight into whether you can get good quality seafood on a budget.
