Easy Seafood Cooking Tips for Busy Families
- Cook it from frozen: Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute offers a series of tasty recipes called Cook It Frozen!®. Frozen seafood can be prepared in as little as 10 minutes. You can also stock up on frozen seafood when it’s on sale.
- Stock up on canned seafood: When you’re at the grocery store, grab canned, tin, or pouch seafood (especially when on sale). Canned seafood often offers a more reasonably priced option and can be tossed into salads or pasta for an easy meal.
- Cook it once, eat it twice: Try doubling recipes to get ahead on cooking and have a dinner or lunch ready for later in the week. Recipes that freeze well, such as stews and casseroles, are great to double. Also, consider cooking an extra piece of fish to use on a salad or in a sandwich the next day.
Grab-and-go options: the easiest cooking tip of all is to grab pre-prepped seafood from your local grocery store to just bring home and heat!
