Preparing your home with food and supplies? Canned and frozen seafood are great options and are easy to use in almost any dish! This is a great opportunity to update – or use – your ‘cantry’ and fridge with seafood staples. Did you know that cans and frozen food are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to get seafood in your diet?
Nutrition guidelines recommend eating seafood at least twice a week. Canned, tinned, and pouched seafood or frozen seafood are perfect ways to get at least one of these servings into a quick and easy meal or snack. There are many prepared seafood options that are as simple as heat and eat or open and eat. All of which are budget-friendly and a great addition to your weekly menu.

Here are more easy tips for canned and frozen seafood!
Simple Add Ons: Add a pouch of tuna to your salad at lunch. Add tuna or salmon to tacos, sandwich wraps or stir some tuna, salmon, or crabmeat into your favorite dip for a tasty treat. This works for kids, too! Add mild tasting fish to their favorite dish – for example, mix tuna into macaroni and cheese or into their sloppy joe mix.
Creative Substitutions: Seafood is an excellent replacement for beef, chicken or pork. Add clams or frozen fish to pasta sauce and try salmon or tuna in your stuffed pepper recipe.

While canned seafood is our go-to, it’s important to note that a well-stocked pantry of canned fruits and vegetables is also key when it comes to healthy eating. Fresh fruits and vegetables are harvested at the peak of ripeness and nutrition. You can incorporate both canned vegetables and seafood in many delicious easy recipes. Get cooking today!
