Most Americans don’t eat enough fish and miss out on the health benefits of seafood, especially omega-3 fatty acids. Seafood omega-3s are especially valuable for pregnant women, infants, and children because of the documented brain development and eye health benefits. U.S. News & World Report reached out to SNP to learn the best ways to purchase and prepare it.
“People tend to feel intimidated when it comes to cooking seafood at home, but it’s quite easy,” said Jessica Miller, SNP’s nutrition communications manager, a nonprofit organization that is addressing the barriers to eating seafood, including a lack of confidence in buying and preparing seafood.
“As with most seafood, you do not need a lot to make it taste delicious,” added Miller, who recommends a simple preparation of a little oil, salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lime.
