A Dive Into Seafood Culinary Techniques for the Home Chef

Seafood is an important part of a healthy and balanced diet. It has many nutrients to keep your body working at its best. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend eating at least two servings (8 ounces or more) per week of a variety of seafood, which includes budget-friendly options like canned and frozen seafood. However, less than one in five Americans meet this goal, often citing insecurities of cooking fish and shellfish.

Seafood is the whole package your body needs for optimal wellness, and many prominent health organizations say to make seafood – fish and shellfish – the main protein food on your plate at least twice a week. One of the biggest challenges many consumers face is knowing how to select, prepare and cook seafood. There are numerous ways of cooking seafood to create incredibly tasty and nutritious meals. There’s also a wide range of seafood to choose from and a variety of cooking methods that can be applied to most types of fish and shellfish. 

There is ample opportunity to educate clients and patients on how consumers can ensure they are buying, preparing, and cooking seafood regularly. This webinar is designed to give dietitians, health professionals, and passionate home cooks the competence and confidence in cooking and serving more sustainable seafood, in a budget-friendly way.
