From Dish On Fish:

Bonjour, seafoodies!

Hailing from France, croquettes may sound fancy, but our Tuna Croquettes come together in just over 30 minutes! Full of healthy tuna and loaded with flavor, these patties are great for a snack, light meal or even a party.

We love tuna because it is convenient and full of essential nutrients, like protein, B vitamins, selenium and, of course, omega-3s. Omega-3 fatty acids like DHA and EPA lower chronic inflammation in the body, which helps to boost immunity and heart and brain health. In order to meet omega-3 needs, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends eating seafood 2-3 times each week.

Keep some pantry-perfect tuna (either pouched or canned) on hand to whip these up anytime. We added a lemon-pepper dipping sauce for a fresh zing to accompany this tuna recipe. So, let’s make some delicious tuna croquettes. Ooh-la-la!

Tip: Our Tuna Croquettes can be made ahead and kept in the fridge for up to 3 hours before cooking.

Tuna Croquettes with Lemon-Caper Sauce

Prep time: 10 minutes
Refrigeration time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes

Servings: 4

Suggested cooking tools: parchment paper, foil, plate or baking pan, sauté pan, 1 medium mixing bowl, 2 small mixing bowls, whisk, cutting board, knife, spatula

Ingredients – Tuna Croquettes

  • ½ cup whole-wheat or all-purpose flour (use gluten-free flour to make GF croquettes)
  • 1 cup panko, divided in half (use gluten-free panko to make GF croquettes)
  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning or paprika
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2-3 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 (5-oz) pouches or cans albacore tuna, drained well and flaked with a fork
  • 2 green onions or scallions, finely chopped
  • Optional: ¼ cup frozen sweet peas, thawed

Ingredients – Lemon-Caper Sauce

  • ½ cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 3-4 tsp. capers, drained
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil

Instructions

  1. In medium bowl, mix the first 8 ingredients listed (flour through mustard, including ½ cup of the panko). Add tuna, green onions and sweet peas (if using); mix well to combine. Divide mixture into 8 oval or round croquette patties and set on plate (or baking pan) lined with parchment paper. Cover plate with foil and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. Note: can make patties ahead of time and refrigerate them for up to 3 hours.
  2. While croquette patties chill in the fridge, make lemon-caper sauce by mixing remaining ingredients yogurt through garlic – but not the olive oil – in a small bowl; whisk until combined. If sauce needs thinning, add more lemon juice.
  3. Remove croquette patties from fridge. Heat olive oil in sauté pan over medium heat. While oil is heating, put remaining ½ cup panko into a small mixing bowl and coat all sides of each croquette with the panko.
  4. Place croquette patties in sauté pan and cook 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. (Can cook the patties in batches, if necessary.) Allow croquettes to cool for 2-3 minutes before serving. Top with the lemon-caper sauce.

Suggested accompaniments: mixed greens or baby arugula plus halved cherry tomatoes.

From Dish On Fish:

From the colorful beads to the lively music and unique culture, there’s nothing quite like Mardi Gras and the spirit of New Orleans. And when seafood is added to the mix, we are all about that Cajun flavor!

New Orleans’s location near the coast, has made it a perfect outlet to incorporate some of the most flavorful and nutritious seafood species into their recipes. From Shrimp Po Boys to iconic Low Country Boils, there’s a simple sophistication to each of their prized dishes. This style of food is so popular and has been known to attract visitors from all over the world that just wants a taste of the creole culture.

If you can’t make it to New Orleans this month, bring some Mardi Gras hoopla to your own house with these wonderful Cajun seafood recipes. We’ve got a roundup of New Orleans-inspired, Cajun-style recipes you are going to love.

February Is Heart Month: Take the Heart-Healthy Pledge and Eat Seafood 2x Per Week

February is all about things heart related including American Heart Month!

This is a perfect month to learn more about your heart, your risk for heart disease and how to prevent it. Increasing your physical activity, managing stress, sleeping better and quitting smoking are all ways that the American Heart Association suggests to help out your heart.

But don’t feel overwhelmed; even small changes can be good. A great place to start is by eating seafood two times a week. Eating two servings of fatty fish per week has been linked to a lower risk of heart attack and other cardiac issues. Seafood is loaded with essential omega-3s, protein, vitamins, and minerals. Taking the heart-healthy pledge and choosing to include more seafood in your diet is a perfect place to start caring for your heart.

Ideas for getting your seafood fix twice a week:

  1. Have seafood for lunch. Pack a lunch with canned tuna, salmon or sardines. These are quick and easy options that are great on a salad or sandwich for extra added protein and healthy fat.
  2. Change it up. Have fish you’ve never tried before. Some unique fish options include grilled Atlantic or Pacific mackerel, oven-baked Pollock and Ahi Tuna.
  3. Shellfish is Seafood Too! Clams, mussels, oysters and calamari all supply omega-3s and will help you reach your goal of seafood twice a week.
  4. Get creative with your seafood choices. If you have limited seafood options, change up the way you eat it! Try salmon patties instead of your typical piece of salmon, a shrimp stir-fry with colorful vegetables, grilled fish tacos with a tangy slaw or pan-seared cod in white wine sauce (recipe provided below).

Pan-Seared Cod in White Wine Sauce
Serves 4

All you need:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • ½ cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp fresh lemon zest
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the cod:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 ½ pounds fresh cod, cut into 4 fillets (or 4, 6-ounce fillets)
  • Salt and pepper

All you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F).
  2. For the white wine tomato basil sauce: Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add crushed red pepper flakes and garlic and sauté for 1 minute, or until garlic is fragrant. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they’re soft and blistering, but still hold their shape, 9 to 12 minutes. Add in the white wine, stir, and allow the mixture to come to a gentle simmer. Stir in the basil, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer the sauce into a bowl and set aside until needed.
  3. For the cod: Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Season both sides of cod with salt and pepper. Place cod in the oil and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Carefully flip the cod over and place the pan in the oven to continue cooking for another 5 minutes, or until it’s cooked through.
  4. Pour the white wine tomato basil sauce over the cod and serve at once.

From Dish on Fish:

We get it. Time is short, deadlines are looming and hunger has officially struck. If you don’t have time for a leisurely lunch during the day—but don’t want a boring brown bag (who does?)—try our easy and delicious seafood lunches that you can prep and pack in minutes.

Seafood for lunch? You bet. Not only is it an easy way to get in one of your 2-3 seafood meals each week, but seafood is loaded with healthy fats like omega-3s and protein. The omega-3s in seafood—DHA, and EPA—are important for many reasons, including boosting brain health and focus. Plus, seafood is a complete protein, to help keep your energy up throughout the day and prevent that post-lunch slump.

These lunches are packed with heart-healthy omega-3s and protein, which will help keep your energy up and prevent that post-lunch slump. In fact, these lunches are so delectable that you’ll be watching the clock all morning.

We are going to share an a-mazing Avocado Tuna Salad plus some other fun variations on seafood lunches.  These lunches are so delectable that you’ll be watching the clock all morning, eagerly awaiting your lunch break. Between the blend of flavors and fish options, you’ll never be bored with your brown bag lunch again. These dishes will also help you reach your goal of two seafood servings a week, to meet seafood recommendations.

Blackened Shrimp

Nothing compliments the taste of fresh shrimp, like mixing flavorful spices and herbs (to give it a real kick). This blackened shrimp is not only a great option for lunch, you’ll also turn to it all year as an easy (multi-day) meal prep option. Blackened shrimp is perfectly incorporated into a variety of different dishes throughout the week—like shrimp tacos! Get the recipe here.

 

Avocado Tuna Salad

No to-go lunch list is complete without tuna salad. However, this twist on the traditional dish is both tasty and creamy, you’ll be wondering how you ever made it any other way. Get the recipe here.

 

 

Easy Egg Crab Muffins

Egg bites have become the latest brunch craze, perhaps thanks to their flavor and the easy-to-eat shape. Unlike the ones you may have seen before, we promise you won’t find these egg crab muffin bites at any corner shop! Get the recipe here.

 

 

 

365 New Days, 365 New Chances

365 new days, 365 new chances. Don’t you love having that “fresh” start to the New Year? There’s something so refreshing about it. Do you set New Year’s resolutions? I’m sure you wouldn’t be surprised to know that, according to Inc. Magazine, the top three resolutions reported for last year were diet or eat healthier, exercise more, and lose weight.

Ideally, a new year presents a perfect time to review the last year and make healthier changes, but are you ready for a lifestyle change? Individuals who break down their resolutions into smaller, more manageable steps have a higher rate of accomplishing those resolutions. If you are searching for a healthier lifestyle, I suggest you start with the Healthy Heart Pledge.

The Healthy Heart Pledge is a commitment to yourself that includes the following components:

  • I pledge to eat two servings of seafood each week.
  • I recognize seafood is a healthy choice for me and my family. It is one of the leanest proteins with a variety of nutrients beneficial to heart and brain health.
  • I know I will help myself and my family improve our health by committing to eat at least two servings of seafood each week as recommended by the USDA HHS Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and supplement with omega-3s.

The Seafood Nutrition Partnership aims to reduce the risks of heart disease, improve baby brain wellness and increase memory for seniors by educating Americans about the health benefits of sustainable seafood and building awareness of seafood’s essential nutritional value.

See more at this link: http://www.seafoodnutrition.org/healthy-heart-pledge.html

Seafood is such a great source of lean protein—that’s just one reason why I suggest you start here for your resolutions. The American Heart Association also recommends eating fatty fish at least twice each week because of the health benefits to the heart, including decreased risk of arrhythmias (which can lead to sudden death), decreased triglyceride levels and perhaps a slightly lower blood pressure. There are also many studies looking at the benefits of omega-3 fats for brain and joint health, depression, and anxiety.

With all these health benefits it is imperative to figure out how to fit this selection into your weekly meal plan. Fatty fish incudes fish such as salmon, tuna, herring, mackerel and trout.

Let’s bring the SEA to your TABLE. Get creative with the ways you incorporate seafood into your diet so it doesn’t get cumbersome. Let’s start with my favorite fatty fish—salmon! Salmon is very versatile. If you’re tired of eating a simple salmon filet over and over again, this fish is one that can be switched up!

Try salmon the following ways:

  • Salmon pizza. It may sound odd to some, but it tastes delicious! For a healthy swap use a whole-wheat pizza crust and, instead of alfredo sauce, use fat-free cream cheese. Try the recipe here.
  • Salmon cakes
  • Salmon club with avocado: 2 slices of whole-wheat toast with grilled salmon and smashed avocado.
  • Basic blackened salmon—see the recipe below.

Basic blackened Salmon

Serves 4

All you need:

  • Blackened Seasoning (Recipe below or your favorite store-bought)
    • 3 tbsp paprika
    • 2 tsp onion powder
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 tsp sea salt
    • ½ tsp black pepper
    • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
    • ½ tsp oregano
  • Spray avocado oil
  • 4 (5 oz.) Responsible Choice salmon
  • Topping options:
    • Fresh guacamole
    • Tropical salsa
    • Bruschetta

All you do:

  1. Preheat oven to broil high.
  2. Combine blackened seasoning mixture
  3. Spray salmon filets with avocado oil. Heavily sprinkle blackened seasoning on filets.
  4. Broil for 10 minutes or until flaky.
  5. Add topping of choice.

Tips for Cooking with a Cast Iron Skillet

Pro Tip: Cooking with a cast iron skillet is not only for professional chefs. That’s right, rumors about the difficulties of cooking with cast iron are not true! We actually LOVE cooking seafood in a skillet because it brings out the savory flavor of seafood, while adding some extra nutrients. That’s why we’re sharing six easy cast iron skillet tips with you to make your experience a breeze.

The key to cooking with a cast iron skillet is to do some research and get cooking! Cast iron pans and seafood pair perfectly. In fact, this versatile cooking method makes it super-easy to eat seafood 2-3 times per week.

You’ll be surprised to find how simple it is to incorporate cast iron skillet cooking into your kitchen! If you need a good place to start, we recommend checking out our hearty Smoked Salmon Hash recipe that is simple to make and packed with a flavorful punch.

Below is a list of six essential cooking tips. We encourage you to start simple, but also keep in mind there’s a world of possibilities when cooking in cast iron.

6 Cast Iron Skillet Tips

  1. ‘Tis the seasoning
    When cooking with a cast iron skillet, the first step is to season it. Start by heating the pan. Once hot, add about one tablespoon of oil. After the oil cools, you’re good to get cookin’. This step is essential because cast iron cookware soaks up whatever is heated. Season the pan before cooking to avoid food from becoming a sticky hot mess.
  2. But first, preheat
    Before tossing in your ingredients, preheat your cast iron skillet. However, watch the level of heat! Cast iron skillets will crack if exposed to a lot of heat in a short amount of time. So, start off low and gradually increase heat to avoid going from cold pan to cracked hot pot quickly.
  3. Cookin’ low & slow
    Have you ever heard the saying “cooking low and slow?” Well, whoever said it must’ve been cooking with a cast iron skillet! Keeping the temperature down will ensure all flavor is absorbed without the risk of burning your masterpiece.
  4. Avoid plastic utensils
    Take a look at your favorite cooking utensils… are they made of plastic? If so, they may have to sit this one out. Cast iron skillets can get very hot, very quickly. We recommend opting for a stainless steel, wood or bamboo utensil to best protect your cookware… and your food.
  5. Never clean with soap
    Cleaning a cast iron skillet may seem like a chore and you may be tempted to dose the pan with soap, but think twice. Cast iron skillets should be cleaned immediately after use, while still warm. Just add a little hot water and scrub with a sponge or stiff brush. (Note: Don’’t soak the pan or leave in sink because it could rust.) Avoid using soap or steel wool so you don’t scratch the pan’s surface or remove seasoning. If bits are stuck to the pan, scrub the pan with a paste of coarse salt, like kosher salt, and water.
  6. Always dry and season skillet
    This final tip is often overlooked. Because cast iron is a metal, when it becomes wet it can rust and become ruined. The best way to preserve the lifespan of your cast iron cookware is to ensure it is dried thoroughly after each use and cleaning by wiping with a towel. Then, add a little vegetable or olive oil to the cloth or paper towel and apply a light coat to the inside of the dry skillet. Store in a dry place.

Now that you’re armed with an arsenal of cast iron skillet tips, we hope you’re eager to get in the kitchen and put your new skills to good use! The creative possibilities are endless. Consider adding a cast iron skillet to your Christmas list!
