Seafood has a variety of nutrients that contribute to our well-being and is also low in calories.

A great source of lean protein, seafood is good for our eyes, heart, brain, muscles, skin, and bones.

Generally, fatty fish such as salmon and mackerel are better as they contain fat soluble nutrients our bodies can absorb.

Raw shrimp should be firm, and their shells should always be translucent, greyish green, light pink, or a pinkish tan in colour.

Seafood is delicious, healthy, cost-effective, and easy to prepare as shown in the recipe below.
