Health experts suggest that we should make seafood (fish and shellfish) the main protein food on our plate twice a week. Eight ounces a week of a variety of seafood should be incorporated into a healthy diet, according to the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Although most Americans meet the guidelines for sufficient consumption of protein, studies unfortunately show that almost 90% of Americans do not meet the recommendation for seafood as a sub-group. Replacing processed or high-fat meats with seafood can help lower intakes of saturated fat and sodium, nutrients that are often consumed in excess of recommended limits.

Here are some suggestions to fuel your family this February:
