Why Seafood is Best in The Summer

a close up of many different types of food

Summer means spending time outside in the warm weather making fun memories with loved ones and eating a lot of food. There is no better time to include seafood for your family get-togethers, barbecues with friends, picnics, and even weeknight dinners. 

If you want to feel like you're on vacation, start with lobster rolls, seafood boils, crab cakes, tuna steaks, etc. Here are some great reasons why seafood is best in the summer;

1. Delicious no-cook Recipes for the Whole Family

Seafood can easily be added to your favorite dishes to boost the flavor and nutrient value of your summertime meals. If you do not want to enter the kitchen, there are several no-cook fish recipes available and seafood that can be cooked on the grill.

2. Easy to prepare

Seafood cooks fast and absorbs your favorite tastes and seasonings, like in the recipe for Easy Shrimp Skewers, a light, and easy family supper. The kids especially enjoy helping make the kebabs and eating them off a stick.

3. Healthy diet 

Seafood delivers vital nutrients that strengthen immune health, and your family feels fantastic, from heart health to memory retention to improved sleep. Incorporating nutrient-dense seafood into one's diet can help to reduce inflammation while also lowering triglyceride and cholesterol levels. The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish can aid in decreasing inflammation. Seafood also contains immune-boosting vitamins A, D, zinc, selenium, and glutamine.

4. Making Memories

Trying out new seafood as a family can be a fantastic way to inject more enjoyment into meal planning. Consider having themed nights or dinners that are reminiscent of your favorite vacation destination.

5. A Wide Range of Flavors

Seafood's flexibility is difficult to match. It can be baked, grilled, fried, or eaten raw in some situations. Certain forms of white fish can be seasoned with your preferred herbs or prepared with butter for young picky eaters. Seafood cooks rapidly and may be cooked both indoors and out. The nicest part about seafood is the variety of flavors available. Seafood can be sweet or spicy, glazed or blackened, and used in salads, shish-kabobs, and other dishes.

6. Seafood Can Help Prevent and Relieve Depression Symptoms

According to studies, persons who consume fish daily are 20% less likely to suffer from depression than their peers. This is due to seafood's anti-inflammatory characteristics (due to its high DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acid content) as well as its capacity to stimulate serotonin generation and absorption.
