It’s no secret that we love seafood, for many reasons. One of our favorite things about seafood is the fact that it’s incredibly versatile and pairs perfectly with so many seasonings and flavors. Tender proteins like fish benefit from marinades because seasonings help bring out the delicious natural flavors of the protein and also keep it from drying out. The best part is, it doesn’t take long for fish to be infused with flavor! Take advantage of seafood’s versatility by pairing it with fruit, vegetables, spices and herbs, which are bursting with flavor and nutrients. Fruit and vegetables provide ample amounts of vitamin C, potassium, dietary fiber and antioxidants. Herbs and spices contain beneficial phytochemicals that help to reduce inflammation. Use any or all of these in seafood marinades and sauces to boost flavor and nutrients. Juices from lemons, limes and oranges are often used in seafood marinades, with good reason. The acid in citric juices help to denature—or break down—the protein in seafood, which causes little holes in the meat to help marinade infuse the fish or shellfish. Word of caution: The acid can actually start to “cook” the seafood. So, you only need to marinade seafood briefly and […]
