Looking to get more seafood in your diet or need ideas for Fridays the next couple weeks? We’ve rounded up some of our favorite ways to eat this nutrient-rich protein that the whole family will love!
Our Real Life
Love, love, loved seeing Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain (one of our favorite cookbooks!) staring back at me at the school book fair! She has done an amazing job taking this lifestyle mainstream, and we couldn’t be happier for her. Her recipes are always dependable and so good!
We celebrated the birth of this funny, caring, and independent (too cool for us, really) kid this week! With the chaos of getting our house ready to put on the market, we nearly forgot about the cake for his big day – oops!
Luckily we had a LOT of help with Simple Mills cake mix and chocolate frosting (so good, and very surprisingly tastes a lot like the really unhealthy canned version you grew up eating!). The cake came together super fast, we covered it in Sunspires, and our poor middle child was happily none the wiser!
It’s so wonderful to see better options available everywhere. Finding all these “cleaner” cake-making ingredients locally wouldn’t have been possible 6+ years ago when we started Paleo. We’ve come so far as a society – they had these at Wegman’s!
Our Favorite Ways to Eat More Seafood!
We always keep our pantry stocked with canned seafood- especially Safe Catch Tuna (every single tuna is tested for mercury levels!) and Wild Planet Pink Salmon. It is the perfect protein for quick lunches or dinners. What recipes? See below – but pan fried patties, baked balls, and cold mayo salads are our favorites!
And what is seafood if you don’t have REALLY GOOD mayo to go with it?! We mix Chosen Foods Mayo with canned tuna or salmon to top salads with. We make homemade tartar sauce for crab balls and fried fish. And we use it in the dressing for our favorite shrimp salad (recipes below!).
One other “item from the sea” that has become a staple in our house is Kelp Sea Salt. It is a great multi-purpose seasoning that I love sprinkling on things like salads, rice, or vegetables. It’s full of minerals and umami!
