October is National Seafood Month, a time to celebrate the health benefits of choosing seafood twice a week. And the more variety the better, so top your table with sustainably caught or farmed-raised fish and shellfish including salmon and sardines, tilapia, cod and catfish, shrimp, scallops, and lobster (or as we say here in New England, lob-stah).
This is my biggest recipe roundup ever!
Stumped for seafood recipes your family will happily eat? Look no further than the 57 recipes I’ve gathered right here from some of my favorite food bloggers on the web! Scroll down for everything from Teriyaki Salmon cooked quickly in foil packets to Tuna Pasta Salad made with convenient canned tuna, whole grain pasta, and crunchy apples and celery.
SALMON: Salmon is my personal favorite, because I love the taste (personally, I prefer the flavor of farm raised) and the omega-3 fats, which are good for heart, eye, and brain health. Most people don’t get enough omega-3s in their daily diets, so choose salmon often to meet your daily needs.

Shrimp and Scallops: I’ve been on a bit of a frozen shrimp jag lately. I’ve used frozen farm-raised shrimp in a chowder (recipe coming soon), in grits, and in quesadillas. Versatile. Kid friendly. Convenient. And clearly, I’m not alone.

Tilapia, Cod, Halibut, and other fish: While salmon is the richest source of omega-3 fats, white fish like tilapia, cod, and halibut are also good sources. They’re mild in flavor, so even the pickiest eaters at your table may be willing to try it!
