Crispy Flounder-Asparagus Bundles 

Feb 17, 2022 | Main Meals

Fish is one of the healthiest and easiest proteins to prepare. Whether you’re observing Lent or not, fish is a delicious part of any weekly meal. The trick to making a delicious fish dish includes purchasing fresh, seasoning well and cooking safely to just the right temperature (145 degrees F).

PURCHASING TIPS

  • Avoid fish with a “fishy” odor, discoloration, darkening or drying around the edges
  • Fish eyes should be clear and slightly bulging
  • Whole fish and fillets should have firm, shiny flesh that springs back when pressed
  • The Omega-3’s found in fish contribute to a healthy heart, fight inflammation and reduce your risk of having a stroke!
  • Steamed, grilled or broiled; many fish can be prepared in under 20 minutes! Sea bass, cod, flounder, salmon and shrimp are quick and easy.  
  • Season fish and shellfish simply, with olive oil, salt and pepper you can’t go wrong!
