In a quest to find fast, easy, and nutritious seafood recipes, I stumbled upon the Family Focus Blog. It was created in 2010 by Nashville mom blogger Scarlet Paolicchi. I started following Scarlet and the Family Focus Blog and found many practical ideas and recipes.
What I enjoy about Scarlet's blog is that there is an emphasis on fostering strong family bonds and creating a positive home environment, support for parents in our journey, and offering inspiration and guidance for raising happy, healthy children.
Family Focus Blog has been named #3 in Cision PR's 50 U.S. Top Mom Blog list. Scarlet Paolicchi is the author of four books.
I asked Scarlet what her five favorite fast, easy, and nutritious seafood recipes and she sent this list over. Her posts include an interactive that allows you to adjust the recipe based upon how many you are feeding.
I highlighted the health benefits of each fast and easy recipe.
Sushi For Kids- Rolls and Recipes
Sushi with fresh fish or seafood is an excellent source of lean protein and omega-3 fatty acids beneficial for heart health and brain function. Sushi uses vegetables like seaweed, cucumber, and avocado, providing essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
Oven Baked Beer Battered Fish Recipe
Cod is a lean protein source, essential for building and repairing tissues, supporting muscle growth, and maintaining a healthy immune system. Cod is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, particularly EPA and DHA, linked to improved heart health, reduced inflammation, and enhanced brain function.
It should go without saying that oven baked is healthier than the typical fried version of beer-battered fish.
Recipe For Steamed Halibut
Halibut is a lean source of protein that supports muscle growth and repair, aids in weight management, and helps maintain satiety. Halibut is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health, reduce inflammation, and support brain function.
Spinach And Feta Stuffed Salmon Recipe
Salmon is an excellent source of high-quality protein essential for muscle growth, repair, and overall body function. Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, particularly EPA and DHA, linked to improved heart health, reduced inflammation, and enhanced brain function.
Easy Okra & Shrimp Po'Boy Sandwich Recipe
Shrimp is bottom-feeder seafood, not necessarily unhealthy, but better options exist. However, Okra is rich in dietary fiber, which aids digestion, promotes bowel regularity, and helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
The fiber content also contributes to feelings of fullness and may assist in weight management. Essential for dads like me!
