Clean Eating Seafood and Fish Recipes

Fish is a fantastic, low fat, high protein, health-busting option for meals, and it fits perfectly into a healthy diet.  By choosing fish over meat, you leave out saturated fat, which clogs arteries.  Eating seafood also means you dodge other high sodium and health damaging perservatives that can be found in processed meat, such as bacon, ham, sausage etc.  Fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, help our bodies to fight against cardiovascular diseases, many types of cancer, dementia amongst other illnesses.  It is also high in vitamins B and D, and selenium.

Prawns generally inhabit oceans, and they live up to 50m depth.  They are found in most countries and cuisines around the world.  The same as the other fish mentioned in this post, they are high in protein, low in calories and fat.  However, they are, unlike the above-mentioned fish, high in cholesterol, but they are high in the 'good' cholesterol, and they lower the 'bad' cholesterol in our bodies.

Prawns are quick and easy to cook, as they don't need much time or oil until they are ready to eat.  Prawns are an excellent source of calcium.
