Seafood, Salsa and Seriously Good Pairings

January 11, 2016 – After a holiday season of heavy meals and hearty indulgences (pie for the win!), lightening up by bringing seafood to your dinner table can be just the ticket. Seafood is low in calories compared to other protein-rich foods, and is a good source of vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids, too.

While a simply seasoned fish fillet makes a quick and healthy meal, seafood makes an even better main course when it’s been jazzed up with fresh produce for color, texture and depth of flavor. Not sure where to get started? The beauty of salsa is there’s really no wrong way to make it! Here are a few fruity ideas to inspire your next seafood soiree:

Pineapple SalsaGrilled fish with mango salsa and sauteed spinach.
A delicious accompaniment to white fish such as tilapia, pineapple salsa is crisp, tangy and simple to make. Dice up pineapple and add in your favorite salsa fixings, such as cilantro, bell pepper or onion.

Strawberry-Basil Salsa
This sweet salsa is the ideal pairing for grilled salmon. Combine strawberries and finely sliced basil leaves with red wine vinegar, olive oil or honey.

Habanero Salsa
Spicy habanero salsa spooned over fish tacos – can you say perfection? Try adding diced tomatoes or mango to cut the heat

Avocado-Mango Salsa
Perfect with heartier fish like halibut or salmon, avocado-mango salsa is both refreshing and colorful. Use lime juice for added zing.
