Nutrient-dense, halibut is low in fat and high in protein. It’s also rich in B vitamins, potassium, and essential Omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower blood pressure as well as bad cholesterol.

Spice-Crusted Tuna Steaks

When you’re looking to improve your diet and eat healthier, eating fish becomes a priority. This Spice-Crusted Tuna will set you on the right path to nutritious and delicious dinners.

Not only does the oil unlock the spices’ flavors, it also boosts the monounsaturated (good) fat content, which delivers Omega-3 fatty acids. Besides being a source for good fat, tuna is also high in protein, as well as B vitamins and the mineral selenium, which helps to protect red blood cells.

Working with fresh clams shouldn’t be intimidating. For this recipe you want tender, sweet littleneck clams. Because the clams are alive when you buy them, toss any with open or broken shells, an indication they’re dead. Store them on ice, then before using, place the clams in a bowl of cold water, scrub each one, and give a final rinse in a colander. And no fancy preparation is necessary. Simply steaming the clams in wine and broth with a side of crispy, buttery bread yields the most delectable dinner.
