(NAPSI)-If you're looking to trim food bills or enhance your health, adding frozen shrimp and fish to your diet twice a week could pay off.
Seafood can be a lean source of protein, high in important omega-3 fatty acids and rich in a variety of nutrients including vitamin D. Plus, whether you're choosing seafood to observe a meatless Friday or simply to meet the USDA's dietary guidelines, there are a number of affordable and easy-to-prepare options.
For instance, you can find a line of delicious frozen seafood products, including a new line of fish fillets and Tilapia Tenders--which are whole, hand-cut and lightly battered tilapia fillets--from SeaPak Shrimp Company. They're an affordable and convenient way to eat more seafood. They can also be used in a variety of recipes, including this one for a delightful tilapia salad:
