Healthy Cooking Methods for Fish and Seafood

As some of the most popular sources of protein in the world, fish and seafood are enjoyed in nearly every culture around the globe. In general, fish and seafood are quite healthy, as they are rich in nutrients, such as iodine and vitamin D, and are a great source of protein. Fish, in particular, can also be high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. For those looking to incorporate fish and seafood into a weight-loss plan, there are plenty of lower calorie options to choose from.

The preparation method can also make a world of difference when it comes to calorie count. Breading and frying fish, for example, can increase the amount of calories drastically.
