FAQs About Seafood

Some seafood is high in protein but low in fat. Eating a protein-rich diet with seafood included can help you manage your weight, reduce blood pressure, and fight off the effects of diabetes or reverse pre-diabetes. Seafood that is high in protein includes clams, shrimp, halibut, flounder, haddock, and cod. Seafood carries the bonus of being high in iron and vitamin B12, which maintains nerve and blood cell health. 

Consuming seafood while pregnant can help provide the mother and baby with needed nutrients. Fish and other seafood contain an oil called omega-3 DHA, which is crucial for babies to develop healthy brains. Aim to eat about two to three servings of cooked seafood weekly, ensuring the seafood is low in mercury. High levels of mercury can hinder a baby's development and may cause damage. Many specialists advise pregnant women to avoid shrimp and shellfish. Consult your healthcare provider for details regarding your individual needs and what is right for you. 

Freezing seafood is a great option to preserve it for a later date. You can freeze cooked fish for a longer time, but the flavor, quality, and texture of uncooked frozen fish may change after prolonged freezer storage. Pre-cooked varieties of seafood often hold up best when frozen. Aim to eat any frozen seafood within three months after freezing. You can then fill your cart and order more fish and other seafood via Instacart to keep your kitchen stocked with a good source of protein. 

Seafood can be reheated up to about 3-4 days after it's prepared. Reheating may enhance the flavors of some more savory dishes. Time the reheating to ensure the seafood is not overcooked to avoid a dish that's difficult to chew, with a dry or rubbery texture. Reheating in a conventional oven or a convection oven often provides the best results and can monitored easily. If you are using a microwave, place a wet paper towel or a cup of water inside along with the meal to help keep the seafood from becoming dry and losing texture.
