It’s becoming more widely known and appreciated that food tastes best when it’s in season and buying domestically is important for a number of reasons. That goes for fruits, veggies and one of our biggest assets here in South Louisiana, Gulf seafood.
We are lucky to live in a region with one of the biggest sources of some of the best-tasting seafood in the world. Louisiana is one of the largest suppliers of seafood in the nation. The Gulf Coast produces 70 percent of the nation’s oysters, 69 percent of domestic shrimp, is a leading producer of domestic hard and soft-shell blue crabs and represents 20 percent of all domestic seafood consumed in the U.S.

In recent years, people have become more conscious of healthy eating and want to eat lighter foods. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least two times per week. This means two servings of 3.5 ounces of cooked fish or about ¾ cup of flaked fish.
Fish is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids and it’s usually low in saturated fat. Eating fish is believed to reduce the risk of dying of heart disease, and a recent study found eating baked or broiled fish weekly boosts brain health.
