Shrimp is also exquisite marinated in citrus, chiles and other fresh flavors to create ceviche, a popular dish from Peru. Or spice things up with Thai flavors like garlic, honey, lime and fresh ginger.


Preparation Tip: Ensure salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145°. When done, it will transition from translucent to opaque and gently flake apart with the touch of a fork.

Preparation Tip: Scallops demand careful attention. To achieve that coveted crisp, pat scallops dry before searing over medium-high heat.

Flavor Pairings: Elevate the subtle sweetness of scallops with a symphony of citrus and sweet flavors. Or try lemon or lime zest, orange juice, coconut oil and soy sauce – perfect ingredients to make your scallops shine.

Flavor Pairings: Lemon, butter and fresh chile peppers are great ways to flavor snapper. Enjoy over a bed of red pepper, avocado, jalapeño and a mixture of parsley, basil or cilantro.
