This is because salmon is so good for us and we love that fish and seafood cook so quickly. 1 Simple and Easy Baked Salmon Verywell / Alexandra Shytsman This foolproof and extremely easy method for baking fish has quickly become one of our very favorite cooking techniques. The salmon (or other fish) comes out moist and flavorful every single time. 2 Seared Scallops Maureen Vollum / Getty Images Not just a recipe: this is a complete guide to selecting, preparing, cooking, and serving scallops. Did you know that scallops are not only delicious but good for our hearts and maybe our brains? They also have plenty of vitamin B12, choline, and lots of minerals. 3 Low-Carb Shrimp and Grits Lauri Patterson / Getty Images Can grits really be low-carb? Yes! Make them with almond meal, just as you would regular grits. Now you can dress them up and make these South Carolina-inspired shrimp and grits with yummy ingredients like...bacon, of course. 4 Low-Carb Coconut Shrimp Laura Dolson It's rare for low-carbers to eat anything breaded and fried, but we can make an exception in this case, as the breading has no regular starchy flour at all, but uses coconut flour instead. Doesn't that make sense for Coconut Shrimp? 5 Zesty Grilled Shrimp Lauri Patterson/E+/Getty Images What cooks in three minutes on a hot grill? Shrimp! We give you instructions so they won't be overcooked and rubbery, and this zesty marinade will liven them up. 6 Crustless Smoked Salmon Quiche TravelingLight Crustless quiches of all kinds are easy to make (crust=trickier and more time-consuming), and this version is elegant and works for any meal (it's great for brunch). 7 Shrimp Scampi Verywell / Alexandra Shytsman Shrimp Scampi is so easy to make and so good to eat! We like to serve it with cauliflower rice. 8 Salmon Salad razmarinka/Istockphoto Tired of tuna? Salmon is even better for you, anyway. Serve salmon salad in lettuce wraps; just take a head of lettuce and start peeling off leaves and putting this salad inside.
