It Ain’t Heavy, It’s My Dinner


Seafood is the main ingredient of some of the most sumptuous, mouth-watering foods on the planet. Think of a thick clam chowder or a perfect crab cake.

You don’t have to drown in butter and cream to enjoy rich food. Many recipes with wine and/or mustard have great flavor but aren’t swimming in calories and fat.

Typically, you’ll want to stick with a dry white wine for fish dishes. Meanwhile, mustard can add a lot of bite to whatever you’re making.

Check out this awesome recipe for baked shad glazed with Dijon mustard, capers and dill. Enjoy!
