               frozen
           2   tablespoons olive oil, divided
           1/2 cup finely chopped shallots (2 to 3 shallots)
           1/4 cup chopped cilantro

           2   cups dry couscous
           1/4 cup toasted almond slices

Mango Slaw:
           1   mango, peeled and sliced (about 2 cups)
           1/2 red bell pepper, finely sliced
           1/2 cup shredded carrot
           1/4 cup chopped cilantro
           1   tablespoon fresh lime juice
           1   teaspoon grated lime peel
           2   teaspoons orange juice
           1   tablespoon honey
           1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen fillets under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.

Heat heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of cod with 1 tablespoon oil.

Place in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep from sticking.

In the same pan, sauté shallots in 1 tablespoon oil just until soft, about 2 minutes. Add cilantro, ginger, 1 cup vegetable broth, sugar, garlic, saffron, cinnamon and allspice; cook until thickened. Meanwhile, prepare couscous according to package directions, using remaining vegetable broth as part of the liquid.

Slaw: In large bowl, combine mango, bell pepper, carrot and cilantro.

In separate small bowl, blend lime juice and peel, orange juice, honey and cinnamon. Pour dressing over slaw; toss.

For each serving: Place about 3/4 cup couscous on a plate; top with 1/2 cup mango slaw. Top with a cod fillet. Pour 1/4 cup shallot sauce over fish; garnish with 1 tablespoon toasted almonds.

1    tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1/2  teaspoon garlic salt
3    tablespoons olive oil, divided

     Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cook pasta in boiling water for about 8 minutes, or according to package instructions, until al dente. Add green beans during the last 3 to 4 minutes of cooking time.

Drain pasta and beans, reserving 3 tablespoons cooking liquid, then return pasta, beans and reserved liquid to pan. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, thyme leaves, garlic salt and 2 tablespoons olive oil.

While pasta cooks, rinse any ice glaze from frozen salmon under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.

Heat heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Brush both sides of salmon with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Place in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep from sticking.

Turn salmon over; cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 6 to 8 minutes for frozen salmon or 3 to 4 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.

Break into large chunks (removing skin, if any); add to pasta. Cook and stir gently over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with lemon wedges and thyme sprigs.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 10 minute
Servings: 4

1    cup clam juice
1/4  cup dry white wine
2/3  cup slivered fresh basil

1/2  tablespoon butter
     Lemon wedges, if desired

Bring clam juice and wine to a boil in a large (12-inch) nonstick pan; stir in basil and tomatoes. Cook down slightly. Season with salt and pepper; remove and keep warm.

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen fillets under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Coat pan with nonstick cooking spray, then heat butter over medium-high heat. Add sole fillets; cook 2 to 3 minutes until browned.

1    cup honey
1/2  cup low-sodium soy sauce

     Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Stir honey, soy sauce, olive oil and vinegar together in a glass (or non-reactive) bowl.

Place fillets in the bowl, skin side up, so that marinade covers all of the fish flesh. Cover and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours.

Heat oven to 450 degrees F.

Remove fillets from marinade and place on a nonstick (or spray-coated/foil-lined) baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast until fillets are golden to dark brown, about 7 to 9 minutes. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.

Healthy, Delicious Dining All Year Long

Eating seafood at least twice a week can help protect against heart disease, according to USDA 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. To keep hearts healthy, the USDA recommends eating eight ounces of seafood per week, which is equivalent to two four-ounce servings. Here are ways you can add delicious, heart-healthy seafood to your diet:

  • Choose seafood such as Alaska pollock, cod, halibut, sole, King and Snow crab, black cod and salmon, which offer nutritional benefits such as heart-healthy omega-3s.
  • Prepare seafood so it's lean and flavorful by using healthy cooking methods such as grilling, roasting or baking, and skipping calorie- and fat-laden methods such as frying, breading, or by adding rich sauces.
  • Add flavor using spices and fresh or dried herbs as seasonings.
  • Serve seafood with healthful sides, such as whole grains, roasted vegetables and crisp greens.
