It’s been a couple months, but we are back with some new recipes! Last month, our dietitian Jamie hosted her first Coastline Cooks show on DCTV. She made two dishes, Shrimp Scampi with Linguini and Tilapia with Mango Salsa. Seafood is a great health food that contains tons of nutrients, such as Omega 3s and vitamin B12. When paired with a whole wheat pasta, spinach, garlic, onions, or fruit salsa and vegetables, you’re only adding more nutrients.
Shrimp Scampi with Linguini
Preparation: Boil water for pasta; cook until just done/al dente. Drain and set aside, reserving a cup of the pasta water. Add spinach to pasta and cover, so spinach wilts. Heat olive oil and melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook for two or three minutes, or until onions are translucent. Add shrimp, then stir and cook for a couple of minutes until opaque. Squeeze in lemon juice and zest, and parsley.

Pan-Seared Tilapia with Mango Salsa
For the Mango Salsa:
Preparation: For the Tilapia: In a shallow baking dish combine flour, seafood seasoning, and pepper. Add the tilapia and lightly coat each side. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Shake off any excess seasoned flour and place in the skillet. Brown on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. For the Mango Salsa: Prepare by combining the mango, red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeno pepper in a bowl. Add the lime juice and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and toss well. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

We hope you enjoy these two dishes!
