As someone who didn't eat much fish growing up, I have to say I find it strange and wonderful that my kids all love fish. They actually adore all types of seafood! They'll eat fish, and shrimp, and crab, and squid - even octopus! Having discovered my own deep and abiding love for fish in recent years (although, I've always been a fan of shellfish), we try to make it a regular at the dinner table.
This preparation of Roasted Tilapia with Bruschetta Topping is currently my very favorite way to eat fish. You can actually prepare this with any mild white fish (or hey, maybe even some not so mild ones), and it just sings. All those light and bright flavors come together for a meal that is equal parts indulgent and guilt free.
A little bit of butter and some seasoned salt goes a long way. Throw it in the oven for just a few minutes and you have a gorgeous light and flaky piece of fish that goes beautifully with fresh cut tomatoes, basil, and balsamic vinegar.
I like to serve mine over a bed of baby spinach leaves, but you could do rice, pasta, or even toss it all in a tortilla for an Italian inspired fish taco! It's hard to go wrong when you're working with great ingredients.
Here's some great news! Seafood Nutrition Partnership is sponsoring a recipe sweepstakes that wants participants to take the Healthy Heart Pledge!
The Healthy Heart Pledge is a promise to yourself and your family to eat at least two servings of seafood each week while supplementing your diet with omega-3s, as recommended by the USDA HHS Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Making this change to your diet can improve your overall health and may reduce your risk of heart disease. Did you know that eating seafood twice a week can reduce your risk of dying from heart disease and eating seafood two to three times per week reduces the risk of death from any health-related cause!

A total of ten winners will be randomly selected in accordance with the Sweepstakes Schedule to win a $250 gift card. You can submit one entry per day.
