During Lent, many of the customers I meet in Price Chopper are very interested in finding new recipes for fish and seafood. While they are looking for these recipes for religious reasons, many other customers look for fish recipes for their health. Most people have heard that eating more fish and seafood is good for their health, but most of us have limited experience cooking it in a variety of ways.  At Price Chopper we want to be helpful and we have hundreds of easy to prepare fish recipes on our website, many are from our EatingWell collection and have been tagged for specific health conditions such as heart health, gluten-free, diabetes or weight loss appropriate.

Whether you are choosing to eat fish because it’s good for your soul, or good for your health, keep in mind these fish facts:

So go ahead and try a new fish recipe today!  I’ve included some meal ideas that feature this week’s sale items.
