For as long as I can remember. You couldn't drag me out of it when I was a kid growing up along the coast of Australia, and I'm still at my happiest with a fishing rod in my hands or a surfboard under my feet. Maybe that's why I love seafood so much. Not only is it fun to catch and delicious to eat, but it's good for you, too.

Fish is a high-nutrient, low-calorie food. It's a wonderful source of protein, low in saturated fat, and high in omega-3s, which are great for heart health and can even improve your mood. Fish is also a fantastic source of vitamins, particularly vitamin D. Essentially, fish is the most delicious "diet" food out there.

Even better, fish fillets are a weeknight lifesaver because they cook up in just minutes. After years of playing around with different toppings and sauces, I've figured out a few ways with seared fish that will put a tasty, good-for-you dinner on the table in a flash. Join me in my love affair, why don't you? There's plenty of fish in the sea.
