To get the most out of seafood choices, MyPlate recommends choosing those that are higher in omega-3 fats and lower in mercury more often—like salmon, herring, sardines, Pollock, and trout. Eating a variety of seafood, knowing your proper portions, and getting creative in preparation are all ways to ensure that you reap the most benefits from this lean and healthy protein option.
