Quick Tips:

Safety
Cooking time will vary depending on the size and thickness of the filets.
Never eat seafood that is raw, or not cooked through. The internal temperature of fish should be 158F or 70C degrees and for shellfish 165F or 74C degrees.

Nutritional Highlights:

Avocado
Loaded with potassium and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats as well as fiber, folate and vitamin C. Avocados help in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.

Scallops
High in selenium, zinc, potassium, iron and magnesium, scallops are wonderful for the nervous system and heart health.
