There's a reason your Hy-Vee dietitian recommends eating seafood twice a week, and especially salmon. It's rich with heart-healthy omega-3s, high in protein, and really delicious. But knowing how to season and prepare it is key. The good news is, it's easier than you think.
When you see the Responsible Choice logo on Hy-Vee seafood, that means it's rated as either a "Best Choice" or "Good Alternative" by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program, or is certified to an environmental standard benchmarked to these ratings. Our Responsible Choice logo guarantees the species are abundant in the ocean or are farmed in an environmentally safe manner.
