Comfort food is made healthy and convenient in this One Skillet Skinny Seafood Alfredo! With only 5 minutes of prep work and pasta that cooks right in the pan, you can feed your family a fast, nutritious, and protein-packed easy dinner — even on your busiest nights!
Thanks to Louis Kemp Crab Delights® for sponsoring today’s post and for offering delicious and healthy seafood that makes mealtime simple!
Our family LOVES seafood and it’s such a healthy source of protein to incorporate into our meals. That said, we live in rural Central Virginia — not exactly a prime location for sourcing fresh-caught fish on a regular basis. In fact, there’s not even a seafood counter at the one grocery store in our county! That’s why I regularly rely on Louis Kemp Crab Delights as a readily-available, delicious, and nutritious seafood option for quick meals.
Made from Alaska Pollock and real snow crab, the Crab Delights are low-calorie, high in omega 3’s, gluten-free, and ready-to-eat. Alaskan Pollock is a highly sustainable Alaskan caught whitefish and commonly used in fish sticks. It’s a great mild-tasting, slightly-sweet seafood that the kids love, too! Plus, it’s really versatile and a nice way to add protein to any dish from sandwiches, pasta, dips, and more.
In this recipe, an 8-ounce package of flake style Louis Kemp Crab Delights is one of my best short-cuts to get a healthy, family-friendly dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes!
And if it’s a busy night and we’re worried about making dinner FAST, the last thing we want to deal with is a sink full of dishes at the end of the night, right? That’s why I’m on a constant mission to master the art of the one dish/one skillet/one baking tray/one pot meal! In my opinion, it’s the only way to go!
This particular One Skillet Skinny Seafood Alfredo is a perfect way to satisfy your family’s craving for rich, creamy, carb-tastic comfort food — in a completely guilt-free way!
