(ARA) - Whether dining out or making a night of it at home, it's easy to turn everyday meals into special treats by adding healthy and affordable options. Master Chef Tony Seta serves up tasty tips to makeover your next meal, at home or out on the town.
Dining Out* Grilling is an easy and delicious way to prepare healthy fish and seafood. Bonefish Grill, an upscale casual restaurant in 29 states around the country, specializes in wood-grilling and features an innovative menu of fresh, seasonal offerings.
* The best tasting food is always based on the freshest ingredients. Look for offerings that are timely and seasonal, such as Bonefish Grill's summertime King and Coho Salmon, served cedar plank style.
Eating In* Seta says a good rule of thumb is to try lighter red wines such as Sangiovese with delicate white fish and pair robust wines like Shiraz to stand up against heartier seafood and shellfish.
* Sauces and condiments can jazz up a meal and add a whole new flavor to salmon or chicken. Try warm mango salsa on top of grilled tilapia for a flavorful, healthy treat or a chimichurri sauce for a garlicky, fresh herb kick.
