5 Totally Jawesome Recipes To Eat Like A Shark

While humans and sharks don’t necessarily have a lot in common—after all, sharks do live in the ocean—there is one important lesson we could learn from them: eating fresh seafood is a must.


From fish and mollusks, to crustaceans and more, sharks eat it all—and for good reason. That’s because seafood of all kinds, namely fish, crab and shrimp, offer vital nutrients, with low calories and ample protein. And you don’t have to have a shark-sized appetite (eating up to 66 pounds in one meal) to enjoy all the benefits of seafood.

So, in honor of Shark Week, it’s time to update your weekly menu with a few of these fin-tastic recipes. Even if you don’t consider yourself a fish lover, there are plenty of options that are 
dog-shark friendly (they eat crab) 
and carpet-shark approved (they eat shrimp).

Sea-sational Crab Cakes: This easy recipe takes less than 10 ingredients to make, and you’ll get plenty of protein, omega-3 fatty acids and selenium (thanks to the crab), plus vitamin C and B6 (thanks to the bell pepper). And bonus, you can enjoy a serving of 2 cakes, topped with avocado sauce for less than 250 calories! Can we get a high fin?

Ginger Shrimp Bites: You’ll be dying to take a bite out of these killer, open-faced sandwiches. With just 7 mouth-watering ingredients, you can enjoy plentiful protein, selenium, vitamin B12 and phosphorous (thanks to the shrimp), and a hearty dose of gingerol (found in ginger), which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Jaw-dropping Crab Munchies: You won’t be able to just nibble these deliciously decadent appetizers. Inside of these chomp-worthy starters, you’ll find nutrient-packed crabmeat, along with mushrooms, which provide over a dozen vitamins and nutrients. And you can top them with parsley—or should we say seaweed?

Deep Blue Sea Scampi Pizza: It’s pizza, enough said. But in addition to all of the things that make pizza such a staple, there are a few ingredients that will really make splash: shrimp, ricotta cheese and roasted garlic. With just 6 ingredients, plus a pre-made pizza crust, this recipe is sure to start a feeding frenzy.

Dill-icious Surf Sauce: While sharks think this sauce goes swimmingly with salmon, you can use it to top any of your favorites. Made with sour cream, cucumber and dill (plus horseradish and lemon for a little extra bite), this sauce serves up potassium, flavonoids, polyphenols and water (which isn’t just important for gills).
