On Super Bowl Sunday, fans can beat the spread – of waistlines – with healthy and flavorful recipes and a touch(down) of Florida freshness.

For a fun and healthy Super Bowl Sunday, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam is offering four quick and easy meals and snacks to prepare just before kickoff.

Each dish features delicious seafood, fresh fruits and vegetables produced here in the Sunshine State. Many of the products come with the “Fresh From Florida” label available at local grocery stores, helping everyone be ready for the big game.

“If you’re looking for a few quick and simple recipes for Sunday’s big game, these ‘Fresh From Florida’ recipes are real winners, and they feature produce grown by Florida’s farmers and seafood caught in Florida’s waters,” Putnam says.

Here is this year’s “Fresh From Florida” lineup:

Florida Corn, Tomato and Avocado Salsa

Sweet Corn and Black Bean Enchiladas


Florida Pink Shrimp Boil

Taco-Stuffed Florida Bell Peppers
