With many people celebrating Lent this time of year, I thought today it would be great to talk fish. Growing up in New England, I love virtually all seafood. We ate it all the time growing up and it still makes up most of my favorite meals. However since it isn’t always everyone’s favorite, today I wanted to share some quick, delicious, and healthy fish recipes that almost anyone will love. What are your favorite fish dishes?
1. Blackened Zucchini Wrapped Fish, 198 calories, 4 PointsPlus®
This recipe is surprisingly simple and is one of my favorites when I have company or want a “fancy” dinner. The whole thing comes together in under 15 minutes and can be made using virtually any fish.
2. Crispy Baked Fish Sticks with Homemade Tartar Sauce, 261 calories, 6 PointsPlus®
Liz over at The Lemon Bowl has tons of delicious seafood recipes, but these simple homemade fish sticks are one of my favorites. They only take about 10 minutes longer than store bought fish sticks and you get to control all the ingredients. Win-win.
3. Brown Sugar Salmon, 184 calories, 5 PointsPlus®
I make this simple dish every couple weeks and save the leftovers for salads and wraps. The recipe only uses 4 ingredients salmon, salt, pepper, and brown sugar so all you need to pick up is the fish. It’s ready in under 10 minutes and makes a great healthy dinner.
4. Herb Crusted Salmon, 350 calories, 9 PointsPlus® (with salad)
Juli over at PaleOMG has lots of delicious Paleo recipes and this simple salmon dish made with herbs and served with an arugula salad is one of my favorites. The salmon has a great crust from the coconut flour and the salad is the perfect side dish.
5. Fish Tacos with Creamy Avocado, 240 calories, 5 PointsPlus®
How can we talk about fish without talking about fish tacos? I could eat fish tacos every day and this is one of my go to recipes. It’s quick and easy with less than 250 calories for 2 tacos. Yum.
