Whether or not you are observing Lent, seafood and fish are excellent lean proteins to add to your diet. With many varieties having only 100-150 calories per 4 oz. serving, adding fish to your weekly meal plans is a great way to add more variety to your meals without lots of calories and fat. And if you are anything like me, I just love it. If my wallet allowed it, I would probably eat fish 4-5 times a week. I can't get enough and with so many different types of seafood, it's hard to get bored. So here are some of my favorite healthy seafood recipes, what are yours?
1. Ancho Fish Tacos with Slaw, 264 calories, 7 PointsPlus®
Fish tacos are the first thing that I think of anytime I am thinking about a seafood centered meal. I could live off fish tacos. This recipe comes together in no time and you can use the rub for any kind of fish, shrimp, or other seafood for the tacos.
2. Crispy Baked Fish Sticks with Homemade Tarter Sauce, 261 calories, 6 PointsPlus®
Fish sticks do not need to come from a box! These delicious homemade fish sticks from Liz at The Lemon Bowl are easy to make and taste so much better than the boxed kind. Your family will love them.
3. Honey Lime Shrimp, 159 calories, 4 PointsPlus®
I love the combination of honey and lime and use it often with fish dishes. This easy to make shrimp dish gets nice and crispy and is packed with flavor. These would also make delicious lettuce wraps or tacos.
4. Hummus Crusted Baked Fish, 199 calories, 5 PointsPlus®
I know, it sounds a bit strange, but it's good, really good. Dara from Cookin Canuck came up with this yummy recipe where fish gets a healthy coating of lemon, hummus, and dill and then is baked in the oven. Try it, you won't regret it.
5. Brown Sugar Salmon, 184 calories, 5 PointsPlus®
This is one of those dishes that I think are perfect for people who don't think they like fish or salmon. It's easy, packed with flavor, and in my experience a crowd pleaser even for kids.
