When it comes to trying to eat healthy, the focus tends to be on fruits, vegetables, and grains. However, you should be paying equal attention to your fish intake, as oily fish in particular is an easy way to get your recommended dose of Omega-3. Fish is also good for people who are trying to ease meat out of their diets, because it can give them their meat-fix without breaking their new diet rules. This summer, try some of these recipes to get more fish into your diet.
Instead of indulging in chicken kebabs at your next BBQ, try enjoy a salmon kebab with a sweet chili and honey marinade. Simply use a sharp chef’s knife, such as Kamikoto, to cut a salmon fillet into cubes. Cover them in marinade, stick them on a skewer, and pop them on the grill; no different to grilling chicken.
You don’t need chicken or beef to enjoy a delicious taco. You can use the same recipe and seasonings on your favorite fish, and make a fish taco that is to die for. These tacos are lighter than their meat counterparts, they are full of flavor, easy to cook, and there are many ways to prepare them, so no two fish tacos need be the same. Fish taco recipes usually include more vegetables, so they are ultimately better than traditional tacos. Enjoy experimenting this summer.
Grilled tuna rolls
You won’t feel like you’re missing out on hot dogs this summer when you have a serving of grilled tuna roll. Whether you make them using tinned tuna, or fresh tuna steaks, you’re guaranteed to have something more delicious, and filling, than a basic tuna sandwich. Use standard hot dog rolls, or indulge in a soft brioche roll to really add some luxury to this roll. The key is to use a light vinaigrette dressing as a marinade. To up with some chopped vegetables, or a coleslaw that’s light on the mayonnaise. You won’t be sorry.
Tuna pasta bake
Unfortunately, summer isn’t always a guarantee of hot BBQ weather. On slightly colder days, warm up with a hearty tuna pasta bake. Simply follow the same instructions for macaroni cheese, add a big helping of tuna, more cheese to top it off, and stick in the oven for 30 minutes. You can make it healthier by stocking it full of vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini. Basically any vegetables that you’d like to use before they go off, or vegetables from your garden that you want to show off. It’s a great dish for the whole family, and it will get the kids to eat more veggies.
Creamy salmon fettuccine
Do you have a romantic date night planned this summer? Surprise your special someone with a delicious home cooked dinner. Even if you’re not a genius in the kitchen, you can’t go wrong with a creamy salmon fettuccine – a little more fancy than standard spaghetti, but just as easy to cook.
