Get Thinner With Easy Fish Dinners
Fish is a great way to mix up your normal dinner routine. Though you hear a lot about the health benefits of salmon, there are plenty of equally healthy—and tasty—fish to enjoy. Try these four quick recipes to have a delightful seafood supper.
Cod With Pine-Nut Brown Butter and Garlicky Spinach
Throw together this sophisticated dinner in less than 30 minutes! Cod is a protein-rich fish that packs plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, while spinach adds nearly one-third of the dietary reference intake (DRI) of iron. Though cod is mild on its own, pine nuts, olive oil, and lemon juice combine to add a buttery flavor with the perfect hint of citrus.

Parchment-Baked Halibut With Pesto, Zucchini, and Carrots
Parchment paper is a great way to seal in flavor while keeping the fish from drying in the oven. Halibut, like cod and salmon, is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and tryptophan, an amino acid that helps regulate appetite. Serve with oven-roasted vegetables, and you've got a delicious meal.

Tuna With Jalapeno Sour Cream
This dish is about as far from canned tuna as you can imagine. Chili powder adds some zest to the tuna, while fresh cilantro, lime juice, and a jalapeño pepper spice up the sour cream. You're left with a spicy way to get your B vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. This dish is also great with rice and pan-roasted corn.

Cioppino With Garlic Toasts
This traditional Italian fish stew is a hot and hearty way to enjoy a variety of seafood. Clams, halibut, shrimp, and scallops provide plenty of lean protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and two-thirds of your DRI of iron. Plus, the tomato-based broth is the perfect base for a variety of spices, including basil, fennel, and parsley. Served with a slice of sourdough bread, you get a steamy and savory meal in a bowl.
