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.
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.
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.
