Looking for a healthy fish recipe? Here are a few to choose from for less than $3 per serving.
I love fish. Sometimes I think I can be a pescatarian (one who eats only fish - no chicken, beef, pork, etc.) I reeeeeally love fish. It's light, easy to digest and so versatile. Plus, it's super low in calories and very high in protein.
An article published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that people who eat fish 2-3 times per week run a lower risk of heart attack but to avoid predatory type fish due to high mercury levels. The F.D.A. recommends avoiding swordfish, king mackerel, shark and tilefish. The National Resources Defense Council also suggests avoiding orange roughy, marlin, ahi tuna and bigeye tuna.
But this makes things simple.....because the remaining fish is very budget friendly.
Try to stick with these fish and look for them when they are on sale for your healthy fish recipe. You can get some very good deals!! I love to use My Grocery Deals to find foods on sale at local supermarkets.
Shrimp with Cucumber Yogurt Dressing
Optional - serve with rice or sweet potato or any vegetable side dish.
Fresh, Fast and Simple Cod Fish Recipe in a Pan
This is one of those quick fish recipes that taste like it took an hour to make. It looks great on a plate and easily looks impressive.
Serve in shallow pasta bowls and sprinkle with remaining parsley to garnish.
OPTIONAL: Add a side dish of a baked potato or a side of greens or a slice of sourdough bread along with this healthy fish recipe.
SHRIMP/VEGGIE SPRING ROLLS - And not the fried kind!!
I made these SUPER SIMPLE Spring Rolls with leftover shrimp I had from my other healthy fish recipe above.
I also go to the Asian Market a lot to get vegetables super cheap and it's where I get my olive oil at an awesome price as well. The last time I was at the Asian Market I bought "rice paper" to make spring rolls. This is a great, super simple lunch or for me….it's my favorite lake/beach snack. It's light and refreshing and HEALTHY!!
I serve it with a dipping sauce like sweet chili sauce - which you can purchase at the asian market. I admit…I do not make my own…..because I am on a time budget and I don't always have the time to make everything from scratch. BUT….if it's something I eat often I do make it from scratch because then I know exactly what's in it.
