8. Tuna Salad Stuffed Avocado

Ditch the can of tuna fish and opt for a fresh tuna fillet instead for this ultra-rich and healthy tuna salad recipe. Between the fresh tuna and the creamy avocado, you’ll love the texture and flavor in this dish. Not to mention that it’s filled with vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats!

9. Linguine and Clams

This recipe from the Smitten Kitchen is comfort food re-defined, but it’s actually super healthy for you! Clams are a low-calorie, low-fat, high-protein seafood option that also happens to be high in vitamins and minerals like B vitamins, zinc, iron, and selenium. If you’re trying to keep things low-carb, swap in zucchini noodles for the linguine.

Foil packets are the perfect way to keep your clean-up to a minimum. And, you don’t need to cook them outside on the grill, either! You can toss these shrimp-filled foil packets into the oven and they’ll be ready in only 20 minutes.

12. Salmon Quinoa Cakes

Switch up your routine by making these Salmon Quinoa Cakes. This is one of my favorite healthy seafood recipes when I’ve been stuck in a rut and can’t think of what to make for dinner (although, they’re pretty good for breakfast, too). You’ll love the texture as much as the flavor.

13. Grilled Shrimp Cocktail

Keep things simple with this recipe from Smitten Kitchen. All you need to do is skewer up some shrimp and throw them on the Barbie. It’s super easy to make your cocktail sauce from scratch, too, which allows you to control the ingredients.

14. Avocado Tuna Cakes

I absolutely adore the flavors in these Avocado Tuna Cakes from Well Plated. It’s a great way to transform canned tuna into something fun and different. And, honestly, anything made with avocado is usually a winner in my book!
