15. 30-Minute Lemon Basil Shrimp and Asparagus Recipe

These flavors pair perfectly together – bright lemon, herbaceous basil, and green asparagus. Add in some pungent garlic, spicy red pepper flakes, and low-calorie shrimp and you’ve really got a winner!

16. Baked Fish and Chips

Everyone knows about fish and chips, but it’s not exactly high on the list of healthy seafood recipes. Not anymore! Thanks to this recipe from Well Plated, we now have a way to bake our “fried” fish instead! This is a great recipe to get into cod, but you could also use any white fish (like Pollock or halibut).

17. Sweet Potato Tuna Melts

Talk about a fun way to create a fun twist on a classic! This recipe from Lexi’s Clean Kitchen uses sweet potato steaks as the “buns” for these tuna melts. That makes them low-carb in addition to being high in protein (and, super flavorful, too!).

18. Shrimp Tacos with Creamy Taco Slaw

Fish tacos are high on my go-to list when I’m looking for healthy seafood recipes. It’s so easy to coax a lot of flavor out of the filling, and you can use almost any type of seafood. This recipe from Well Plated uses high-protein, low-calorie shrimp instead of fish, and it totally works.

19. Pan Seared Salmon with Thai Vegetables

Salmon is one of those versatile ingredients that goes well with a variety of flavors. You can keep things simple with lemon and garlic, or you can go for bold, Thai flavors. Have some fun with this recipe!

20. Grilled Fish Bowls with Garlic Scapes and Kale

In addition to being completely beautiful, these grilled fish bowls from Lexi’s Clean Kitchen are filled with nutrient-dense ingredients. She uses wild salmon fillets, but this is a great recipe to experiment with different kinds of fish.

21. Instant Pot Shrimp and Grits

Who doesn’t love the comforting flavors of shrimp and grits? Our recipe is a skinny version of the Southern classic, and we keep the calories low by making smart ingredient choices. The best part? This is one of those healthy seafood recipes that requires almost no effort at all, thanks to the use of the Instant Pot!
