Did you know you can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna fish?

Tuna Fish is packed full of health benefits, and nothing can quite beat the taste of a fresh tuna fillet or steak that has been grilled. I have to admit I always forget about tuna when I’m shopping for my fish dishes, but this easy grilled tuna recipe complete with garbanzo bean salad is going to start making an appearance on my weekly menu board.

Skinny Recipe: Lemon Stuffed Red Snapper

Lemon Stuffed Red Snapper

Red snapper is a lean source of protein, rich in vitamins and fatty-acids. It makes the perfect centerpiece for summer dinners with friends and family. My favorite recipe balances the mild taste of the fish with the bold, clean flavors of lemon and olive oil.

I like to serve this stunning entree with family style sides of roasted veggies and creamy polenta. After dinner there’s still plenty of room for a summer treat like warm berries over vanilla ice cream or refreshing watermelon slushies.

Skinny Recipe: Citrus-Baked Dover Sole

Welcome to 2015 everyone! I hope everyone had a safe and healthy New Year’s Eve celebration and is ready to hit the ground running! If you’re like me, you’re ready to get back to the basics after all the rich food and drinks of the holidays and start eating your fruits and veggies again. For dinner last week I made this delicious, and simple, Dover sole dish and just had to share it with all of you. With only 6 ingredients and less than 15 minutes I had a wonderfully scrumptious dinner on the table for the whole family. Try it this week and let me know what you think!

This beautiful appetizer will certainly impress your guests. Break this recipe out for a special summer occasion or holiday, like a birthday or the Fourth of July. The sweetness from the mango and the zest from the citrus balances perfectly with the buttery goodness of the lobster meat. While this isn’t a traditional ceviche (the meat isn’t completely “cooked” in the citrus juices), it’s a refreshing dish that’s best served with a cold cerveza on a hot day!

Skinny Recipe: Southwest Shrimp Dip

There’s nothing like a zesty dip filled with shrimp for enjoying on your favorite cracker. Like shrimp salad, but thicker and heartier, this dip showcases the fresh taste of seafood. Pair with baked corn tortilla chips and you have a great gluten-free snack option.

Southwest Shrimp Dip

Makes about 4 cups


1 pound boiled shrimp, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 cups reduced fat sour cream
2 tablespoons mayonnaise (regular or reduced fat)
1 to 2 teaspoons chile powder (to taste)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons finely chopped red Spanish onion (or other sweet salad onion)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
1 teaspoon brown sugar or one packet of your favorite no-calorie sweetener
Salt to taste
Extra cilantro leaves for garnish


Stir together all ingredients except garnish. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours. Garnish and serve with fat-free chips for dipping.
