You may have plunked a few salmon burgers on the grill last weekend, but typically meat gets all the glory at Memorial Day barbecues. These light, healthy fish dishes are exactly what you’ll crave as the warm-weather months heat up.

The chipotle-chile powder-dusted sea bass stuffed inside these corn tortillas is jacked up even more by the presence of jalapeno-red onion-cilantro salsa. But, a burst of refreshing watermelon cools it all down.

Mahi mahi is a sensational white-fleshed fish with great flavor and hearty texture, making it ideal for this healthy take on fish tacos. The seasoning in this dish is a Tex-Mex-inspired blend of chili powder, cumin, marjoram, thyme, onion and garlic–spiced up with cayenne and then tang-ified with fresh lime. The list might look long, but no doubt you have every single spice in your rack. The herb-crusted fish is partnered perfectly with tender beans, fresh avocado, sweet tomatoes and cilantro, making it the perfect ending to an awesome day.
*Note: You may substitute grouper, cod, monkfish, shrimp, or any firm fish that can hold up to this handheld feast. Heck, chicken even works!

We’ve talked about lean meats for the grill, but fish is a lighter option, too. This dish is simple: tender, grilled Mahi Mahi fills a soft corn tortilla and shredded cabbage gives some extra crunch. A drizzle of homemade, spicy sauce adds a bit of kick. I always grill an ear of corn for a splash of color (and added nutrients) on the side.
Just because it’s got mayonnaise and a Mexican flair doesn’t mean it’s an overindulgence — this whole meal weighs in at only 360 calories and less than 10 grams of fat!
