10 Great Fish Recipes: Bouillabaisse

Vegetable with fish bouillabaisse is a light and healthy dish. — Ocean/Corbis

Fish is a great addition to a healthy diet: It is is generally low in calories, and it's full of protein and a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help improve brain function and cardiovascular health. Many fish are nutrient-dense, and pairing them with fresh summer vegetables makes for a delicious and nutritious meal. Fish also cooks fairly quickly, allowing less time in front of the stove and more time enjoying the longer days of summertime.  Here are 10 great recipes for you to try:
