9 Delicious Grilled Fish Recipes

Tasty and light meals to try this summer

6. Tuna Salad With Tangerine Vinaigrette 

by Jinx and Jefferson Morgan

Freshly grilled, marinated fish takes tuna salad to a new level, as does the intensity of the reduced tangerine juice, vinegar and mustard you drizzle on it at the end.

Per serving: 235 calories, 2g saturated fat, 13g carbohydrates, 27g protein, 2g fiber, 376mg sodium

7. Grilled Las Cruces-Style Trout With Green Chile and Pecan Stuffing

by Jane Butel

Stuffing fish with nuts and herbs? That might not be in your daily cooking repertoire. But this recipe, which calls for delicious toasted pecans, is worth the experiment.

Per serving: 378 calories, 3g saturated fat, 4g carbohydrates, 36g protein, 1g fiber, 91mg sodium

8. Grilled Halibut With Green Sauce 

by Victoria Blashford-Snell and Brigitte Hafner

This easy meal, which uses a medley of fresh herbs, comes together in minutes. In cooler months, you can cook it indoors under the broiler.

Per serving: 366 calories, 3g saturated fat, 5g carbohydrates, 32g protein, 1g fiber, 374mg sodium

9. Tuna With Grilled Vegetables and Provencal Vinaigrette 

by Debra Ponzek

The tuna (or bass or cod, if you prefer) is paired with a gorgeous assemblage of squash and tomatoes. It's finished with the flavorful anchovy-and-shallot vinaigrette, which needs to be prepared 24 hours before serving.

Per serving (not including vinaigrette): 93 calories, 1g saturated fat, 2g carbohydrates, 1g protein, 0g fiber, 45mg sodium
