Fish tacos make the best summer meals. Besides being really easy to prepare, they’re healthy when sautéed in a tablespoon of olive oil. The American Heart Association recommends eating a 2.5 ounce serving of fish at least two times a week, especially fish that’s high in omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, lake trout, and albacore tuna.

 

To add variety to the meal, or to impress your friends when entertaining, try out these three fish taco toppings, all made with fresh fruits and vegetables. They’re the kind of topping you can load up on and still maintain your fitness goals.

 

Happy Summer!
