If these ideas don’t have you salivating this last recipe will. I mean, who doesn’t love bacon? This Bacon Wrapped Fish from EatWell 101, is scrumptious. Sure, it may have a few more calories than a regular fish meal, but it will take less to fill you since it is packed with protein and minerals. Just wrap fish fillets in a savory layer of smoked bacon and get a crisp fish roast that smells wonderfully in the kitchen. Even the pickiest fish eater will dive into this dish!

Just by adding a little fish to each meal, you may be able to cut back on unhealthy fats and calories. Try substituting a fish plate this season to wow your guests and keep your heart healthy.
