With summer just around the corner, people will be grilling more, going to the beach (or the neighborhood pool), and enjoying picnics outside. While you are planning your summertime meals, consider these healthy and tasty seafood recipes.
Making hamburgers is considered a staple of summer, but hamburgers are often high in calories and fat. Chicken of the Sea offers these two recipes as healthier options and they can be made on the grill using a grill-safe pan.
Chicken of the Sea Cajun Tuna Burgers
With just 417 calories per serving, this is a healthy alternative to a regular hamburger. If you want an even healthier burger, ditch the bun and serve the burger on a piece of lettuce.
Chicken of the Sea Sammie Burgers
Weighing in at less than 300 calories per serving, these salmon burgers are another great option.
