Last update: 02 September, 2018

A fish dinner isn’t going to make you feel too full. Not only that, but it also has a low calorie count. It’s just what you need at the end of the day, to satisfy hunger, without filling your stomach with food that you won’t be able to burn off. For you to include fish in your diet, we will give you some recipes, where fish is the main course.

All of the fish dinner recipes that we recommend below, are healthy and can be prepared in less than half an hour. They’re perfect for when you arrive home tired, after a long day of work and you don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen.

Salmon with wild asparagus

Salmon with wild asparagus for fish dinner.


  • 1 salmon fillet
  • 6 wild asparagus
  • Salt
  • Oregano
  • 1 Greek yogurt
  • 3.38 fluid ounces of liquid cream
  • 1 onion


In order to cook the suggested dish as a fish dinner, we will start by making a light, yogurt-based sauce. It can be made very quickly and will make the dish more appetizing. In the first instance, we heat up a pan with a little bit of oil and fry the onion (finely sliced) lightly.

When the onion is cooked, we add the Greek yogurt, the liquid cream, a little bit of salt, and some oregano. Stir until the onion is dissolved. If you don’t like the sauce’s texture, you can put it in blender. Set the sauce aside to use it later.

Add some drops of oil in a pan or a griddle and grill the salmon with the wild asparagus. Add a little bit of salt. It’ll be ready in just a few minutes.

Place a couple of tablespoons of sauce as a bed for the food. Put the salmon and the wild asparagus on top of it.

Oven-baked hake with vegetables

Hake for a fish dinner.


  • 2 pieces of hake
  • Half an onion
  • One tomato
  • Green pepper
  • Red pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Salt


In order to make this simple fish dinner idea, start by washing all of the vegetables. Once they are washed, peel them and cut them into equally-sized pieces.

Place them on to the oven tray with a small amount of olive oil and salt. Afterwards, put the hake on top. If the hake is very thin, it’s better to put the vegetables into the oven for a few minutes first. When they’re half cooked put the hake on top and cook it for 15 minutes at 356 degrees Fahrenheit.

Tuna salad

Tuna salad as a fish dinner.


  • Half a head of lettuce
  • A tomato
  • One can of tuna in olive oil
  • Green olives
  • Fresh cheese
  • Salt
  • Balsamic vinegar


If there’s one dinner that’s both healthy and fast, it’s a salad. The only thing you have to keep in mind when preparing it, is that it’s dinner time and you won’t be able to burn off whatever you eat. Because of that, you should avoid adding pasta, red meat, or other caloric foods to the salad.

In order to prepare the tuna salad, add all of the ingredients together and use a small portion of the olive oil in the can of tuna, to dress the salad. Then, add a small amount of salt. Keep in mind that canned tuna already has added salt. That means that just a little salt to taste, is enough. Finally, add a small amount of balsamic vinegar.

And just like that, we have a complete and healthy dinner. Few recipes are able to bring together the vitamins, proteins, and dairy products that this salad can.

Lemon sea bass

Brass with lemon as a fish dinner.


  • 1 sea bass
  • A potato
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt
  • Olive oil


This fish dinner recipe is perfect for those times when you’re in a rush. It’s easy to make and you can do other chores or just take a rest while it’s being baked in the oven.

Start by preheating the oven to 338 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, peel the potato and cut it into slices to use as a bed. Place the potatoes on to the oven tray. The tray should be kept in the oven.

Clean the sea bass and cut half of the lemon into slices. After five minutes, when the potato slices are half-baked, take the tray out of the oven and put the sea bass on it. Add a little bit of salt. Then put the lemons in place.

The flavor will be stronger if you place them inside of the sea bass. So if you don’t much care for the taste of lemon, it would be best to place them around the sea bass instead. Put it into the oven again, and cook for ten minutes on each side. When you turn it over, add the juice from the remaining half of the lemon. This will also give the potato slices a taste of citrus.
