Welcome to Hart Healthy! I'm Amy Hart and one of my passions in life is to help show others that eating "better-for-you" still tastes great! I love to wind down my weekends on Sunday planning dinner menus for the upcoming week. Whether it's an original recipe, a recipe from one of my go-to resource sites, or something from my 101+ cookbook collection, this blog is designed to offer healthier lower calorie options to those who want an answer to the question, "What's for dinner?" Enjoy!
Back from a short hiatus and thought it would be appropriate to share a grill recipe! Tis the season! This is a fun way to make a turkey burger not so boring....it's got a little kick but not too spicy so if you want to turn up the heat use your favorite brand of hot sauce! Another fantastic recipe from Gina at Skinnytaste.com!
In a medium bowl combinebroccoli slaw and skinny blue cheese dressing. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, carrots, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Makes 5 equal patties, 5.5 oz each
Heat a large skillet on high heat. When hot, lightly spray the oil. Add burgers to the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low.
Cook on one side until browned 4-5 minutes, then flip. Cook another 4 minutes or until burgers are cooked all the way through (keep heat medium-low to prevent burning); top with cheese and place on a toasted burger buns topped with broccoli slaw.

Yum. Yum. Yum. I'm pretty sure blackened is one of if not the best way to cook fish. Picked up some Alaskan Halibut from Keegan's on my way home from work, threw some blackened seasoning on it, and had Brian throw it on the grill. Doesn't get much easier than that! Serve with a salad and some haricot vert for a low carb meal!

4-6 oz Halibut filet per person
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Your favorite blackened seasoning ( I used Zatterain's)
1/3 cup roasted red peppers (jarred works well for the consistency)
1 tsp garlic paste (you can use 1 garlic clove instead....just mash it up)
1-2 TBSP of reduced fat mayo
1 TBSP reduced fat sour cream
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
Dash cayenne pepper
Salt and Pepper to taste
Chop the roasted red bell peppers finely.
In a bowl combine the garlic, peppers, and liquid from the peppers. Stir together and mash the mixture with a fork or back of a spoon.
Add mayo and sour cream and keep mashing and stirring.
Add seasonings and stir vigorously until there are no lumps from the mayo and sour cream. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Turn on the grill, rub the fish with the olive oil and coat with the blackened seasoning.
Grill 5 mins per side. Careful when flipping the fish.
Warm up the sauce from the refrigerator, squeeze lemon juice over the fish, and serve with a dollop of the sauce on top.
