“USDA Dietary guidelines suggest eating fish at least twice each week,” says Natalie Rizzo, M.S., R.D., a nutrition partner with Welch’s 100% grape juice. “Many Americans fall short on this recommendation, but this halibut with roasted grapes will persuade you to add more fish to your weekly meal prep.”

The glaze is created using 100% grape juice made with the dark purple Concord grape, so it brings heart-healthy polyphenols (plant nutrients) to your plate, while the balsamic roasted grapes add a sweet and tangy taste, all for just 350 calories, Rizzo notes. “Plus, preliminary research says 100% grape juice may help enhance exercise performance.”
