Grilling tilapia gives it a delicious charred flavor that complements this Mexican-inspired salad. To ensure that the fish doesn’t stick to the grill, coat the fish with oil before grilling, and do not flip until the edges look opaque.

A mainstay of Mediterranean cuisine, olives are a source of “good” fat and have been shown to benefit the heart. For a more intensely flavored dish, choose oil-packed olives. If you need to pit them, flatten with the blade of a knife and squeeze. The pits should come right out.

Vietnamese sandwiches (or “banh mi”) are typically filled with meat, but this lighter version uses baked tilapia. Be sure to pickle the daikon and carrots ahead of time, which will help the vegetables absorb the sweet and sour flavor of the brine. Daikon radish can be found in Asian or specialty supermarkets, but if you’re having difficulty finding it, you can use sliced cucumber instead.
