Watch our tips for making healthy fish tacos

Some people have pasta night every week, but the one thing you're guaranteed to find on my weekly menu is "Taco Night."

This is a throwback to childhood, as we had crunchy tacos-the kind that came in a box complete with the seasoning packet to doctor up ground beef, taco sauce and shells-almost every week. But now I don't discriminate; I love them all: fish tacos, chicken tacos, steak tacos, vegetarian tacos, even easy egg tacos for breakfast!

Are you ready to shake up your taco-night routine? Give one of these healthy taco recipes a try.

Don't Miss: 3 DIY Tortilla Tricks: How to Make Your Own Taco Shells, Taco Bowls and Tortilla Chips

First, a Beef Taco Recipe
The EatingWell Taco
is my go-to when I want a basic crunchy beef taco. The problem with buying the boxed kits is the seasoning mix is super-high in sodium. Making your own allows you to control sodium for a healthier beef taco recipe.

Fantastic Fish Tacos
Beer-Battered Fish Tacos with Tomato & Avocado Salsa
: I love fish tacos and this recipe is as good as it gets!

Stellar Steak Tacos
Korean Steak & Mushroom Tacos with Kimchi
: Think beyond the traditional taco profile and give these tacos a whirl. The spicy, pickled flavor and crunchy texture of kimchi, the Korean cousin to sauerkraut, is just right on these Korean steak-and-mushroom tacos.

Company-Worthy Chicken Tacos
Chicken Tacos with Charred Tomatoes
: Charring tomatoes in a hot, dry skillet makes them smoky and flavorful; in combination with fresh herbs and spices, they elevate this dish from "everyday" to "ta-da!" Serve the tacos with reduced-fat sour cream.

Yummy Vegetarian Tacos
Bean & Butternut Tacos with Green Salsa
: These vegetarian tacos, filled with beans and roasted butternut squash, are super-tasty.

Don't Forget Tacos for Breakfast!
Quick Breakfast Taco
: A smaller cousin of the breakfast burrito, the breakfast taco made with reduced-fat Cheddar and egg substitute is a satisfying and healthy breakfast option.
