Vietnamese Grilled Flank Steak
Soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, and ginger paste are a powerfully flavorful combination, and they’re strong enough that you only have to marinate flank steak for a few minutes for major flavor impact. Plus, the thin flank steak in this Vietnamese Grilled Flank Steak recipe cooks quickly, so dinner is ready in a hurry. Finish off the plate with a fresh and flavorful side of Grapefruit and Papaya Slaw for a meal that’s just 394 calories.

If there was ever a better meal than the sheet pan dinner, we don’t know of it. The whole meal cooks at once, and you only have one dish to clean at the end. The great thing about quick-cooking salmon is that it remains moist and flaky while the green beans turn tender and crisp. Sheet Pan Honey-Ginger Salmon and Green Beans is the perfect weeknight dinner, and it’s just 330 calories. (For another 170, you can include a side of Jasmine Rice.)
