It’s the most wonderful time of year! No not Christmas in July – Shark Week! I have loved Shark Week ever since I was little and I still look forward to it as an adult. And now, my boys love it too! Shark Week starts this Sunday July 24th.

These shark week fish bowls are super fun and festive to sip on while you’re watching Shark Week. Showing you how to make them below!

Shark Week Fish Bowls

  • Nerd clusters
  • Blue lemonade (Linking the one I used or you can do regular lemonade and add blue food coloring)
  • Splash of Lemon-Lime soda or seltzer water
  • Shark gummies or Sweedish Fish
  • Lemon Slices
  • A generous shot of your favorite tequila to make it an adult cocktail 😉

Shark Week Fish Bowls

Start by filling the fish bowl with nerd clusters. Then layer with ice and the gummie sharks.

Greek turkey meatball bowls

Greek turkey meatball bowls

This is such a satisfying and refreshing meal! These Greek turkey meatballs are so delicious and no one will ever guess that there’s zucchini snuck in.  Serve over some roasted vegetables, with tzatziki and feta. Scroll down for my Greek turkey meatball bowl recipe. And be sure to check out my other healthy recipes at the end, including my chocolate zucchini brownies 😉

Greek turkey meatball bowls

Ingredients:

For the meatballs

  • 2 packages of ground turkey
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped dill
  • 1 Tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

For the bowls

  • 1 cup small baby potatoes chopped
  • 2 peppers sliced
  • 1 zucchini sliced into rounds
  • 1 onion diced
  • olive oil
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 cucumber, chopped
  • tzatiki sauce (I used Cedar’s brand but you can make your own)
  • feta cheese

Directions:

If you want to help cut down on time, I usually will have all the veggies cut ahead of time and store in a large ziploc bag in the fridge.

  1. In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, eggs, bread crumbs, and rest of the meatball ingredients.
  2. Mix together until combined.
  3. Roll into balls.
  4. I like to cook my meatballs in the air fryer, I think they get more crispy that way. I usually spray the air fryer with a little cooking spray and will pop the meatballs in the air fryer on 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, until golden brown and outside is crispy. (linking my air fryer here) Or you can bake in the oven.
  5. While the meatballs cook, spread out the potatoes and vegetables onto a roasting pan, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake until nice and roasted, golden brown.
  6. Next build the bowls! Fill your bowl with the roasted veggies, chopped cucumber and turkey meatballs. Add some crumbly feta cheese and tzatziki sauce. Enjoy!
