Vet recommends non-grain-free diet. Healthy grain wet foods?

I posted on here last a few years back about my Crowley's panting and possible heart issues. I'm glad to say the panting has pretty much gone away, though part of that is likely us now knowing his limitations, temperature-wise, and the fact that he's 3 now and a little less energetic. It doesn't seem to happen hardly ever anymore, however.

But I brought it up today at Crowley's 3 year check-up, because our clinic has a new vet and I wanted to make sure she knew his history. She questioned me on his diet, to which I explained that we did a 50/50. 50% what I prefer him to eat, which is a high quality protein, grain-free diet, and 50% what Crowley prefers, which tbh is complete garbage food (Friskies Treasures). The vet wants me to put him on a taurine supplement and take him off the grain-free diet because I guess his Persian genetics predispose him to heart problems, and he's shown signs of possible heart problems, and there has recently been a link found between grain-free diets and heart problems. So just to be safe, she wants me to find a high quality grain-included cat food. She didn't have any brand recommendations, so.... here I am!

Any recs?
