When talking about “healthy eating”, fish comes up in the conversation almost every time. Why?
Fish is a high-protein, low-fat food that provides a range of health benefits. White-fleshed fish, in particular, is lower in fat than any other source of animal protein, and oily fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids, or the “good” fats. Since the human body can’t make significant amounts of these essential nutrients, fish are an important part of the diet. Also, fish are low in the “bad” fats commonly found in red meat, called omega-6 fatty acids. — source: EDF Seafood Selector
Springtime and summer bring all sorts of yummy green veggies for us to enjoy with minimal fuss! Try this recipe with long spears of asparagus (my favorite), or use fresh, green/yellow vegetables like:
• broccoli florets
• broccoli rabe
• string beans
• yellow string beans
• sugarsnap peas
• cauliflower florets
The key to this dish is the light, citrus/garlic taste of Tangy Citrus spice blend by Your Spice of Life.
There are 2 methods of preparing this:
You can sautee the fresh vegetable in olive oil until tender, then toss it with the spice blend (in the pan) at the end
You can quickly steam the vegetable, and toss it with a dressing made of olive oil whisked with the spice blend.
I am not listing amounts because it will depend on how much veggie you used, and how strong you want the flavoring to be. In general, remember to start with a little spice — maybe one teaspoon — , taste the dish, then add more if it needs it.
A dash of your favorite sea salt and maybe a grind of fresh pepper will finish the dish!
