Recipe of the week – Fresh fish made easy

by • 09/29/2017

No one can deny the health benefits of fish. Rich in protein and other various nutrients, the fact that they’re also so delicious just makes fish dishes absolutely hard to resist! After all, who doesn’t love the smell of freshly grilled salmon? But if you’ve gotten a bit tired of baking, roasting, or frying your fish, give Karin G. Reiter’s fresh fish recipe a whirl and delight your tastebuds with something new!

 

Serves 2

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 white fresh fish fillets; mullet, snapper, white bait
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 2 tbsp pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 tsp toasted pine nuts
  • Salt & pepper to season

 

Directions:

  1. Slice the fish into small squares and place on a flat plate.
  2. Cover with the juice of one lime, add a pinch of sea salt and let it rest for a couple of minutes.
  3. Add the lime zest, the pomegranate seeds, basil, mint, pine nuts.
  4. Garnish with cracked pepper.

Not only is this an economical dish in terms of calorie content, it’s also the best way to preserve the nutrients contained within the fish. Through the process of cooking, some of the original nutrition can be lost due to heat exposure, but serving them fresh helps retain all that natural goodness!

 

For maximum flavour and nutrition, Karin highly recommends going with fresh fish as opposed to frozen ones. They might cost more, but the gains in taste and nutrients make it worthwhile. Just be sure to remove all the bones!
