Fishing for a dinner idea???

Fish is so good for you. I don't like fishy fish and I am very particular what kinds I eat due to that.  Below is an article from the mayo clinic about why fish is so good for you and what kind of fish to avoid.
Here is a dinner idea. Ingles in Kingsport now has a new sea food department with lots of choices and wild fish instead of farm raised.
This is wild mahi mahi with quinoa wild rice and is so quick and easy and healthy!!

Sprinkle fillets with olive oil and spices

I like this one from can use lemon pepper and garlic salt or fresh garlic to achieve the same effect

Squeeze a lemon over them

Chad put these in a little grill basket and grilled them keeps them from falling apart
Grill just a few minutes until the pink is gone and they are white and flaky..if you will be like rubber :D
these are two quick and healthy side items..bought at ingles..they are both microwave
dishes :D

I pour the organic broccoli in my pampered chef micro-steamer with a little water and microwave
for 3 minutes

 Fish contain unsaturated fatty acids, which, when substituted for saturated fatty acids such as those in meat, may lower your cholesterol. But the main beneficial nutrient appears to be omega-3 fatty acids in fatty fish. Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of unsaturated fatty acid that's thought to reduce inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation in the body can damage your blood vessels and lead to heart disease.
Omega-3 fatty acids may decrease triglycerides, lower blood pressure, reduce blood clotting, boost immunity and improve arthritis symptoms, and in children may improve learning ability. Eating one to two servings a week of fish, particularly fish that's rich in omega-3 fatty acids, appears to reduce the risk of heart disease.

Some fish, such as tilapia and catfish, don't appear to be as heart healthy because they contain higher levels of unhealthy fatty acids. Keep in mind that any fish can be unhealthy depending on how it's prepared. For example, broiling or baking fish is a healthier option than is deep-frying.
Some researchers are concerned about eating fish produced on farms as opposed to wild-caught fish. Researchers think antibiotics, pesticides and other chemicals used in raising farmed fish may have harmful effects to people who eat the fish.
