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 broccoli..it is so quick and easy and healthy!!
|Sprinkle fillets with olive oil and spices|
|I like this one from Charleston..you 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 outside..it keeps them from falling apart|
Grill just a few minutes until the pink is gone and they are white and flaky..if you overcook..it will be like rubber :D
|these are two quick and healthy side items..bought at ingles..they are both microwave|
|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.
