I can seriously eat this dish everyday and not get tired of it. Lean white fish, cooked in spinach and fragrant spices, topped with coconut milk for a light creamy flavor. Have I managed to entice you to indulge?
This has to be one the healthiest, low calorie, and nutritious dishes I make. I chose to bake this dish out of convenience. You literally take all the ingredients, mix together and then bake. It turns out a lot healthier than the similar stove top versions mainly because you don’t require oil to fry onions in and you are not over-cooking the spinach and losing major nutritional value.
White fish is super lean, low fat, high protein. I recommend it for weight loss. Fish fats are high in Omega-3 fatty acids. Health Canada recommends at least 2 servings of fish per week, and its no wonder why, with all the health benefits.
Eating oily fish can help to reduce the risk of heart disease and improve your chances of survival following a heart attack. Fish does this by lowering levels of fats called triglycerides in the blood – raised levels are associated with heart disease.
There are other countless benefits including protection from a range diseases from cancer to Alzheimer’s, arthritis, depression, increased cognitive function (especially for our developing children)and also the added skin and hair benefits 🙂
And that’s just the nutrition from the fish. Don’t forget all the health benefits from the powerhouse, spinach. Its loaded with calcium, iron, foliate, potassium, and magnesium. Spinach also contains vitamin K, fiber, phosphorus and thiamine. It is best known to control and help manage diabetes by improving blood glucose control and improving bone health.
So now you know it tastes great and is good for you. I use frozen cod for my recipe. Make sure if you are using frozen fish to thaw it out first.
Enjoy and let me know how it turns out. I love to hear feedback.
Getting skinny, one healthy recipe at a time.
