Yummy Fish Recipe

From Living Well

Fish is a great source of lean protein. According the American Heart Association (AHA), it’s also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which benefit the heart of healthy people and people who are at risk or have cardiovascular disease. In fact, the AHA recommends people eat fish twice a week, and fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines and albacore tuna are high in omega-3 fatty acids.

There are lots of simple fish recipes out there to choose from when you have fish on the dinner menu. I found a simple recipe that both kids and adults will enjoy in Eating Well magazine.

Easy Sautéed Fish Fillets

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 pound catfish, tilapia, haddock or other white fish fillets cut into four portions
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

To make:
Combine flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Thoroughly dredge fillets; discard any leftover flour.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish, working in batches if necessary, and cook until lightly browned and just opaque in the center, three to four minutes per side. Serve immediately.

If you want to make the fish fillets gluten free, just use a gluten free flour mix, gluten free bread crumbs as an alternative to the flour or use the same ingredients I used in my chicken strips recipe. Enjoy!

About the Author

As a working mother with two small children, Candice Imwalle understands the challenge of incorporating healthy eating into daily life. In her job as a medical devices regional manager she encounters patients regularly who suffer from vascular disease and Type 2 Diabetes, most commonly caused by a lifetime of poor food choices. Inspired by her job, and the rising obesity rates for both children and adults in the United States, Imwalle decided to search for children’s books about the effects of an unhealthy lifestyle for her kids to read. The lack of options for this kind of children’s literature motivated Imwalle to write her own book – Sir Morgan and the Kingdom of Horrible Food. With a drive to educate children early, so they make good food choices and have a healthy adult life, Imwalle enlisted the writing help of her daughter Isabella and son Cameron, ages five and eight at the time) to assure the book was fun and interesting to younger readers.
