Fish has long been recommended for the diet-conscious. That doesn’t mean it has to be boring!
Fish is rich in protein and nutrients. Prepared correctly and paired with the right side dishes, you can have an amazing meal that’s good for you too!
Bring out the natural flavors. Many types of fish are very flavorful and don’t need your help. Sometimes all you need is a squeeze of lemon or lime or a little bit of salt and pepper.
Other fish are very mild and will be overpowered by a marinade.
Pan frying and baking are good ideas. Consider searing as well.
