Well today is turning out to be a rather lovely Monday. I taught a new morning class, made progress with my scorpion pose and I have so many ideas buzzing around my head for my blog, my videos and my classes! It's such a lovely feeling. So as I am sat here drinking my favourite Pukka Detox tea I thought I would share with you a super easy, quick and healthy recipe that I whipped together for Matt and I on Saturday evening.
On a personal note I just wanted to quickly touch upon my 'diet'. I eat a mostly plant based vegetarian diet on a day to day basis but once or twice I week I eat fish, seafood or chicken. I have found that this works best for me. Perhaps I am a 'bad yogi' in that I am not totally vegetarian but this is what works best for my body and my digestion. I have been plagued with bloating and stomach problems in the past which is why (for the most part) I no longer eat red meat. Well anyway! Onto this yummy and healthy recipe.
Fish is super healthy and it doesn't have to cost the earth. Supermarkets stock sustainably sourced fish, all you need to do is check the packaging. Fish is also a great healthy meal as it doesn't take much time or effort to prepare and is rich in Omega 3. This dish took me less than 30 minutes to prepare, cook and serve!
For the fish:
- 2 sea bass fillets, skin on
- 1 tbsp of coconut oil (you can use olive oil if you wish)
- 1 knob of ginger, peeled and chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 2 finger chillies, de-seeded and thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp of soy sauce
Season the fish with salt and pepper, then slash the skin 3 times. Heat the coconut oil in a heavy based frying pan. Once hot, fry the fish, skin down, for 5 minutes or until the skin in very crisp and golden. The fish will be almost cooked through. Turn over and cook for another minute adding the soy sauce, ginger, garlic and chillies. Transfer the fish to a serving plate to keep warm.
Continue stirring the ginger, chillies and garlic in the pan for another 30 seconds and then add to the fish on the serving plate. Serve with the Red Lentil Salad and enjoy!
For the Red Lentil Salad
- 1 cup of dried red lentils
- 2 salad tomatoes, chopped
- the juice of half a lemon
- a handful of coriander, torn up
- 1 tsp of thai red curry paste
- salt and pepper to taste
Rinse lentils under cold running water. Add one cup of lentils to three cups of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain lentils, run under cold water then drain again.
While the lentils are cooking you should add all the other ingredients to a bowl and mix together, Once the lentils are cooked and rinsed add the lentils to the bowl. Mix up well.
There you go, a super easy, healthy meal in under 30 minutes! Do let me know if you give this recipe a go. Have a look at the Fish is the Dish website for more healthy recipe ideas. What's your favourite fish recipe? Let me know in the comments.
