Mediterranean Fish

This is a very simple yet delicious recipe that can be made with basic ingredients. The idea is not to make healthy cooking with whole foods a tedious process but, to be able to easily incorporate it into your daily cooking. In most of my recipes I try to keep the ingredients simple and easy to follow. However, I am particular about the source as eating clean ingredients are imperative for our health and wellbeing.

In this recipe I have used sustainably sourced Barramundi and Salmon with no antibiotics or hormones and farmed in pristine waters. Both fish are high in essential omega-3 fatty acids which are beneficial for heart health. Essential meaning that our body cannot create it so we have to get it from the food we eat or from supplements. Fatty fish like salmon, tuna and barramundi are high in marine omega-3 fatty acids. We should try to eat fish twice a week at least to obtain sufficient amounts of omega-3s in our diet.
