Packed full of protein, vitamins and omega-3, here’s why you should be filling your plate with this nutrient-rich food source
If you’re looking for a quick appetiser, you can’t get better than South American delicacy, ceviche. Typically made with fresh raw fish and garnished with sharp citrus flavours and a spicy chilli kick, this dish is a great way to wake up your tastebuds before enjoying your supper.
Tuesday: Sea bass
Instead of heading to the local chippie, swap your battered fish for a delicious piece of sea bass paired with crispy new potatoes and roasted peppers. Not only is it a fraction of the calories compared to your normal take-away, it’s quick, easy and cheap to make.
Wednesday: Thai prawn and coconut soup
Big on flavour and low in carbs, this thai prawn and coconut soup is the perfect heart-warming dish after a long day at work. Add an extra nutrient punch with spiralised courgetti, and whip up double the amount for packed lunch the next day.
Thursday: Stir fried squid with sweet chilli noodles
Stir frys are an excellent way to get your five-a-day. Throw in a mix of your favourite veg – this recipe uses a mix of sugar snap peas and shredded spring onion – and top with lightly fried squid for a delicious low-fat meal that takes minutes to make.
Friday: Grilled sardines
The NHS recommends at least one portion of oily fish per week, so why not whip up this simple dish of grilled sardines? Paired with fresh salad leaves and tangy sliced onion, this recipe couldn’t be easier to make – and with warmer weather on the horizon, you can pop this fish dish on the barbecue to cook.
