If you’re eating more fish and less red meat, you’re doing good things for your health — especially if you’re not frying your fish. This week’s Health-e-Recipe for Moroccan Baked Tilapia gives you an easy, low-fat and low-cost fish dish.
Tilapia does not have as much omega-3 fat as salmon or tuna, but it is a protein source that is very low in calories and fat. Studies on populations that eat a Mediterranean Diet show that eating fish frequently – along with plenty of cancer-fighting vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans – is a health-protective way to eat.
And Morocco is a Mediterranean country. Its cuisine features sweet-hot spices – in this recipe, sweet paprika and a pinch of cayenne pepper mixed with dusky cumin. Serve this fish dish with our recipe for Marinated Peppers and Zucchini with Almonds, steamed spinach and a whole grain.
