Grocery stores recognize Lent by putting various kinds of fish on sale. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish (particularly fatty fish) at least two times a week. Fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines and albacore tuna are high in omega-3 fatty acids.
I have been experimenting with cooking and grilling fish, trying to come up with something easy that has good flavor without adding breading and fat. I am trying to avoid the calories in breading, and I hate to pay the extra for someone else to add a little sauce.
Here’s a simple and tasty way to cook fish fillets:
- Turn on the oven; preheat to 400 degrees.
- Line a baking pan with foil (easy clean-up); lay the fillets in the pan.
- Drizzle with olive or canola oil, lemon or lime juice, salt/pepper or other seasonings of your choice.
- Bake about 20 minutes—the fish will flake when it is done. (It is okay to start with frozen fish, it just takes a little longer.)
