Fish Recipes For More Energy

Are you trying to find a low fat meal that will provide you with needed energy and healthy nutrients? Fish is one of the best meats to add to your diet. Fish are high in good fatty acids, like omega-3 and omega-6 and are also loaded with protein. These fats will help boost your energy levels and also have many other healthy side effects. These fats have been linked with increased memory capacity, lower cholesterol, reduced risk of hearth attack and even reduced risk of cancer. With so many benefits why not add fish to your diet?

Salmon with Green Beans in Garlic

Salmon is perhaps the best fish to use. It is fairly inexpensive, low in calories and loaded with essential fats and proteins. Below I have an excellent recipe for cooking salmon for those of you who have never tried making it on your own. Its simple and tastes great.
1 Salmon Fillet
1 Lemon Sliced

For the Marinade
3 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil
2 Tablespoons of Water
1 Juiced Lemon
1 Teaspoon of Lemon Zest
2 Teaspoons of Basil
1 Tablespoon of Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon of Worchestershire Sauce
A couple Dashes of Salt
1 Teaspoon of Lemon Pepper Seasoning
1 Clove of Garlic (chopped)
Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a bowl and add to salmon fillet either in a dish or a ziplock bag. For best results allow to marinade at least 2 hours, over night is better.
After marinading, place salmon fillet in a skillet and cook on medium heat for three minutes on each side.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place the Salmon in a baking dish and cover the fillet with the slices of lemon and left over marinade. Cover the dish with foil and cook for 20 minutes or until Flaky.
Side dishes that compliment the salmon nicely and that are still low in fat are brown rice and some form of green vegetable or perhaps a salad.
