Sumac Seared Mahi with Radish and Pepper Slaw

Print

This is filed under my ‘home-cooking to impress a girl’ folder, but apart from that it is also incredibly healthy. This dish provides plenty of lean protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, and that all-important dose of turmeric. You can season the fish and prep the slaw a few hours ahead of time for super quick execution time.  The flavors are simple yet exotic and the presentation is picturesque. Use for good, not evil.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This is my kind of meal; quick and easy but with amazing flavor and impressive presentation! It pairs brown rice with a healthy and lean protein like mahi-mahi, served with a bright, crunchy slaw to provide added nutrients and texture. Turmeric and peppers have been shown to be potent anti-inflammatories, and along with radishes, are naturally low in Vitamin A, high levels of which can overtax an already compromised liver. Peppers also contain loads of Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant.
