Lemony Baked Fish with Herbs

My husband and nephew laugh whenever we order take out, or if we eat in a restaurant, because they’ll look at the menu and know I’m probably going to get the fish.

Yes, it’s true. Fish, is one of my favorite animal proteins.

I also love it cooking it at home, and I encourage my clients to do the same.

Unfortunately, many complain that cooking fish makes the whole house smell like fish.

There’s a remedy for that!

Purchase fresh fish and bake it in the oven rather than cook it on top of the stove.

It works like a charm.

When the fish is contained within the oven, you gain all of the benefits of this protein, without suffering from stinky house syndrome.

Some benefits of eating fish include:

  • Anti-inflammatory food
  • Rich in omega 3’s
  • Maintains cardiovascular health
  • Reduces risk of heart attack and stroke
  • Iodine-rich to support thyroid and overall health

So, don’t be afraid to cook fish at home.

Try this delicious and easy recipe for starters. Enjoy!
