There's Nothing Fishy About Eating Healthy

Posted: Updated:

As many continue to observe Lent, fish is a common and popular menu item. However, fast food and processed fish can be extremely unhealthy for you.

That's why the Dakota Medical Foundation and Cass-Clay Alive, have teamed up to help you eat healthier fish options. Cooking your own fish can be significantly lower in calories, sodium and cholesterol, among other things.

Deb Haugen, a dietitian with Cass-Clay Alive, says cooking your own fish can be easier than you think. She shared two recipes on Wednesday's Valley Today:

Poached Cod

  • Thaw frozen or buy fresh cod and cut into pieces of 3 to 4 chucks
  • Place cod in or over boiling water for about 8 minutes (should flake when fully cooked)
  • Season or drizzle with a lemon vinaigrette
  • Serve with rice, fruit, or vegetables

Baked Tilapia

  • Thaw frozen or place fresh tilapia in an oiled glass baking pan
  • Coat each piece with about a tablespoon of yogurt
  • Season with: cheese, onion, shredded carrots, sun dried tomato and black pepper
  • Bake at 400 for about 12 minutes
  • Serve with rice fruit or vegetables 

The Dakota Medical Foundation even offers healthy cooking classes at their instruction kitchen every Tuesday night. To register, visit: www.dakmed.org or www.impactgiveback.org

The Dakota Medical Foundation is located at 4141 28th Avenue South in Fargo.
