Our clients always ask us what nutrients they should pay attention to in order to help them to have long- lasting energy. One nutrient to pay attention to is magnesium which is essential for energy production and muscle function.
You can get magnesium like we do bysnacking on almonds, hazelnuts, and cashews and eating whole grains (like oatmeal).. Fish, and halibut in particular, are also a great source of magnesium.
We love to grill halibut. Then we can throw it onto a salad, eat it with our Fresh Orange Rice (recipe here: Healthy Valentine’s Day Dinner), or throw together a quick orange chutney to top it with (chop up oranges, add cardamom, cloves, ginger, and crushed red chili peppers to taste).
Here’s how we prepare our halibut:
- Juice of one large lemon
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Pinch of salt
- 1 lb halibut
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Combine lemon juice, olive oil, and a pinch of salt in a ziplock bag. Add fish filets and let marinate for about 20 minutes.
- Preheat the grill to medium-high for 10 minutes. Once hot, lower to medium heat. Oil the grill.
- Drain the marinade and pat the fish dry. Season with salt and pepper to taste on both sides.
- Grill fish for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned.
