Island Dinner

This recipe was soo good! I enjoy cooking and being creative in the kitchen! This though was one I found on the internet when I was looking up island favorites. When it comes to being in the kitchen it’s like a puzzle for me. All the ingredients are the pieces and I just have to put it together sometimes in the way I was taught but mostly in the way my imagination goes. This recipe is called Mahi Mahi with coconut rice but of course I changed the fish to cod and proceeded with a few different things such as long grain organic rice. It really is up to you what you want to put with it. I almost thought of making it with pineapple. (I have another recipe for that for next time) The whole basis of this recipe is to have the sweets and salty combined. If you enjoy your tastes buds to get a dose of each different tastes, then this is the perfect dinner for you. One thing I did when I made this was boil mussels in butter and garlic and in the same pan sautéed all the sauce ingredients! It was amazing. The best part of this recipe is that it is so healthy and flavorful! The fish is good for those who are vegetarian and the vegetables have all the nutrients. Here are some of the health benefits this dinner provides.

The mussles of course are high in protein and in vitamin A!

Garlic: “Every 100 grams of garlic will serve you with close to 150 calories, 33 grams of carbs, 6.36 grams of protein. Garlic is also enriched with Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6, folate, Vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, sodium and zinc. “-

Long grain brown rice is a good source of “magnesium,phosphorus, selenium, thiamin, niacin and vitamin B6, and an excellent source of manganese, with 88 percent of your daily manganese in just one cup cooked.” –courtesy of Google

Best dinner I ever made. Go try it for yourselves and let me know; what did you change or make different.
