Dinner Tonight: Grilled Fish with Tomato Salsa

Spread the love

I had the most amazing meal this past weekend at my cottage and it was gone before I could think to take a picture. My husband caught a 4 pound walleye, which is a light tasting freshwater fish. It is high in protein and delicious when grilled. Along with a tomato salsa made from things from our garden, it was a delicious, heart healthy (and waist healthy) meal.

Here is the recipe:

· 2 tomatoes, diced
· 1 cup diced cucumber
· 1/4 cup basil
· 2 tsp lime juice
· 2 cloves garlic, minced
· fish of your choice
· olive oil
· salt and pepper

In a large bowl, gently combine tomatoes, cucumber, basil, lime juice and garlic and set aside. Brush fish lightly with oil on both sides and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Grill fish with the skin-side down. Remove fish and serve with tomato salsa spooned over top.

Tomatoes are chock-full of lycopene, an anti-oxidant that helps in the fight against cancerous cell formation, as well as other kinds of health complications and diseases. Many studies have shown the benefits of lycopene, particularly for men and prostate health.
