paleo tomato basil mahi mahi

I’m reading about eating for your brain recently and I decided to make this recipe with that in mind. Omega 3’s are super brain food and helping with memory and brain function. In addition to that (if that’s not enough for you) they help reduce inflammation and many of the risk factors associated with heart disease and heart function. It’s a good healthy fat for you.

Salmon is considered to be higher in Omega 3’s than Mahi Mahi, but a good source regardless if that’s what your choosing for dinner. I’ll be honest, I’m not a big fan of salmon, I will eat it on occasion and I prefer it wood-fired. I always cross my fingers that it won’t be too fishy as I typically don’t like it for this reason.

Here’s a very simple Mahi recipe that is also super fast.

You will need:

  • 1-4 wild caught Mahi Mahi filets
  • 1 bag fresh spinach
  • 2 cans of organic diced tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • oregano
  • basil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil

In a large saute pan, heat olive oil to medium heat. Add your diced onion and cook until translucent. Add garlic and 2 can of tomatoes at this point. Season with fresh or dried basil, oregano, and sauté for 5 minutes.

Once that’s had a chance to cook down a bit, season your Mahi filets with salt and pepper on both side and place on top of your tomato mixture. Over a low heat or simmer, allow to cook for 3-4 minutes per side. I covered to steam in flavor a bit.

In another pan, heat olive oil to medium heat and add fresh spinach stirring until all is nicely coated with olive oil. Season with a bit of salt, pepper and garlic. Once thoroughly sautéed, this will be the bed for your Mahi filet. Plate up each filet on top of the spinach and top with a good amount of tomato mixture. You can equally use any other white fish of choice for this recipe.

According to the American Heart Association, it is recommended you eat some sort of fish twice a week. When that is not possible or if you are not a fan of eating fish, don’t fret. You can still benefit from taking Omega 3 fatty acids in pill form. When I want to ensure I’m getting my Omega’s including EPA and DHA, I take Herbalifeline. I take this 2-3 times per day along with a healthy diet and I just call in my insurance.
