Do you think diet food is boring? Then think again.
If you eat Mediterranean food you can have a happy and colourful diet and a very enjoyable one too.
Mediterranean food is widely recognized as very healthy and light; excellent if you want to lose weight as fresh fruit and vegetables, olive oil and plenty of fish are key ingredients.
I grew up with a Mediterranean diet and it is what I enjoy most. If I had to choose I would go for fish rather than meat. It is lighter, easy to digest and very tasty too!
Try this swordfish steak which takes just 15 minutes to prepare and only a few minutes to cook. You can swap swordfish for other types of fish like for instance cod, tuna, haddock or red snapper.
- Prep Time : 15 minutes
- Cook Time : 7 -10 minutes
Chop the parsley, the olives, the garlic and the tomatoes. Rinse the capers under running water
Stir fry the garlic with 2 tbsp of olive oil, then add the fish and cook it for a couple of minutes on one side
Turn it to the other side and add the vegetables, salt and pepper to taste; cook for 4 to 5 minutes until the fish is cooked. Don't over cook it to avoid the fish becoming dry.
Enjoy with a drizzle of olive oil. This is a truly Mediterranean dish!
