This is one of my favorite way to eat fish! So many amazing flavors and super easy to whip up.
It’s very forgiving and I’ve used mango instead of pineapple and chicken or tilapia instead of salmon.
Speaking of salmon, did you know that it’s recommended to have at least 2 servings or 8 ounces of fish weekly? Fatty fish especially (like salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel, swordfish, and trout) provide EPA and DHA which are long chain omega-3 fatty acids. While ALA (a short chain amino acid) can be found in plant foods like walnuts and flaxseed, the conversion to EPA/DHA is inefficient. So eating fatty fish regularly is the best way to meet our EPA/DHA needs.
