New year = New Goals (Resolutions)

If you are like me , some of your goals and resolutions are fitness related. For me, it is less about the weight and more about living healthy and getting fit (basically, no more hyperventilating when I go up the stairs). I also want to start incorporating some healthy habits - eating better, infusing some clean and healthy meals into my life.

Anywhere you fall on that getting fit spectrum - I have got a great, delicious and healthy meal for you today. It reminds me a little bit of summer and it is seriously yummy stuff. A Seared fish salad and the best part --- it is served on a bed of corn and black bean salad. This is one of my favorite meals at the moments and pan seared fish, I mean , how can you go wrong - it is my preferred way to make fish. The hardest part of this recipe - is getting the fish marinated That's it, once you have that, everything else is easy peasy.

What you need

For the Salad

  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1/2 cup tomato, diced
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper

For the Fish

  • 2 fillet of Fish (Tilapia), thawed
  • 1/2 tbsp cumin powder
  • handful of fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • handful of fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp sirachi sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Jucie from half lime
  • Green - Spinach, Kale or Lettuce

The Salad

In a mixing bowl, toss together all ingredients for the salad and let it rest in the fridge until fish is ready.

The Fish

Rinse fish and place in a bowl. Combine cumin, sirachi, lime, cilantro , parsley and oil in a bowl, whisk together, then pour over the fish and cover. Place in fridge to marinate for 15 to 20 minutes.

Place grill (or pan) over medium to high heat. Once the surface is heat, place marinated fish fillet in heated pan (surface) and let the heat sear it on wach side for two to three minutes on each sides. Flip the fish over to cook the other side.

Layer it - Start with a layer of greens, then pour a generous amount of corn and bean salad over the greens. Break the fish up and place over the corn and bean. Drizzle with you favorite dressing and enjoy.
