Simple, Satisfying Fish

People who eat mostly fish and vegetables seem to live longer, according to research on traditional diets of Asia and the Mediterranean. Today’s Health-e-Recipe for Steamed Halibut with Ginger and Green Beans is a prime example of a healthful Asian-style fish dish. Although some fish are endangered or may contain toxins, Pacific halibut is still good bet — or choose another light, white fish such as flounder or the less expensive tilapia. Dietitians say eating two or three servings of fish per week isn’t enough to be harmful to people who are not pregnant or small children (click here for the FDA warnings on fish).

Besides the beneficial omega-3 fats in cold-water fish, this recipe contains fresh ginger, a spice with the phytochemical gingerol, which current laboratory studies suggest may help destroy cancer cells and block cancer-related inflammation. Ginger has long been used for fighting inflammation, nausea and colds. And lowly green beans have a good amount of fiber, plus vitamins A, C and K (important in bone health), plus potassium and folate.

Try this easy recipe once and you’ll want to use it often when you’re beat at the end of a busy day but want a healthful, delicious meal. For more cancer-fighting recipes, visit AICR’s Test Kitchen. Click here to subscribe to weekly Health-e-Recipes.
