Eating healthy is super important to me to live a quality life. It’s the way I chose to treat my body and in return I feel fabulous and full of energy! I wouldn’t want it any other way!!When you are healthy you tend to be happy! Life is too short not the make the best of it and that is the way I look at it! The chef inspired in me and health sensible wanted to create a delicate, mild and creamy fish dish that is sure to impress and satisfy anyone but won’t stretch the waste line! This is the most simple, healthy and yet elegant way to eat Trout! I am a simple person and have learned over the last 25 years of cooking that less is more and most healthy recipes tend to be fewer ingredients, simple and packed with the most nutrients. I created this dish by incorporating a little cream with our Florida fresh mangos and citrus that we have so much of locally with my fresh catch of the day! If you can’t catch it yourself like I did no problem Trout is now available in all major supermarkets in their fresh seafood counters or in their freezer area at least the farm raise trout are. So go ahead impress yourself and your guest by making this one at your next dinner party. It’s super healthy and packed with fresh ingredients but not skinny on the taste!
