Greek Snapper: 20 Minute Meal
Greek Snapper is incredibly easy to make and is packed full of flavor. Consequently, I knew it was a must for my latest cookbook which is still Amazon’s #1 Top New Release in its category. So happy!
Doctors and nutritionists around the world recommend that we eat a diet containing at least two servings of fish a week.
Snapper and Other Types of Seafood Are Super Healthy
Seafood is the favored choice because of its health benefits.
Seafood is an excellent source of protein. It’s also low in calorie as well as fat and cholesterol. Seafood is high in polyunsaturated fat and a great source of vitamins and minerals.
Besides seafood’s health benefits, it is easy to prepare. Most seafood dishes are simple, quick, and can be prepared in less than 20 minutes.
There are many medical studies available that associated lower heart disease, diabetes and cancer with a diet that consumes 7 ounces of fish once per week.
Greek Snapper is incredibly easy to make and is packed full of flavor. If you don’t have snapper, no problem. You can substitute any white flaky fish. I hope this dish will become a staple in your home as it is in mine! Happy Cooking.
