NOURISHING NELLI | FISH SALAD | FUNCTIONAL NUTRITON | CULINARY MEDICINE
… all you can wish for plus more when it comes to a nourishing and tasty salad!
Throw together this simple SUPER SNAPPER SALAD for a quick meal that’s full of flavor and overflowing with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals!
The star nutrients of this dish are the fresh omega-3 packed fish and combination of various vegetables, all topped with my staple dressing “Roasted Red Dressing” that give you an such a robust Italian taste! think pizza, but without the bloated feeling and belly ache afterwards!
Asparagus are full of prebiotic fiber to help nourish the digestive tract, feed your beneficial bacteria, and keep everything running smoothly.
I use a bed of fresh romaine and celery for two sources of hydrating vegetables that help create EZ water in our cell’s, giving our mitochondria a boost of energy!
The purple fingerling potatoes used are a starchy root vegetable and are full of antioxidants; just look at their bright hue due to the high content of polyphenols! These little potatoes provide you with carbohydrates and B vitamins; both important in regulating your metabolism.
The sauce is a quick blend and is full of monounsaturated healthy fats from the olive oil; important for nutrient absorption and heart health. It’s the Roasted Red Bell Dressing that you can find in the Condiments section of the NN Index or, lined here!
I threw a large piece of red snapper on top for a source of protein, as well as, selenium and omega-3 fats. These nutrients are great for supporting brain health and hormonal balance. If you can’t get your hands on a piece of snapper… Any white fish pairs well: halibut, cod, haddock, or tilapia are all sustainable choices.
