OurPlate Score: 10/10                                   Follow & Network on Facebook

This decidedly festive salad meal shows how regional cuisines can be re-purposed to make interesting and extra-healthy meals the HumanaNatura way and following HumanaNatura’s OurPlate natural eating guidelines. In this case, we use a simple white fish prepared Veracruz-style to make a spicy and satisfying salad-meal that is as good for you as it is great-tasting.


Today’s meal starts with white fish fillets marinated refrigerated for a few hours in a Veracuz sauce, which you can buy in many supermarkets or make yourself – either from scratch or beginning with a prepared diced tomato sauce. Once marinated, the fish fillets are separated from the sauce and pan-sautéed on medium-high heat with olive oil for a few minutes on each side. The marinade is then added to the pan and simmered with the fish on medium-low heat for a few minutes more.

As the fish cooks, a salad base and veggie mix is prepared, this time with lightly torn arugula, thin-sliced red onion, diced cucumber, halved grape tomatoes, and some pitted and julienne cut medjool dates we had at hand. When the fish is ready, it’s all combined, garnished simply with black pepper, lemon and parsley, and served promptly, making for a welcome day or evening meal that is at once hot, cool, sweet, and delicious!
