OurPlate Score: 10
Whether it is summer and you are by the sea, or not, this salad meal – made the HumanaNatura way and using HumanaNatura’s OurPlate guidelines – will make you feel like you are on a seaside holiday. And not only does the salad provide a burst of summer flavors, it is especially healthy too, because of the specific fish used for the salad’s protein. While most fish is lean and healthy, this time we have selected shellfish from low in the marine food chain – shrimp, scallops, and baby squid – to avoid the high levels of mercury and other toxins often found in large game fish. Using these seafoods also reduces costs, since these varieties of fish are often fairly inexpensive to harvest, and freeze and travel well.
Maybe best of all, especially if you are on summer holiday, this extra delicious and healthy salad meal was made in minutes and is about as tasty as food can get. It begins with a spicy saute of the shellfish we mentioned with a good dash of turmeric, onion and garlic bits, and black pepper. While the saute is cooking, we put together a salad base and mix that included a half-plate of arugula, diced cucumber, sliced mango and avocado, and quartered grape tomatoes. These warm and cool foods were then garnished with pistachios, parsley, paprika, coriander, and black pepper. A terrific meeting of sea and shore, and a model for optimal daily eating!
