Last time we talked about taking care of you joints by eating the right foods for joint health. This week I have an easy, healthy recipe that features three of the foods I talked about: fish (for omega-3s), olive oil, and garlic.
This is a truly customizable recipe that you could vary based on the fish or vegetables that you have on hand or want to use. I used wild salmon because it’s among the highest in omega-3s (about 1,000 mg per 3-ounce cooked portion) compared to other types of fish, and I used green beans because they are in season in my area. You could easily make this same recipe with tilapia or cod, asparagus or sliced summer squash (zucchini or yellow squash). You could even use broccoli and/or cauliflower to get some of those cruciferous vegetables that support joint health.
Fresh or frozen fish will work in this recipe. If the fish is frozen, be sure to defrost it completely in the refrigerator for 4-12 hours before making the recipe.
Serve it by itself or with some roasted potatoes or cooked quinoa. Enjoy!

Note: the cooking time may vary depending on the type and thickness of fish used. Thinner fish will cook in less time while thicker fish will require more time. If not using salmon, begin checking fish after 10 minutes per inch of thickness. It is done when is no longer translucent in the center, feels somewhat firm, and flakes easily with a fork.
