Pan-Fried Turmeric Fish

Fish, no matter how you slice it, is a superior protein.  What fat it contains is the omega 3 good kind that lubricates your joints plus it is quick to cook. Yet another study came out this week outlining that consuming fish once a week protects your brain. The added bonus with this recipe is that it is “breaded” in a whole wheat/turmeric coating.  Together, they create a crispy crust that is delicious, yes, but the real benefit is that turmeric is a potent anti-cancer spice that is also making good news headlines. (excerpted from Ace Your Health, 52 Ways to Stack Your Deck)

Preparation time: 12 minutes                                                              Servings: 4

1  egg

1 lb catfish fillets

2 tbsp turmeric (or curry powder)

2 tbsp whole-wheat flour

¼ tsp  sea salt

¼ tsp white pepper

1tbsp  butter

1 tbsp  grapeseed oil


Beat egg in a shallow bowl with 1 tbsp of water. Mix together turmeric, whole-wheat flour, sea salt and white pepper in a separate bowl. Dredge fish in egg and then set into turmeric/flour mixture, turning to coat. Warm a large skillet over medium-high heat and add butter and oil. Quickly add the coated fish. Cook for 2-3 minutes and turn once to cook through for 2-3 more minutes. Set fish onto paper towel to absorb any excess fat.

I love food, try to watch my weight, know more than I want to about healthy living (sometimes I wish I knew less so I wouldn’t feel so guilty when I stumble), am a daughter, sister, friend, mom and wife who worries and scurries the meals onto the table. It is for all these reasons that I completed my nutrition, RNCP designation, wrote my book, hosted my Food Network show, consult with food companies to urge them to get it right (or at least better), constantly write about it, research it, all of this so I can cut through the nutrition and food “news” clutter. Happy to share with friends!
