Eating healthfully should not be considered a luxury, but unfortunately, as more and more ingredients become contaminated with GMOs and chemicals, the cost of organic products continues to rise as a result. So, even without having to keep track of your calorie intake or count every ounce of a particular ingredient, eating healthy can be a difficult task.
Furthermore, if you happen to be suffering from a medical condition or disease, you won’t have a lot of options when it comes to food.
Unfortunately, diabetes is one of those health conditions that necessitates adherence to strict dietary and physical activity guidelines. When dealing with strong emotions, processed foods, or sweets, people with diabetes must keep a close eye on their insulin levels and take appropriate action as needed. You can, on the other hand, live a healthy life if you carefully plan your meals.
So why not pick up that sturdy and useful fishing knife and try one of our delectable diabetic fish recipes instead?
Risotto with halibut fish
This widely consumed food dish is both nutritious and delicious. While it contains the appropriate amount of carbohydrates and proteins, it is neither too greasy nor difficult to digest. Its origins can be traced back to Asian cuisine, but it has gained widespread popularity throughout the Mediterranean region due to the fact that it is both light and straightforward to prepare.
Using white fish meat such as halibut or mahi mahi, as well as a handful of organic basmati rice, wild rice, or any other type of organic rice that you can find in the grocery store, you can make this dish. All you have to do is cook the rice according to package directions, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
To prepare the halibut fillets, heat melted butter and a drizzle of olive oil in a pan over medium heat until the fish is just cooked through. If you want to spice things up a little more, you can add oregano, salt, and pepper. Grilling the fish for a few minutes instead of frying it is a good option if you don’t want to consume the extra calories from the butter or olive oil used in frying.
Following that, you can make a simple and natural sauce by combining freshly squeezed lemon juice, fresh mint, minced garlic, and olive oil in a small saucepan. If you want to improve the flavor, you can also add a tablespoon of honey or soy sauce. Warm the dish and serve it with a lettuce or arugula salad and cherry tomatoes on the side.
Shark and asparagus kebabs
This dish is simple to prepare and will undoubtedly impress your guests at a formal dinner or business meeting. Because both of the ingredients, shark meat and asparagus, cook quickly on the grill, they make an excellent pairing for this dish.
One large grated garlic clove, one tablespoon each of red wine vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, pepper, salt, half a teaspoon of dried dill, asparagus, and one shark medallion cut into thick chunks that won’t melt when placed near the fire are all you’ll need for this straightforward recipe.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic, and dill. Pour the mixture into two separate sealable bags and add the asparagus and shark chunks one at a time, sealing each bag tightly. Allow for marinating and mixing for a few seconds, then place them in the refrigerator for half an hour to marinate even more.
Make the perfect kebabs by skewering the main ingredients together and serving them on skewers. Aside from that, you can add slices of onion or bell pepper to the dish. Place the kebabs on a medium-heated grill and cook for a few minutes, or until the shark meat is a white-brownish color and the asparagus is tender, depending on your preference.
Smoked salmon salad
To prepare dinner if you don’t want to use your brand new fly fishing rod and reel, you can go to your local grocery store and purchase smoked salmon. Our third recipe for diabetics is a light and simple dish to whip up in minutes.
Both nutritious and delicious, the best part is that you can tailor the recipe to your specific tastes and requirements. You’ll need about one ounce of high-quality smoked salmon, lettuce or arugula, onions or scallions, cherry tomatoes or radishes, avocado, and fresh mint or fennel to make this salad, according to the directions on the package.
Nothing more complicated than assembling the ingredients in a bamboo or glass bowl and tossing them with a light dressing made of extra virgin olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt, and freshly ground pepper. Never be afraid to experiment with the ingredients and adjust the recipe to suit your tastes. For example, you can add fresh spinach, quinoa seeds, bell peppers, corn, or feta cheese to the dish.
