You're short on time, energy, ingredients, and patience. Cooking a healthy, nourishing dinner for you (and maybe your loved ones, too) feels akin to climbing Mt. Everest.
We've all been there.
That's when perfect summer recipes like this satiating yet light Barramundi Sea Bass come in handy. With minimal prep and in just a half hour, you can be enjoying a nutrient-dense meal filled with nourishment you need to fuel your fertility journey, wherever on it you may be.*
Whether your mind is on fertility, or you're simply looking out for your overall health and wellness, packing in a TON of quality macro & micronutrients into a single meal is the right way to start. This means you've got to go for nutrient density. Fish is a phenomenal option to use as your protein, and bass and other white fishes in particular are full of:
- Highly bioavailable protein
- Omega 3 fatty acids
The omega-3s factor into your overall nutritional make up in an extremely important way. Specifically, fish is rich in two types of omega-3s: EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). EPA and DHA play a BIG role in fertility and overall health for both men and women, as well as serve a critical function during pregnancy and breastfeeding (and while they are found in many animal proteins and algaes that we consume, a fish oil supplement is always worth looking into!).*
EPA and DHA provide major health benefits, including:
- Promoting liver health & natural detoxification efforts
- Protecting against cancer
- Regulating blood circulation, protecting against cardiovascular disease
- Promoting healthy, full term pregnancies
- Elevating mood postpartum
That said, we chose to include this Barramundi sea bass in our recipe rolodex because, according to The Better Fish, it has one of the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids of any commonly eaten white fish (~960mg per 6 oz serving). Plus, another big bonus of this recipe is that Barramundi Sea Bass is generally a more sustainable option than other types of white fish. In the US, farmed Barramundi will likely be your most reliable source. A fantastic resource to consult is Seafood Watch, which will help you locate the most sustainable fish options in your area.
