Pan Grilled Snapper with Orange Sauce

Share with:

Refreshing orange. Buttery fish. Aromatic Rosemary. Seductive Garlic.  Crunchy Zucchini. A touch of salt & one simple, clean tasting dish of Pan Grilled Snapper with Orange Sauce.  Most of the times the best tasting foods are really that simple.  These are the kind of dishes that keep me hooked to cooking. Simple ingredients are never boring.

When it comes to Fish and Sea food, I prefer clean tasting dishes with the freshest catch from the sea. The best tasting sea food or fish has to be freshly caught for that taste of sea and saltwater. If you find yourself a fresh fish, do make this dish for the health benefits and really refreshing tastes. The reason I paired the fish with Orange was for that really refreshing taste and the fact  that for this week’s power foods blog group we have the Citrus! Yes – The things you need to peel and eat or juice up. Refreshing, full of Vitamin C – Citrus.  It is said that one orange fulfills your daily requirement of Vitamin C. Need more reasons?  They provide you with a a great amount of folate and potassium.  And when you are done eating the fruit,  make a nice marmalade out of the organic peels.

38 Power Foods blog group  focuses on one ingredient each week taking inspiration from the book ; Power Foods: 150 Delicious Recipes with the 38 Healthiest Ingredients from the editors of the whole living magazine. Each week we all  come up with recipes, stories, articles to encourage eating nourishing food.
