Swisschard and Shrimps Drizzled With 🥑 Sauce
I absolutely love cooking with swisschard not only because its a leafy green and it is super nutritious, but because it tastes so good! In this recipe, i have paired it with a great lean protein and a great healthy fat that bumps up the fatty acids, flavour and health benefits. I added large shrimps and creamy avocado to make this a warm, filling and nutritious meal! Add not to mention, its virtually carb-free which is great for those who are counting their carbohydrates! As well, this recipe takes 20 mins and it is great for lunch or for dinner!
For added nutrients and balance, try adding steamed brown rice or quinoa to this dish.
As well, i prefer to purchase my fish fresh and local but if you prefer to buy frozen, select fish that is packed locally as there will be much less chances of it being contaminated.
