Healthy Eats: Dijon Parmesan Broiled Fish

Fish is such a healthy protein choice. It has many health benefits and includes several important nutrients like Vitamin D and Omega-3 fatty acids. Eating fish on a regular basis has been shown to lower your risk of heart attacks and strokes, protect the brain from age related deterioration, reduce the risk of diabetes, protect your vision, and improve your sleep quality. It also tastes great, is usually low in fat, cholesterol and calories, and it can be prepared in a variety of ways! For the Dijon Parmesan Broiled Fish, we used Mahi Mahi and Porgy; howerver, any white fish will work nicely with this recipe.

To prepare, blot your fresh or defrosted fish dry with paper towel. Place your fish on a tinfoil lined baking sheet. Use a spoon to spread a thin layer of Dijon mustard onto the fish. Sprinkle with dried basil, parsley, garlic powder and pepper. Top with shredded Parmesan cheese. Broil the fish on high for 10-12 minutes depending on thickness. Squeeze a fresh lemon on the Dijon Parmesan Broiled Fish before serving. This dish pairs nicely with roasted green beans & cherry tomatoes and white rice.
