Happy Summer! I hope my newsletter finds you enjoying the warmer months of the calendar year. Its hard not to think of the beach when I think of summer; and when I think of the beach I think of seafood-Lobster, Muscles, Shrimp and Halibut just to mention a few! On a recent trip to the beaches of Cape Cod I was able to get my fix of a few of my favorites…As well as dive into a few good beach reads! Enjoy some of the nutritional benefits of fish, a new recipe to try, and few books I recommend! 

LOBSTER
A great souse of B vitamins, zinc, omega 3 fatty acids, and all of your essential animo acids. Lobster, like other shellfish, have a reputation of being high in cholesterol–which is true-however; cholesterol does not raise your blood cholesterol the way saturated fat does

HALIBUT
Full of tons of micronutrients including selenium, vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and niacin, halibut is a flaky and mild white fish. High in protein and low in fat and carbohydrates, its a great introductory fish for those just getting their feet wet!

RECIPE: DIJION CRUSTED HALIBUT

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon prepared Dijon-style mustard 
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice  
  • ¼ cup dry bread crumbs 
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese 
  • 4 (4 ounce) fillets halibut 
  • 1 tablespoon margarine, melted
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish, and lemon juice. Stir in bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Arrange fish fillets on the prepared baking sheet and spread bread crumb mixture evenly over fish. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork

BOOKS
Hard to think of the beach without a book! I recently finished The People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry (I read Beach Read by her last summer) and Golden Girl by Elin Hilderbrand (same author as 28 Summers). LOVED them! Currently I am reading Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid…
