tablespoon olive oil and a little extra for drizzling

¼ tablespoon sugar

227g can chopped tomatoes

Healthy Dinner Ideas (3)Method

Heat the oil in a pan and add the onion and pepper. Fry for about 10-15 minutes until soft, then crush half the garlic and add to the pan, together with the tomatoes, paprika, vinegar, sugar, seasoning and beans. Simmer and cook for another 10-15 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Toast the bread, rub with the other piece of garlic and drizzle with some oil, but only a little. Scoop the beans and put them over the toast, drizzle with a little more olive oil then scatter over the parsley.

  • Pan-seared fish tacos

Ingredients

Salt

1 avocado, diced

2 limes, quartered

1 peach, diced

Freshly ground black pepper

cup finely cut red cabbage

8 corn tortillas

1 pound of fresh grouper

¼ cup of diced red onion

2 tablespoons canola oil

Method

Dry the fish with paper towels then season both sides with some salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a large pan. When the oil starts to ripple, add the fish, flesh side down. Cook each side for 3-5 minutes. You’ll see the fish begin to whiten around the bottom and the outsides as it cooks. Now remove the fish and cut it into 8 equal portions.

Assemble the tacos: each tortilla should be topped with fish, avocado, peach, cilantro, onion, cabbage and a generous portion of squeezed lime juice.

  • Easy sesame salmon

1 large clove garlic, minced.

2-3 tablespoons of white sesame seeds

2 tablespoons of rice vinegar

1 teaspoon minced ginger root

2 tablespoons of low-sodium soy sauce

2-3 skinless wild salmon fillets

Take the garlic, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger and chili flakes and put them in a zip-top bag. Allow them to marinate for an hour.

Preheat the oven to exactly 375 degrees.

Put some sesame seeds on a plate, then lay the salmon fillets on them, face down, so as to coat the top.

Put the crusted salmon on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Now bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet.
