Roasted Cod

Love to eat cod? Try this recipe from the Huffington Post for Roasted Cod with Warm Tomato-Olive-Caper Tapenade.

Cod is  a mild tasting fish low in fat and high in vitamins A, D, and E.  It’s also a terrific source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, cod liver oil is where these vitamins and omega-3 comes from. Tomatoes are high in antioxidants and especially rich in lycopene. Lycopene may protect agains macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness as we age. It also may protect against some cancers and evidence does show that has some protective effects against prostate cancer.

Olives contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients.  Olives also contain hydroxytyrosol which may protect against cancer and bone loss. And, as probably know olives are a great source of healthy mono-unsaturated fats. Shallots (onion family) are high in quercetin, a flavonoid. Quercetin is antioxidant possibly protective against cancers, and enhances cardiovascular health by improving nitric oxide levels.
