Fish is wrapped around a delicious nut-free pesto and then cooked with a dollop of ghee for a delicious meal that is much more simple to make than it appears. Serve it with an orange juice and olive oil dressed apple and carrot slaw for a refreshing and flavorful side.
I am so excited to share my first recipe creation with all of you wonderful Nourishing Gourmet readers!
In January, I started back to school; studying to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN). I am totally fascinated by all of the new things I am learning. When reading about the Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acid Ratio, I became a little obsessed with getting more fish into my weekly menu plan. In looking at my diet, I knew I was taking in way more Omega-6 than 3. I needed to make some adjustments, which gave birth to this recipe creation.
Stuffing sole is really simple, even though it looks all fancy pants. My kids really go for this kind of thing. Making food seem special or dressy is just fun to them… like stuffing a squash, zucchini or apples.
For this dish, I made a simple pesto using hemp hearts, chives and dill. Hemp hearts are an awesome source of protein and fat. They are quite easily digested and do not need the typical soaking that other nuts and seeds require. We have nut sensitivities in my house, so I use hemp hearts often, like in my favorite salad dressing.
