Anaheim Fish Tacos Recipe

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Notes:
Spicy, flavorful fish tacos from AllRecipes provide an excellent and authentic alternative to the fried variety you find in restaurants. Add a little cheese, avocado or sour cream if you don’t mind the increased fat, or salsa for texture and flavor, but they’re delicious on their own. Feel free to use other types of fish like tilapia, spicier peppers like jalapenos or even habaneros, or experiment with the spice combination. If you end up with a little extra juice, just cook it down a little and use it like a sauce over the top!

Seafood soup with seaweed Recipe

Friday, October 17th, 2008

Notes:
This soup’s ingredients are plain and simple extremely rich in iodine and beneficial for those who are iodine deficient.  Those who have an under active thyroid can benefit from extra iodine.    Believe it or not, leave vegetables like kale, cabbage and cauliflower out of this recipe as they do NOT assist thyroid function.  The below site is very educational and repeats much of what I have learned from a variety of sources.

http://ezinearticles.com/?Diet-Approach-To-Hypothyroidism&id=840400

Servings: 2

Ingredients:
-Any fish you like. Shrimp, salmon etc. (total protein for 2 people: about 8 ounces)

-onions, garlic
-cut mushrooms (fiber-rich)
-turmeric, cumin, ginger, cayenne, curry, whatever (add spices to desired taste)
-cut seaweed pieces (a little more is better, then a little more) :)
-1/2 c. coconut milk (optional)

Directions:
Add oil to a medium heated pot and add onions and garlic.
Add pieces of fish and cook.
Add mushrooms, shrimp and spices
When fish is cooked (0nce it flakes and shrimp are pink) add broth.
1/2 c. or so of coconut milk (optional)

Quick and simple.

Serve with brown rice, soba noodles or rice noodles if desired.
