Steamed Snapper & Asian Greens

This fragrant fish with an Asian twist will go down a treat.  The snapper will give your family plenty of bioavailable protein, omega 3, choline, selenium along with vitamins B5, B6 and B12.  

Along with broccoli, the bok choy is one of the most nutrient-dense vegetables.  They provide folate, potassium and vitamin A and K. The bell peppers, ginger and scallions boost vitamin C, and the coconut oil gives an island flavour.  You might feel like you’re on a tropical getaway by the ocean.
