Recipe: Turmeric Fish with Sweet Potato and Avocado (GF, DF, Low res)


It has been absolutely ages since I posted a recipe so thought I’d upload this simple but yummy lunch time dish. Sea bass is my absolute favourite type of fish and I managed to find it reduced in Waitrose so thought I’d treat myself! I’m trying to eat more avocado (unlike most health bloggers, I am not a huge fan but I know I need more fats in my diet!) so I added 1/2 of one  along with a little bit of sauerkraut ((read this blog on how to introduce sauerkraut into your diet) and served it with a sweet potato. To give the fish a bit of flavour I used a spice mix from a company called Go Spice– who I discovered at the Big Feastival over the Summer. It’s a mix of turmeric, coriander, cinnamon, ginger and a few other spices– I have used it loads since buying it but, of course, you can always flavour the fish with separate herbs and spices whatever you have to hand. 

If you are low residue: avocado and sweet potatoes have been labelled ok on most low-res guides; when cooked and peeled. Sauerkraut is not allowed on low-residue but you might want to try a drizzling of the juice of sauerkraut on your fish to increase probiotics (more on this here) without the fibre.

If you are on slimming world: Omit the avocado and use courgette. The coconut oil should be two syns and the sweet potato, courgette, sauerkraut, fish and spices are all syn free.
