Im finally in the stretch of wedding planning Ive always dreamed of selecting the food! Were going to have generous hors doeuvres versus a sit-down dinner, because we want to encourage mingling and dancing. So the food has to be not only delicious and relatively healthful, but finger-friendly. We absolutely want a sushi bar and are also considering a mini-burger (salmon, turkey, lamb, and veggie) bar with sweet potato fries. In honor of this yummy idea, and because I had a leftover potato from fish and chips, I made a mini version of my favorite salmon burger recipe and a baked potato for dinner last night. As you know, I love these burgers that burst with fish-based omega-3s. I keep a few pouches of boneless, skinless salmon in my pantry and all times in case a craving strikes.
And for more on the omega-6s in fish debate that I mentioned yesterday, look up the article, “Catfish and tilapia: Healthy or harmful?” from the RDs at the Mayo Clinic. They conclude, My take? I’m going to continue to eat fish at least twice weekly. I’m going to choose a variety of fatty fish including tilapia and catfish along with others especially high in the good fats such as salmon, tuna and mackerel.
