Rooty ‘fruity’ freshness, against a crispy yet succulent beautiful piece of fish. It looks dramatic and punchy, and trust me, the flavour will not disappoint! What an unexpected yet great combination of flavours, made all the better by simply blending the Beetroot with some Sheep Yoghurt. The well-seasoned Sweet Potato Crisps bring some sweet starchy heaviness to what would otherwise be a very light dish. The Sauerkraut salad brings an almost Eastern European twist with its pickled sharpness. A light dish all year round, but would be particularly on point in summer! 😋
For a smaller portion, halve the Beetroot, Sheep Yoghurt and Butter, and go with one Sea Bass Fillet and 200g Sweet Potato. This would save you 345 calories, without compromising on the flavours or nutritional goodness whatsoever.
Cooking Time: 25mins
- Sea Bass (with skin) – 2x fillets
- Grass Fed Butter – 10g (add 15g to the pan)
- Sweet Potato – 320g
- Rice Barn Oil – 1x teaspoon
- Beetroot – 150g
- Organic Sheep Yoghurt – 50g
- Cucumber – 100g
- Carrots – 2x medium
- Sauerkraut – 2x tablespoon
- To season – Sea Salt & Black Pepper
- Sea Bass is low in calories and an excellent source of protein, selenium, essential omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins B12 and B6
- Beetroot is a good source of iron, nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants, in addition to helping lower blood pressure and boost exercise performance.
- Sweet Potato offers a nice hit of vitamin A, C, Copper, K & B6, plus has a lower blood sugar response than white potato due to its high fibre content that slows the absorption of the carbs.
- Sauerkraut is one of the best prebiotics combined with being probiotic due to the fermentation process. Next to no calories, but so incredibly good for promoting good gut health and a happy microbiome.
- Sheep Yoghurt contains about twice the protein and fat of cow’s milk, but this also means twice the ‘healthy’ fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated, including Omega 3 & 6). The body needs healthy fats for many bodily functions, like absorbing vitamins. These healthy fats lower in the lactose burden, making it extremely gentle on the digestive system and provides a higher dose of many vitamins compared to cow’s milk.
- Carrots are a rich source of Beta carotene – a powerful antioxidant that can also be converted into vitamin A in the body to help maintain healthy skin.
- Grass-Fed Butter is a great source of healthy-fats that promote optimal health and hormone production. Furthermore, Butter contains only trace amounts of lactose.
