Fish are friends....AND food.

Ahh fish. A food I love to eat but am not always super excited to make. Why? Fish can be so hit or miss. The nutritional benefits are off the charts -omega 3's, vitamin D, countless vitamins and minerals. But it can also stink up your kitchen and make your husband turn up his nose at the dinner you've prepared. Recently, the Hubs and I have been trying to add more fish into our weekly meal plans.

Tilapia is our go-to choice, because of the nutritional stats and its easier on the wallet than some of the other types. We do love a good salmon filet every now and then though! We've discovered a healthy way to make our fish taste better. Because who likes a bland piece of white fish?

Alas, our creamy fish sauce.

Its so easy its stupid. Are you ready for it? Here ya go:

My favorite brand from King Soops.

Start with some non-fat greek yogurt.
Add what ever spices/juices you like.
Add to your fish once it is finished cooking.

Sound easy enough? It is! The greek yogurt packs an extra punch of protein to a delicious meal.

We've been experimenting with some different flavor combos. Our recent faves to add to our greek yogurt:

-lime juice, worchestershire (how to heck do you pronounce that?), onion powder

-lemon juice, garlic, soy sauce

-cumin, chili powder, garlic

-lemon juice, parsely, salt and pepper

-Mrs. Dash Southwestern Chipotle, lime juice

Any of these creamy sauces on top of any kind of fish, some brown rice, and edamame has become a staple in our weekly rotation.

Any other flavor combo suggestions? Let me know if you try it!
