Walnut-Crusted Chicken Breasts
Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts add richness to this light breading; the coating keeps the chicken moist. For longer shelf life, store nuts in the freezer.
Ensconced in each of these savory cornmeal tartlets is a bounty of vegetables. On the short list: sweet red bell peppers, assertive kale, and cherry tomatoes that provide bursts of fruitiness and juice.
Flaked Salmon "Tartare"
Experts recommend eating at least two servings of fatty fish, such as salmon, herring, or tuna, per week. In this dish, bold capers and fresh herbs -- classic beef tartare add-ins -- brighten the buttery flavor of flaked baked salmon.
Miso Salmon with Cilantro Salsa
White miso makes a delicious marinade for broiled salmon. A combination of fermented soybeans and either rice or barley, miso is a great source of zinc, a natural immune booster.
Barley Risotto with Shrimp and Peas
A smattering of sweet peas and a good measure of rock shrimp turn a humble bowl of pearl barley into a serious risotto.
Whole-Wheat Pizza with Artichokes
The meaty artichoke hearts provide a nice balance to the light and creamy ricotta cheese. Take premade dough out of the fridge a few hours before you plan on using it, to let it rise.
Snapper with Bell Pepper Salsa
Feel free to tinker with this mildly spicy salsa. Substitute cilantro or fresh basil for the parsley, or any color sweet bell pepper for the red.
