If you are health concious and getting older, this meal is a very excellent lunch or dinner alternative.

Very balanced in nutrients, I wouldn’t say it is a dietary dish, I eat it regularly.

Balanced nutrients are very important. If you are getting older, your body needs protein to maintain a desired testosteron level to fight against fats.

No testosteron, no effective metabolism and fat burning.

1 fish fillet provides 20 g protein, the zucchini gives you the desired carbs and vitamins you need.

If you need more protein for lunch, grill two fillets.

Ingredients

1 seabass fillet

1 tbsp lemon juice

salt and black pepper

1 tbsp olive oil

1 handful courgette spaghetti

2 tbsp green pesto

2 tbsp grana padano, grated

1 tbsp olive oil

Salt,black pepper, chili flakes, vegetable stock powder

lemon wdges to garnish

Method

First grill the fish on 1 tbsp olive oil skin side down, season with salt and and black pepper, put it aside while you make the spaghetti.

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in your pan or wok. Add 2 or more green pesto as you like and fry for 1 minute. Throw one handful of zucchini spaghetti in the pan and stir fry on high heat. Season with salt, black pepper and vegetable stock powder. Dont cook until the spaghetti leaves its juices. Just warm the spsghetti.

Arrange the fish fillets on a plate with the zucchini spaghetti and scatter generously with grated grana padano.

Enjoy!
