Tuna is a great low-fat protein source. It is a good detoxifier and immune booster. If you can’t get fresh tuna use some fresh salmon instead. It has all the basic merits that tuna has. Tuna contains ‘essential fatty acids’ such as omega-3 that are anti-inflammatory helping to reduce pain. Omega-3 is good for burning excess fat, stabilizing blood sugar levels. These essential fatty acids keep the circulatory system healthy, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure and protects against stroke. This fish is rich in selenium, an important antioxidant attacking free-radicals and removing toxins from the body.
As a stand-by have canned tuna in water or canned wild salmon in your cupboard. Canned tuna is not as good as fresh tuna but is certainly handy when you are in a hurry.
Tuna and Lemongrass Marinade
3 or 4 fresh lemongrass stalks chopped,
large onion chopped finely,
smash a garlic clove,
grate a piece of fresh ginger (1 or 2 inches depends how much you like it),
½ tablespoon of tamari (it is salty, so there should be no need to add salt),
a little coconut oil,
fresh ground pepper
Mix all the ingredients together and pour over the fish and leave in the refrigerator for a few hours or better still over night. The fish can then be grilled on a BBQ or baked in the oven. Baked in the oven a fillet will take about 7 to 8 minutes.
The protein from fish is much easier to digest that the protein from meat. Try to eat various types of fish more often.
