I just got a call from my husband…his parents are coming over for dinner. Tonight.healthy eating made easy: thai turbot

I adore my in-laws, so that isn’t the problem. The issue is, well, it’s Friday. The day before I usually go to the store. So I headed to the kitchen to see what I had on hand.

I have wild turbot (a healthier version of tilapia, which is always farmed), coconut milk, several spices, and quinoa. Voila! Thai Turbot!

The coconut milk will give us all an immune boost. Paired with the inflammation-fighter curry, we’ll have a “one pot” meal that’s healthy AND delicious.

Note: You can use any wild white fish for this recipe and swap the quinoa for brown rice.
