Today, we have a special guest post from Felicia McClinton, author of mediterraneanrecipes.org!  She has been gracious enough to share with us a healthy Mediterranean recipe from her kitchen. Enjoy!


Ingredients :

  • 600 grams (1.3 pounds) of Swordfish
  • 200 grams (7 ounces) of tomatoes
  • 1 onion

  • 1 clove garlic

This recipe can make 4 servings and you can prepare it in 25 minutes. Swordfish Sicilian is a typical dish in the southern Italian region. This recipe creates a low fat and low calorie meal.


To clean and peel the tomatoes, briefly place them in boiling water. Chop the onion and garlic. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan then add the chopped onion and garlic until golden brown. Place the sliced Swordfish in the frying pan and cover it. Put the peeled tomatoes in after a few minutes. Cook for at least 10 minutes. Sprinkle chopped parsley and black olives on top before removing the Swordfish from the pan. Serve while still hot.

Boost Your Health with Delicious MediterrAsian Recipes!

The Mediterranean and Asian diets are two of the healthiest diets world-wide.  Compared to people with typical “Western” lifestyles, people with Mediterranean or Asian lifestyles tend to live longer, healthier lives.

Mediterranean and Asian dishes are flavorful, delicious, and extremely healthy. So, why not add some delicious Mediterranean and Asian recipes to your repertoire? I recently discovered MediterrAsian.com and it has introduced me to a wide array of new, delicious recipes!  Although many of the recipes contain some new ingredients, I have found all of the recipes so far to be very do-able. And, if you just can’t find an ingredient (like fish sauce), no worries! It will still taste scrumptious without it.

Check out some of the recipes I’ve tried:


Thai Red Chicken Curry: “Melt-in-the-mouth morsels of chicken breast and assorted vegetables cooked in a spicy Thai red curry sauce and served with fluffy Jasmine rice.”

My assessment: Great!  I added some extra veggies as well, like eggplant and spinach.  Go easy on the curry if you’re sensitive to spice!


South Indian Shrimp Curry. “Tender shrimp gently  poached in an a flavorsome gravy infused with an aromatic blend of spices, fresh cilantro and lemon juice served over Basmati rice.”

My assessment: Very good, but the shrimp flavor was a little overpowering. Next time, I’ll try with chicken.


Tofu & Cashew Chow Mein. “Crunchy cashews and vegetables complement the soft texture of the noodles and tofu in this quick and satisfying dish.”

My assessment: Terrific! This one has become a regular on my menu. I use whole wheat spaghetti instead of the chow mein noodles, and usually sub peanuts for the cashews.


Spanish Broccoli & Almond Soup: “The combination of ground almonds and broccoli makes a deliciously creamy, yet creamless soup with a rich, green color.”

My assessment: I was surprised to find… I really liked this soup! At first, when I was boiling all the ingredients, I thought uh-oh—this stuff looks (and smells) pretty nasty. I didn’t see how in the world pureeing it all in a blender would save the soup, but low and behold, it did! Over the week, I enjoyed every last drop of the entire pot. So, now matter how sketchy it looks when you’re cooking it—finish it!

So, there you have the 4 dishes I have tried, and many more are on my future line-up! Have fun browsing all of their awesome recipes at http://www.mediterrasian.com/delicious_recipes.htm.
