Lose weight with American farm-raised catfish

Lose weight with American farm-raised catfish

(NewsUSA) - While the term "healthy fats" may seem like a catch-22, they may be the backstop your willpower needs to lose weight as warmer weather rounds the corner. The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, like those found in U.S. Catfish, include reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke and hypertension. And while any fat is damaging to your waistline when consumed in large quantities, U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is a low-fat, high-protein food that benefits your heart and keeps you satisfied.
Federal dietary guidelines recommend up to two servings of fish a week, a goal easily attained with delicious recipes like Catfish Florentine. Lightly breaded and nestled on a bed of spinach, weight loss never tasted so good.
Catfish Florentine
Four 6- to 7-ounce catfish fillets
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
3/4 cup dried bread crumbs
10 ounces fresh spinach leaves
3/4 cup dry white wine
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 lemon, sliced for garnish
Preheat oven to 325 F.
Place catfish fillets in a baking dish in a single layer. Sprinkle fish with lemon juice, pepper, salt and dill.
Cover fish with bread crumbs. Cover bread crumbs with layer of spinach leaves.
Combine wine and broth and pour into dish, just enough to cover the spinach.
Bake for about 20 minutes.
