South Beach Recipes of the Week: Fish

Every Saturday I like to spotlight some low glycemic index recipes I find on other food blogs. If you don't know about the glycemic index, it's what the South Beach Diet is based on. This week I'm focusing on some great looking recipes for fish. All these recipes are great for any phase of the South Beach Diet, but if you're not on a diet, just eat them for the great taste!

I loved the sound of this recipe for a balsamic sauce sweetened with Splenda that I found at A Fridge Full of Food. South Beach dieters will want to skip the white bread served with the Blue Hake with Balsamic Syrup, but otherwise this is a great meal for the any phase of the South Beach Diet.

The Smitten Kitchen in New York City is where Deb creates her kitchen magic, and I loved the sound of this Tuna Salad made with canned tuna, scallions, pepperoncini, pine nuts, and a spicy mustardy dressing. Everything here is perfect for South Beach, and Deb even prefers making it with tuna packed in water, all the better.

Christine of Christine Cooks is wondering why so many people haven't discovered the great taste of Tilapia, and I agree. I've enjoyed it every way I prepared it. Christine cooked this delicious looking Pan Seared Tilapia with a simple pan sauce, and reports it turned out great.

Wild salmon is always a treat, but this Tequila Lime Salmon from Karina of Recipes from a Gluten Free Goddess sounded especially good. Karina served it with wilted spinach and braised Belgian Endive for a great South Beach diet or gluten-free meal.

Those are some of the many great South-Beach friendly recipes I spotted this week. If you're looking for Weekend Herb Blogging, it's home at Kalyn's Kitchen this week.

  3. Thanks so much for featuring my tilapia recipe here Kalyn. I see from the other fish dishes that I'm in great company!

  4. Thanks for showing my hake and balsamic vinegar syrup sauce. I'm tellin' ya, if more people ate that sauce, there'd be peace in the world. :-) You just can't be unhappy while you're eating those flavors. Or maybe that's just me...

  5. Lip-smacking! TILAPIA is also on the top of my fave fishes' list! :)
