A recipe in the January issue of Food & Wine caught my eye. They made theirs with penne pasta and flaked the swordfish. Here I serve the intact filet over white beans. The swordfish is braised in a zesty tomato sauce with anchovy, garlic, jalapeño, capers and white wine.
Heart Healthy Wild Salmon, Cannellini Bean Basil Broth
I having been preparing and photographing some heart healthy dishes. This one is a flavorful low-fat/low-sodium chicken broth with cannellini beans, minced garlic sautéed in extra virgin olive oil, with rough chopped fresh basil. This earthy soup is topped with crispy-skin fresh wild salmon rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
Health Benefits of Cannellini Beans
These beans are low-fat, high in fiber and provide a high quality of magnesium, fiber, iron and folate. They help cut cholesterol. The beans fiber binds to fat to help flush it from the body. It’s also loaded with folate which helps lower levels of homocysteine, which clogs arteries. From Today’s Women & Health.
