Foodie Thursdays - Fish and Chia


This week has been a little bit busy and yesterday I got a little bit sick so cooking wasn't my desire at all. Also, I wasn't feeling like eating chicken or meat so I decided to make this Baked Fish Fillet recipe.

Living in the UAE I always feel like we don't eat enough fish or seafood. One of my childhood memories was going with my parents to this restaurant in Lisbon, where we used to get stuffed with seafood. I remember the crab, shrimps, shellfish and we used to finish with the creamy seafood soup. We only go in the end of the month when was salary day. So we were always waiting for day 30 of the month. That was good memories. If anyone is reading this post from Portugal the restaurant is Eduardo das Conquilhas.

White fish fillet is relatively cheap and easy to cook. You just throw the fish in the oven with some spices, bake and its' done. 
When I get in this mood there is only one thing that saves me: Sweets! And to satisfy my cravings without too much damage I went for a Chia seed pudding.
I just discovered the benefits of Chia seeds. These little seeds are packed with omega 3 fatty acids, Iron, Calcium, and Vitamin C. For me the best benefit is that they help with digestion and can absorb up to 30 times their water volume helping with bloating.
