Switching to a vegan lifestyle when you’ve been a carnivore your whole life can be tough–you may have even tried once or twice before. Many see it as too restrictive or hard to follow. But what if you adopted a seagan diet? Seagan Eating, the new guidebook from Amy Cramer and Linda McComsey, offers readers advice and recipes that make the switch to a healthier lifestyle not so daunting. A plant-based foundation with seafood added in a few times a week, the seagan diet is a nutritious way to help you lean away from a meat-heavy lifestyle.
One of the publicists from our team decided to try out a recipe from the book for Southwestern Halibut. It was a delicious success! Keep reading for the recipe and photos.
Southwestern Halibut in Foil
Done before you can say olé!
4 Pacific halibut fillets, about 4 ounces each
1 ½ cups chopped fresh tomatoes
¾ cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
¾ cup canned corn, drained
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
½ teaspoon salt
- Preheat the oven to 425°.
- Place each fillet in the center of a 9-by-12-inch piece of foil. Scrunch the foil around the fish, making it into a package with high sides.
- In a small bowl, combine the tomatoes, beans, corn, cilantro, and salt. Spoon the tomato mixture over each fish fillet. Close the foil on top to make a loose package.
- Place each package on a baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes.
- Place a mound of brown rice on each dinner plate. Pour each fish packet over the rice.
