Sea bass

This fabulous Steamed Sea Bass with Ginger and Tamari recipe could not come at a better time. Many people suffer from SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder, during winter months and it tends to get worse just before the Spring (yes this is a real thing). Common symptoms are anxiety, sadness, hopelessness and what they call the emotional equivalent of watching paint dry. But not to worry my friends! There’s nothing wrong with you — it’s the weird light-dark cycle of the day winter brings we all dislike. You can combat the effects of SAD by spending more time outdoor (Vitamin D) and eating more Omega 3s. The days are getting warmer (in some places) so try and make an effort to stretch your legs by taking your fur friend for a walk and breathing in the fresh crisp air.

This particular Steamed Sea Bass recipe may sound complicated but it’s actually pretty easy to prepare. I love making it for my kids because it takes me back to my childhood days in Hong Kong when my mother would prepare it for me. I love Asian markets. I love all the strange smells and ingredients. As a culinary artist, I am always looking to reinvent recipes and add a new flare.

The Benefits of Omega 3s
Sea Bass, like most fish, is loaded with Omega 3s which are super important to heart health. Heart disease continues to be a leading cause of death worldwide. By eating foods rich in Omega 3s (such as fish) you can lower blood pressure, reduce blood clotting and decrease the risk of strokes and potential heart failure.

TIP. During winter months, October through March, I especially like to recommend Omega 3 supplements for days you are not able to eat foods rich in Omega 3s.

Omega 3s are also super important to mental health and brain function. According to research conducted at the University of Maryland Medical Center, Omega 3s are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to have a direct effect on cognitive and behavioral brain function.

And last but not least, Omega 3s have a huge impact on your gut health. An incredible medical paper was published last year in US National Library of Medicine noting the direct correlation between diets rich in Omega 3s and gut health, and shed light on its relation to several chronic diseases.

Other foods rich in Omega 3s are Atlantic Mackerel, Alaskan Salmon, Albacore Tuna, White Fish, Anchovies, egg yolks, Chia seeds and walnuts.
