Mackerel with vegetables

by | Jan 30, 2017 | Recipes | 0 comments

Once a week, I keep cooking more easier than usual. For that, I always have frozen vegetables and canned steamed mackerel.

At home, we always eat oily fish, such as mackerel, more than once a week. Mackerel is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids a type of fat that is good for our health. It is a good source of protein, selenium and vitamin B12.

My kids love having mackerel with some peas and broccoli. These veggies are rich in vitamin K needed for blood clotting, which means it helps wounds to heal properly.

This recipe is an easy and wholesome way to eat your veggies and fish at any time.
