This Bahamian dish features fresh fish fillets marinated in a flavourful blend of spices, grilled to perfection, and served with a side of rice and peas, garnished with fresh microgreens for a burst of freshness and nutrition.
Fish provides protein and omega-3 fatty acids, while rice and peas offer carbohydrates and fibre. Microgreens add extra vitamins and minerals, making this dish not only delicious but also nutritious.
Rocket Microgreens: Rocket microgreens have a peppery flavour with a hint of nuttiness. They add a fresh, bold taste and a crisp texture to the grilled fish. Rocket microgreens are rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as folate and calcium, providing an extra nutritional boost to the dish.**
