This great little trick was learned from chef Stephen Field, the brother of our colleague Dr. Catherine Field. Stephen does a lot of recipe development thinking about people with heart disease and diabetes, so he has a great understanding of how to make food tasty and fresh without a lot of added salt, fat and sugar.
What is the trick? Keep a lemon on hand – and squeeze a little lemon juice here and there – not just on fish – but on other meats, salads and cooked vegetables.
If you’re interested in some of Stephen’s other tricks, here’s a video that was made when he did a cooking demo for us a few years ago. (Note that the actual demo starts about 4 minutes in.) http://albertadiabetesfoundation.com/videos/diabetes-and-nutrition-cooking-demo/
