So, I have been trying to eat healthier these past few weeks. Fish and beans are a great meal as it is a perfect mixture of protein and vitamins! In this recipe, I have used white pacific fish, which I was trying for the first time, but there are tastier fishes that can be used, like tilapia and salmon. Everything is pan fried on one single pan, this making the cooking and clean up relatively easy. The flavors and spices used are minimal too which enables you to enjoy the flavors more I believe on some occasions. Capers helps to bring a salty and aromatic flavor to the dish and the red chili flakes add some heat to the beans.

1)In a pan, add some peanut oil. Once the pan is hot, add the red chili flakes and minced garlic. Sauté till the garlic turns brown and the oil is aromatic.
2)Then add the green beans to the pan and sauté with a little salt and pepper along with the red wine vinegar. Sauté till the beans are wilted and cooked well.
3)Then add the beans on a plate and fry the fish on the pan skin side down after seasoning with a little salt and pepper.
4)Add some capers and use a spoon to pour the caper juice on the fish fillets.
5)Fry the fish till they turn golden brown in color. Then add it on top of the green beans for a quick and easy, healthy dinner. Enjoy! 🙂
