A healthy, delicious meal

Although this is by no means a cooking blog, readers may be interested in knowing about this wonderful combination of foods that we discovered quite by accident in our house. Try this for dinner one evening. Start with basa, a flavourful fish related to the catfish from the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. It is also known as iridescent shark. Bake until tender. Then take red swiss chard, also known as mangold leaves, and boil/steam them until tender. (The red variety tastes better than the white.) Finally, cook jasmine rice, an aromatic rice from Thailand. Use two portions of water to one portion of rice and cook until the water has evaporated. Squeeze lemon over the basa and the chard. Dress all three with extra virgin olive oil, preferably from Greece. It's a delicious and healthy meal. Bon appetit! Καλή όρεξη!
