This high protein, low carb dish gives an exotic twist on an other wise boring dish of fish and rice. It is not too spicy but you can make it hotter by adding a little cayenne. Fish is naturally high in protein and Omega 3. Try pairing this dish with Cauliflower Rice Pilaf and a nice glass of Chardonnay.
