Browning the nuts in a small amount of butter adds a rich flavor to this quick dish.Fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids and lean protein. Served over spinach, which is rich in heart-healthy folate, this dish packs a nutrient punch. A small side of whole grain rice is filled with fiber and will keep you full longer.
