“ Your body is a finely tuned vehicle. Give it good fuel and it will take you places” 

This was an absolutely delicious dish. Very simple to make but absolutely delicious and tasty nonetheless.

Haddock has a great amount of omega three fatty acids and is extremely high in protein. The fatty acids from fish are perfect for aiding and promoting recovery from high intensity exercise.

The combination with the feta Cheese is also one that proved inspiring as it added some delicious flavours to both the fish and the tomato sauce. Feta is also high in protein and extremely high in calcium, therefore this is a terrific dish to enjoy after working out or strenuous exercise.

A good little recovery meal.
