Asian Seafood Cannelloni
Nutrition experts advise eating sea fish or crustaceans twice a week to cover the iodine requirements. They are rich in the mineral that is essential for the thyroid gland to function as the control organ of the energy balance. In addition, both provide easily absorbed protein and unsaturated fatty acids for an undisturbed blood circulation.
Steaming is the most taste- and vitamin-friendly of all cooking methods. If you cook broccoli or romanesco over steam with the fish and shrimp cannelloni as a side dish, you also get plenty of fibre and vitamins.
