Nutritional values

Although this main meal is not exactly low in calories, plenty of green stars shine in the ES-Food-Check. The protein from the redfish and beans is well utilised by the body and builds up muscles. The vegetables also provide satiating fibre.

If it is not the season for broad beans, take some from the freezer. Broad beans taste delicious even with mint. Simply replace them with basil as you like.
