Discover what happens when you combine protein-loaded cod with skillet-sizzled cherry tomatoes
“A great deal of work remains to move Americans toward seafood consumption at current recommended levels,” states a 2014 study published in the journal Nutrients.
That’s a nice way of saying: “You need to eat more damn fish.”
Yes, that’s because fish contains heart-healthy omega-3s. But it’s also because fish is high in protein, that magical stomach-filling nutrient that can simultaneously help you build muscle and shrink your gut. Plus, it’s delicious—so long as you know how to cook it.

1/2 tsp chopped thyme
1 cup mixed cherry tomatoes
1/2 lemon, sliced
