I can not stress enough that weight loss diet food need not be bland and boring. A well marinated whole pomfret cooked to perfection with minimal oil, served with Stir Fried Mushrooms, Stir Fried Vegetables or Salads is a great example of this. For me diet food is something that provides adequate nutrition, satiates hunger and reduces the calorie intake.
While I was on a weight loss diet , my nutrition coach Pooja used to design my weekly plans taking into account my work and travel plans so that I could eat healthily where ever I was. When travelling on work , my lunch used to be a steamed or grilled fish with a large portion of salad.
Pomfret is a smaller fish compared to Seer or King Fish and is ideal for cooking a whole Fish as a meal. The white meat is delicate and cooks very fast. The Skin of the fish makes it very presentable, too. The taste of Pomfret is mild and not very “fishy”. It is also not very difficult to eat and can be served to those who are not adept in removing fish bones. If eaten with a little care you can leave the entire bone-structure in the plate ( it will take a little practice )
