Here’s a simple yet elegant seafood recipe. Our Pritikin chefs often use salmon or whitefish; shrimp and scallops are good choices, too.
Pair with a baked potato, sweet potato, or brown rice (try new easy-to-make brown rice bowls – just 90 seconds in the microwave – and the only ingredients are brown rice and water.)
Grass-fed, free-range wild game such as buffalo (bison), elk, and moose are low in saturated fat, less than other red meat options.
Calabaza is a squash from the West Indies with orange flesh that is moister and sweeter than pumpkin. It’s chock-full of nutrition – rich in Vitamin A, C, and potassum, and all for just 35 calories per cup. This Calabaza Risotto delivers rich buttery flavor and a symphony of fresh herb delights, but for only about one-third the calories of regular risotto.
A typical serving of risotto contains nearly 8 grams of heart-damaging saturated fat. That’s more saturated fat than two McDonald’s hamburgers. Our Pritikin Wild Mushroom Risotto has 0 grams of saturated fat, but loads of earthy Italian punch.

This Braised Fish With Marsala, Shiitake Mushrooms, and Tomatoes is a superb party dish. Who needs fat when your entree is infused with the deep rich flavors of Marsala wine and shiitake mushrooms? Excellent fish choices for this recipe are grouper, monkfish, halibut, cobia, or sea bass.
