What to Eat Wednesday: Shrimp, Cod and Clams!

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Up the ante on your fish dinner with the help of shrimp and clams!Fish is a great dietary staple for anyone trying to eat healthier, especially for diabetic patients! It can be tricky to get used to fish, however, so I like to find recipes that make this health star more palatable. Check out this Pheasant’s Fish Stew from Everyday Diabetic Recipes—the shrimp and clams are nice little bonus ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes, undrained and quartered
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup clam juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound cod fillets, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined, with tails left on

Directions

  1. Spray a 6-qt. soup pot with nonstick cooking spray and heat over high heat.
     
  2. Add the mushrooms, onions, and garlic, and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender, stirring often.
     
  3. Stir in the tomatoes, wine, clam juice, basil, oregano, bay leaf, and pepper and bring to a boil.
