  2. I never thought of putting coconut on fish. I have some Tilapia in the freezer I just might try this only with out the peppers. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This sounds good I’m about to start a Pescatarian diet. definitely going to try this! 🙂

  4. I always recenmomd I always recenmomd doing the best you can. Even acid rain or toxins in the air float onto the food I grow in my garden. I like to look at things as good, better, best. Its best to grow seaweed in a controlled enviorment (farming) and eat it. Of course for most people, in my opinion its far better to eat some seaweed to get some trace minerals than not. Im not saying eat them in MASS quantity but some here and there. Its best to grow your own food in TRACE MINERALS to get them. Was this answer helpful?
