Yum! Epicurious, a gourmet food website, served up a delicious fish dish prepared and dressed with Malaysian palm fruit oil, a healthy oil that won’t raise your cholesterol.
A Malaysian Red Palm Oil vinaigrette livened up the seared halibut over beet salad. The palm fruit oil was used to sauté, and was mixed with seasoned tomato juice to form the tasty sauce.
Using Malaysian palm fruit oil in many parts of your meal provides you with plenty of alpha tocotrienols, a form of Vitamin E that may help shield against brain damage when they are sufficiently present in your body.
This special recipe was for the site’s sustainable cooking trend. The entire dish used organic ingredients – including the Malaysian palm fruit oil – harvested in ways that are gentle on the environment.
