Turmeric Wrapped Grilled Fish Platter: An Experience in Culinary Mindfulness

Mindful eating is all about savoring each bite as an expression of love for food. While the saying "we are what we eat" holds true, it doesn't mean settling for bland meals. Indulge in delightful, mind-loving, and delicious food with just a touch of mindful thinking. Crafting wonderful meals becomes part of your mindful eating journey.

Consider this Malaysian platter: 

A modest portion of steamed basmati rice 

Grilled aubergine mixed with raw shallots, chillies, and lime juice

Turmeric-wrapped fish marinated with fresh turmeric juice, a dash of salt, a hint of chili powder for a spicy kick

Our local Malaysian herb, Ulam Raja, also known as King Salad. 


If you wish to watch the video on preparing the Turmeric-Wrapped Grilled Fish, it's attached below. 


For non-fish enthusiasts, feel free to substitute with chicken, and vegetarians can choose their preferred alternative. If you're from other parts of the world, swap King Salad with any raw salad of your choice.

Turmeric, known worldwide for its numerous benefits, has become a superfood trend (Turmeric Blak Cumin Rice). While it's featured in various products, a word of caution: overdosing can have health implications. Therefore, it's a mindful reminder that everything is in moderation.

As the founder of Nava's Zen, I take pride in our mindful living (Herbs Rice) which includes sustainable development gardening. Around 50% of our food comes from our urban organic gardening concept (Sustainable Living).
