Dr. Tim Says....

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.I had a question not too long ago about why we don't have information about the DASH Diet on the Dr. Gourmet Web site. It's a fair question and the answer is pretty simple.

For the most part, the DASH Diet is the practical application of the Mediterranean diet. The research in the 1970s and 1980s about Mediterranean diet laid the foundation for great quality nutrition research in the 1990s. The result was a large scale, multi-center trial of 459 adults age 22 years or older.

The goal of the research was to look at how diet might influence blood pressure. What is the DASH Diet?

Fish Sandwiches with Sun Dried Tomato Tartar Sauce

 Tartar Sauce is, of course, the standard with your fish, but that doesn't mean that you can't change it up every now and then. This sauce works great on fish sandwiches, as well as with Oven Fried Fish and Mustard Cornmeal Crusted Fish.

 Q: What's the best way to store fish?

A: This question didn't come via but it was asked recently during a conversation that I was having with someone testing The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan. She was asking about the number of seafood meals. She wasn't concerned about eating so much fish and those of you who often read these columns know that eating seafood is really good for you. She wanted to know about storing fish and shellfish telling me that she couldn't get to the fish store because she works until after it closes at 6:30.

Storing fish is something that I know a lot about because when I first moved to Virginia in 1994 I lived far enough outside of Washington D.C. that good quality fish wasn't available in my small town. This isn't as much of an issue as it used to be, but at the time I would drive an hour each way twice a week to shop for quality meats and fish. Storing Fish
