Lemon Garlic Baked Fish Fillets

Everyone seems to be getting sick right now!  In fact, it is very common to get sick during this warm and humid period.  Outside temperature is as high as 34-35°C, while the air-conditioned room is at 23-25°C.  Really have to take extra precautions when walking in and out the air-conditioned rooms as sudden changes in temperature affect the respiratory system.

Other than regular exercise to keep our immune system up and running,  we need to watch out our intake to have balanced and healthy meal.  You probably know that lemon is high in Vitamin C, which helps to boost the immune system. Do you know that garlic is powerful against infectious diseases like cold and flu? It all thanks to its antioxidant , antiviral and antibiotic properties. 

That's one of the reason I decided to cook fish fillets with lemon and garlic today. Both lemon and garlic are powerful immune boosters. They are the best cold remedy at home.  I love this recipe also because it is quick and easy. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare and if you serve with pre-prepared brown rice, you can have a super healthy meal done in just about half an hour.
