Cincinnati has been getting a ton of great new restaurants. However, there are still a few oldies that are my favorite. One is Bouquet located in the Mainstrasse Village of Covington, Kentucky. We live 20 minutes from the state line and Covington is one of those great old towns in Kentucky that has a ton of history, beautiful architecture and a view of the Ohio River and Downtown Cincinnati. Bouquet offers a great selection of unique recipes using local produce and livestock, following the farm to table philosophy. One dish that I love is their Sea Bass with Basil Cream Sauce. Chef Stephen Williams shared his recipe and I couldn’t wait to try it at home. Just as delicious as it was in the restaurant.
Eating sea bass helps reduce risks of cardiovascular disorders. Thanks to the abundant quantity of omega 3 essential fatty acids, the fish improves the function of the heart, arteries and veins, and other parts that make up the cardiovascular system of the body. These essential fatty acids help in lowering the ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol, and increasing the ‘good’ HDL cholesterol levels in the body. It is amazing to know that including merely two servings of fish in the diet per week, can reduce instances of death from heart diseases, by 1/3.
Sea bass also helps lowering blood pressure. People with regular intake of sea bass fish in their diet, show significant reduction in blood pressure levels.
