Doctor Oz brought Cat Cora on his show to teach us about a secret ingredient to blast belly fat… and who else better to reveal a secret ingredient than Iron Chef Cat Cora from the Food Network! Cat Cora is also the author of a cookbook called Cat Cora’s Classics, which she gave all of her helpers a copy of – nice! So the secret belly fat buster ingredient was Pumpkin Seeds or Pepitas.
Pumpkin seeds are rich in magnesium, iron and healthy fats called monounsaturated fats. In addition, pumpkin seeds add a great texture to red snapper and softer foods. One great tip that Cat Cora gave for cooking red snapper is that you should first score the skin with a knife, making a little slit in the skin. This helps the red snapper to stay nice and flat in the pan, because otherwise the red snapper skin can curl up (which has totally happened to me before with a variety of different types of fish!). Here is the complete recipe for Dr Oz & Cat Cora’s Red Snapper Recipe.
