BBQ Haddock with Cherries  (reducing inflammation)

BBQ Haddock + Cherries to Reduce Inflammation

If you’ve ever found yourself so stiff and sore from workouts that you begin to lack the motivation to do another without popping some pills, than I have great news for you! Time to start cherry pick’n, or eat’n really. That’s right, research has shown that tart cherry juice can reduce the inflammation in lab rat’s blood vessels by up to 50%! In humans it has been shown to help athletes improve their performance by reducing muscle damage to recover faster from tough workouts, and reduce their use of anti-inflammatory pain meds. NSAIDS have been linked to serious side effects, cherries have not.

* Why Cherries?

Cherries are rich sources of flavonoids, specifically anthocyanidins.

Long word, but basically these flavonoids are what give cherries their deep red-blue color. In general the darker the cherry, wether sweet or sour the better it is for you because it has a higher concentration of flavonoids! Here is the cool part, anthocyanidins block inflammation and inhibit pain enzymes in the same way that aspirin and other NSAIDS do.


This week, as cherry season comes to a close and we transition into fall, we have a delightful cherry recipe paired with our tender, flaky haddock. Haddock is amazing for you because of all the omega-3 it contains which, BONUS, also has been found to reduce inflammation and improve joint health! So go make this powerful fish recipe to fuel you for life, after all, it’s just a bowl of cherries 


BBQ Haddock with Cherries:


  • 2 Haddock fillets
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce (maple or honey)
  • Black Pepper
  • Cherry juice (just a few tbsp)
  • 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup chopped dark cherries.

  • Preparation Instructions:

    1. First, mix together 2 tbsp cherry juice with your BBQ sauce. Add in a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Then Marinate you fillets in the BBQ for about 20 minutes.
    2. Once marinated, grill or bake at 400F for 10 minutes. The last 2 minutes of your grill, add in your chopped cherries so they are slightly cooked.
    3. Serve on top a salad with green tomato and feta (optional).

    Serves 2.
