Poisson Braise

Foreign Flair:
Zereoué’s cuisine comprises unique dishes like attiéké, a cassava root from the Ivory Coast (shown). “It’s a lot like couscous and great with fish,” he says.

Embrace Change:
Former teammates on the Steelers, Raiders, and Patriots benefited from his culinary skills. “Once I got to the pros, I started cooking for [them],” he says. “Healthy eating is a way of life for me—we are what we at.”

Keep It Spicy:
All-purpose fish seasoning is essential for this dish, says Zereoué. You can find it in most Asian or gourmet markets or make your own. “Just mix garlic, cilantro, basil, thyme, paprika, salt, and pepper,” he says.

Serves: 2

3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 lemon, halved

of the olive oil, all of the garlic, juice from
half of the lemon, a pinch of salt, a pinch

5) Cook for 4 minutes and fl ip to cook the
