A Gourmet Fish Topping

Standard

Fish is one of the most nutritious meals you can give your body. However, sometimes with fish we can get a little bored because we tend to repeat recipes that we know. We do this because fish can be one of those intimidating dishes to make. Don’t worry though; we have you covered with this great fish “marinade” which is really more of a topping. I prefer it on salmon but it goes great with most fish.

INGREDIENTS

1 clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard (Plaeo Leaps has a great recipe to make your own, take a look here)
1 tomato
2 basil leaves

*note: this is good for roughly two small fillets, you may need to double or triple this recipe depending upon how much you’re cooking.

RECIPE

In a small bowl mash together garlic and salt. You may need to use a spoon to grind the two together, you will end up with a mash consistency mixture.
Add mustard to mixture, combine thoroughly and place aside.
Wash and slice tomato, you’ll want the tomato to be thin, no more than 1/8” thick.
Wash and slice basil into strips.
Taking fillets, spread mustard mixture over top evenly.
Place tomato slices on top of fish, covering whole fillet. The tomato layer should only be one slice thick (do not place tomato slices on top of each other as this will cause fish to cook unevenly).
Cook or grill fish until fillet is cook through. (Temperature and length will depend on your fish and cooking method, because you are layering the mustard mixture and tomatoes on top of the fillet it may take a few extra minutes to cook all the way through).
Place fresh basil on top of fillets and cook two additional minutes.
Remove and serve.

This is one of the best ways to prepare fish for individuals who are not big fish eaters. It cuts down drastically on the “fishiness” of fish. For those of you who like fish, you’re in for a great treat.

Enjoy!

Pesto Simmered Portobellos and Tomatoes

Standard

This recipe is a simple yet delicious side dish. For those of you that have completed the Paleo Cleanse, you’ll also notice that it is similar to our Grilled Portobello Pesto dish. While I often serve this as a side dish it’s also a great option if you don’t feel like meat or have to serve someone who does not eat meat.

INGREDIENTS

Salt (optional)
1 cup of basil leaves
1 clove of garlic
1/8 cup pine nuts
1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons olive oil
2 Portobello mushrooms
2 tomatoes

RECIPE

In a food processor place salt, basil, garlic & pine nuts.
Process mixture while streaming in 1/3 cup of olive oil.
Clean gills out of Portobello mushrooms, wash and slice mushrooms into strips.
Wash and cut tomatoes into slices.
In a frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat.
Place mushrooms and tomatoes in frying pan and cook, flipping occasionally.
After 5 minutes add pesto mixture to mushrooms and tomatoes.
Continue to cook for about 5 more minutes or until mushrooms and tomatoes have reached your desired tenderness.
Remove from heat and serve.

This recipe is simple to make but it tastes gourmet. As a fun side note, you can make extra of the pesto and store if for other recipes that you’re planning to make in the coming week.

Enjoy!
