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!

Lemon & Dill Fish Marinade

Standard

As with most of my recipes I try to keep them simple. Between working full time and writing during my free time I keep myself pretty busy and I need fast, easy dishes. Fish is always an easy dish because you can marinade it during the day, throw it in the oven for a few minutes and it’s ready to go. This is a simple, fresh marinade that is perfect for the upcoming summer months.

INGREDIENTS

2 – 3 fillets of fish
2 lemons
1 – 2 stems of dill
1/2 tsp salt

RECIPE

Place fish in a container that has a lid.
Squeeze lemon over fish.
Pull dill leaves from stem and sprinkle over fish, discard stem.
Sprinkle salt over fish.
Cover and let marinade for 2 – 3 hours or all day.
Cook fish to specifications and enjoy.

This fish will leave you feeling fresh and rejuvenated!

Enjoy!

I’ve been in a fish kick lately so I have a ton of new recipes to share, this one bloomed from my excitement for my upcoming Caribbean vacation! The best part as usual is it’s really easy to make and will take you about 20 minutes to cook (this includes prep).

2-3 tilapia fillets
1 lime, cut into fourths for squeezing
1/8 cup cilantro, diced
3-4 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp salt

RECIPE

Pre-heat oven to 400 ºF.
Place tilapia fillets in a glass dish.
Cover fillets with lime juice(squeeze fresh from limes), cilantro, coconut oil and salt. It’ll look something like this.

Cook for roughly 15 minutes or until fillets are solid white and flake apart when cut with a fork.

This is a light and filling meal that you’re sure to enjoy. It also has the added benefit of making you feel like you’re on a mini-vacation.

Enjoy!
