Possibly redfish, but no blue fish!
Here at Casa de Aggie, we have fish for dinner on Fridays during Lent. But fish every Friday can be boring. So, I have decided to make it into a gourmet holiday for the kids, making sure to serve different kinds, and involving them in the preparations. Eldest really likes to bake, and Son has gotten into sautéing. Little One is still in the “just eating it” stage. But I have hopes for her.
This evening’s offering will be salmon. Now, I prefer salmon raw, but I hear cooked it’s pretty good, too. I will make sautéed grape tomatoes with basil and mozzarella, steamed green beans, and homemade rolls. And if the kids were good today, I may be persuaded to make dessert. Perhaps a cherry pie to celebrate the beginning of Spring Break!
And the beginning of my descent into madness 😉

Salmon is the ONLY fish worth eating.
I’m a lousy cook, but a 4oz salmon fillet on the George Foreman for 4 minutes, with Hollandaise sauce and some rice and veggies is a quick and relatively healthy meal.
But it’s no steak.

Butter, lemon, thin onion slices, and sea salt and celery salt, wrap in aluminium foil, grill for about 20 minutes, until flaky, then eat.

“the beginning of my descent into madness” A new beginning? (sithy pun there) Don’t you mean my further descent into madness? 🙂

Can’t eat fish, and I’m on a low-carb diet, so that makes Fridays in Lent challenging.

I can’t imagine, Roamy. Tofu??

Deep-fried tofu FTW!

I’m not at all surprised.
Though I preferred “Green Eggs and Porn.

Aggie has now made me hungry 🙂 but my housemate is actually going to cook tonight. She’s been off all week for Spring break but some how I still wound up cooking.

We use salmon as our most common fish but orange roughy and tilapia are good too.
If you like shrimp- you can do an easy coconut shrimp in the oven (no frying).
Now I’m hungry!

I’m blessed to live on the Gulf Coast…all kinds of fresh seafood. Makes Fridays in Lent quite easier.
