I’m on a health kick, and I’m trying to change our eating habits with healthier options. We’ve always been a family that’s huge on eating vegetables, we usually have some with every meal. It’s just trying to get creative with different things that the kids will enjoy. I don’t mind eating the same thing a couple of days in a row, but I know the kids aren’t fond of it. We used to go to the M&M meat shop store every couple of days and buy their lemon pepper fish. Everyone loves it, and I still plan on buying it again in the future. It’s just really expensive, especially when a box is only enough for one meal when it’s all of us eating. I’ve been searching while on shopping trips for other things that I can buy. While shopping the other day I found a bag of fish at Superstore, Blue Cod fillets [boneless/skinless] 10$ for a 3 lb bag. I was probably more ecstatic than I should have been, but I figured out that a bag will last us roughly three meals not counting leftovers for lunch. Whenever I’m cooking fish, or even chicken I like to cook a couple of extra pieces that way we have leftovers for lunch. In the past I always cooked fish in the frying pan with flour, and LOTS of butter. That kind of defeats the purpose of it being healthy, I think anyways lol. So tonight I tried out cooking the fish in the oven wrapped in tinfoil. I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to dirty extra dishes, so I googled cooking fish. I came across so many different recipes, and videos a majority of them suggested the use of butter, salt and pepper and vegetables. That seemed like a solid idea, I could see what works and tweak the way I cook the fish in the future. I started by placing foil on the baking sheet, and adding the fish, butter, garlic plus, lemon juice and the frozen vegetable on top. After that I wrapped it all up and placed it on the baking sheet. I cooked it in the oven at 350* for 30 minutes than I checked it, it was ready. There’s no right or wrong way of cooking this, but I’m planning on trying to cut out the butter in the future. I thought that the garlic plus, lemon juice and vegetables gave the fish a bit more flavour. I’m excited to try it out without butter the next time I cook it, and the best part is the vegetables were cooked at the same as the fish without the extra dishes. What I enjoy about this is you can use the fish and your veggies straight out of the freezer, no need to defrost. Voila a quick easy hot supper ready to serve, without going out to a restaurant.
How do you cook your fish?
