Pretty colors, wonderful flavor and texture, AND nutrient-rich. This recipe also reduces the number of prepping bowls, pots and pans in preparing dinner, truly a one-dish meal. Well, I serve it with a salad so I guess it is a two dish meal. It can be a simple romaine and pea salad with CMF Basic Salad Dressing
Other salad options could be Spinach and Orange Salad with Black Olives
To jump start another meal, I’ll add another 1/2 lb of fish. The leftovers (fish, asparagus and potatoes) can be tossed into a green salad and/or quinoa. Or made into a wrap with a hummus/bean spread of mashed avocado.
- Pesto happens a lot in my kitchen pending what fresh herbs are growing: cilantro, arugula, mint, kale or a mix of herbs: parsley/basil/mint; cilantro/cilantro etc. I experiment with whatever I have on hand. It’s a great way to use up herbs that are at risk of going bad
- Instead of asparagus, use green beans or broccoli (cut broccoli into 1-inch segments)
- I’ve used a variety of potatoes: red-skinned, fingerling, Yukon, even sweet potatoes. I cut them into 2-inch chunks, leaving the skin on if they’re organic. If not organic, I peel the potatoes.
- Instead pesto on the fish, I thin the pesto with add 1 – 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon, or even water and mix into the vegetables. In that case, I brush the fish with olive oil and place lemon slices on it
