My husband got this brilliant idea to do a “Fish Week” where we eat fish every night for a week. I asked him today if there was a specific point behind it, to which he replied, “Not really. It’s just that we always say we’re going to eat fish and we never do.”
I also think it was an attempt to try some healthier dishes, because on top of eating fish we agreed that nothing would be breaded or fried. We both enjoying cooking and trying new recipes, so this should be fun.
I also thought it would be fun to share our fish-week adventure with you. So, I will take a picture of each meal we eat and share the recipes and the family’s opinion of the meal. The recipe name will be the link unless other directions follow.
Fish Week – Monday
Slow- Roasted Salmon
Family’s Opinion: It was a hit!! The kids loved the salmon and decided the asparagus wasn’t too bad either. Husband and I loved it all.
My plate (pictured) held 3 1/2 oz. of salmon, 1/2 c. yellow rice and 2 oz. asparagus for a total of approximately 250-275 calories.
Slow-Roasted Salmon – Taken from the Food Network Kitchens
Yellow Rice – Taken from McCormick Turmeric Spice Jar
Sauteed Asparagus – Done on my own as follows:
Heat skillet and spray with Olive Oil Pam Spray. Toss in rinsed asparagus. Sprinkle with kosher salt and ground pepper. Sautee a few minutes and then turn over. Asparagus done when tested with a fork and found to be crisp tender. I do this in small batches so that they are in a single layer cooking evenly in the skillet.
I’m excited to try our other new recipes. There will be mexican flavors, some grilling and a few other things.
How about you? Do you ever branch out and try new recipes? If so, what new things have you tried in the kitchen since you’ve been on your weight loss journey?
