Baked Ocean Perch Recipe Recipe

Baked Ocean Perch Recipe

06.01.12 by Jackie

Here's the fish dish I made in parallel to the mock fish I made for my vegetarian husband last Tuesday. I baked Pacific Ocean perch using a very simple recipe. I flavored the fish with red Thai chiles, onions and Thai basil.

I served the fish on a bed of Chinese pea shoots and kept the meal fairly healthy. Enjoy!

Mock Fish Recipe: Pan Fried Seaweed Tofu Recipe

Cá chiên chay (vegetarian fried fish in Vietnamese) is my attempt to eat approximately the same dish as my vegetarian husband, Lulu. It doesn't bother him so much, but it makes me a little sad that even when we share a meal, we're not actually eating the same thing. I cooked fish for myself today, and I whipped up a mock fish equivalent dish using tofu skin, crumbled tofu and seaweed to go alongside it. The result was surprisingly delicious. Lulu enjoyed his vegetarian meal and I enjoyed my fish as well.

I paired the "fish" with jasmine rice and canh mồng tơi (broth with leafy greens). The meal remained healthy yet very tasty.

Three Bean Salad Recipe Recipe

Three Bean Salad Recipe

05.29.12 by Jackie

This salad recipe doesn't call for any vinegar or lemon juice in the dressing. The natural acidity of the nectarines is all you'll need. As an added bonus, the nectarines lend an added freshness to the dish. Three beans are used in the salad: black eyed peas, kidney beans and black beans. Crumbled feta cheese, jicama, Romaine lettuce, baby spinach leaves and a few other ingredients complete the dish.

The salad is not only tasty but filling, due to the starchy nature of the legumes. Especially with vegetarians in my house, I find that a bean salad is a simple, nutritious and tasty option for lunch when I just don't feel like cooking.

Pommes Anglaise: Pesto Potato Salad Recipe Recipe

Pommes à l'Anglaise is just a fancy name for boiled potatoes. Once the potatoes were cooked, I coated them in pistachio radish pesto (I still had more radish greens in our garden) and softened the spicy flavor of the greens with yogurt.

The preparation is super easy, and this dish will go fast!

Avocado Tomato Salad (Light Salad Recipe) Recipe

This salad is made with avocado, mâche, walnuts, deep-fried tofu, juicy tomatoes and hearts of palm. The dressing is very minimal; a drizzle of white balsamic vinegar, avocado oil and salt and pepper completes the salad.

What better way is there to start a meal than with a healthy and tasty salad?
