Sorry for absolutely sucking and being MIA for the last week or so. Work was taking over my life. But, I am back! Woohoo! Super big thanks to Emily for picking up my slack, I owe ya big. Maybe I’ll attempt to make you some Paleo cupcakes this week. However, I’ve sort of banished myself from the kitchen after setting my oven on fire last week. So those cupcakes might have to wait.
Anyways, I must admit, I can’t take ownership for the recipe I am about to gush about. My dad stepped it up yesterday and made an amazing fish dinner. After the Paleo seminar a couple weeks back, my family and I have been trying to up our fish intake. I had a bad salmon experience last summer so it’s been sort of tough to get back in the saddle (is that even the right expression?). But, I’m off to a good start! Three successful fish recipes in a row! I would share the other two other recipes, but they are honestly very unexciting. So, I’ll work on a good one for you guys next week.
So, here it is! I didn’t include exact measurements since it really depends on the size of the fish and personal preference. Like garlic? Add a ton! Not a fan of olives? Don’t use them! The possibilities are endless!
- 1 lb. white fish (I think ours was haddock)
- EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
- 4 cloves of garlic (I LOVE garlic so we added a ton)
- Fresh basil
- Fresh parsley
- Tomatoes (I used cherry)
- Salt and Pepper
- Preheat your grill to medium-ish heat
- Separate and clean your fish
- Cover a cook sheet with tin foil and place fish on the sheet
- Drizzle EVOO over fish (personal preference here, don’t go too crazy though)
- Add salt and pepper to taste
- Peel and chop garlic. Sprinkle over fish
- Wash and cut 6-8 stems of your fresh basil and parsley. Sprinkle over fish
- Cut tomatoes, mushrooms and olives into chunks and sprinkle over fish
- Bring your fish outside (still on the pan) and place on the grill. Grill for 8-10 minutes while periodically checking on the fish.
This recipe made me want to have my own little herb garden like woah. Is it too late to start one? Maybe I’ll look into it this weekend. I mean it can’t be that hard. I also want chickens in my back yard. A lady from the gym got that idea in my head. How awesome would it be to have fresh eggs every morning?! My boss told me chickens are smelly, but whatever, they will be outside. I’m sure my neighbors will love it. Do any of you have an herb garden or own chickens? I need to know!
