Even though I like to bake and I’m pretty good at it I’ve never really been much of a cook. I don’t think its that I CAN’T do it, I’ve just never really had a desire to do it. But knowing that I need to make some healthy changes to my diet I also know that I need to cook at home more. Well dang.
When I heard about Sizzlefish I was quite excited. Individual portions of fish delivered right to your door?! Sounds great huh? Shipments arrive in a cooler with dry ice, so its still nice and solid when it gets to you. My package included so many options – catfish, rainbow trout, coho salmon, atlantic salmon, altantic cod, haddock, and sable fish. It even came with two cedar planks for grilling. The biggest problem I faced was what to do with all this fish.
I immediately went to Pinterest in search of recipe ideas. Sizzlefish even has a few Pinterest boards of their own full of recipes. I pinned away and was all ready to go, but then time got away from me. Fast forward to last week when I finally decided I need to get cooking (ha ha) with this fish. I went through my recipes and tried to find one that I had all the ingredients for. I decided to try out Fabulessly Frugal’s Honey Lime Tilapia recipe. I used Atltantic cod instead of Tilapia and switched out the regular honey for key lime honey (I had that and no limes, so it worked out perfectly). The recipe was easy to follow and easy to cut down for my single serving of fish.
I served the fish with some polenta I got from Trader Joe’s and some steam-in-the-bag brussel sprouts. It was all really tasty! I made a bit of a mess of the kitchen trying to cook three things all at once, but it all came together and I didn’t even set anything on fire.
I can’t wait to try out more recipes with more types of fish. Who knows, maybe I will even become a good cook… or at least better at it 🙂
What is your favorite way to prepare fish at home? I’d love some suggestions!
