When I go by the meat section, I’m grabbing the usual ground beef and boneless, skinless chicken breasts…occasionally steak, pot roast, or corned beef.
But tonight in a rush to beat my husband home and get dinner on the table I thought about a little white flaky friend…fish!
A couple days ago, a dear pal of mine was mentioning how much she and her family enjoy fish and how quick and easy it is to fix.
I’ve never been one to cook a whole lot with it. Not because I don’t like it….I’ll eat fish at restaurants. But truth be told…I’m kind of intimidated when it comes to preparing any sort of seafood or freshwater creature!
But my friend insisted a little salt…pepper…and splash of lemon was all it took. So that’s what I did.
I cranked the oven up to 425 and in less than fifteen minutes, I had some tasty, flaky fish. (Tilapia, if you were wondering.)
Ha! Not bad.
(Don’t mind the super healthy mac n’ cheese…ahem.)
And the verdict…
Husband? Two thumbs up!
And well Layla…
She needed a little convincing…
But in my house, we call that…
P.S. Hope you’ll join me later this week for Frugal Fahsionista Friday! =)
