I’m back I’m back I’m back!! This past month has been so fully devoted to my trip “home” to visit my family in Washington! It. Was. Beautiful. I got to meet my new nephew, Ellis London. I got to build Legos with my oldest Nephew, Noah Jesse. And I got to play in an Anna and Elsa tent with my one and only niece, Olive Selah Grace. I got my toes done and shopped at Ross with the girls (one doesn’t realize how they love Ross until they move away from it!), to go on a romantic date with my husband at a spot on the beach we went to when just dating…and I got to be close to my three brothers, my best friends of all time. My heart is happy as I resume my food posting!! So please forgive me for my absence! But when one has not seen so many of the most important people in their life for a year and 3 months….one cuts out everything else in life to just BE with them!! I sincerely hope you all had a chance these past months to just BE with the ones that are important to you!
However, as glorious as it was, I am ready for a few things to resume. First and foremost, health! In every aspect of the word! Physical, mental, spiritual!! And along with that, the resuming of sharingy journey with you wonderful people!!
So, assuming you are all still feeling like fat cows just like me, let’s start off with something super light but still so yummy yummy yummy!!
Cod with Pesto! So incredibly easy and tasty!
So, here’s what you need:
16 oz Cod Fillets
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1 sm bunch parsley
2 Tbsp cilantro paste or fresh (optional)
1 tsp minced garlic
Juice of a lemon
2+ tsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp minced favorite nut (I used walnut)
And here’s how you do it!
- Preheat the oven to 400*
- Start your pesto. Trim the stems off the parsley and place in a good proccessor. Pulse a few times until broken down some.
- Add all the other ingredients except the fish and blend. Add more olive oil until it becomes a thick sauce, or whatever consistency you prefer.
- In a cast iron skillet, melt coconut oil over medium high heat. Add fish and sear for about 3 minutes per side.
- Too each fillet with even portions of pesto then slide into the oven for 5 minutes to heat everything through. Serve hot and feel good about your choices!! Go you!! Happy New Year!!
Blend everything together to make your pestoooooo!
Sear your fish on each side for about 3 minutes.
Top with pesto and slide into 400* oven for about 5 minutes, until everything is warmed through.
Now serve with some nice hearty veggies!! (I always serve fish with a sturdier veggie like broccoli or asparagus since fish is so light…it makes me feel full and satisfied!)
And enjoy! Yummy yum yums! Thanks for reading guys, I truly appreciate you all!
