Sauteed Whiting with Parsley & Lemon

February 4, 2010

We got a great deal on whiting filets ($2/lb), and I was going to use a recipe I usually use for cod, but I decided to use some things we had around the kitchen instead. This was excellent; even my fish-hating older son loved it.

1 lb. whiting filets
1/4 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
pepper
1 Tbsp butter or ghee
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/8-1/4 cup olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced.

Mix together breadcrumbs, cheese, and freshly ground pepper. Dip both sides of fish in bread mixture. Heat butter in a skillet. Cook fish on both sides until slightly browned. Mix together lemon juice, parsley, garlic, and olive oil. Pour over fish and cook until fish is cooked though and lemon mixture has had time to soak into the fish a little (it should be almost cooked through if not already when you pour it over).

Menu Plan Monday – Week of 2/1/2010

February 1, 2010

Well, we got through January using mostly food that we already have, and still have some left (especially that turkey). I did a little stock-up shopping, but we still came in under our budgeted amount, so I have meals for the next two weeks, mostly. I may need to buy some more items for next week.

Monday – Icelandic meatballs & cabbage, Caesar salad

Tuesday – Lamb kofta, spinach, rice

Wednesday – Whiting, either cooked with walnuts and cilantro or Mexican style; have not decided

Thursday – Crockpot Chicken Makhani

Friday – Salmon

Saturday – Leftover Icelandic lamb soup from the freezer
