Anyway back to dinner. . . looking for a quick, easy and tasty recipe? Check this one out.
Super quick with frozen fish fillets (I used tilapia). Topped with a tasty sauce. (I found the sauce on Carrots’n’Cake.) Pair with steam in the bag veggies and potatoes –> dinner!
Here’s the sauce:
1 T Dijon mustard
2 T maple syrup
Juice of 1 lime
1 T olive oil
And the recipe:
Mix 1st four ingredients together to make the sauce. (*I added extra Dijon mustard and maple syrup to mine – prob about 1 T extra of each – taste it and add extra if you like too) Salt and pepper fish. Cook in large skillet with extra olive oil. Remove from pan and brush with sauce.
Scott says “Boiler Up!” Any Purdue fans out there?
This recipe grabbed my eye because of the maple syrup in it. My husband LOVES maple syrup so I figured it would be right up his alley. And it was. He really liked the sauce. Me.. . not so much. Thankfully, I had a backup!
And the veggies (steamed garlic cauliflower) and mashed potatoes made for a great dinner. The mashed potatoes were from the freezer: Steam n’ Mash from Ore-Ida and were new to me.
Now off to watch more Olympics! I wish there were more hours in the day for me to be able to watch all the coverage. .. So far I have really enjoyed watching Walsh Jennings and May-Treanor kick some booty in beach volleyball and Missy Franklin having so much fun swimming her heart out. What is your favorite so far???
