Alaskan Pollack --haven't decided how to make it yet so any ideas are welcome--otherwise I will probably just bake with some lemon pepper seasoning.

Rice with craisins and rosemary

Steamed broccoli

Do you do your fish en papillote (in parchment paper)? It steams and the texture becomes so lovely and flaky. Fresh citrus, herbs such as lemon verbena, rosemary and/or thyme, a touch of white wine, garlic and a few halved shallots are all you need for great flavour. Or perhaps steamed and served with an interesting pesto such as mint and pistachio or sundried tomato? If you have a spice grinder you could whiz up some dried mushrooms (i.e. porcini) and sprinkle on top. Speaking of mushrooms - how about a nice duxelles? It would be great with pollack.

I will definately do it in parchement paper and I was thinking of doing something with citrus. Mushrooms are out because I'm allergic. I like the idea of a pesto-- I had not thought of doing pesto on fish. I make one with spinach and almonds that is great on chicken. I will probably decide at the last minute. Thanks for the ideas! :)

Oh, that's right. I had forgotten about the mushrooms.

It is so much fun experimenting with recipes/ingredients! Have fun... :)

i'm liking that idea for the rice! I have dried cranberries, rosemary, and rice bubbling away in the rice cooker now and just ate a few lactofermented pickles (persian cukes + carrot sticks) to hold off the hunger until food is actually prepared.

i'm having rice, broccoli (cooked) and some form of protein. Was gotten by eating out last weekend and have been on the applesauce-rice noodles-cooked carrots-tiny bits of chicken diet for the last few days and am finally feeling up to more food. So excited to have something else!

I wish I could take credit for the rice idea. I ate it in a restaurant once (can't remmember where now) and I've been hooked on it ever since. Glad to be of some help though!

Although this recipe specifies halibut you can easily substitute pollack. Delicious! It is called Halibut with Nut Crust and Apple Vinaigrette (sorry - I cannot recall whether you can have nuts!).

Thankfully I CAN have nuts, all kinds. :D

I will have to keep that one in mind for next time. I already made my fish. I ended up squeezing an orange over them, splashing some white white on, spraying with olive oil, topping with minced garlic and ginger, fresh ground pepper and kosher salt, then baking in parchement. Turned out pretty good for not following a recipe. Next time I think will add a little coconut aminos (which is my soy-sauce replacement since I can't have soy).

Sounds great! Citrus seems to be made for fish (and a billion other things but still!).

Cajun roasted chicken tenders and risotto...strange combo, but the only way my 20 month old will eat any type of white rice.

Your 20-month old has a discerning palate! :D What type of risotto are you making? I'm making mine with fresh herbs from the garden, white wine and citrus. Either that or Milanese with saffron but I thik I'll stick to the fresh herbs. Man, I love risotto.

Yes she does, at least she is picky in a good way though:) We are using basil from our garden and I think I have some white wine in the cabinet, it will be simple though since my 5 year old wants to make it.

That's awesome. Many people assume that risotto is tricky to make but it is not! I love that there are hundreds of ways to do it. Very versatile, that little arborio rice!
