Baked Walleye (fish)

June 16, 2012


Locally where I am (off Lake Erie) Walleye is a big deal because it is found in abundance in the Lake, right down the road, I can literally walk down there and catch some, with my bare hands. Of course I went down to the market and bought some, from Canada. Males sense right? Anyway… Put some foil in a baking pan and lightly coat with butter substitute (olivio) and place walleye fillets skin side down in ban. Pour some lemon juice and olive oil over fish. Sprinkle some garlic, basil and onion salt over fish. Cover with foil. Bake on 350 for about 20 minutes, uncover and bake about five more minutes. Despite its popularity around me I had never had walleye before so this was my first time. I wasn’t crazy about it. Wasn’t bad but wouldn’t be my first choice.


Salmon and Peppy Shrimp

June 6, 2012


Lemon juice, horseradish sauce, fresh thyme, fresh basil, put them over the fish, wrap in foil and bake for about 25 minutes


Peppy Shrimp

Tomato Sauce (homemade or Amy’s Organic), add prepared horseradish, cayenne pepper and ground black pepper (to taste) plus lemon juice. Cook until properly warm and stir very occasionally. In a separate pan, spray some butter substitute (Olivio FTW here) and sauté the shrimp until pink/done.

Once both pans are done combine the two into one (place shrimp into tomato sauce mixture) and let simmer for about 10 minutes.

I usually serve this over greens but not in this picture for some reason….

Fish is Good Food

June 4, 2012

One of my favorite foods has always been pretty much any kind of fish. Since beginning my journey I’ve been experimenting with a few different methods of preparing it. Top of my list is salmon (responsible fishing is important so pay attention to labels and countries of origins!). If you take some lemon juice, horseradish sauce, fresh thyme, fresh basil and sliced tomatoes, put them over the fish, wrap in foil and bake for about 25 minutes it is delicious and tender! Tomorrow I’m going to be making some local Lake Erie favorite Walleye. It will be my first time making it (I know right?) I’ll let everyone know how it turns out.
