Default Baked Crappie/Bass

  • 8 fish fillets
  • Extra Virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Paprika
  • 8 lemon wedges
Place fillets on several layers of paper towels, cover with additional layers. Press firmly to remove excess water from fillets. Place fillets on a non-stick baking sheet. Drizzle your favorite olive oil over the fillets. Using your hands, rub the fillets in oil, turning at least once to ensure total coverage. Wipe up excess oil with a paper towel. (Now, go wash those fishy hands!) Season fish with the next 4 ingredients to taste. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes, or until fish has turned white and flakes easily with a fork. Remove and plate with lemon wedges and homemade tartar sauce.

- salt
- pepper

Tip: Use sorrel or watercress instead of spinach.

3. Drain in a sieve. When cool, press spinach to remove excess water (or, better yet, drain overnight on paper towel).
4. Beat the eggs and add the spinach.
5. Season to taste.
6. Pour mixture into the baking dish.
7. Bake for 20 minutes and let cool.
8. Place a piece of parchment paper on a clean work surface and unmold the omelet.

For a more substantial meal, carefully top with overlapping ham slices.
11. Roll tightly starting at the short end. Wrap in plastic wrap.
12. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before slicing.

Presentation:

Serve spinach roll-ups with turkey or white fish or as a main dish (with ham).

Default Greek Shrimp Scampi (SUPER YUMMY)

This recipe isn't compliant with phase 1 but it is SO DELICIOUS!!! I made it as called but not with the linguini. Just the shrimp and everything else. YUMMY!!

Ingredients
  • 1 pound linguini
  • Salt
  • 1 pound medium to large shrimp deveined and peeled, tails removed
  • Pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • Couple pinches red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 sprigs oregano, finely chopped
  • Handful pitted kalamata olives, chopped
  • 1/2 cup white wine, eyeball it
  • 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 cup feta cheese crumbles
Directions
Place a large pot of water on the stove to boil. Salt water and cook pasta to al dente.

Season the shrimp with salt and pepper.

While the pasta water comes to a boil, heat extra-virgin olive oil in a deep skillet with garlic. When garlic is brown, remove and reserve. Add shrimp and cook 3 to 4 minutes. Add red pepper flakes, lemon zest, oregano, olives, and wine and cook together a couple of minutes more. Remove from heat. Add a ladle of starchy pasta cooking water to sauce and some lemon juice. Remove the sauce from the heat. Drain pasta and add to the skillet. Let pasta soak in juices for a minute then toss with parsley and feta. Use tongs to pull pasta from skillet, giving it a turn to twist in as many ingredients as possible. Then, use the tongs to remove and arrange the shrimp and ingredients that may remain in the pan, distributing them evenly among the portions.

BRUSHED EGGPLANT
Active time: 10 minutes
Time to table: 50 minutes
Serves 4

DRESSING
1 tablespoon good vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon or Spicy Brown mustard
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon good olive oil

1 pounds eggplant, stem removed, cut in 3/4 inch slices
Salt & pepper (you can add any additional)

Preheat oven to 375F. Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Arrange eggplant on a baking sheet cut-side up (you might cover with foil unless it's non-stick). Brush the up-facing side of each slice, turn those with two cut sides upside down and brush the cut sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, turn slices over and bake another 20 - 25 minutes or until golden and soft.

I will be doing these in circular slices.
