Recipes don’t get any easier than this one.  Make sure you purchase a really nice piece of fresh fish such as halibut with the skin on one side.  I used one large halibut fillet which was just over a pound.

Serves 2 to 3.

  • 2 TBS flour
  • 2 TBS Panko crumbs
  • Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 1 large Halibut Fillet (about 1.2 lbs) or 2 smaller thick fillets
  • 5 TBS olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 4 small garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 large scallions, chopped
  • 3 TBS fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 fresh lemon, sliced (optional)

Directions:

Make sure you have everything chopped and ready to add as we go along. This recipe moves along quickly.

Preheat the oven to 450 F.  Mix the salt and pepper with the panko and flour on a large flat plate. Dredge the fish – skin side down in the mixture and shake of any excess.

Heat an oven proof pan over high heat. When hot, add the oil, give it about 30 seconds and add your fish – skin side down. Cook for about 3 minutes – depending on thickness, until you believe the skin has become golden in color. 

Turn the fish over. Pour your wine in very carefully, it will smoke. Add the garlic, scallions, parsley and remove from heat, going directly into the oven.  Cook uncovered for a 5 minutes, until it flakes easily with a fork.  Serve with sliced lemons.

If you have a recipe that gets any easier than the above, I’d love to hear about it.

We are off to the sports store so Ted can use his gift certificate. He is just too excited!  I have a feeling we will be getting more weights for our gym. Now I’m excited!

Good night, all. 🙂

Yesterday Shane and I watched the Boilermaker runners pass at the MVCC – Sherman Drive mark, just under 2 miles into the 15 K race.  Some were already looking a bit “spent” and it wasn’t that hot.  But good for them…they were making every attempt at the run while I stood there watching. 

The temperature was good for the boilermaker, at about 70 F by the time the race started.  Ted was golfing so Shane and I were Teddy’s support team at this mile marker.  Unfortunately, we spotted him as he was almost past us, but we did get a good “GO TEDDY” in there and he waved.  Here are some recap photos from the wheelchair, to the elite runners, to the have a good time bunch…10,500+ finished the race.

The wheelchairs start the race at 7:45 am.

The support team at this end of Utica was in full steam. We clapped, we danced, we sang…we were running in spirit. 

Congratulations runners!

 

Bob’s Red Mill.

I just keep getting these wonderful packages from my favorite manufacturer of oatmeal and other great products.  Saturday, I recieved this fantastic package:

Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Vanilla Cake and GF Shortbread Cookie Mix

Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Vanilla Cake and GF Shortbread Cookie Mix

What’s the catch? Not a bad one that’s for sure. I have to bake some goodies using these mixes. 
Recipes enclosed with the mixes look great. Pineapple upside down cake, Boston Cream Pie…and more. I can’t wait. All Gluten FREE!
Now it’s Monday
Back to the routine. Today’s workout:
Chest and biceps.  15 reps. x 4 sets each. 4 sets of running the stairs.  That was fun. Everytime I ran up and down the stairs, Shane would come running downstairs. Then he’d go back up, only to come barreling down again when I ran the stairs.  Silly dog.  Aerobic warm up was 20 minutes running and then a 4 mile run with Shane, post workout.
