I went through a phase when I was so sick of fish in high school. Of course I made what my mom prepared, but I would cringe when I found out fish was on the dinner menu.
Fast forward to college and when I would come home to visit, all I wanted was a homecooked meal that included fish.
Maybe my craving stremmed from the fact that I didn’t eat fish away from home since I had a meal plan in college and didn’t really trust the fish prepared on campus. Or maybe I now wanted fish because we moved to Florida and the fish we ate was super fresh and often caught earlier that day during one of my dad’s spearfishing trips. Either way, my love for fish retured in full-force.
These days I don’t make fish all that often because it can be pricey, but when I saw beautiful filets of trout on sale at the grocery store yesterday, I had to pick some up.
Fish is not only delicious and nutritious, but it’s also easy to prepare, which may be what I like most about it!
I prepped the trout by sprinkling a seasoning of Nature’s Place lemon, basil and thyme that Ryan’s mom gave to me after I complimented a dish she made that used the yummy spices.
This flavor combo is perfect for poultry, red meat or fish. Gotta love the versitility!
To cook the fish, I placed it on a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray and broiled it for approximately 10 minutes, until it flaked with a fork.
Along with the fish, I enjoyed a mixture of lentils with sauted onions and carrots.
I went back for another small piece of fish because it was so delicious!
I really need to start integrating fish into my diet more regularly. It’s too good to continue to ignore.
