Crawfish tails with kale and brown rice
Dinner is brown rice with peeled crawfish tails and kale. I put everything in the Ninja Foodi and added 2 cups of low sodium organic vegetable broth, Mrs Dash garlic and herbs, turmeric, paprika and red pepper flakes, pressure cooked for 25 minutes, added shredded Parmesan cheese on top and that’s it!
Tonight we had grouper for dinner, seasoned with turmeric, paprika powder and Mrs Dash garlic and herbs and a quinoa spinach blend on the side with half a bag of cauliflower. Squeezed out lemon juice over the grouper after it was plated.
4 oz salmon
1 tbsp avocado oil or olive oil would also work
mixed baby potatoes (I prefer the baby purple potatoes but they were out)
4 cloves garlic,
a tbsp of basil pesto
spinach (about 2 cups)
pinch of thyme
herbs de Provence
Mrs Dash garlic and herbs
This was all cooked in my electric skillet. First I started the potatoes because they take longest to get done, fried them up in a tbsp of avocado oil, garlic and onion. Then added the salmon about 15 minutes before the potatoes were done. Brown on both sides quickly, then add half a cup of water and put the lid on it. Last 5 minutes added spinach and pesto to potatoes. Enjoy!
Salmon With Spinach and Rice
For easier meal prep this week I first cooked a large batch of brown rice in my electric skillet adding red pepper flakes and Mrs Dash garlic and herbs to it. Once done I cleaned the skillet and fried up two 4 oz pieces of salmon in it along with half an onion sliced up and again Mrs Dash seasoning. At the last minute I added the spinach, a cup of the brown rice I cooked and covered it with the lid until the spinach welted which is about a minute. Stir and serve! I sprinkled a little bit of freshly grated Parmesan cheese over it.
No salt added!
8 oz salmon
half an onion
cup of cooked brown rice (I cooked it myself rather than ready made rice as they’re too high in sodium content)
8 oz baby spinach
Mrs Dash garlic and herbs
red pepper flakes
1 tbsp avocado oil to fry the fish in.
Fry up the salmon fillets in an electric skillet, season the salmon with a little sea salt and Mrs Dash garlic and herbs seasoning. I then added minced garlic, 3 cloves, and a diced red onion. When the salmon is done, squirt lemon juice over it and transfer to plates.
I then put a container of spinach and arugula into the skillet with the onion and garlic and quickly stir fry it for a minute and it's done! Quick, healthy and easy.

The tilapia and salmon were frozen so take a little longer to cook than if it were fresh so adjust your cooking time if you have fresh fish!
Spray non-stick foil in non stick spray and sprinkle some Mrs Dash and Old Bay seasoning on the fish. Add the veggies and cook on oven setting at 425F for 45-60 minutes.

Did up some Jamaican Escovitch Fish for hubby tonight. Traditionally done with either red snapper fish or sliced kingfish (must be a meaty fish :)).
Wash fish with lime juice and rinse with water. Pat dry. ..very dry. Season with salt and pepper. Let marinate for at least an hour,preferably. Cut up (julienne)some carrots, bell peppers, an onion and scotch bonnet peppers (not shown in my pic).Any other pepper can be used.
Heat oil and pan fry fish until crispy.
When fried, put fish aside. Pour out oil but save for later use.
Add about 1/2-3/4 cup vinegar and 2tbsp of the oil that cooked the fish to pot and bring to a gentle boil. Add cut veggies along with fresh thyme, a few pimento seeds. Lower heat to a simmer and cook for another 3-5 mins or until onions get translucent. Let cool for a few minutes.
Place fish in a dish and spoon veggies over fish with some of the sauce. Let sit for about an hour preferably. Can be eaten hot or cold. The older the better...allowing more time for the sauce to soak in.
