I've noticed a spike in my traffic when I list recipes and post pictures of food, so I thought I'd just keep everyone up to date on what we had for dinner.
I found some Swai at Wal-Mart the other day (a white fish). I've never heard of it before but it was reasonably priced so I thought we'd give it a shot. I'm proud to say that it turned out pretty good.
I don't cook fish very often and because of that I really have no idea how to do it or what to serve with it. I think I figured it out, though. I'm sure this is someone's recipe but I didn't look anything up and just whipped this together.
White fish filets (I used the Swai but cod or walleye would be great for this, too)
All I did was thaw the fish and put it on tin foil on a cookie sheet. Then I spread minced garlic over the top and sprinkled cut, fresh dill over that. Then I put about three or four Tablespoons of butter on top of that.
I covered it with another piece of tin foil and put it into the oven on 350 degrees for fifteen minutes. After the fifteen minutes was up I pulled the top layer of tin foil off, turned the oven up to 450 degrees and cooked it for another seven or eight minutes.
I served brussel sprouts with it and that was a perfect pairing. I swear these brussel sprouts were the best I've ever made. I boiled them as the package says and squeezed half a lemon into a bowl (probably a Tablespoon of juice) and added butter. Then I drained the sprouts and added them to the butter/lemon mixture. They were so good.
But, I have to say, the best part of the meal was...
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie!
I cheated and bought Pilsbury already made pie crust and just added frozen strawberries, frozen rhubarb, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 2 Tablespoons of flour and 3 Tablespoons of butter. I baked it on 425 for fifteen minutes and then turned the oven down to 350 and baked it for fifty (50) minutes. I probably should have cooked it for 60 minutes, but it was still good. Oh - I almost forgot. I rubbed a little milk on the top crust and sprinkled it with sugar. Large granules would have been prettier, but I don't have any.
