Everyone Else Is Doing It

Last night we had seared tuna steaks and sautéed spinach for dinner, which was tasty and healthy. This time of year aren't we all trying to eat better, healthier?

I’m thinking we should eat tuna once a week.

I’m also thinking I’d get really tired of having tuna once a week.

Fish lovers, please send recipes, for tuna and other healthy fish, except salmon. I don’t like salmon. I wish I did.

Dang you and your "I don't like salmon." But I understand. I don't like tuna. I don't have the original source of this recipe but we use it a lot, esp. in summer. I think its NYT and Mark Bittman. Super easy. Yummy and healthy. I have a garlic Halibut recipe somewhere but not finding it right now. I'll look in a couple of other places and if I find, comment later.

Also I encourage you to look for some fish soup recipes. I don't have a recipe, I just wing it. If I find something useful I will come back and comment.

This gives me an idea of doing a "how I organize my recipes" post.

Steamed Fish with Mesclun And Sweet Soy Dressing

2 T peanut or olive oil
2 fillets (about3/4 lb. each) cod, halibut try others
3 T soy sauce
3 T mirin
2 T vinegar
2 T sesame oil
Black pepper
6 cups mesclun, washed and dried

Put a nonstick skillet that can be covered over high heat and add the oil; a minute later, add the fish and cover the pan. Cook for about three minutes and in a separate bowl, combine the soy sauce, mirin, vinegar, sesame oil, about 1/4 t. black pepper and 1/4 cup water.

Carefully remove the cover and add liquid mixture. Cover again and turn the heat to medium. Cook until fish is done, about three more minutes. Turn off heat and let sit for a moment.

Divide mesclun among 4 plates and top each portion with some fish and dressing. Grind black pepper topping and serve.

4 servings. (Easy to adapt for 2).
