This recipe is delicious yet very easy to make. You will need either a blender or a coffee grinder. A food processor won’t work because the amounts are very small. If you don’t have almond flour available, you can grind some almonds. I served this dish with Brilliant Sauteed Broccoli and Cucumber and Celery Salad.

Because Mahi-Mahi has a moderate fat content and a firm flesh, it grills very well and the fatty avocado salsa is a perfect complement to it. This dish is simple yet very delicious. I served the fish on a bed of red cabbage, fennel and sesame seeds.

This soup is pure comfort: very nice in a winter day or if you think a cold is coming to get you. I added some peas and spinach for fiber and color. You can add any green vegetable. For the elimination diet, please skip the eggs.

If you are making white fish, follow the recipe below. If you are making salmon, as I am, skip the lemon and the garlic powder: salmon has a strong flavor and we don’t want to overpower the dish by mixing too many strong flavors. The crust was very crumbly and it was kind of falling apart and the taste of almonds was not so evident. I think the results of breading the fish with garbanzo flour like in the Garbanzo Flour Crusted Cod, Yucca Root Puree, Collard Greens recipe were much better. However, the taste of the almond crust is really delicious the next day…

I served it with garlic broccoli rabe (rapini) and some left over Hoppin’ John.

I won’t  detail the recipes here as I really didn’t measure anything when cooking today. But I will sure tell you briefly how I made each dish. Please send me a message if you’d like more details on how to cook these dishes. Note that these recipes are all ok for the elimination diet.

Garbanzo Flour Crusted Cod: Season fish with sea salt and pepper. Mix garbanzo flour with garlic and onion powder. Dredge the fish with the flour mixture. Sautee the fish with coconut oil for about 3 minutes each side.

Yucca Root Puree: cook yucca in water and sea salt until soft. Drain, save about 1 cup of cooking liquid. Cut in 1 inch pieces, return to pan. In low heat add ghee and some of the cooking liquid until it forms a lumpy puree. Add fresh chopped parsley.

Collard Greens: check recipe here.

I came across a beautiful wild sockeye salmon and I had to buy it. The fish was so beautiful that I think the only way to cook it in order to enhance its flavor is the tea-smoked process. Tea-smoking is delicious, super easy and fast: see the recipe here. I added fresh dill to the fish and to the pesto brown rice pasta that I served on the side.

I used vegetable stock instead of wine and no red pepper flakes. This is one of the easiest, fastest and more delicious dished I ever made: it took me less than 5 minutes to prepare, the rest of the time was just waiting for the roasting in the oven. Find the original recipe here.

Poaching is a very easy and healthy cooking technique. The fish was moist and perfectly flaky. The trick is not to boil the fish, but you need to bring it to boiling temperature slowly and keep an eye on the heat.

I served the fish with some brown rice fusili, broccoli and pesto.

The original recipe is from Food and Wine and it’s for pizza, see their recipe here. But I think the final result, which is delicious, looks and tastes more like a pancake, in my opinion. It turned out really good with salmon spread and arugula.

You can make this spread with any left over or canned fish.

Tea-Smoked Salmon

I adapted the recipe from a blog called Invitado de Invierno (see the recipe and blog here) and it looks like the recipe originated from “Simple Ming” episode 203. I have been making it over and over. The result is delicious, exotic and the preparation, more than easy.

I served it with on a bed of baby bitter greens such as kale, tuscan kale, escarole, radicchio and frisee, dressed with lime juice and olive oil. If desired, you could sprinkle some nuts or olives on top of the greens. Then I topped the with leftover roasted winter vegetables. I always cook a big batch of food so I can have it in more than once and/or I can use some of it when cooking further meals. This saves time and helps in case you are caught short handed. Also, note that I usually have a big piece of fish or meat in my final pictures: that’s for photographing purposes, I eat 3 oz of that portion, the rest goes for another meal!

This fish turned out really good. The lemon caper sauce is a classic sauce originally made with butter. Steaming fish is an Asian technique: it’s easy, fast and healthy. I served the fish with oven-baked sweet potato fries.
