Healthy Recipes to Keep You Fit and Fabulous

Easy Fish Dinner

Where have I been this week?!

I’ll tell ya. In hell.

I had two HUGE tests back to back in my Anatomy and Physiology 2 class that I’m taking this summer.  Being a 6-week course, I am there Monday-Thursday from 1:30-4:45.  Three weeks left and I cannot WAIT to be done!

On top of that, I’ve added a giant task to my never-ending “To Do” list…are you ready?

I’M PLANNING OUR WEDDING!!!!!!!

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Due to my recent change of plans for school, Corey and I, along with our families, decided that it would be smarter to have our wedding a little sooner than our original plans of November 2012.  OK, a lot sooner.  Like, a whole year sooner!

That’s right! We are getting married on November 26, 2011- 6 months from now.  Ahhhhh!

I have been a busy little wedding bee running around trying to pick out churches and venues and guest lists…it’s crazy, but a lot of fun!  Kind of.

My busy schedule has lead to some very monotonous meals lately.

Breakfasts

I’ve literally eaten a bowl of oats with peanut butter mixed in for almost two-weeks straight.  I think I hate oats.

Lunches

To round out my boring breakfasts, I’ve gotten into a lunch routine this week, as well, consisting of Subway veggie subs!

6-inches of spinach, tomatoes, green peppers, banana peppers, pickles, provolone and honey mustard. Yum!

Dinner

One meal this week that stuck out as a keeper was as simple as it gets.  I am a big fan of seafood, and if it wasn’t so expensive, I would eat it every day!  Corey picked up a huge piece of grouper at our local fish market.  We marinated it for 30 minutes with lemon juice, a little olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, cilantro and red pepper flakes.

We heated up the grill, placed the fish on some tinfoil and cooked it until it flaked with a fork.

While it cooked, I came inside and fried some already-prepared shrimp. We bought them thinking they were coconut shrimp, so I was pretty disappointed to discover that they were just plain ol’ breaded shrimp.

I used canola oil to fry them, because, for some reason, that makes me feel slightly less guilty than frying in regular oil.

We served our seafood feast with steamed broccoli and brussel sprouts, and a little Dijon mustard for dipping!

There really is no better meal for your body than fish and vegetables.  I think many people are afraid of cooking fish, but it really is as simple as making chicken!

If you don’t have a grill, you could easily make this same meal by placing the fish in a baking dish in the oven at 350 degrees, and cooking for about 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness.  The good thing about fish is that most types flake with a fork when they are fully cooked, so it eliminates the guessing game.  Give it a try!

  1. Dr. Turner,
    I bake fish at 450 degrees for about the same time. Try this recipe, place asparagus in the baking dish with a little evoo sprayed on it and place salmon on top of the asparagus. umm umm. You can also add a few slices of onion and you could also marinate the salmon in a lemon/tequila marinade. Plus you get to hit the tequila while you have the bottle out.:) love your blog!!
