If you’ve read much of my website, you’ll know I find the battle to get dinner on the table while working full-time to be exhausting, frustrating and often down right bloody. Remind me to tell you sometime about the Mandoline Incident of 2006.
But one thing I’ve learned is that if one dish works, try applying its principles to create more dishes that work. I’ve done this the past couple weeks by substituting the chicken in my family’s favorite Garlic Lime Chicken dish with fish. So far I’ve used haddock and cod. I preferred the haddock but it is good with cod. What I’m saying is, use a good firm, white-fleshed fish, preferably wild.
The instructions are the same, just use a pound of fish. In Four Ingredient Supper, Garlic Lime Fish, I count the spice rub as one ingredient, the fish as one ingredient and the lime juice and chicken broth for the sauce as the final two. I don’t count using butter and oil to saute the fish as an ingredient. So shoot me.
