Fried Fish and Steamed Broccoli with Ginger Dressing
The ginger dressing on this dish is AMAZING!!!! It tastes a little bit like the dressing you might get a on a plain salad at a sushi restaurant. Just throw the following ingredients into a blender. I used my Magic Bullet, I assume a Vitamix would work just as well.
I made the fish by thawing frozen fish and then dipping it into a mixture of cassava flour, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and then frying it in a cast iron frying pan. I'm sorry, I didn't measure, but basically you can't go wrong!
It's really hard to figure out what kind of fish to buy, isn't it? I buy frozen fish, mostly because I lived on the West Coast for ten years, and fish counters here smell like old fish to me. I always make sure what I purchase specifies that it was wild caught, and strive to find fish that was caught in a human and environmentally-sustainable manner. This is a really great tool for choosing what kind of fish to buy!
I'm a big believer in following your cravings. If you can, stand in the produce section of your grocery store, or in your kitchen, and see what you feel inspired to eat. If we can tune out the call of Doritos and chocolate bars, our body has the capacity to tell us what nutrients it wants. For a couple of years now, I haven't had a taste for broccoli. Then, the last time I went shopping, the craving came back. It was delicious!
What I Eat
I want to give you an idea of how to eat healthfully on a restricted diet, without a lot of work, by showing you how I eat! I eat strictly gluten-free. You'll find A LOT of veggies in this blog! I eat both fish and meat a few times a week (local and/or humane, whenever possible), and dairy when I'm visiting family and friends, or eating out. I hope you find this blog inspiring and interesting!
