Food doesn’t need to be elaborate or doesn’t need to take a bunch of time to be good
Here is a recipe that my picky husband loves. This is also something that we eat quite often especially because its easy and most of the time we aren’t home until 8:30-9pm at night and do not feel like cooking. I know some of you are in the same boat and in order to combat the alternative of eating something quick and easy that is not condusive to our approach of food as fuel this is what we eat.
Tiff & Skip’s No Frills Chicken or Fish
We like to use fresh frozen wild caught orange roughy from Costco. It thaws quick (we put the individual pouches in room temperature water to thaw-usually takes 5-10 minutes). You can use chicken if you like too.
1 fillet of white fish or 1 breast of chicken
1 tbsp coconut oil
Spices of your choosing (We like a garlic and onion blend. You can use any salt-free spices or fresh herbs, I have also used fresh squeezed oj, lemon or lime juice as well for more of a citrus flavor.)
Directions: Heat a skillet with the coconut oil. Place some spices in and gently place chicken or fish on top of spices in the coconut oil. Cook on medium to high heat about 3-4 minutes on each side for fish and 6-8 for chicken or until white throughout. (I would cook the chicken on lower heat for longer so it doesn’t burn on the outside).
I will either throw some fresh veggies in a steamer bag or use the steam fresh veggies from the store if I want less dishes to do. Otherwise I will throw either some more coconut oil or olive oil in a pan and cook up some zucchini and yellow squash and red onion as my favorite veggies to go with this.
