She sent a huge bag of white fish fillets, I think they are halibut. A good lean source of protein . . . BUT . . not the yummiest thing . . I prefer tilapia less smelly and fishy tasting and more flaky . . But, I am not gonna waste free food.
So I had to come up with a tolerable way to eat this fish . . I tried poaching it, bah! who am I kidding I just boiled the crap out of it in a big pot of water! LOL! Tried eating it with some light italian dressing just like I would have eaten my tilapia . . EWWwww! I was gaging it was awful, so chewy and fishy . . blech! BUT FREE! . . must eat!
So then I tried making fish cakes, this was my first attempt:
I took the
put it in my minni food chopper/processor I
put 1 egg white and a whole ton of Mrs.Dash, garlic and herb and table shake,
and blended it till it was smooth and creamy like thick batter.
I heated up a small skillet and brushed it with a few drops of oil and dumped the batter in.
I made one huge fish cake cuz I was gonna eat the whole thing anyway.
It would probably make 4 smaller cuter fish cakes if ya feel like bein' all Martha Stewart.
I turned out all pretty and golden brown and kinda fluffy. Much easier to chew. I spread dijon mustard on it . . not bad . . not my favorite . . but not bad
My second attempt was much tastier and picture worthy. :)
Veggie Fish Cakes
Blend in mini food chopper till, really mushy, like consistency of hummus :
1 egg white
couple dashes of poultry seasoning
bunch of Mrs. Dash grilled chicken blend
dump that in a bowl and add
chopped steamed broccoli
heat up a non stick pan and brush with a couple drops of oil
I made these all pretty and smaller for the picture, Press firmly into 4 patties and then press flat in the pan , I sprinkled them lightly with pepper and some salty blend stuff
I am sure most of you are more gourmet than me and can add your own spices and veggie mix, adapt the recipe to your taste.
The best part I BARELY TASTED FISH!! they were easy to chew, pleasant to swallow! Good enough for me.
Oh, and they were FREE!
