A Simple and Healthy Meal

Sometimes I get bored with cooking rice and ulam so I make use of whatever it is that's in the fridge and cook it for lunch or dinner. And since daughetr loves fish (according to her, it is because her Zodiac sign is Pisces), we always have some on the freezer.

I've been hearing good reviews about this resto that serves baked Parmesan Crusted Fish but haven't tasted it yet. Then I was able to taste the pan-fried Parmesan Fish of Conti's but I know that baked fish are much healthier than fried fish.

With that in mind, I asked daughter to grate some cheddar cheese while I marinated the fish with kalamansi, butter and some spices. Then its off to the oven for about 20 minutes. I paired the fish with some lettuce, grapes and apple salad with mixed-berry yogurt as dressing.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
