Paleo Baked Talapia with sautéed Zucchini and Dill

Lemon-dill-soup-9236So this post is dedicated to Molly. She told me the other day she loves looking at my blog for recipe ideas BUT… Can I please add more seafood? So I decided to branch out and try a fish I have never cooked before. Talapia. It was fine. I don’t really know a whole lot about white fish, so if there is a better white fish to cook like this – please – suggestions welcome!

The real star of this dish is the sautéed veggies. I love this combo of veggies with dill together. Delish!! This is a must have side dish to serve to guests.

Ingredients:

* 2 talapia fishes or other white fish pieces
* fresh dill
* olive oil
* seasoning of your choice
* juice of 1 lemon

* 2 small zucchini’s
* 2 small yellow zucchini’s. I forget the official name of them
* 1 small white onion
* fresh dill
* salt/pepper

1. Make little boats with aluminum foil that you will put your fish in. Coat the bottom with a little olive oil.

2. Add your fish, drizzle with olive oil, squeeze a ton of lemon, and add a ton of fresh dill and seasonings to it.

3. Close up tight, put in the oven at 375 for about 15 minutes or until the fish is completely white and not transparent.

4. While your fish is cooking slice up your yellow and green zucchini’s and cut your onion into slices. Add these to a sautéed pan with some olive oil.

5. Chop up your fresh dill and add this to the veggies along with some salt and pepper. I have this amazing ‘Thai salt’ that I use and is so good. Don’t overcook these or they will get mushy. About 5-7 minutes. The more dill the better. I’m sure you can use dry, but fresh really makes this pop.

Unwrap fish, serve veggies, and enjoy!

Paleo Tuna Patties

tuna

I have been trying to make different things for lunch since salads can get a little dull. This was a good one, but it may need more eggs to help it stick together better. Other then that, it was really good.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of tuna
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 tbls chopped red onion
  • 1-2 tbls chopped celery
  • 1 tbls almond meal
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dill
  • olive oil or coconut oil

Mix all the ingredients together and spoon divide the mixture into 4 servings. Make the patties small enough so they can flip without breaking. I think I made mine too big and they did fall apart a little bit. Also make sure to put enough olive oil or coconut oil in the pan so they don’t stick. Or maybe you have a nice frying pan that things don’t stick to. I don’t, mine sucks.

Serve by itself or with a small salad, great way to mix things up with tuna!

Coconut crusted shrimp

20120707-183451.jpg

These were so good that I am going to make them tomorrow too when I have company over! I havent had much seafood lately so I am going to try a few shrimp and fish dishes this week. Well we are off to a good start!

Imgredients:

  • 1 lb of large shrimp
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1 cup of almond flour or almond meal
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup coconut oil for frying shrimp

Take your shrimp and cut them lengthwise so they will butterfly when you cook them. Make sure to de-poop them!

Take your eggs and whisk them. Add the garlic powder, salt, and pepper and whisk together. Take the cup of almond meal and coconut and mix together in a separate bowl. Take your shrimp and coat them with the egg spice mixture then coat with the coconut/almond mixture .

Get a saucepan big enough to hold all shrimp at once. Add the coconut oil and heat until very hot. Add the shrimp and cook on each side about 2 minutes each, or until the crust is a light golden brown.

Serve with some type of spicy sweet dipping sauce. I had this pepper jelly I bought from this lady at the farmers market because she was so nice. Never thought I would use it! I just heated it up. I am going to look for a good paleo sauce though to use next time. Also a good mango salad, seems like that would be a good counter part to this dish.

Sooooo good

Seafood paleo pesto ‘pasta’

20120627-141428.jpg

This is a super easy, super healthy, delicious meal that everyone will love. I must advise, if you don’t have a food processor by now, get one! They make everything easier, quicker, and taste better. Okay, maybe not taste better but easy and quick!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 tbls. Olive oil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • Bag o’ seafood from Trader Joes (in the frozen section. Has calamari rings,shrimp, and scallops)
  • 3 large zucchini’s
  • Salt/pepper
To make the pesto sauce just add the basil, garlic, olive oil, and pine nuts into the food processor. Blend until creamy smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cook the seafood mixture in a little olive oil in frying pan. Add pesto sauce and complete cooking.
In the meantime cut your zucchini into thin slices or use a mandolin. (Target has them for like $5). Then cut into slices into smaller slices that resemble fettuccine. Boil these until tender, think al dente. Add to pesto seafood mixture and stir until pesto has coated everything.
Serve with cherry tomatoes and enjoy!
