Unboring Cashew Crusted Halibut-Eat by Color Style

IMG_3066

Unboring cashew crusted halibut looks gourmet and is easier to make that you think.  This Eat by Color recipe is pretty simple.  The hardest thing to locate for most will be fresh halibut.   I got lucky as a local family has a son that is exported fresh fish from Alaska to the Midwest.  I got a fair deal on fresh halibut.

Ingredients:

1 lb of Halibut Filets

2 Cups of Panko

8 oz of Cashews

Handful of Almonds (literally all I had left in the kitchen so I tossed them in to the mix :-))

4 TBS of Parmesan Cheese (I used the stuff in the green can as I forgot to buy some fresh)

1 TSP each of Rosemary, Thyme, and Oregano

1 TBS Butter

IMG_3065

Run the cashews and almonds through the food processor.  I used the pulse button and got carried away as I ended up with more a powder blend than a nice chunky mix.  Live and learn I guess.  Mix the panko, nuts, parmesan and spice in a bowl.  Wash the halibut.  Pour the panko nut mix onto a plate.  Mine was a bout a 1/4 inch deep on the plate.  Then press the fish onto the mix.  Flip and do the same thing.  Now there are some recipes that call for dipping the fix in eggs, milk, or some combo there of.  The way I did it was lower on calories and fat.  Since the panko nut mix stuck just fine to the fish I see no reason to do it any other way.

I melted 1 TBS of butter in a cast iron oven safe pot.  Heat the oven to 350.  Place fish in cast iron pot and bake for 15-20 minutes.  Since ovens vary you may need to bake longer or at a high temp.  The fish will flake apart when done.

Optional serve  with roasted red potatoes and a white sauce.

Step away from the machine so arms are straight out to sides with slight bend in elbow. Decrease distance between hands (like doing a bear hug). Slowly allow arms to return to starting position at sides.

We shot this video during a DISH event at our local Hyvee in Sycamore Illinois. DISH allows a group of people to batch prep meals that are bagged and froze to be cooked later. What is really nice is Hyvee pulls all of the groceries and does the clean up. The group shows up preps the meals. We prepped 72 meals (each feeds 4 adults) in less than an hour and a half. The best part… I handled the recipe selection and they are all Eat by Color friendly.

IMG_3094

Sliced roast beef and egg muffin.  With a little imagination you can come up with great portable egg sandwiches like this.  Left over roast beef sliced thin.  Toasted, whole grain English muffin and scrambled eggs.  Combine and you have a portable high protein meal.

Ingredients:

1 lb Left over Roast Beef

6 Eggs

4 Whole Grain English Muffins

Cheddar Cheese

Butter

 

IMG_3091Slice left over beef thin. Place in frying pan and warm up on low heat. Remember the beef is already cooked so we are just heating it up here.

Scramble the eggs…not going to explain this as I am assuming most can scramble eggs.  Toast the English muffins.

Butter the muffins.  Place beef on muffin and top with cheese and eggs.  Dunzo!

 

 

Unboring Sliced Chicken Tacos-Eat by Color Style

IMG_3101

Unboring, sliced chicken tacos.  These sliced chicken tacos were so good they were GONE before I could get pics.  So all you get is a pic of the chicken after the first few tacos were made and the recipe.

Ingredients:

2 Lbs Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast

2 Packets of Taco Seasoning

Flatouts or Foldits

Sour Cream

1 TBS Olive Oil

1.5 Cups of Water

Use culinary scissors to slice the chicken breast thin.  Sautee chicken in olive oil.  Once the chicken is cooked (use a meat thermometer if you need too) add the taco seasoning and water.  Simmer and make sure the taco seasoning is thoroughly mixed with the chicken.  Dunzo!  We used the flatouts instead of tortillas and topped with sour cream.
