Sauteed Fish in Honey and Lemon

My husband is out for the Holy Week and I am left to myself alone in the house.  Because I am too lazy to cook fancy, I once again whipped myself with what is available in the kitchen, white fish, lemons and honey.

So here is dinner for me:

1 cream dory fillet
1 medium sized lemon, juiced
2 tbsp honey
salt and pepper

1. Mix lemon and honey, salt and pepper. Pour over cream dory. Marinate for 1 hr.
2. Transfer dory in a foil, sprinkle basil and pepper. 
3. Fold ends of the aluminum foil to ensure that the fish is covered tightly. This is to ensure moisture is not lost.
4. Steam fish for 20 min.


Note: I cut my fish into bite sizes to easily absorb marinade and for faster cooking.

Vegetable Salad in a Jar

I have been trying to eat healthy, keeping off from all the meat.  For months I have been off beer, sodas, and all bottled juices.  I am not totally a fan of vegetable but I have been forcing myself to stick to the greens.

So I planned on making some salad for dinner and to save on time for the next meals, I decided to prepare them in my mason jars.I would like to share with you a quick and easy, single serve salad that you could store for 3-4 days in the fridge and  you could just grab when you need something light.

2 tbsp Thousand Island Dressing
2 -in long carrots, cut into strips
2 in long cucumber, sliced
quarter of apples, cubed
8 pcs grapes, sliced
romainne lettuce, sliced
cheese, shredded

1.  Fill your mason jar with the dressing.
2.  Layer carrots, cucumber, apples, and grapes inside the jar.  Give the jar a tap so the empty spaces could be filled.
3.  Add the shredded cheese.
4.  Finally, all as much lettuce that you could fill the remaining space of your jar.

You could actually, add more ingredients like tomatoes or turnip.. Likewise, you could change the dressing to vinagrette.  It is all up to you.

Happy healthy eating everyone.
