Our family makes about 90% of our food from scratch. However, we don’t have a lot of time for cooking fancy meals, so I have been learning to make very simple recipes lately.
The recipes in the Super Simple Recipe series should only include a handful or so of ingredients and take 10 minutes or less of prep time. However, they make take an hour or more to cook, but with little or no further work required.
This week, I made a simple fish and potato recipe:
5 – 7 medium size, local potatoes
1 lb of local caught fish – if possible – otherwise store-bought will do
Your favorite seasoning – I used one called Israeli spice
Olive Oil – other oils like coconut can work too
Chop up potatoes into chunks and put in 9X13 dish. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle seasoning to your taste. Cook for 50 – 60 minutes @ 400 degrees, give or take a few minutes for the kind of potato. We used Idaho (where we live) Yukon Gold and they take longer to cook than some other varieties.
Take dish out of oven, add fish on top, drizzle with more oil and sprinkle with more seasoning. Cook another 8 to 15 minutes, depending on the type and thickness of the fish. We used store-bought salmon here. Haven’t had time for fishing this year:-o
Serve with a mixed green salad and favorite healthy dressing.
Here are some great cookbooks for simple, healthy, and cheap eating.
