Quick Fish Dinner

Last night, I went to the grocery store and picked up some haddock, thinking, “It’s fish, it’s easy, I’ll make something.”

(Moments like this are why I need a smart phone. I could get inspiration at the grocery store and then look up recipes right then and there! But oh well, I don’t have one.)

Anyhow, I went home and searched using the new Google recipe feature. I found a very basic recipe, which I modified slightly, and which was both a.) incredibly easy and b.) incredibly tasty.

Quick ‘n’ Easy Haddock

Preheat oven to 350. Cut up about a pound of haddock (or other white fish that’s on sale) into bite-sized pieces. Grease a baking dish and place in the fish. (It’s OK if they’re crowded together.) Melt about half a stick of butter, and mix with a cup of panko (or bread crumbs), a teaspoon or so of garlic powder, about two teaspoons of lemon zest, and a generous portion of your dried herb of choice (the recipe called for parsley, I used dill). Mix all together and spread lightly over fish. Bake for 20 minutes.

Simple Summertime Dinner

Lately in the evenings I just want something simple and fresh:

  • Fage Greek Yogurt (drizzled with local honey)
  • Fresh Herb Salad (with lemon/mustard dressing)
  • Watermelon a la Rum (what? a girl can’t have a little rum drizzled over her fruit?)

It’s not a bad life, really.
