What’s for lunch? Gastro Series
Fall is again here and I’m back in business. I took a break for a while from everything. Break from to the gym, nutrition and doing anything reasonable. I went swimming, met friends, had a fun girls night, travelled and visited different places, went to a festival, had different parties to attend to and so on… So I really enjoyed my summer and the break was so needed and worth it!
My first post for this Fall is easy and delicious lunch meal prep. We also made a decision to toss our hideous plastic containers away and buy new glass containers, which are a bit more eco-friendlier and maybe we can at the same time avoid consuming microplastics.
For this week I did 4 lunches of almond crusted fish, wok vegetables and brown rice. This dish is very easy and quite fast to do. I cooked the rice in our new microwave which has different programs. Then I added some wok vegetables and voilà the meal prep is done. This might be the third or fourth time in the last 6 months that I’ve made almond crusted fish for lunch. I promise, you are going to be hooked! 😅
Almond Crusted Alaskan Pollock
Easy and very delicious pollock
- 400 g pollock
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 5 g butter
- 15 g flour
- 52 g breadcrumbs
- 38 g almond slices
- 1 tsp paprika powder
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 52 ml milk
- 20 ml water
- 80 ml cream
- 50 g shredded mozzarella
Heat the oven to 200°C and place the pollock to an oven dish. Add some lemon juice, salt and black pepper. Bake for 15 minutes in the oven.
In a pan melt the butter, add the wet ingredients (milk, water, cream) and also the cheese. Mix until the cheese has melted. Add the rest ingredients, breadcrumbs, flour, chili and paprika powder.
Lastly add the almond slices (you can save some of them to garnish). Also you can add other spices to your liking. If the mixture is too stiff, you can add some water.
When the mixture is ready, cover the fish with the mixture. Bake in the oven for other 30 minutes and enjoy!
