So my intention was to make a Sesame Fish recipe for dinner and then write a post about it…but guess what? It’s pretty tough to make “Sesame Fish” when you are all out of sesame seeds. It was already late when I got home (I had a lovely massage after school – thanks Phyllis! – and then went back to work for about an hour and a half), I had my heart set on the Tilapia, and I didn’t have time to thaw something else, so I just rolled with it. I’m cool with that, but it kinda ruined the “recipe” post. Oh well; you will just have to be cool with it too!
Meanwhile, I steamed brocoli and cauliflower (also sprinkled with a bit of Mrs. Dash). When the veggies were done, I tossed on a little bit of Kraft 4 Cheese Italiano Light. I also fried fresh mushrooms in a tiny bit of olive oil spray with crushed garlic and a sprinkle of No Salt Montreal Steak spice – yum!
I accompanied the fish and veggies with a nice tossed salad – lettuce, spinach, cucumber, celery, carrots and tomato. I dressed the salad with a splash of Rene’s Sherry Herb Italian Vinaigrette; I prefer Rene’s salad dressings because they actually have fresh ingredients and need to be refrigerated. I often wonder what chemicals must be in the salad dressings that can be stored unrefrigerated on the shelf for months at a time. Hmm…not so appealing!
To top off my meal, I enjoyed a cold glass of almond milk – much better than your typical dairy milk, in my opinion. I like the unsweetened Earth’s Own (especially because I use it in fruit smoothies where I really don’t need the added sugar), but I have also tried and liked the regular (sugar added) stuff!
All in all, it was a pretty decent dinner, and I would indeed make it again…if I was out of sesame seeds. Maybe it’s because I’d been thinking about it all day, but the sesame fish would’ve been better. I’ll pick up some sesame seeds so I can make and review the recipe for you sometime soon!
