Tonight I whipped out a recipe collection (i.e., supermarket check-out line booklet) that I have flipped through a million times, and used once or twice since purchasing, but not much more. But it is chock full of inspiring, heart-healthy related stories and tips, not just recipes, so it is a fun read. Because who doesn't support heart health?! Sidenote: I am also happy to report the purchase of a new food magazine, that, upon my first brief inspection, is full of delish new meals for me to try. But that's for another blog post.
Fish Steaks with Honey-Dijon Glaze
Source: American Heart Association Go Red for Women Recipe Collection, Winter 2009
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp dijon
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1/8 tsp cayenne
- 4 halibut, salmon or swordfish fillets (4 oz each), rinsed and patted dried (used salmon)
- 2 tsp canola oil
- In a shallow dish, stir together honey, mustard, thyme and cayenne. Dip the fish into the mixture, turning to coat.
- In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat, swirling to coat the pan. Cook fish for 3-4 mins on each side, or until it flakes easily when tested with a fork.
Yield: 4 servings (3 oz fish/serving)
Per serving: 188 cals; 5.5g fat (0.5g sat; 0g trans; 1.5g poly; 2.5g mono); 36mg chols; 215mg sodium; 10g carbs; 24g protein
Success! I didn't completely burn the fish and it was totally edible! I also liked that I had all of the ingredients on hand, with the exception of the protein itself. My only real complaint is that the recipe called for just 1/8 tsp of cayenne, and I barely tasted it, so next time I would add a bit more.
