Mediterranean Herb Crusted Fish

In addition to Crab Cake Buddha bowl from karenskitchenstories I made Mediterranean crusted fish.  This recipe is from McCormick recipes.  While it calls for Tilapia other white fish will work as well.  I had some cod loins in the refrigerator so that is what I used.

Spices include:  1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. minced garlic, 1 tsp. marjoram, 3/4 tsp. ground mustard, 3/4 tsp. basil leaves, 3/4 tsp.oregano, 1/2 tsp. black pepper. Melt 1/3 cup butter or use olive oil. Mix spices and butter or olive oil. Spread 1 Tbs. of mixture on to fish. To the rest of the butter add 1-1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach leaves, 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs, 1/3 cup finely chopped red bell pepper, 3 Tbs. shredded Parmesan cheese. Mix together well. Spread evenly among the fish fillets. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily.

Cooking for Jeffrey Cookbook by Ina Garten

 

Ina Garten is one of my favorite Food Network chefs. Her recipes are delicious, her style down to earth. I received Cooking For Jeffrey as a gift and am trying to go through the recipes, one at a time.

A wonderful summer recipe Fiesta Corn&Avocado Salad. Ingredients are simple and fresh: Corn on the cob, avocado, tomato, yellow pepper, jalapeno. Dressing ingredients include: lime juice, olive oil, garlic, chipotle chili powder (I didn’t have any chipotle powder so I used bay seasoning). A delicious summer recipe to serve with salmon.
