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.


Saute Shrimp and Spinach

Saute Shrimp and Spinach

One of my go to recipes is  shrimp with a side of saute spinach.  Not only is it healthy but it is IMG_0292easy to make.








1 bunch of spinach

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup chicken broth

1 tbs. butter

1 pound shrimp

Emeril essence spice


To cook the shrimp:


Heat olive oil in a hot skillet.  Take the shells off the shrimp and place in a bowl.




Sprinkle EmerIMG_0280il essence on the shrimp and toss.  Turn the shrimp over when the bottom is pink. Cook until pink.




Spinach Saute:

Wash the spinach and lay it on paper towels and squeeze out all the water.  You may also use a salad spIMG_0279inner but paper towels work just as well.









Heat a skillet on medium heat.  Place the butter and minced garlic  in the pan. Melt the butter and saute the garlic for a few seconds. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil.  Tear half of the spinach in to bite size pieces and put in broth.  Saure Spinach for 10 – 20 seconds.  Add the rest of the spinach and cook for a few seconds until the second batch of spinach is just starting to wilt.

Add some french bread and some white wine and you have a simply good meal.
