IMG_1088What to do with fish? It’s not as intimidating as it seems, we promise!

Here’s how to cook up a simple piece of fresh flounder into a delectable dinner experience. It’s all about perception, so why not make your plate look pretty while you’re at it!

“The more we make each meal a feast for our eyes and mouths, the more it nourishes the deeper levels of our being.” – Elson M. Haas MD

Serves 2 – Prep time 5 minutes – Total time – 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz Fresh flounder
  • 1 large garlic clove, diced
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 slices of fresh lemon juice
  • a few pinches of sesame seeds

Directions:

1. Prep your sauce: Chop up your garlic, add sesame oil, tamari, vinegar and lemon juice into a bowl. Whisk it up!

2. Cook: Heat up a medium pan over medium heat, add your sauce. Once sauce is heated, add fish right on top. Let poach in your sauce for 5-7 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of your fish. It’s ready once it starts flaking and is no longer grey inside, rather white.

3. Finish: Add your fish to a plate, garnish with sprinkles of sesame seeds. Pair with some steamed bok choy, and raw carrot sticks like above, or get creative with the veggies you have on hand.

Enjoy your delicious fish creation!
