Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks about habits – I loved hearing some thoughts from the peanut gallery and seeing other people who resonated with the idea. I’m still flossing; the streak continues! Don’t hold me to it, but I think we’re onto something this time…
Another habit in this house is weeknight cooking! A Monday – Thursday night meal is very rarely consumed outside of the bungalow. And a weeknight meal is often pretty simple ‘round these parts: fish and vegetables.
Disclaimer: the Saucy Fish Co. samples featured below were provided to me free of charge.
A rep at the Saucy Fish Co. (which I tend to pronounce as “Sassy!” in my head) offered us some samples of their new fish + sauce pairings, and I thought – yeah, Of COURSE.
This is a new-t0-the-US product, and currently sold on the East Coast. So for now, I just got lucky enough to snatch up four dinners’ worth of taste testing and a lot of appreciation for someone else figuring out the spice/flavor blend for the night.
In the mix: Sweet Sou & Chili Dressing, Chile Lime & Ginger Dressing, Mango & Chili Sauce + Tomato & Chili Chutney.
So, they have a thing for Chili….which this New Mexican gal is totally fine with.
– packaged servings perfect for a weeknight dinner-for-two
– sustainable fish products
– a mix of complimentary flavors
– little brain power needed for meal-planning!
All we did was prep some veggies (seen above: roasted spiced kale, roasted sweet potatoes, steamed broccoli) and stick the filets in the oven (350*) for about 20 minutes. Voila! Dinner! Perfecto.
With the Mango Chii Sauce I cooked the tilapia and then chilled it for salads the next day, using the sauce as dressing. Another way to enjoy the packaged pair:
Check ‘em out if you’re looking for some easy-to-prep dinners or lunches. This is also a great way to break into cooking fish at home – which tends to intimidate newbies, as it’s easy to dry it out or blank on how to flavor it.
What are some of your favorite fish toppers (sauce or otherwise)?
The best I’ve made myself is this Almond & Roasted Red Pepper…uh, mash? That. These sauces are inspiring me to get back on that creative kitchen box.
