Using thin slices of sea bass or salmon, create a filling and healthy meal by broiling the seasoned fish and pairing with either a fresh salad or with the cooked greens. The addition of quinoa will keep you full for longer and give you lots of energy for a busy day!
Crispy Sea Bass or Salmon
- Cooking and Prep: 30 m
- Serves: 3
Prepare the Fish
Preheat the oven to low broil. Grease a cookie sheet (preferably a real metal one) and lay out the fish in one layer. Do not overcrowd the pan and do not line with parchment paper – it will burn.
Season to taste with salt, pepper, oregano, and minced onion.
Bake for five to seven minutes, on a middle rack, until crispy around the edges (watch it carefully as the fish can burn easily).
If the outer pieces are getting too well done and the center slices are not crisp yet, remove the pan from the oven, allow it to cool, and remove the outer pieces. Then return the pan to the oven to broil the other slices until desired crispness.
Prepare the the Greens and Tomatoes
In a large saucepan over medium heat, add olive oil. Add greens and tomatoes. Stir and let cook for one to two minutes.
Add balsamic vinegar (or coconut aminos), salt, pepper, and fresh ground garlic to taste. Drizzle with sesame oil if desired. Stir and cook just until the greens begin to wilt. Remove from pan.
Instead of half kale and half spinach, you can use one variety of greens.
To plate, spoon the quinoa into a shallow bowl or large plate. Add the greens and tomatoes and top with the fish.
Alternatively, serve this cold as a salad. Massage the greens with oil and balsamic vinegar. Start with one tablespoon of each and add as needed. Season to taste with sesame oil (if using), salt, pepper, and garlic. Add sliced tomatoes and cold quinoa. Serve with crunchy fish once it has cooled.
