EwE - Fish with Almond Topping, Saffron Rice and Lemon Broccolini - One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
For this week's Eating with Ellie, Margaret chose One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish as our theme, harking back to the title of a well-known Dr Seuss classic book.
I chose to make Fish with Almond Topping, Saffron Rice and Lemon Broccolini from So Easy. I cannot begin to adequately describe how scrumptious this meal was. It took a little bit of fussing around with three dishes to make, and a food processor involved to make the almond topping, but in the end, it was worth it. The nutty topping on the fish, glued on solely by moisture, was a simple but very tasty way to jazz up plain old white fish. The fish is then baked, making the cooking process fat free. The rice is cooked in chicken stock and saffron, and I used brown rice to up the nutrient factor. The broccolini is steamed and then drizzled with a mixture of lemon juice and oil. Together, these three components make magic.
