I’ve been so busy, it seems I don’t have enough time to cook proper meals, let alone post about them. But then, something like this comes along, and it’s a gracious reminder of some of the things I love about food and cooking.
I sometimes, unconsciously, steer away from fish and seafood. I do this for a few reasons: one, I didn’t grow up eating a lot of fish, so it’s not something I crave, and two, I tend to think it’s out of my budget, which is so not true. I went to the fish counter a few weeks ago, and since I was just cooking for myself, picked up a single 4 oz fillet. The cost was just over $2.
In fact, this was one of the least expensive meals I’d cooked in a long time, and due to the freshness of the ingredients – I kept it simple and the whole meal came together fast. Economical, fresh, and simple. Yum.
