Meredith is still working to recreate her favorite cod meal. This was our latest attempt. We used this Rasamalaysia / Nobu (local).
We basically followed the recipe but used red miso, and maybe a little extra. We were a bit hesitant about searing it so hot. We also followed a similar Kitchn recipe is and seared it for a bit too long. But we only baked it for about 4 minutes (after ~2 min per side of sear).
It was overcooked, but not too bad. It also stuck to the pan a bit more than I was expecting. But we did like it. The marinade was a bit too salty alone, but it was fine in the fish. I think we would try this again!
We also made Twist Peppers. I think they needed a bit more time. And some dipping sauce

This was what is becoming a standard: Ginger and Snow Pea, Shrimp Stir Fry with Cauliflower Rice.
We basically followed the directions except Meredith is still avoiding wheat as we come off Whole30 so we still used coconut aminos. Otherwise, I just used extra sriracha and some sesame oil in the sauce. Oh, and I skipped the garlic but added garlic powder to the sauce.
I actually made three servings with it since we had a lot of shrimp so we also have a lunch. Pretty easy, healthy, and tasty

We made Shepherd's Pie (along with a ton of prep ahead stuff) for dinner. It was pretty standard but with some different veggies. We made the beef with ground beef (in a bit of butter). We took the beef out and sautéed an onion, a bell pepper, and then later two yellow squashes. We then added frozen peas (which is part of the "recipe", not that there is one).
We seasoned it with salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder and lots of 21 seasoning salute.
Meredith did most of the mashed potatoes. She used greek yogurt, salt,garlic powder (a lot), a little bit of butter, and scallions.
It came out really good. As with last time, it looked like it was all meat but when cooked and served, it actually seemed like mostly potato.
Either way, it was great comfort food but pretty healthy (4 oz potato and 2.6 oz of beef per serving)! We should keep it in mind more since it made 6 servings so we have lunches too!

We made deviled eggs for a party. We did the Smokey Deviled Eggs as we had done before except we made a few small changes. First, we actually did use mayonaise1 since we wanted them to be dairy free. Also, since our friend at the part was on a restrictive diet, we did the frizzled onions on the side.
They worked really well. I think I actually liked them more with mayo. And we did steam them a bit longer (15 min at ABQ altitude) so we had a firmer yolk for the filling.

This was both our last Whole30 dinner and Valentines, but we went pretty easy. I did my usual seared salmon with some Mural of Flavor (described on 2017-01-25). I also used ghee for the oil but I brushed it on first which worked well. The salmon was very good. I was afraid I overcooked it but it came out fine. Note that the higher temp was better.
Meredith also made the broccolini like she did on Sunday and that was, again, very good.
Overall, a very fast and quick meal that was pretty tasty!

We had about 10oz of lean turkey leftover from yesterday and decided to make turkey chorizo like we did on 2017-01-20. We were originally going to also fry some eggs on the side but instead we decided we weren't too hungry and went with just sauteeing two peppers first and adding spinach at the end. Since we had less than the 1 lbs it calls for, I went scant with the spices
As expected, this was actually pretty good and pretty easy. A quick meal we will keep in mind. Also, petty tasty

While we made this a few times already this month (A,B), we made Coconut Turkey Meatballs but this time with green curry paste just to mix it up. We followed the same changes as last time to make it less dry (and again, coconut flour). We also used an extra bell pepper to bulk it up. Also, we only had one can of coconut milk (and it was low-fat) so we used the milk-substitute kind for the other 3/4 cups.
It was pretty good. I am not sure I could really taste the difference with the green vs red curry but the red has a nicer color for the future1.
Also, we meant to put hot peppers in but totally forgot. Oh well.
While we will make it again, once Whole30 is over, we'll probably make it less often since it is pretty caloric ↩

We made our pretty regular Patatas Bravas for lunch. Last time, we had big pieces of onion and forgot to blend it. This time, Meredith super chopped the onions and we chose to skip blending it.
For the potatoes, I microwaved them for about 6 minutes before doing them in the pan for about 30 minutes at 400°F. After they got super stuck last time, I used the non-stick foil.
I liked it a lot as usual. Lots of smokiness from the paprika and a bit spicy, but very good.<<<<
