Grilled Flounder, Glazed Carrots, Mushrooms and Figs YAWYE Healthy Recipe

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Howdy all!

 

I'm really trying to eat healthier these days, but I refuse to sacrifice one of my favorite things to do: EATING. I love food, but I know I will not stick with any type of diet or eating habit if it's not tasty. That's why I am committed to cooking healthy, but delicious food like this next dish.

 

What I have learned is you can make good food as long as you follow the whole "everything in moderation" mantra. I also allow myself a "cheat" day sometimes (Like the fried chicken and mashed taters I made the other day).

 

I mixed some of my homemade garlic aoili with a good squeeze of lemon juice, lemon zest, fresh cayenne pepper, fresh Italian parsley, fresh thyme, ground black pepper and freshly grated parmesan cheese. I also added a pinch of a sea salt that was smoked with coconut and lime. I love these artisan salts, they add a nice smokey flavor. I'm kind of a smoked salt junkie.

I divided the aoli mixture over three flounder filets grilled over coals for about 5 minutes. As a side dish I made glazed carrots, portabella mushrooms and fresh figs. I added a couple of teaspoons of a brown sugar substitute (Ideal brand) and a high quality aged balsamic vinegar. Simple, but flavorful dish. Yummy.

This was my friends plate, I had only one of the filets and a smaller portion of the side dish. Very good and just the right portion for a Squirrel! Thanks for looking!

I have a nice Turkey fig tree that produces big.  I never know what to do with the fruit.  Thanks for the idea.  How'd it taste?

Looks great.

 

Have to check out that ideal brand brown sugar substitute.

Wow, reasturant-quality presentation! Fantastic job! Question: does brown sugar interfere with the natural fish flavor? Thanks for sharing.
