Today’s post-workout late lunch / more like linner. Reeeally could have used a bigger plate. Look at this awful plating.
Sharing anyways because I tried a new method of cooking fish today!
I’d just come back from a gym workout (which went aaweesome — so much energy today), was super hungry, and didn’t know what to cook. Had some wild cold and some parchment paper, so I tried making Cod en Papillote for the first time. I’ve seen people make this before, but I didn’t look up a recipe beforehand and just winged it…
In the parchment pouch, I put in wild cod + ginger, garlic, scallions + shittake mushrooms, frozen edamame + soy sauce, sesame oil, white pepper, salt. Next time I’ll add some shaoxing rice vinegar and chili paste.
Didn’t know what the hell I was doing, but this didn’t turn out bad when it came out of the oven! This is how I come up with most if not ALL of my recipes. I just fool around in the kitchen not having a clue what I’m doing haha. If you want to learn how to cook, that’s how you start. At least that’s what I do anyway.
So on the plate: quinoa (leftovers), fresh stir fried baby bok choy with garlic, steamed kabocha, and the cod. And a spicy miso tofu soup in the back.
Can’t wait to try it again now that I know what not to do. 😉
