Pescatarian Thanksgiving!Posted: November 16, 2010
Tonight I got really inspired to cook an actual meal. I have been seriously slacking in the divided meals lately and I tend to just throw a bunch of stuff in a pot and mix it up.
Well that changed tonight!
Welcome to a Pescatarian Thanksgiving!
- Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon
- Long Grain Brown Rice
- Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Yellow Cauliflower
- Leek and Cranberry Dressing
First thing get your rice started with 1/2 cup rice and 1 cup water + salt. (I made extra to use at a later date). Once that is going get to chopping brussels and c-flower. Place the veggies two baking sheets and cover in preferred oil, S&P(I went with coconut). Throw them in over at 350 and bake for 30-45 depending if you like them to get crispy or not/have patients for. The rice will take about 45min so you might as well cook them that long as well. Once the rice was going and the oven was baking, I hit the shower. I love doing this because I feel like I am killing two birds with one stone.
Once out of the water I started in on the leek and cranberry dressing. In a pot bring together 1/2 cup apple juice, 1 cup fresh cranberries, 1 tbs mustard, 4 sprigs of thyme, 1/2 of one leek, S&P, 1 tsp apple cider vinegar. Let this simmer for about 15min until it thickens. It will be a bit tart and spicy so if you are looking for a sweet cranberry dressing add about a tablespoon of sugar.
After you get the cranberries going cook your salmon your favorite way. I do not have a grill so I did mine on the stove stop with coconut oil and S&P.
Deliciousness and a real meal!
Cheese! Told you I just got out of the shower!
What kind of Thanksgiving are you having? Fish? Turkey? Veg?
I saw Turkeys on their way to slaughter on the news this morning and it was really depressing…
