Nut Crusted Cod and Veggie Medley

Yummy.  I’ve never had cod that isn’t battered and deep fried with tartar sauce… This is a tasty option, lol

Nut Crusted Cod
My cod was frozen and was falling apart due to sitting in it’s water (I’ll thaw it differently next time), so my cod fell apart as a I took it from the pan.  Tastes good though!

Combine:
Crushed Nuts (I used almonds)     Epicure Fish Rub    A few grinds of Epicure pepper, a grind of salt

Cod fillets dipped in plate of Melted Coconut or olive oil, then dredged in the nut mixture.  Bake in 400 oven 10 mins or until crusty and flaky

Veggy Medley
Random veggies.  I had mini onions, a red pepper and zucchini.  I fried my onions in olive oil with garlic, added in my pepper and zucchini and a generous sprinkle of Epicure’s veggie seasoning.

Coconut Butter Chicken

Since I can’t have dairy except for a tiny bit of butter I came up with this alternative.  The kids said it was one of the best ‘Butter Chickens’ they ever had and until I told them didn’t even realize it was coconut!

  • 1-2 Tbsp each Butter and Coconut Oil (Or just use butter)
  • 2 med onions, diced small
  • Cook this in your Epicure Wok on Medium while you cut up your chicken (cook at least 5-10mins)

Add in:  3 chicken breasts – in 1/2 inch dice (I had 2.5 to 3 cups of diced chicken breast), cook 5 mins until lighly browned and cooked through.
Add:  Generous shakings of Tandoori and Garam Masala (I prob used at least a couple tsp of each).  Cook a couple mins until very fragrant.
Add:  one can of Coconut milk (my fav is Real Thai although it is very high in calories)

Optional – a few Tbsp of Tomato Paste would be good in here too although tomato are on the arthritis suspect list so I left it out.

Simmer until ready to eat!
