potato crusted cod with jalapeno honey
We’re big fans of anything crusted. I know, it doesn’t sound so appealing but trust us, this ones delicious! We like to serve this with whatever roasted vegetables are in season (pictured with zucchini and squash). This is one of our favorite, super quick recipes.
2 4-6 ounce codfish steaks
1/2 cup flour
1 cup dried mashed potato flakes
salt, pepper, parsley
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
fresh lemon or lemon juice
Place the flour in a shallow dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper. In another bowl, beat the eggs. In a third dish, place the mashed potato flakes.
Heat the oil and butter in a large non-stick pan on medium – high heat. Dip the fish steaks in the flour, then the egg, and then the potato. For crispier fish, dip into the potato flakes a second time. Cook each side about 4-5 minutes or until cooked through. Sprinkle parsley on each side about half way through. Remove from heat and squeeze fresh lemon. Before serving, drizzle with some jalapeno honey.
Makes 2 servings.
iced coconut chai latte
This iced chai latte is one of our favorites and soooo easy and quick to make. Refreshing enough on a hot summer day and rich enough in the midst of winter. We like it best with coconut milk but it’s also tasty with almond milk!
raw cane sugar
Bring 2 cups of coconut milk to a boil. Add 1-2 tablespoons chai tea and 1-2 teaspoons sugar to taste. Let simmer for 3-4 minutes. Strain and let cool. Pour over a glass of ice and enjoy!
mohito mint iced tea recipe
Mohito mint iced tea, a perfect refresher on a hot summer day! Make a pitcher, invite some friends over, and have some good old fashioned, fresh brewed tea. Our mohito mint green tea is made from all organic Ancient Forest green tea, mohito mint leaves, and spearmint leaves. Nothing artificial, ever. Not only is it yummy but green tea has some amazing health benefits!
mohito mint organic green tea (purchase here)
simple syrup (or raw sugar)
mint leaves (optional)
fresh lemon slices (optional)
This iced tea is best if cold brewed. Add 1 tablespoon of mohito mint green tea for every cup of water. Add about 1 teaspoon of simple syrup or sugar for every cup of water, more or less to taste – we like ours sweet! Store in the refrigerator overnight or up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, strain the tea and pour over ice. Add fresh mint and lemon to garnish.
