The perfect meal to accompany watching LOST or Survivor, or just to kick those winter blues!
4 Whiting fillets (you can also use ma-hi ma-hi, but I’m a very frugal chef. You won’t taste the fish anyway)
1 8-oz package dried shredded coconut
1 16-oz can mixed tropical fruit in juice
2 tbsp peanut oil
Preheat oven to 400. Thaw fish if frozen, and paint with peanut oil before rolling in coconut. Place in glass baking dish. Pour fruit with juice over fish. Bake for 20 minutes or until fish is flaky on the outside. (Please monitor closely. My oven is strange, and I’m not entirely sure of the time.)
Comfort Food Mashed Potatoes:
5 cups mashed potatoes
1 tbsp nutmeg
Stir these ingredients together. This can be pretty strong with the nutmeg, so taste as you add it to be sure it’s not too strong for you.
Bright vegetable salad:
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 yellow pepper, diced
1 cucumber, diced
1 tomato, chopped finely
cilantro to taste
1 tsp olive oil
Because the fish will be sweet, I will not add a dessert recipe. But, if you must, I do suggest a chocolate-raspberry lava cake, which I usually make from a mix.
