You probably read that title and were overwhelmed by two completely different post topics. Let’s keep things interesting around here. In the new year, I vowed to eat more whole foods and really focus on vegetables, fruit, and lean proteins. As much as I love fish, I often forget how easy it is to make at home. Like so easy guys. All fish really needs is a good marinade or some fresh herbs. Then you just pop it in the oven and bake!
I had some Atlantic cod left over from my Sizzlefish box that I needed to use, and since cod is a very mild fish, I created a very flavorful marinade. I hope you’re not sick of sriracha. And if you are, just substitute it out with the hot sauce of your choice but DON’T TELL ME ABOUT IT. 😉
Sriracha Orange-Ginger Cod
- 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
- 2 tbsp. soy sauce
- 1 tbsp. sriracha
- 1 tbsp. freshly grated ginger
- 1/2 tbsp. honey
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 4 portions of codfish (3.5-4 oz. each)
- Preheat oven to 400* and line a baking dish with enough foil to create a packet for the fish.
- In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, soy sauce, sriracha, ginger, honey, and garlic. Set aside.
- Pat fish dry with a paper towel then place in baking dish. Pour sauce on top, then pinch together the sides of foil so the fish is completely enclosed.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until fish lightly flakes with fork. Serve immediately.
As you can see, I ate my fish with some sautéed kale and quinoa. There was extra sauce from the fish, so I drizzled that on top of everything. It was delicious. If you love that sweet and spicy combo, try this out. I think it would be great with any mild fish or salmon.
Now, for some goals. Yesterday I mentioned loving LC’s resolution list. It didn’t occur to me until I read my friend Lauren’s post that I should actually share my ideas with you. Here we go!
A bad habit I’m going to break: Picking off my nail polish. I can’t imagine how bad this is for my nails, let alone a complete waste of polish. But once I have a chip, I can’t stop! Argh.
A destination I’d like to visit: Austin.
I’m going to work harder at: Being more consistent with how often I work out and mixing up my routines.
A project I’d like to finish: I need to organize my shoes. The floor of my closet is frightening.
A class I’d like to take: Body Combat is the only Les Mills class I haven’t taken. The description sounds like cardio kickboxing, so I think it would be a great time. Who’s joining me for some punching and kicking action?
I’d like to spend more time: With my littlest brother. He and I are 12 years apart (!) but now that he’s a teenager, I feel like our bond is stronger than ever.
A food I want to eat more of: Like I said earlier, my focus lately is to eat more whole foods and less processed junk. I haven’t had any candy/sweets/dessert since Christmas!
I want to wear more: Blouses and booties.
Pick one of the above resolutions and answer below. I love hearing your answers! Or blog it and come back and tell me you did. 🙂 Good luck!
