It is so nice to be cooking again! During our vacation I ate everything I could possibly want and it is great to get back to the clean, crisp flavors of my own kitchen. I have planned out the rest of this week with a vegan chickpea stew with ditalini and vegetables for Saturday and our usual BFD (Breakfast For Dinner) on Sunday. I even have next week’s menu ready and have been to the grocery store to re-stock.
Talapia gets a bum rap from the foodie community I think. It is an inexpensive, unobjectionable mild white fish which perks up with sauces or in a taco. John roasted it at 400F in the oven for about 12 minutes while I finished steaming the potatoes followed by the broccoli. The mustard sauce brought the whole plate together.
For the mustard sauce I mixed together a tablespoon each of Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, and light mayonnaise. (I like Maille brand mustards the best.) I thinned it out with a tablespoon or so of water. It goes well with the fish, the potatoes, and the broccoli!
