Fish Day

It was a fish themed day today. I started the day at the beach. My favorite place on earth. Went to sushi for lunch (well sashimi 'cause you guys know I don't do rice) and ended the day with this super easy, super yummy dish...

Shelly's Salsa Fish Packet

1 fillet of Halibut (any firmer white fish will do: Cod, Tilapia, Orange Roughy)
1-2 Summer Squash, chopped
a generous dollop (enough to cover fish) of Fresh Salsa or Pico de Gallo (the kind you have to keep refrigerated at all times)
2 cloves of Garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
a wedge of Lime
2 Tablespoons White Wine
Aluminum foil

Ingredients listed are for one packet multiply it for how many packets you are making. Place all ingredients in center of a piece of heavy duty foil (if you are using the $1 store stuff double it) Fold the foil over and seal each packet.

BBQ 15 minutes in covered grill. Open packets carefully steam burns are not fun. You can eat it as is (what I do) or for those that want some added carbs or for the non-ops in your household you can serve with warm corn tortillas for making tacos.

Serve with Shelly's Cilantro Yogurt Sauce

3 oz. Fage Greek Yogurt
2 Tablespoons Cilantro Dressing (Litehouse, El Toritos, Fresh & Easy, etc.)
dash of Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper

Mix together. Refrigerate till use.

Highlights of the day:

* Went to the beach with Jeremy today. Very nice. Always clears my head. Refreshes me. I wish the feeling would last. I think I just need to move closer.

* The weather is changing. We are supposed to have some huge rain storm. Gives me an excuse to curl up in a fuzzy sweater on the couch.

* My friend Janet just emailed me a couple of cool pics from the LA Event. I always bring a camera and never take a picture. Some blogger I am huh?! Well luckily I have cool pals that will recreate my weekend for me.

Hi I was just wondering if you could put on your quick tips how to find the amount of protein, fat, carbs, etc. in your recipes.

Hi Shelly
I made one of your 5 minute cakes, it was great moist and tasty.

Hey Mary,

Go to and enter your ingredients in a new day, add the totals and divide by the # of servings you get. That's what I do but you know change one ingredient and the #'s are off so I leave that up to you guys.

how long would you cook this in the oven?

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Same time. Hot oven though maybe 425-ish.
