Have you ever heard that Michael Pollan quote, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”? This is my mantra for eating. Tonight’s dinner is an awesome example. I bought monkfish at Whole Foods. Monkfish is sometimes called “the poor man’s lobster,” because it has a similar firm texture. My husband did our usual, olive oil, salt and pepper, and cooked it over a medium high flame on our gas grill. I made an avocado mango salsa–just for the 2 of us–with 1/2 an avocado, 1/2 a mango, 1/2 a small red onion, a small jalapeño with the seeds and membranes removed, some lime juice, and salt.
We served the fish with sweet potato, broccoli cooked in a foil packet on the grill in the same manner as the green beans from this post, padron peppers with olive oil and salt which my husband cooked in a cast iron skillet on the grill, and some cut up raw veggies. The only non-plant based food on the plate was the monkfish. Not the best picture I’ve taken, but it was all delicious!
