Go Fish

For awhile now Jordan has been encouraging me to cook more fish. For one he likes it, and also for the health benefits. I have been a little reluctant, not because I dislike fish, but because of the lack of good selection around here. Growing up in WA there was always a good selection of fresh fish because our location was so close to fresh water. I have decided to give up my prejudices and to cook fish once a week. Since I have a half day on Fridays I have decided Friday is the day for fish. After I get off work I stop by the grocery store and pick out whatever is wild caught and then go home and figure out what to do with it. So far I have done this for 2 weeks. The first week was wild caught Cod. It's a nice mild white flaky fish. I dipped it in an egg mixture then a seasoned flour mixture, it was quite tasty.

The next week I found some wild caught Sockeye Salmon. We love Salmon :). A little butter, lemon juice and herbs was all it needed. It was so delicious!

Next I want to make this Mahi Mahi recipe from a friends blog! I wasn't able to find fresh Mahi Mahi so I went with frozen, it says its wild caught but who really knows.
