Red Snapper and Veggie Quinoa


After my last post about the gross catfish I decided to throw away, a darling friend offered to give me some fish her dad catches from the ocean and freezes himself. So this fish here is Freshly frozen Red Snapper! And yes, it was super good! THIS is what fish is supposed to taste like!

I also had to make some Quinoa, of course. With sliced peppers, spinach, garlic, and onion. 

This was a great, healthy dinner!

Recipe:
2 Red Snapper fillets
1 Jalapeno
1 yellow or orange pepper
3/4 cup quinoa
1 cup vegetable broth
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbs olive oil
1/4 purple onion
1/2 tsp cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp pepper
1 lemon

Thaw fish in water. Pay dry and coat in some olive oil. Season with a little cajun seasoning, and pepper. Slice lemon and place in a sprayed baking dish. Place fillets on top of lemon. Bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily. You could also bake at a lower temp for just a few minutes longer.

Rinse quinoa, and add to 1 cup of veg broth. bring to a boil and then simmer for about 12 minutes. While that is simmering add garlic, onions, peppers, spinach and olive oil into a pan and sautee until onions are translucent and spinach in wilting. Add sauteed veggies to cooked quinoa. 

( I also steamed some frozen peas to add a little more veggies. )

You could use any mild white fish with the recipe, enjoy :)
