3-4 tilapia filets

1 lb asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces

garlic salt

chili powder

2-3 TBSP olive oil

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and cook for 3-4 minutes, then add fish, garlic salt and chili powder. Cook until fish is done, and serve promptly.

Tuesday: Slow-Cooked Duck with Vegetable Gravy

This is what I found at Costco:

Here’s the recipe:

One 3-lb duck

3 TBSP olive oil

1 large onion, chopped

2 cloves chopped garlic

2 large carrots, cut into chunks

1.5 tsp salt

3/4 tsp pepper

more salt and pepper to taste

1 cup water

Heat oil in  large skillet. Add carrots, onions, garlic 1.5 tsp salt and pepper. Cook until onions and carrots are beginning to tender. Pour into crockpot, set duck on top, and generously sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour 1 cup water into crockpot. Cook on low for 4-6 hours, then remove duck. Strain off duck fat (keep if you’d like to cook with it!):

With an immersion blender, blend the veggies until they are a puree:

Slice duck, and serve with veggie puree over it. Yum!


Wednesday: Baked Apple Meatballs

3 lbs ground beef

2 apples, peeled and grated

1 tsp red chili pepper flakes

2 tsp salt

1 tsp garlic powder

1 egg

Mix all ingredients and let sit for at least a 1/2 hour to absorb flavors. Preheat oven to 375, and line a broiler pan with foil. Roll meat mixture into balls about the size of tennis balls (a bit smaller), and place onto broiler pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until meat is no longer pink. Let cool for a few minutes before serving.

Thursday: Leftovers from previous days

Friday: Ginger-Garlic Cod

4 cod filets

1/4 cup coconut aminos

3/4 tsp fresh grated ginger

2 cloves minced garlic

1 tsp salt

3-4 TBSP olive or coconut oil

Place fish in large Ziploc bag. Add remaining ingredients (except oil) and toss gently to combine. Let marinate for at least a 1/2 hour. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Place fish in skillet and cook 4-5 minutes per side, until it flakes easily with fork. Remove and serve.

    Ohhhh, I like the blended veggie idea with the duck, might have to use that one! DH is a ‘gravy’ lover, and while I will occasionally use some rice flour to make gravy, I have been trying to move away from that as much as possible.

    Making the meatballs tonight! Any suggestions for sides. Is this an Italian or a Swedish type meat ball. Filling enough on its own?
