I believe in full disclosure– this took longer than 30 minutes… But per by BF, so worth the trouble, his actual words were, “Thank you for taking your time in making dinner- it’s soooo good.” Awe!!!
Thank you Paleo Comforts Cook Book for making me a superstar chef in my home! Like always, if you need reminder about Metabolic Typing break down see end of post.
- toasted pecans chopped
- almond flour
- white wine
- lemon juice
- capers (rinsed)
- Italian parsley chopped
- 2 eggs
- sea salt
- potato medley
- Brussels sprouts
- virgin coconut oil
- cucumber (I used baby Persian)
- rice vinegar (Nagano)
Put it together:
This is the order in which I did the whole menu and it all was all ready at the same time… I must admit, I am pretty amazed at how it all came together! Whew!
First I roasted 1 cup whole pecans on a stainless-steel skillet. Just place the pecans on the pot and brown. Then placed it in my mini-Cuisinart blender and coarsely chopped.
Next, I cut the potatoes in quarters and Brussels sprouts in halves and put it in the same stainless-steel skillet where I put 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of chopped garlic and cook till all is slightly brown then added 1 cup of water and cover pan to cook. Finished when potatoes are easily punctured.
Next I placed in a big plate, 3/4 cup of almond flour with a little sea salt and pepper. On separate plates I whisked 2 eggs and placed the chopped pecans in another. Take trout, flesh side down (skin side up) and dip in flour, then dip in egg batter, then dip in pecans, and place pecan faced down on separate plate. Repeat steps.
Using a non-stick grill pan I melted a pat of butter and placed the fish pecan face down (skin side up) and cook for 5 minutes then carefully flip and cook skin side down till golden. Place fish in plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
As fish were cooking, I cut the watermelon in half, and scooped up little balls and placed in bowl. I cut up cucumbers in quarters and added to bowl. Splashed Nagano rice vinegar and put bowl in fridge.
Sauce: in grill pan where you cooked fish, put 1 pat of butter, 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 1/2 cup of wine, 1/4 cup capers, and chopped parsley stir and let the liquids emulsify. Then pour over fish.
Place watermelon and cucumber salad in watermelon bowl. Plate it all and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!
