Lunch is often my favorite meal of the day because I don’t have to cater to anyone else’s picky palates. And I can cook something healthy and delicious. I live with a husband and two boys and it is impossible to please everyone. For lunch I only have to please myself.
So today I pulled one of my precious Arctic Char fillets out of the freezer. These fish are farmed in Iceland and are on deemed okay to eat by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch which keeps an eye on sustainable fishing practices. And they are delicious. A salmon flavor but milder and fattier. But fattier in that good way — lots of Omega 3 oils.
This entire meal fulfilled the requirements of the Weight Watchers Simply Filling Technique.
I sprayed a small pan with PAM, sprinkled the fillet with Mrs. Dash and sea salt. After the pan was very hot I seared this arctic char fillet on both sides and then turned down the heat and put a pan lid on top to let it finish cooking.
I peeled and diced two celeriac and two turnips and boiled them until tender and then pureed them with an immersion blender and mixed in some fat free plain Greek yogurt and garlic salt.
I steamed (in the microwave) some kale broccoli ( actually a variety of kale) that I’d blanched and frozen last week.
Then I put it all together and garnished with a dollop of fat free plain Greek yogurt.
