Note to self….


….always look on the inside, outside, front, and back of food packages. You just might find a great recipe! That’s exactly the case for tonight’s dinner.

To be honest, I had no intention of doing another post today, but after finding this recipe, I had to share!

Broiled Sesame Cod


1 1/2 lbs cod fillets
1 tsp butter or margarine, melted
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp dried tarragon
1/4 tsp salt
Pinch of ground black pepper
1 tbsp sesame seeds


Preheat broiler. Line broiler pan with foil.

Arrange cod on prepared broiler pan.

Mix together the butter, lemon juice, tarragon, salt, and pepper.

Brush over cod. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Broil until fish flakes easily, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.

Along with the fish, I served some shredded zucchini. I had a bunch I needed to use. This recipe is a combination of two different recipes I found online. Below is what I came up with!

Shredded Zucchini Sauté


2 tbsp olive oil
4 large zucchini, shredded in food processor
2 large garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 cup fat free half&half
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup chives, finely chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste


Once the zucchini is shredded, toss with salt (about 2 tsp) in a colander and let it drain in the sink for 1 hour.

Rinse the zucchini very, very thoroughly. Drain on a tea towel or paper towels to get rid of as much moisture as possible.

Heat olive oil in large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and zucchini and sauté about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, heat half&half over medium-low heat until warm.

Add lemon juice to half&half, stirring vigorously, making sure the half&half does not curdle.

Once the zucchini is cooked, pour half&half mixture over along with salt and pepper to taste. Add chives. Stir to combine. Serve immediately.

After eating, my husband said, “This is really good! Don’t forget these recipes!”
