Chicken Fajitas

Pretty standard grill book fajitas.  Used chicken this time.  That's probably all to report here.  Except yum.

No-fuss Salmon Cakes and Gay Marriage

Whole 30, pg 346.  Not too bad, but it would have been better maybe with fresh sweet taters or something.  Or fresh salmon instead of canned.

Also, gay marriage is legal now so that's pretty sweet.

Cauliflower Rice with Kale Caesar and Chicken

I think this was the whole-30 cauliflower rice (pg 366).  Made a kale caesar with lemon to go with it.  And some rotisserie chicken.  Yum.  Yes, I said it.  Yum.

Grilled up some t-bone steaks plus rando veg.  Pretty good, but we used those steaks we had in the freezer and they were waaay to thin.  Ah well.

Chimichurri Kebabs

I think we did the chimichurri out of the whole 30 (pg 306), and then did some kebabs out of it.  Chicken probably, maybe some beef.  Zucchini, peppers, onions, mushrooms probably.  That sort of thing.

Coconut-Curry Chicken with Cauliflower Rice

Made the chicken as per the whole 30's recipe (pg 230).  That was fairly delicious.

Did the coconut cauliflower rice again as per this post:

I think this was pretty delicious.

Turkey Burgers

Describing them as just "turkey burgers" doesn't sound pretentious enough, so how about "Paleo Jalapeno Turkey Burgers?"

Probably basically followed the recipe.  They were pretty good.

Stuffed Peppers

Whole 30, pg 222.  I think we more or less followed the recipe.  Probably added more kale and squash to the burger.  And maybe used turkey burger.

They were pretty good though.  I think it made a lot.  Probably because we have a problem with not adding extra veg...

Perfect Grilled Shrimp

And they were pretty delicious.  Whole30, pg 158.  Used minced garlic as we didn't have garlic salt or garlic powder.  Yum.

Baked Halibut

Sort of followed this recipe:

Put some asparagus down over the spinach and before the halibut.  And used halibut fillets instead of steaks.

  • 4 cups spinach, packed
  • 2 11oz halibut steaks, about an inch thick
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sprinkle of smoked paprika
  • ½ lemon, sliced into 4
  • Half bunch of green onions, sliced
  • 1 red thai (birds eye) chili, deseeded, halved & sliced thinly
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbl coconut oil, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lay out two large squares of foil and divide the spinach between the two equally, placing it in the middle of each square.
  2. On a chopping board, lay out the halibut steaks. There is a membrane running down the middle of each steak, along with a small bone that need to be removed. Run a small knife between the flesh and the membrane, separating each side of the steak away from both membrane and bone. Each steak should now be divided into two separate pieces of fish, so that you have four pieces in total.
  3. Lay two pieces of halibut on top of each pile of spinach. Squeeze the lemon juice over the fillets, season to taste with smoked paprika and top each one with a slice of lemon.
  4. Divide the sliced green onions, thai chili and cherry tomatoes equally between the two squares. Divide thecoconut oil so that each piece of fish is topped with about ½ tbl oil.
  5. Wrap the foil around the fish tightly & place both packages on a baking tray.
  6. Bake for approximately 15 minutes, until fish is cooked through and flakes easily.
  7. Remove the fish from the packages (as well as the skin from the fish if you want) and plate, spooning the juices over the fillets before serving.

Shepherd's Pie

Whole30, pg 350.  Doubled it, but otherwise mostly followed the recipe.  Sweet potatoes, carrots, celery, onion (didn't double the onion), ground beef.  Turned out pretty well.
