Miso Glazed Trout

Thia recipe is a recent addition to my list for my weekly clients, it has been very well received. It has been converted to a healthier version to create a more alkaline based dish,without compromising the flavor. I hope you enjoy it!

2 rainbow trout fillets
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp miso (any kind)
1/2 tbsp braggs (omit if you are watching your salt intake)
1 tbsp fresh ground ginger
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp red chili flakes

1/4 cup green onions
1 tbsp black and white sesame seeds

Whisk together lemon,miso, braggs, ginger, oil and chili flakes. in a baking dish brush fish with mixture and let marinate on the counter for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 25 minutes.

Have a 3 oz glass of whatever wine you are serving, I recommend Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc.

When removing this from the dish if you can get your spatula under the lip of the skin, you should be able to remove the skin completely leaving it in the pan while also leaving the meat intact. (you might not accomplish this the first time but keep trying soon its a cinch!!).

Garnish with fresh spring onions and sesame seeds.

This is really good served with a buckwheat or soba noodle and some Gai lan.

Luscious Gluten Free Date & Pecan Scones

1 cup almond yogurt
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 cups brown rice flour
1/3 cup tapioca flour
2/3 cup potato starch (not flour)
3/4 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 organic fine cane sugar
2 tbsp double acting baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped mejool dates 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with a silpat. Whisk together the milk yogurt and lemon juice. In a separate bowl mix all of the dry ingredients. Make a well and add the wet ingredients along with the olive oil but don't over mix. Lightly flour a board using brown rice flour, sprinkling the dough and your hands as well. Turn out dough sprinkling rice flour as needed (you should be able to shape this dough without it sticking to your hands). Divide the dough in half forming 2 disks and cut them into wedges. Transfer them to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden.

Remove from rack and allow to cool while sampling one for yourself.( I often do this standing over the oven!). Enjoy with earth balance spread or some organic butter. These are amazing toasted and can be frozen for up to 6 weeks.

Mayan fish Tacos with avacado lime yogurt, fresh salsa and a trip to Mexico

This recipe was inspired by a trip Michael and i took last winter to Tulum Mexico.We stayed in a little cabana on the beach that had electricity for only a few hours a day. In 1988 hurricane Gilbert blew through Tulum taking with it all the power lines. Not yet able to rebuild,most of the peninsula is run by generator. We loved this and never once missed the luxury we so take for granted back home, so much so that even when we had the choice we opted for candles.

This is where we had our  first meal, you guessed it fish tacos..... not a bad view hey.

 We drove down the coast and stopped at a place called Diamante k, which I had been to a previous year for a wedding and had a sea side lunch.
The first bite

Since then I have been dreaming about fish tacos.... so I decided to come up with my own version, these are best made with ezekiel sprouted grain corn tortillas, just corn, the smaller size ones.

Here is the recipe.


1 lb flaky white fish (sustainable and clean)
2 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic minced
1 1/2 ancho or guajillo chili
1 tbsp fresh  oregano
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno seeded and chopped
1/2 tsp himilayan sea salt
1 pk of ezekiel sprouted corn tortillas
Fresh limes for garnish.

In a stainless steel bowl add olive oil, lime, ancho chili, oregano, salt cumin, cilantro,garlic and jalapeno. mix well. In a baking dish pour the marinade over the fish, tossing to coat and let stand for 30 minutes.

Make avocado yogurt and  fresh tomato salsa, chill until fish is ready. The yogurt was first made with chipotle and lime but we found that it took away from the spices in the fish so we decided to use avocado instead. 

Fresh tomato salsa

1/4 cup red onion
3 roma tomatoes

2 tbsp lemon
1 clove of garlic minced

1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp himilayan sea salt

Dice all ingredients roughly add lemon, garlic and salt.

Lime avocado yogurt

1/2 an avocado
1/2 cup yogurt
1 tbsp fresh lime juice

Process until smooth.

Over medium heat place fish and marinade in a non stick pan. Saute fish for 3 minutes, flip and cook for another 3 minutes, marinade should be softly simmering. when fish can be flaked apart with a fork remove from heat and flake into a bowl with all or some of the juices in the pan. cover until ready to use.

Heat up tortillas four at a time for 60 seconds under a slightly moist cloth napkin and keep them covered until you are ready to use each one, do this last.

 One a time so they don't get soggy add fish, salsa, yogurt and a squeeze of fresh lime to the middle of a heated tortilla shell. Roll up gently and enjoy with a glass of pinot grigio.

Warning: best eaten with short sleeves as the juices tend to run down the arms a little.

Our last night in Tulum we were surprised by a full moon, the view was just breath taking here is a photo that barely does it justice...it was magic. 

Hope you enjoy these, we sure did...but if you really want to have the full experience, get yourself to Mexico Pronto! Buenos noches.
