She Catches ‘Em, I Cook ‘Em!

Liz brought me some fish she caught, so I headed for the kitchen! – Scotty

So last weekend Liz & Will did some fishing at Bennett Spring State Park.

She brought some back for me, so I Googled up a recipe.

It’s an easy recipe and they turned out pretty good.  Not as good as frying them would’ve been, but I’m trying to be healthy over here!

The basic ingredients I used…

  • balsamic vinegar
  • maple syrup
  • lemon juice
  • red pepper flakes
  • green onions
  • the fish

I put some parchment on a sheet pan, and salt & peppered the fish.  Then I added some green onions.

Then I whisked together the balsamic, syrup, lemon juice and red pepper flakes.  The recipe calls for sriracha, but I don’t keep that in stock.  Then I just spooned the mixture over the fish.

Then into a 400 degree oven, the recipe says 8-11 minutes.  These were thin fillets so I took them out right at 8 minutes.  And then spooned a little more sauce on them.

I’m not gonna lie, I’d much rather have a battered up, deep fried piece of fish covered in jalapeno hush puppies…but this wasn’t bad.  Nothing earth shaking, but not bad!
