Cooking is my hobby, my passion, and my way to winning hearts because let’s face it, everyone loves to eat. Though I haven’t had any official training, I have dabbled in cooking classes and watched enough Food Network to wing owning cafeterias and a successful catering business. Since Sunday is the day that I am generally at home watching TV and writing travel stores, I use this time to try out new recipes and fine tune my cooking skills. If my family is around, they join me for my Sunday feast but if not, I may invite a friend over, share it with my dog, eat it all, or save the leftovers for later in the week.
Sunday Supper Series
The goal of my Sunday Supper series is for you to not be intimidated by cooking. Hard work and confidence is all that is necessary to make even the beginner cook shine. These are recipes that everyday people like you and I can make that will taste good, not break the bank, and are perfect for sharing. Give cooking a try and if at first, you don’t succeed, try and try again. Come join me and let’s cook!
Focus For Week One: Jazzing up a frozen food item
Baked Fish with Homemade Tartar Sauce & Coleslaw
I love a good piece of fish. Living in Florida, it is nice having access to fresh fish all year round, but everyone isn’t that fortunate. For this recipe, we are using store bought frozen fish, any kind you like. I chose Pan-Seared Teriyaki Sea Cuisine Salmon, but Beer-Battered Cod is my favorite. You can dress up any frozen fish by taking about 5 minutes to make homemade tartar sauce and of course, fish needs coleslaw as an accompaniment. Here we go, baked fish with tartar sauce and a few extra items.
Note: One of my Christmas gifts was the Kitchen-Aid convection oven. I absolutely love it! It takes about 2-3 minutes to preheat and saves time and energy with its size. Since my family uses the oven at least once a day, this was a perfect present for me.
- 16 oz. package shredded coleslaw
- 1/2 cup Duke’s mayo
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
- salt and pepper, to taste
Cole Slaw Instructions
In a bowl, stir together mayo, sugar, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Chop up the coleslaw mix a little finer if you like. Toss the coleslaw mix into the dressing and coat well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
***Slaw may need additional salt before serving, taste to see.
Tartar Sauce Ingredients:
- 1 cup mayo
- 2 tsp. sweet pickle relish
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- generous amount of salt & pepper
- 2 tsp. finely chopped onion
- 1/2 tsp. dill weed, crushed well between your fingers
Tartar Sauce Instructions:
Mix all ingredients well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
This Sunday Supper pairs well with a starch side dish. Here is a super quick one, plus the Macaroni & Cheese is almost always Buy-One-Get-One at my local Publix.
Jazzed Up Rotel Mac & Cheese
Heat package of macaroni & cheese on the stovetop. Add 1-2 oz. of butter, a splash of half & half (or whatever milk you have on hand), grated fresh cheese (I like Sharp Cheddar, maybe 1/3 of a cup), a generous amount of salt & pepper, and a drained can of Rotel Tomatoes.
