This month for Cookbook Countdown #13 I have chosen to use The New American Heart Association Cookbook (8th Edition). The recipes that I have made for this week are Fish Fillets in Foil Packets with Curried Vegetables (p. 170) and Middle Eastern Brown Rice (p. 471).
Ingredient list: For the fish and vegetables - salmon, freshly ground pepper, green onions, thinly sliced red and yellow bell peppers, curry powder, white wine, lemon juice, olive oil (I used this instead of margarine which I never use); For the rice - olive oil, onion, celery, brown rice, water, chicken broth, raisins, orange zest, orange sections, and ground cloves.
To go with the flavors of the fish packet, I found this rice recipe in the book, and I'm very happy I did as it was such a nice "go with," complimenting the fish, veggies, and sauce just right. Mark is not the biggest rice fan, but he likes it if it has different seasonings and flavors, so this was a hit with him as well. The bits of veggies and fruits were really good, the taste of cloves gave mid-eastern flair Definitely worthy of a repeat.
To see what the others have cooked this month, click here. It is the policy on this blog not to publish recipes that are not mine, the people who publish recipes go to a lot of time, trouble, and expense to do so and I like to honor that by encouraging others to purchase the book or check it out from a lending library. Thank you for understanding. I do post the general ingredients for each recipe so perhaps you can have a go at it from that alone.
