We love fish. We were born and bread in the Great Lakes State, and my family owned a fishing lure business. I was exposed to it at a young age and learned to love it, well maybe not even learned, I just did. I know not everyone likes fish, I’m sorry…I would love to try and persuade you, but maybe another time.

More and more we are learning of the importance of eating clean foods, and when I say we, I mean society. I for some odd reason questioned at a young age why we didn’t just eat real food versus something that is 95% chemicals and dangerous. Any who, in Michigan a great and relatively inexpensive resource is our lakes, and in them a bountiful smorgasbord that we just need to cast out and take for our tables.

So besides the general breading and frying or baked, what can we do with these fish. Here is one of our favorite recipes for mild fish, your white or yellow fleshed fish.

Fish and Quinoa!!!

Depending on the size of the fish and the kind that you will be using will determine how many fillets you will in fact need.

One box Red Quinoa, it gives it the best coloration for plating.

One medium onion finely chopped

Two Tomatoes chopped

2 Ripe Avocados chopped and slightly smashed

Salsa of choice

Corn canned or freshly cut from the cob

Sweet or Jalapenos depending on taste and hot preference

1 Lime halved

1 Mango cut into small chunks, save any juice.

Cook Quinoa to the directions on the package

Saute fillets of fish in juice from half of the lime. Add water if needed to prevent sticking to the pan.

Plate Quinoa with fish directly on top. Add veggies and fruit to taste. Drizzle with lime juice and any mango juice you may have. This is also great served cold for a picnic or on a hot summer’s day. Hope you all enjoy!
