Sauteed fish and spinach salad



This weekend we've spent at home just dozing off in front of TV, catching up with our interests. Last month was pretty busy so it was great to do almost nothing. I had an opportunity to read more about healthy living. Every day I'm telling myself, this is the day to start. But then 'bad ME' appears and makes me eat something that I shouldn't. But we've already bought juice machine, that is why every morning I'm enjoying a huge glass of fresh fruit juice ( I love green apple and carrot juice mix!) And this evening we had a really healthy dinner - sauteed fish and spinach garnished with roasted pine nuts, parsley and tomatoes. I've even made a healthy cauliflower soup, but about it tomorrow.

What we need:

1-2 pieces of your favourite fish fillet ( I used Turkish mezgit - a fish from cod family)
for spice mix:
salt and pepper to taste
a pinch of all spice
chilli pepper
2 cloves of garlic
coconut flakes
a piece of celery root
lemon zest
cumin

a big bag of spinach
50 gr of pine nut
2 cloves of garlic
tomatoes
1 lemon juice
some olive oil
parsley

What we have to do:

1. Clean the fish.
2. Mix all the spices and blend in a blender, add some oil. Brush the fish with spices and put in a pre-heated pan with some oil. Cover the pan with a lid and let the fish sautee in its own juice. It takes about 5-6 minutes.
3. Slice the garlic and fry it in a pan with some oil, then add pinenuts and 2/3 of spinach. Let it sautee by mixing. Season with salt and pepper.
4. In a serving plate put some fresh spinach leaves, add some fresh parsley, then place sauteed spinach and fish. Garnish with some tomatoes and sprinkle with some lemon juice. Enjoy!!!
