It's Friday. Besides the fact that it signals the start of the weekend, it may also mean the time to avoid meet. Now people opt for eating fish instead of meat for a number of reasons, from religious ones (yes, it's the Lenten season), to dietary reasons (3 ounces of orange roughy equals 89 calories compared to 3 ounces of lean steak, 159 calories), to a commitment to starting to eat lower on the food chain (complicated issue here, if you are looking at environmental issues, beef vs. fish).
But how to eat fish? Fish and chips? Fried fish sandwich? Grilled fish? Baked fish?
Lots of ways to prepare it, but here is a way that is both really tasty, and not heavy of fat. The fish for this dish is tuna.
Here's chef Ashley Simone's version of Nicoise Salad.
Why not try this? The recipe is not too complicated. Check it out from a previous blog post.
A little aside: the recipe calls for pesto coated potatoes and haricort verts (green beans). To make this a little easier, you can use store-bought pesto for this step.
Try this dinner salad. It's delicious. Combine a fresh baguette with this and your tummy will be very happy. And your taste buds . . . well, you try it and let us know.
