"Good Mood Menu" Recipes

The following recipes are suggested as part of Ross' "Good Mood Menu"

Dredging and Pan Searing Fish For a Crisp Texture

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • 1/2 cup corn or rice flour (or wheat flour)
  • 2 tbsp herb blend of one of the following:
  • Italian seasonings
  • Curry powder
  • Mexican seasonings 
  • Spike 
  • Lemon-pepper blend
  • Mediterranean blend
  • Thai seasonings
  • salt and pepper
  • 8-10 ounces fish (serves 2)
  • 2 eggs, beaten and placed in a shallow dish 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, ghee or coconut oil

In a shallow bowl big enough to lay the fish flat, mix flour and dry herb mixture together, season with a little salt and pepper. Dip the fish in the egg to moisten.

(You can substitute egg with water or milk.) Dredge the fish pieces in the corn or rice flour coating. Set aside on a plate. In your skillet or saute pan, preheat oil for about 1 minute. Place fish in oil, let it crisp on both sides -- about 2-4 minutes each side.

If you are cooking sole or a similar thin fish or fillet, it will cook through on the stovetop (about 4 minutes each side.) If you are cooking hearty, thick fish, place the pan (with the fish still in it) in the preheated 375 degree oven and cook until done (about 10-15 minutes.)

Chunky Shrimp And Feta Salad

  •  2 tomatoes
  •  4 stalks celery
  •  1/2 red onion
  •  1 cucumber
  •  2 carrots
  •  4 oz crumbled feta cheese
  •  12 oz cooked salad shrimp

Cut all vegetables into large (1/2 inch to 3/4 inch) chunks. Mix with feta and shrimp. Use your favorite dressing. Makes 4 servings.
