Tuesday meal series(On Thursday)

If you like fish like we do, then you likely eat it as least once or twice a week and are always looking for recipes.  I like this recipe.  It's a little bland but so low in calories, fat and sodium.
Goes great with Broccoli

Poached Fish

8 fish fillets, such as cod, sea bass, salmon or Tilapia(we use only 4-5)
1 teaspoon acceptable vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 small rib of celery, chopped
1 cup dry white wine or hot water(we usually use hot water)
2 tablespoons fress lemon juice
1 bay leaf
Pepper to taste
Sprigs of fresh parsley(optional)

Rinse the fish and pat dry with paper towels.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Pour the oil into the skillet and swirl to coat the bottom.  Cook the onion and celery for 2 to 3 minutes, or until soft.

Place the fish on top of the vegetables, or roll each fillet, securing it with a toothpick, and place the rolls on the vegetables.  Add the remaining ingredients except the parsley.  Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.  Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 8 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

To serve, carefully transfer fish to a platter.  Remove the toothpicks.  Sprinkle the parsley over the fish.

We enjoy this with Broccoli and a salad.  I usually eat more than one piece of fish.

5 miles on the schedule today.  This has been the week of struggle.  My 3 miler on Tuesday, I was still fairly sore.  No soreness today, of course, but still not feeling it.

I'll hopefully announce the winner of the Balega Socks tomorrow since when I went to pull the winner Rafflecopter was down.  Stay tuned.


Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
