Home (hotel) cookin!

Since I’ve been here in Cincinnati, and after I found the Findlay market, I’ve been cooking fish in the apartment almost every night. The only drawback I suppose is that my apartment suite smells like fish!

This is a dish that I was cooking a lot while I was here. As per my wife’s recommendation, I cook the vegetables first, usually just putting a bit of water in the pot and covering it, and cooking on medium low heat. Tonight was broccoli, asparagus, and kale. I prepare the fish by simply putting salt and pepper on both sides. I like to let the pan warm up with a little bit of olive oil in it, then just pan fry the fish. When the fish is almost done I like to throw in little grape tomatoes that I’ve sliced in half because I like the flavor they add. Then the brown stuff you see on top of the fish is the parts of the fish that stick to the bottom of the pan. I like to scrape it off and put it on top for some flavor and a little bit of crunch. I top everything off with lemon and perhaps a bit more of my special Himalayan rock salt that I brought with me on tour.

Tasty. Healthy. Satisfying.

Today’s Lunch!

How about an avocado, basil pepper chicken sandwich on toasted Multi-grain bread with grape tomatoes, olive oil mayo, and pesto spread!

Delicious!

The chicken was precooked and flavored from Findlay Market. Got the hand made pesto spread there too!

Findlay Market is a farmer’s market type place, close to downtown Cinci, that’s open 6 days a week! It’s really great, with lots of local produce, meats, and on-site bakeries, spiceries, etc… It’s where I did the majority of my shopping here in Cinci.

I’m gonna miss you Findlay!
