Thanks for reading about the yummy kika give away and special thanks to those of you that followed the blog for a chance to win. There's still time to follow and get into the drawing. I let you know who won on Friday!!!
I found a new food. Central Market had a cooking demo and samples of barramundi. Barra what? I wasn't so sure but since I hadn't had dinner I grabbed a bite. I wanted to go back for seconds but my pride wouldn't let me. So I headed over to the fish counter and had them pack up a pound for me to take home. I grabbed all the ingredients the lady at the demo used to cook the fish. Here goes: the fish was coated in Colorado Spice Chang Mai Fish and Fowl http://shop.coloradospice.com/, pan fried for about 4 minutes on each side in oil, then finished with a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkling of fresh basil. I made it for our family Sunday afternoon. We all ate it up with the exception of 2 of 3, the 2 year old, who had a bite and then licked the next but just couldn't muster up the resolve to swallow it again. Not to fear, 1 of 3 gobbled up 2 of 3's fish before the rest of us had the chance. Served it with butternut squash and kale. I will admit I was hungry in about an hour. I always am after eating fish. I was wishing I had purchased more than a pound of the barramundi.
The best part of this new food: Dr. Oz has named it the number one super food on a 2010 list.
"#1 Superfood – Barramundi
... #1 superfood – Barramundi fish. If fish were humans, Dan Buettner said that barramundis would be the vegetarian tree huggers. Barramundi only eat plankton, so they are high in omega 3’s, which is good for your brain and your heart, but they are not high in mercury like other fish because they don’t eat other fish." http://www.drozfans.com/dr-ozs-advice/dr-oz-5-superfoods-you-must-eat-with-dan-buettner/
