Holiday Recovery Meal

The season of indulgence has begun. Whether it is too much onion dip at Sam Jones Holiday Christmas Party or just that general overstuffed feeling at Fusion on the Fly we have the recipe for the cure.

Seafood and Vegetables. Get some Tilapia, Salmon, or whatever fish you like and freeze in individual 4 ounce fillets. Buy a few ginger root and keep in the vegetable container of your frig. Stock some parchment paper in your pantry. Get a bag of frozen spinach and keep in the freezer and make sure you keep some garlic on hand. I am sure you have lemons or limes on hand for cocktails so you are ready to proceed.

Slice the ginger thinly and make a bed of it on a piece of parchment paper. Place the fish on top, sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with lemon or lime slices. You can add other seasonings or herbs if you like at this point. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and seal the edges of the parchment.

Bake 400 20 minutes.

The fish will be infused with ginger and citrus and you can serve it with some spinach sauteed with a bit of garlic. It's that easy, and you will feel better the next day when you have a bit too much of that delicious creamy brie and the office party.
