Still trying to use up all my freezer/pantry items, I pulled together this meal with frozen fish fillets (1 cod 1 salmon) a box of straight pasta, a can of alfredo sauce, frozen veggies, crackers, and various spices. This is a good example of what I call "kitchen improv".
2 fish fillets, ~6 oz
1 cup crushed crackers
3 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 lb pasta
2 cups frozen veggies
1 can alfredo sauce
Step 1: Smash the crackers in a plastic bag & add spices. Coat the fish on both sides. Spray a frying pan and cook over medium heat about 10 minutes (to thoroughly thaw) then flip and cook another 10 minutes.
Step 2: In a large pot, boil a gallon or so of water. Once boiling, add the pasta and simmer 7-9 minutes, until al dente. Add the frozen veggies and boil another 2 minutes. Drain.
Step 3: Put the pasta back into the pot, add the alfredo sauce and stir well.
Very filling and lots of protein & Omega-3s. This is a good way to get your fish for the week without it seeming too 'fishy', which turns some people off. Even the salmon taste & smell wasn't terribly strong thanks to the alfredo flavor and crust.
