Mondays are the hardest day of the week for me. I wake up around 6, correct reports/ answer emails/blog while having breakfast, head to work aroud 8:30, deal with issues that came up over the weekend/ dictate reports/ organize classes for my students in the morning, eat a quick lunch and work at the out-patient clinic all afternoon. Then around 6:30, head back to the in-patient unit to check on the new patients with the residents. Usually don’t get home until 9pm, worn out and STARVING!!!!
That’s why mondays’ dinners need to be quick, easy and tasty! well… mostly quick. On this blog, these meals always end up in the “Quick recipes for the overworked gal” category! So if you want to eat healthy meals but are crunched for time, make sure to check this page first!
Today’s dinner was pretty awesome. I used frozen Mahi Mahi which I defrosted by placing it on the bottom shelf in the fridge last night. When I got home, I simply placed the 2 fillets in a baking dish, sprinkled with caribbean jerk seasonning and baked until fully cooked yet tender. On the side I used leftover Pico de Gallo from yesterday to which I added some diced pinapple. Also had pickled jalapeno, sliced avocado with balsamic glaze and a whole wheat tortilla for the hubby. I served the fish toped with sprouts.
It made me think of my favorite fish tacos from Magnolia Café in Austin, Tx. Ohhh Austin, I miss thee….
