HARD BOILED EGGS & SEARED ASPARAGUS
Just wanted to pass along one of my latest lean and clean snack ideas! It’s very light and satisfying: 1-2 hard boiled eggs with 2-3 spears of seared asparagus.
EGGS: I swear by the boil and turn off the heat method for hard boiled eggs. Basically place the eggs (gently) in a pot. Fill the pot with enough water to just cover the eggs. Turn the heat to high. Bring to a rolling boil. Turn off the burner and let the covered pot sit for 10 full minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Run the eggs under cold water to help ease the peeling. Season with fresh cracked pepper.
ASPARAGUS: Trim the bottoms of the asparagus. Toss them with olive, some granulated garlic and sear on a medium-high heat. Give them a quick cook leaving the spears crisp and slightly browned.
This dish speaks for itself!
For the Fish
Preheat your oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the flounder fillets "skin side" down. Sprinkle with a little panko, grated pecorino, some lemon zest and just a dash of fresh cracked pink himalayan salt & pepper. Top it off with a drizzle of olive oil.
Bake for 10-15 mins. I took it out at 12 mins...so keep an eye on it!
For the Salad
I chose to combine frisée and radicchio. They both hold up well and have a bright and refreshing flavor. Toss your chopped lettuces with a little olive oil, lemon juice salt & pepper.
Let "marinate" while the fish cooks. You can obviously play around with the dressing, but do keep it on the lighter side.
Once the fish is cooked, plate immediately and top with the salad. Enjoy!
