Grilled Rockfish Salad

20 Jan

I wanted to show you yesterdays’ lunch, which was re-mixed leftovers from the night before’s fish tacos. Super simple–romaine lettuce, red bell pepper (which is sweeter than its green cousin), diced avocado, a little cheese, the leftover rockfish, some cucumber, and salsa as dressing. Really good.

Thinking of leftovers as more than boxes to be nuked up the next day helps break up the monotony when you have more of a dish than you can eat one night. This didn’t feel like leftovers. It felt like something entirely new. It was really tasty, filled me up, and had no trace of “tacos again!”. Which was awesome.

That’s not to say there wasn’t trouble. That came walking my daughter home from ballet last night, when she excitedly asked if there were more fish tacos for dinner. I confessed to having eaten all the fish, and caught heck for it. Who knew a 7-year-old would fall so hard in love with rockfish? 😉

This same salad works with chicken, leftover steak, leftover fish or shrimp, or just beans if you have some laying around. It was a happy lunch!

I’m still giving stuff away!

There’s a new button over there on the right (you’ll have to click through if you’re on email subscription, Kindle, or a blog reader–sorry!)? That’s for Playing With My Dinner’s brand-spanking new Facebook page, where our readers are already chatting, sharing ideas, and getting the inside scoop on the blog.

To celebrate its launch, I’m giving away a copy of Aviva Goldfarb’s newest cookbook, “SOS! The Six O’ Clock Scramble To The Rescue.” It’s all about making healthy, Earth-friendly meals your kids will love, and you’re going to love it.

One lucky reader will find a copy in his or her mailbox, and all you have to do to enter is “like” the blog over on Facebook before February 5. I’ll use a random number generator to pick our winner.

So c’mon over! Visit the page, hit that “like” button, and join in the conversation on the wall. See you there!!
