Air-Fried, Twice Cooked Potatoes
Simple Beef Stew
Tilapia with Fingerling Potatoes
As we all know, fish is good for our health, therefore I’ve been trying to make more dishes using fish. Unfortunately my husband is not a fish person…I take this back, he just likes halibut and now that I introduced him to other fish, he slowly, very slowly started to acquire the taste for it. Nevertheless, it is still a hard task for me, since one of the complaints is that they are too fishy…now, can you imagine fish smelling like meat or chicken? Then I sure would be very worried…
This is a very simple and yet fulfilling dish. It is totally gluten free and so tasty. We had a complete meal by combining 3 main ingredients: fish (protein), fingerling potatoes (carb) and spinach (veggie).
2 tilapia filet
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
12-16 fingerling potatoes
½ lb crimini mushroom, sliced
½ red onion, finely sliced
½ tablespoon dry parsley (or fresh if you have it handy)
½ tablespoon olive oil
1 bunch spinach
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
In a medium pot, add water and a pinch of salt, let it boil and add the potatoes. Cook the potatoes for approximately 10 to 12 minutes or until the potatoes start to become slightly soft. Drain and place in a bowl. Add the mushroom, onion, olive oil, parsley, salt and pepper to the potatoes. Toss gently and place in an oven safe tray. Place the potatoes with the mushroom in a 350F pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes.
In the meantime, prepare the tilapia and the spinach.
In a bowl pat dry the tilapia filet. Add garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Place the butter in a fry pan and add the tilapia. Pan fry both side evenly for approximately 5 minutes each side.
Sautée the spinach with olive oil, salt and pepper.
To assemble the plate, place the spinach in the center of the plate, layer the filet of tilapia gently on top of the spinach and place the fingerling potatoes around. Serve hot.

Chicken with Potato Salad
This salad is almost like a potato salad, with some modification. It is great for a picnic or even for a side dish for a backyard BBQ. Makes a hearty meal, with lots of protein in it.
1 chicken breast
4 hard boil eggs cut in small pieces
4 medium potatoes cooked
2 stalks celery finely chopped
20 black olives chopped
2 tablespoons relish
2/3 cup mayonnaise
4 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
Shred the chicken breast, after being cooked in water, salt, pepper and bay leaf.
Dice the carrot and boil for approximately 3 minutes, strain the water.
In a big bowl add all the ingredients above, mix gently and serve cold.
Make sure that all the ingredients are at room temperature before you mix them together.
If you like a little more “sweetness” on it, add some raisin on top of the salad, the combination of the flavor is just great. Make sure that you add just before serving, otherwise the dark color of the raisin will diffuse, darken the color of the salad.
