Whole Roasted FishBy Jim BrownWe're roasting a whole fish! You'll want about 1 pound per person and you can ask the person behind the counter to scale it for you. I'm leaning toward Red Snapper or Branzino - but whatever is freshest. We'll saute asparagus while the fish roasts and we'll cook sweet potato strips in the air fryer.
Wok or Skillet Chicken Stir FryBy Jim BrownQuick cooking stir fry. Chicken, mushrooms, onions, ginger, jalapenos and your green veggie of choice. I'll be using asparagus for this one.
Shrimp Stir FryBy Jim BrownI love stir fry - it's quick, it's easy and it's delicious. I took the picture with shrimp and broccoli but good chance that I'll do Shrimp and Bok Choy on Sunday. The beauty of stir fry is that the meat and veggies are interchangable. Shrimp, Beef, Pork, Chicken, Broccoli, Snow Peas, Asparagus, Bok Choy, it all works. Just make sure that it's portioned into small enough pieces that it will cook quickly.
Fish Tacos with Collard Greens SlawBy Jim BrownAny fish will work for this one, but Mahi Mahi paired perfectly with the avocado crema, the collard green slaw and the corn tortillas. In keeping with reduced grocery store trips, feel free to experiment with substitutions. I made it the first time with pickled daikon radishes instead of jicama.

And since it's in the Instant Pot we'll add easy to the bargain. Enjoy and be safe!
Salmon in Parchment or en PapilloteBy Jim BrownWe're going to to cook salmon in a parchment packet or the proper French description - Salmon en Papillote. We'll add a little butter, some onion, bell pepper, lemon and a little fresh dill or thyme if you have it. Shelter in place meets fine dining...
