Ginger-Lime Swordfish (Wednesday) $8.17

ooo, more Jillian, this time from her website!  What better way to enjoy super healthy fish than with some vitamin and other nutrient packed sweet potatoes!  Barbara will blog like crazy about how healthy this whole meal is!!!  Meanwhile, I just rave about flavor and how inexpensive it is at the same time!!!

Ellie would declare it's the "Best of Both Worlds"!

Ginger-lime swordfish
2 tsp. grated lime rind (zest).05
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes).40
1/4 c. honey .30
2 Tbsp minced ginger root (peel ginger, then use garlic mincer),20
2 Tbsp mnced onion .15
1 Tbsp soy sauce .10
2 tsp minced garlic (2 cloves).49
4 swordfish steaks or other "thick" fillets of choice (3/4 in thick) $ 4.99
vegetable of choice .99
sweet potatoes(2) large .50
Total: $ 8.17

Preheat broiler
combine first 7 ingredients in small saucepan... heat to combine.
dip each steak into the lime mixture to coat
Place fish on broiling pan coated with cooking spray, sprinkle with fresh pepper, and broil 10 minutes or until the fish flakes when tested with a fork.

While fish cooks, reheat lime juice mixture over medium heat, cooking until reduced by half - about eight minutes.  Serve sauce with fish.

We're also featuring sweet potatoes, which you will scrub thoroughly, then microwave for about 7 - 10 minutes depending on your microwave's power.  You can either peel after cooking or serve with skins on and slice/scoop the flesh out while eating.  Don't eat the skins.  We prefer to microwave, peel, then slice.  I serve with a wonderful table seasoning salt blend from Aldi.

Lastly, we've suggested Vegetable Normandy, or other frozen veggie of choice.  Steam per directions on bag in the microwave while the potatoes are resting right before dinner is served - spritz with spray butter if your family says so.  Microwave steaming your vegetables is the best way to retain all the nutrients you can!  Fresh veggies will take about 4 minutes per pound.

I like my picture too, so I thought you might like to see another shot of how tantalizing this meal is ... Cooking is fun when you follow easy recipes for super nutritious foods!
