Does anyone have any recipes or ideas for cooking fish? I'd like to branch out a bit more with my cooking and I'd love to try to cook fish. I need easy/simple recipes though that are failry foolproof...I'm an excellent baker but a horrid cook!

Hey Carrie, be careful if that cold has moved into your chest - running may not be th best thing for you right now! And ouch on the fall. Did you do that thing where you look back to see what you tripped over so anyone who witnessed it doesn't think you're just a klutz? LOL

As for fish recipes, I've found a few!

Quick and Easy Fish Dinners from Cooking Light

And a few recipes from Clean Eating Magazine Site:

http://www.cleaneatingmag.com/Recipes/Recipe/Cajun-Catfish-Po-Boy-Cooling-Vegetable-Salad-.aspx

I use shrimp a LOT, and usually just saute it in some garlic, chili pepper flakes and olive oil. I also use Basa Fillets, and sometimes I'll just drizzle some olive oil or sesame oil, chopped up veggies, pop it into a folded piece of parchment paper and cook in the microwave.

Hi Carrie - I'm just now catching up on the journaling section of the board finally! Looks like you've gotten back in the swing of things with your running. I think it's great your friend wants you to do a 10K with her - hopefully your cough goes away so you can train for it. I did the same thing as you and kept a notepad in the kitchen all weekend and wrote down what I ate as I ate it. My problem was when I ate out... lol

I do cook chicken in the crockpot. I've done boneless breasts, chicks drumsticks and chicken thighs. I just dump whatever marinade/bbq sauce/spices on it and turn it on low for about 3-4 hours (my crockpot cooks fast)!

I should experiment with some fish recipes myself. I've been lazy about that and have pretty much lately just bought the frozen already seasoned ones that you bake.

I totally picked myself up and got right back into jogging and acted like nothing had happened.

Vanessa -

I'm going to give the chicken/crockpot thing a try this weekend. My crockpot cooks super hot also - I don't dare leave it going while I'm not home. I usually 1/2 the time a crockpot recipes calls for and even then sometimes it seems like the food is overdone!

I hear you on the eating out! It's just so hard to estimate calories when you don't have a good idea of exactly what you eating anyway!
