Cilantro Lime Fillets

Cooking the fillets in foil pretty much steams them and it is so very easy to do. This is a nice mild way to serve fish and I think the preparation would do just as well on meaty fish steaks such as tuna or swordfish.

4 4 oz. cod, tilapia or flounder fillets
¼ t pepper
1 ½ t oil
1 ½ t dried onion flakes
1 clove garlic, minced
¾ t ground cumin
2 T minced cilantro
1 lime peeled and thinly sliced
1 T margarine, melted

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place each fish fillet on a piece of aluminum foil and sprinkle with pepper. Heat oil and add onion flakes and garlic and cook 1 minute them add cumin and place the mix over the fish. Sprinkle fish with cilantro and add a few lime slices to each fillet. Fold the foil over securely so the fish can steam and place the packets on a baking dish and bake 35-40 minutes.

For instructions on folding, Reynold’s says:
For each foil packet, bring up the two sides of the foil and double fold with about 1-inch wide folds. Leave room for heat circulation inside the packet as the food cooks. Double fold each end to form the foil packet.

And the Scouts site has a nice diagram.

Turkey Stroganoff

Think Hamburger Helper without the hamburger 🙂 For the stroganoff flavoring and the noodles, I just used a box of Hamburger Helper Beef Stroganoff. But then I substituted turkey and added a few twists. This one is really super good !

395 calories per serving

1 lb. lean ground turkey
½ t pepper
½ t salt
1 t gravy master
1 t dehydrated onion flakes
3 ½ c water
1 package beef stroganoff sauce mix
3 c uncooked medium egg noodles
½ c sour cream
½ c canned peas
Parsley for garnish

Cook turkey in a hot skillet on medium high heat until it is no longer pink. Toward the end add 1 t of Gravy Master or Kitchen Bouquet so that the meat gets browner and more resembles ground beef. Mix in salt and pepper, onion flakes, water, sauce mix and noodles and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to medium low, cover and cook 8 minutes or until noodles are tender. Half way through, stir in the peas. Stir in sour cream and heat through on low heat. Garnish with parsley just before serving.
