Some quick and easy meals have been featured this week – mostly due to the fact that I have been working late and trying to get ahead of the curve before business traveling starts in another few weeks. With the new year, comes new responsibilities, and I will need to stay out in front of those, so I don’t get bogged down. That being said, I was wandering around whole foods without a plan and these looked pretty good. Reasonably priced, and apparently made in store. I served with sliced avocado and a quick garlic – lemon aioli, on a brioche roll. Would have added lettuce and tomato if I had them available. Would pair well with couscous or quinoa. I think the biggest thing is to make sure you have oil in your pan, and use a good seasoned cast iron to prevent sticking. Finish in oven, and then serve. It was pretty good – 4/5 stars. Very Healthy, easy to make, and a great go to weekday dinner.
