my favorite thing about trader joe’s, besides their prices, is their individually wrapped fish. it makes for a quick and simple weeknight meal for one. no need to buy a whole bag of frozen fish. and it’s not just plain fish. it’s a little bit more than that. i bought pacific flounder with crab meat stuffing, knowing that one day i will want to make a quick, simple and yet delicious meal. and tonight was that night.
i took the fish out of the freezer, removed it from it’s packaging and microwaved it for 3 1/2 minutes, rotated, and another 3 1/2 minutes, adding a small amount of butter on top to keep it moist. i prepared the asparagus while the fish was cooking. once the fish was done, i steamed (in the microwave!) the asparagus in water and covered with plastic wrap for 3 minutes. drain, salt, serve. i also added some pecorino romano on top of the asparagus.
yum yum 🙂
asparagus might be my favorite vegetable… no, i think it is. also i think this post should be dubbed “box-less microwaveable meal” since that’s all i used for cooking my food. i love my microwave.
