Slow-Roasted Cod with Avocado Salsa Verde and Pomegranate

I am beyond excited to jump back on the healthy eating and exercise bus of 2018! As we all know, the holidays just bustle with comforting, rich, heavy foods and it’s just tough to avoid it and keep that holiday cheer haha. The new year brings new goals, accomplishments and challenges. When I heard that Bobby Flay was releasing a healthy cookbook, I just jumped on my Amazon app stat! He is the king of bold flavors so I knew I couldn’t lose with his amazing recipes. This is the first recipe I’ve tried from Bobby Flay Fit and my husband and I were absolutely satisfied with the result. It’s definitely a different take on cod that I’ve never tried before, and the pomegranate seeds were a unique addition! They added a nice pop and slightly sweet contrast to the spice and acidity. Just made a few minor tweaks (used olive oil instead of canola and didn’t use salt to season the avocado salsa verde) but other than that perfecto! Not only is it fresh and delicious, but it’s so simple and quick to throw together. Buy this book ASAP!!!

Grilled Citrus Herb Halibut with Tomato Butter and Smashed Sweet Potato

This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. I came across the original recipe in Food & Wine magazine and just fell in love. It’s very light already, but I made a few alterations to make it even healthier. The combination of the citrus flavor with the tarragon is just divine, and that tomato butter just takes it over the top…plus it’s pretty easy. You’ll want to marinate for 2 hours so remember to prepare ahead! This bright dish is perfect for the spring and summer seasons!
