Hi I’m Jason Bangerter and welcome. Today, I’m going to share a few different recipes with you that are perfect health mitts for those long cold winter days. Not only is this dish simple, easy to make, and full of flavor, they’re also full of fiber which is going to help us fight off fatigue and keep those winter blues at bay. Herb crusted halibut. Simple classic, easy to prepare. I’ve got small piece of halibut, I’m also going to use some scallops, any fish works well here, you can use salmon, you can even use tuna. Whatever you can get at the grocery store, your favorite fish, wait until you see how easy this is. Then the next thing you do is just take that fish, put it onto your prepared tray with little parchment paper and press that crust right in there. The only fat that’s been added is a little bit of butter. If you don’t want to use butter, you can use olive oil. We’re going to bake this in the oven depending on the size of the fish for about 6 to 10 minutes. When that comes out, we’ll have a nice salad prepared and we’ll be ready to go. Now to finish this lovely herb crusted halibut, then right on this salad. Olives, tomatoes, aged vinegar, olive oil, that’s a winner. Pan au chocolat. One of my favorite treats. To get started what we’re going to do is take the croissant. I always have some French baguette that I’ve chopped up and I’m just going to chop this into a one inch dice and pop it into a bowl here and next for the chocolate. What you can do is you can buy chocolate bars and chop them down into little pieces. This chocolate goes right into the bread and here I already have some milk chocolate done and what we’re going to do with this is take a little bit of melted butter, pour it over the top and we’re just going to mix that up, the butter is going to coat all the bread, the chocolate is starting to melt a little tiny bit. You can smell that nice spice. We’ll put that off to the side. Now for the royale. Split a vanilla bean and scrape the seeds into a clean mixing bowl. Add eggs, sugar, a touch of sea salt and the cream. Add 8 ounces of this crème mixture to your bread mixture. Put this mixture a little bit at a time into individual muffin tins or a casserole dish. And then from there, all brown buds, pour the remaining cream royale over the pudding just to reach the rim of the dish and go into the oven. Alright, look at that. Finish this off with a little icing sugar and I think you’d be hard pressed to find someone who’s not going to enjoy a spoonful of this. These recipes are so simple and delicious, anyone can make them and they’re a great way to fit fiber into your day. For these and other recipe ideas, visit - -.ca.
