Baked Fish with Mashed Cauliflower


I love fish and some weeks, can’t get enough of it.   Last week I wanted to make something light and easy for dinner.  I came home looked at what I had in the good old refrigerator/freezer and found some fish, cauliflower and cheese…and here is what I came up with.

Baked Fish

1/2 a packet of the instant mashed potatoes (from Trader Joe’s…garlic flavor)

3 fillets of fish (any white flaky fish) about 1-2 lbs

1 teaspoon of olive oil

Mix half the uncooked potato flakes with half a packet of seasoning

Lightly oil fish and coat one side of fish in the potato flakes.

Place on a foil lined baking sheet

Season lightly with salt and pepper

Bake in oven for 8 minutes

Turn oven to broil.

Broil fish until browned and lightly crispy on top.

Mashed Cauliflower

1 large head of cauliflower

1/8 cup milk (cream or what ever you like to use)

1/4 cup of shredded cheese

1 tablespoon chives (chopped finely)

Bring a pot of water to boil and add cauliflower, season water with salt.

Boil for about 8 minutes, drain well

Return cauliflower to warm pan to dry up remaining liquid

Mash cauliflower, season with salt and pepper

Add milk and continue to mash until smooth.

Add in cheese and chives

Serve warm
