Todays lunch

A big kale salad and oven baked talapia

Ingredients :

- fish of your choice (salmon, talapia, sole, haddock, etc)
- salt and pepper to taste
- dill weed (fresh of dried)
- lemon juice
- and chili powder (optional)
- olive oil


1. Start preheating your oven to 375F while you get a piece of aluminum foil to create a little tent.

2. Place your fish in the center of the foil and lightly drizzle with olive oil and lemon. Season your fish to your taste with mentioned spices

3. wrap the foil around the fish creating a "tent" and seal all the edges as to not let the steam that will be created out.

4. Put it in the oven for 25 mins or so. Once you start smelling it then wait an additional 10 mins.

5. Open carefully!! The steam will all come out and its hot as hell...

6. Enjoy! :)

    Kale Salad


    - Kale (Washed, dried and cut into strips)
    - Raisins
    - Pine Nuts
    - Olive Oil
    - Fresh Lemon
    - Chili Flakes
    - Parmesan Cheese
    - Salt & Pepper


    1. Toast pine nuts and raisins in a bit of olive oil over medium heat.
    2. Combine all ingredients to taste. If you like more lemon, add more lemon. If you like it spicier, add more chili flakes..
    3. Toss until well coated
    4. Allow to sit for about 10-15 minutes so that the lemon and oil can penetrate the leaves. This step really helps to eliminate the bitterness that kale can have.
    5. Plate, and top with shaved Parmesan

    *Mina's Notes/Suggestions*
    - Don't include the stems as they're gross and bitter!
