Cod with Pineapple Salsa

Maybe you’ve noticed I like to make salsas? It’s true, I love to cover my proteins with some sauce, chutney, and salsa!  Sometimes a nice fresh topping is all you need to make the meal a little more exciting.  I like to dice up fruits and veggies and keep them raw. This adds a cold component to the meal which is nice since it’s already plenty hot here.  It also keeps all of the awesome nutrients and vitamins in the foods from breaking down.

Tonight I whipped up wild cod with pineapple salsa.  I served it with some brown rice and spinach and it was gobbled up in minutes.  Fresh salsas are quick and easy to prepare and you can make one out of just about any fruit or veggie.  I decided to add ginger and mint to tonight’s salsa.

Cod with Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple Salsa
1 cup pineapple, diced
½ cup red onion, diced
¼ cup fresh mint, chopped
1 tsp ginger, grated
juice from half a lemon

Mix all salsa ingredients together (see, it really is that easy).

3-4 cod filets
olive oil

Heat pan over medium heat.
Wash cod and pat dry.
Lightly rub with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until white throughout.

Top cod with salsa and serve!

Today was another crazy day for us- running errands, dance class, diaper prepping.  Aidric is still trying to get over a nasty ear infection so he wasn't in the best of moods.  I was feeling like I hadn’t accomplished much so my mom (bless her!) took Aidric with to Kota’s dance class so I could finish dinner and get some work done.  The kids came back in a stampede and were ready to eat!

Aidric was so hungry he needed two utensils!

 Now that everyone has full tummies it's time to get some rest- we all need it!
