When meeting with one of my favorite Clients 2 weeks, we got to talking about her Pescatarian lifestyle. I was intrigued and after reading numerous articles, learning all of the health benefits, I decided I would try it for 1-month. It’s been 2 weeks and I can honestly say it has been a breeze. As someone who loves seafood and was raised on tofu, protein packed meals haven’t been a challenge. (Of course, with proper meal planning)
Meat lovers, not to fret. I’m a lover of food and like I said, I would try it for 1-month.
This past Sunday was a beautiful one in Chicago which I spent in the park, reading my favorite cooking magazine Cooking Light. The April issue featured 40 meals under 40 including one for Pan-Grilled Chicken with Chorizo Confetti. My revised baked Mahi Mahi version is served with soy chorizo.
Entertaining Tip: Baked is always better than pan searing, grilling, frying etc. when entertaining. Not only is it a healthy alternative but less time in the kitchen means more time with your guests.
Now I know what you’re thinking. Soy Chorizo. Gross. I had my girlfriend Frankie over for dinner and only told her it was soy AFTER her first bite. The Trader Joe’s stuff is seriously to die for. For my version of chorizo confetti I also omitted the carrots and instead added more fresh peppers. Vegetable stock completes this Pescatarian meal.
