Confessions of a recipe hoarder..

Hello! My name is Michelle and I am a hoarder....

A recipe hoarder that is. I have books piled high, a pinterest board full of deliciousness and please tell me I'm not the only one who collects the recipes pages from newspapers and magazines. It's getting to be a bit ridiculous. 

In an effort to contain the collection a friend bought me a lovely old school photo album {you know the ones that have sticky pages with the transparent cover sheet} for my birthday about 2 years ago but as yet I have done nothing with it. Shame on me. My lovely kitchen table often looks something like this..

It wouldn't be so bad if I actually tried any of the recipes but alas they keep piling up and every week I have good intentions to start a fresh and try something different but it never happens. So with a long overdue kick up the back side I've decided to start sharing some recipes here. Just the incentive I need to bring new meals to our dinner routine.

First up is from an interesting article in the Metro paper here in Toronto about the benefits of adding turmeric to our diet. Studies have shown it to be very effective in preventing cancer and protecting the liver against disease. I'm not gonna re hash the article here as other much more informative people than I have done all the hard work already but if your interested you can check some of them out here and here
 
This recipe is super quick and easy, we teamed it with some stir fry veg as a side and thoroughly enjoyed it. I apologise for the picture. It doesn't do it any justice. Silly Iphone.
The original recipe was not gluten free so I have changed up the flour from the original recipe.


Pan Fried Turmeric Fish
 
1 egg
2 tbsp Turmeric
2 tbsp Gluten free flour
1/4 tsp Sea salt
1/4 tsp White pepper
1 lb White fish of your choice
1 tbsp Butter
1 tbsp Olive oil
 
Beat eggs with 1 tablespoon of water. Combine turmeric with flour, salt and pepper in a separate bowl. Dredge fish in egg and then into flour mix, turning to coat evenly.
Warm pan over medium-high heat, add butter and oil. Cook for 3 minutes on each side. Place on kitchen paper to absorb excess grease.
For the veggies, just a simple stir fry in olive oil and garlic.

 It's perfect for a light no fuss evening dinner. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
