Steamed plaice rolls

So it has been a little while since my last post which is because I haven't been doing much of anything. My knee has been hurting the last few days so I decided to cut out the running until it gets better. Also due to some really bad food choices in the weekend I was not feeling good at all the first few days of the week. That just shows how important it is to eat the right things, and how badly your body reacts to a big cheat day/days.

But I was right back on track Monday just eating a bunch of my favorite dishes and not really trying anything new, so now I am feeling great again. I absolutely love fish and seafood so I had that for lunch and dinner today. Lunch was half an avocado filled with shrimp and sprinkled with wheat free soy sauce and lemon. So easy and very delicious.

For dinner (and lunch tomorrow) I made steamed plaice rolls with carrots, parsnip and leek and a side of baked green beans.
To make the fish dish (2-3 servings) you need:

250 g of plaice fillets (App 0.5 pound)
2-3 carrots
2 parsnips
1 leek
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1-2 dl vegetable broth (App 0.5-1 cup)
Thyme, salt and pepper

Cut the fillets in half down the middle, season them with salt and pepper and roll them into small rolls. Cut all the vegetables into sticks and fry them in a the olive oil in a large pan for 3-5minutes. Reduce to low heat, add the broth and the thyme and place the rolls on top of the vegetables. Let them steam under lid for 8-10 minutes or until the fish is tender. With food ike this who needs pasta!!!
