E. has not yet tried eggplant, and I am not sure how I could have waited this long. It's one of my favorites. I picked up a great, firm one at the market with about 1.5 lbs of cod, which she's tried before. Certainly may not seem adventurous, but when you're 11 months, it's like fugo...almost.
Meal #1: Cod and Eggplant
- 1.5 lbs of cod filet, skinless
- 3 slivers of butter
- 1 peeled, cubed organic eggplant
- 1tsp vegetable oil
- 2tbsp water
- 4 tbsp whole milk organic yogurt
On a section of foil, place rinsed and dried cod. Salt lightly and place the butter slivers on top. Close off the foil on top and sides. Place on the grill ~300F for about 7 minutes (This can be done in the oven as well).
- Serve cod atop of eggplant (make sure both are cooled to eating temp)
- 1/4 tsp white miso paste
- 2 tbsp roughly chopped cilantro
- 1 clove of garlic
- a little salt
Add minced garlic and cilantro to the eggplant dish (add salt to taste if necessary). Mix the white miso paste with the butter sauce the fish was baked in - serve as finishing sauce for the cod.
No pictures today, but promise for next time.
