Fishy Sunday

I love, love, love a good toasted bagel with cream cheese and lox. As of late, every time I see this combination on a menu I make sure that I order it. It is rather ironic because the first time I heard about this combo I was horrified. Fish for breakfast???? YAK! I was introduced to bagels and cream cheese in the US while hanging out with Jewish friends in high school.

J and I have been on a no carb diet since mid December. While we have been eating well, cooking at times is challenging because I have to keep things different and creative. This morning we made our own version of bagels with cream cheese and lox! We substituted the bagel with slices of cucumber and tomato. OHHH so simple but sooo good.

This is all you need to do: Slice some cucumbers and tomatoes. Sprinkle some salt, add cream cheese, some capers, and top with lox.


Our lunch was rather yummy too. We had pan fried sole with broccolini and shirazy salad with a little twist. we have been eating sole regularly lately. It is so light and good.

I generally flour the fish, to which I add salt, cayenne pepper, and oregano. J pan fried the broccolini with some olive oil, white wine, and garlic. Salad Shirazy is usually made with cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onion tossed with a fresh lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper dressing. I added some avocado since we had some.

Such yummy food and so simple!
