One of my favorite, healthy, quick, inexpensive meals, that is full of flavor, and so easy, anyone can do it. King Oscar Norwegian Sardines, Kalamata Olives, Hummus, Pita Flatbread, and Mini Cucumber. What do you enjoy that is quick, easy, and not needing any form of cooking?

Hungry Fish In A Pond

This is one cool catfish that I have always loved. It’s amazing that we house them in aquariums. Down in South America they are as common as channel or blue catfish in America.

Not to long ago, I posted a photo of the Pink-Necked Green Pigeon. It is a colorful bird. It’s aquatic rival is the Mandarin Fish. It has to be the most colorful fish around.

This photo was taken by unknown photographer.

After having a variety of species of fish over the years, I have learned to love and appreciate the guppy. Guppies are fairly easy to care for, colorful, and give birth to live young. A person who has guppies will never need to purchase fish again. You will be able to give people guppies, because they breed prolifically. They males are so active, one would think they produce their own Viagra. Laughs!

I saw this photo floating around on the internet, and I am not sure captured it, but it is fantastic! I have tried to take photos of my guppies, but their tails flutter like butterfly wings, and they constantly move about. This makes it almost impossible.

So here’s to guppies!

Tonight I cooked some lemon pepper steelhead trout. Steelhead trout has a flavor that is a bit milder than salmon but similar. I rub my fillets in olive oil and sprinkle lightly with sea salt and liberally with lemon pepper. I bake them at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

For couscous I chopped one onion, crushed six cloves of garlic, and melted 1/2 stick of butter to saute. After the onion and garlic  softened a bit, I added one pound of mushrooms and a 1/4 teaspoon of  Slap Ya Mama season.  http://www.slapyamama.com  Cook until mushrooms are softened a bit.

Once the mushrooms are softened, add 10 ounces of fresh bagged spinach, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.  Cook to slightly wilted, and set sautéed vegetables aside.

For couscous use two boxes of NearEast original flavor couscous. http://www.neareast.com Follow package instructions for cooking.

Once couscous is ready, blend with sautéed vegetables and enjoy!

For the couscous, cut recipe in half for two people or less, or you will be eating leftovers for days.
