My Feast of Dedication Meal

Baked Red Snapper with Tarragon and Rosemary

Ingredients:

Whole Red Snapper (descaled)

Lemon

Fresh rosemary

Fresh tarragon

Garlic cloves chopped

Sea salt

Olive oil

Black pepper

Preheat oven 425 degrees. Score fish on both sides. Pour some olive oil in a small bowl. Chop some of the rosemary, tarragon and garlic and mix it in. Yes, your hands are going to be fishy! Rub the fish with sea salt and then the olive oil seasoning mix. Stuff fish with remaining herbs, lemon and garlic. Drizzle more lemon juice on top of the fish. Garnish with lemon slices and sprinkle black pepper on top. Bake for 55 mins or until tender.

I made yellow rice and sauteed spinach for the sides.

I got a store bought dessert because I did need to rest! Whew! It was pumpkin swirl cheesecake. With fish dinners, cheesecakes make a great light dessert to pair with it.

Roast Chicken

Now before I begin, keep in mind I have 3 growing boys so one roasted chicken will not cut it period. My boys have bottomless pits for stomachs so luckily H.E.B grocery store has those large chickens about 5-6 dollars a pop. A super good deal. This means leftovers and lunch with for me to pack for work.

Ingredients:

2 whole chickens

rosemary

oregano

juice from 1 large orange

sea salt

steak seasoning

garlic powder

4 cloves of garlic

2 large onions cut in large slices

4 carrots sliced in 1 inch

5 red potatoes sliced in 1 inch cubes

*Use a roasting pan for this recipe.

Preheat oven 450 degrees. Rinse off the chickens with water. Remove any giblets or organ meat stuff inside. I put mine in a Ziplock bag and in the freezer. I’m sure I’ll find some use for it.. a broth or something. Place chicken the roasting pan along with your sliced carrots and potatoes. Now slice your orange in half and squeeze over top chicken. Stuff the remaining half an orange inside each cavity. Stuff one garlic clove and a half an onion in each. The remaining onions sprinkle over the vegetables. The two remaining cloves slice and sprinkle over the chicken. Then season liberally with rosemary, oregano, steak seasoning, sea salt, and garlic powder. Roast covered for 2-2 1/2 hours depending on weight.

I was soooo hungry so I had a lot of meat its literally covering all my rice. 😭
