    Pan Roasting is how professional chefs cook all the time but how many of you have heard of this technique or pan roast at home? Before you start this recipe, we recommend you read some tips on Pan Roasting. It provides you with some great tips and suggestions to help understand how pan roasting works and why it is a popular cooking method with professional chefs.

    What you’ll need:

    • 3/4 cup dry white wine
    • 3 tablespoons chopped shallot
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, plus more as a garnish
    • Salt and Pepper (to taste)
    • 2 tablespoons canola oil
    • 2 filets of sea bass (approximately 8 oz. each)

    Instructions:

    1. Prepare all ingredients before starting. This way you’re not scrambling around chopping something while the rest of the meal is overcooking.
    2. Start by chopping the fresh dill and shallots
    3. Preheat your oven to 450°F.
    4. Boil wine, shallot and lemon juice in medium saucepan over high heat until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 6 minutes.
    5. Reduce heat to low & add butter 1 piece at a time, whisking until melted before adding more.
    6. Remove pan from heat and stir in fresh dill.
    7. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper.
    8. In an oven proof sauté (fry) pan, heat the canola oil until it’s so hot it’s about to smoke. Be careful around this hot oil!
    9. Season the filets with salt and pepper and add to the hot pan.
      For filets with skin: Start cooking filets skin side down for approximately 5 minutes until the skin is nice and crispy. Then, flip them over for 30 seconds, transfer them into a 450° oven and roast them for about 3-4 minutes.
      For skinless filets: Cook them on one side for about 5 to 6 minutes and flip them over for another 2 minutes before transferring to the oven for 3 to 4 minutes.
      **This method should result in plump, moist, and tender filets, but you may want to experiment with these times because there are so many variables that can go into any recipe. Type of pan, thickness of fish, stove’s btu’s, oven temperature, pan temperature, type of oil… All of these factors go into cooking times and cannot be accounted for in a recipe. Using your senses and experience are vital for any recipe to work. Tom Manno’s rule of thumb: For every inch of thickness, cook fish  for 10 minutes total at 425-450 degrees on the grill or in the oven.
    10. On warm plates (Try pre-heating them in the microwave for about 2 minutes), top the pan roasted filet with the Lemon Dill Sauce. Sprinkle a little of the extra chopped dill on top and serve with wild rice, green beans, and a wonderful, dry Italian white wine.

  • With 2013 around the corner, many people are already planning their life changing goals and resolutions…

    With 2013 around the corner, many people are already planning their life changing goals and resolutions. It’s not surprising that with the obesity statistics being so high that many New Years Resolutions include losing weight. The high count of empty carbs and sugars in a lot of gluten-free foods can mean weight problems for many of the gluten-free eating public. It can be difficult to find good replacements for favorite foods that carry the same benefits in nutrition as the gluten containing counterparts. The blog at glutenfreeworks.com offers many tips and tricks on managing a gluten free diet. No one really enjoys dieting, but it can be even more difficult when your diet is already restricted due to allergies, ethical choices, or medical reasons. Here are some tips for watching your waistline on a gluten-free diet:

    • Stop snacking! Instead, split your meals from three large ones into four or five smaller ones. The end result is that you are full all day and have no need to binge on snack foods.
    • Limit the amount of gluten-free substitutes that you buy. Put your powers to good use by having three days a week with no gluten-free substitutes. Try to look for the foods that use gluten-free whole grains rather than white rice flour.
    • Curb the Carb Cravings. One of the challenges of a gluten-free diet is that it can leave you wanting. It’s hard enough to restrict all of your eating, who really wants to fight those cravings to restrict their diet even more? Luckily for us, the L.A. Gluten Free Examiner has supplied a great article about curbing those carb cravings. Once that’s under control your will power will once again reign supreme.
    • Eat a healthy breakfast every day. Try a hot cereal like Quinoa Flakes or Cream of Rice Cereal. Another great breakfast is a smoothie made with coconut flour, fruit and yogurt.
    • Put your label reading to good use. While you are scanning to find out if what you are eating is gluten-free, keep an eye out for sugar and preservatives as well.
    • Focus on eating mostly whole foods. This includes meat, fruit, vegetables or beans. This can also help you save on the grocery budget and start saving for smaller clothes!
    • Make Friends with Your Sweet Tooth. We all know what happens when the sweet tooth is denied for too long. It takes over, possession-style and destroys everything you’ve worked hard to do. Make friends with your sweet tooth by offering some better options: keep sweet treats on hand to replace gluten-free substitutes that might work against you. Frozen bananas are super sweet and make a great dessert.
    • Get plenty of sleep. The body, gluten-free or otherwise, functions better when it is well rested. This also includes improved metabolism and digestion.
    • Exercise! There is no change in diet that will help you lose weight and keep it off without adding exercise.

    No matter what your weight loss goals are for the new year, these suggestions should help get you started on the path to success.
