Haddock Po` Boys

Two Feet:


and finally what the weather guy REALLY meant this morning


Lucky for us, we didn’t get that 2’ of snow and hopefully we won’t get it until after the holidays.   Some parts of New York DID get it or WILL get it before the end of the week.  I’m not ready to face the challenges that snow covered roads bring on foot or on wheels. 

This morning, with thoughts of slippery sidewalks, I took the dogs on a 3 mile run. To my surprise and even though it was cold enough, there was very little ice.  It did start snowing  and blowing something wicked on our run back home.  It was only a 3 miler so I was ready to endure any challenge for 30 minutes.   We did ok. Felt ok.  Jogged along at an easy pace ok. It was an OK morning.   Now, just have to hope the rest of this cold, wintery week works out the same.

You can use your favorite white fish such as cod or catfish or event tilapia in this recipe.


Serves 4

  • 1 large food storage bag
  • 1 1/2 lbs. of haddock – about 4 small fillets

  • 1 TBS fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 4 whole wheat hoagie rolls, split and toasted
  • 1 cup of broccoli slaw:  Mix 1 TBS light mayonnaise, 1 tsp mustard, 1 tsp red wine vinegar, juice of 1 lime, salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl.  Mix 1 green onion (chopped) with the broccoli slaw then stir in the mayonnaise mixture. Set aside ready to serve.
  • 8 thin tomato slices

Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with the 2 TBS of olive oil.

In the food storage bag, add the flour, thyme leaves, salt and pepper and shake.  Add the fish fillets and toss in the bag to coat.  Remove to the prepared baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes.

Serve with broccoli slaw and tomato slices (on top of fresh salad greens if you wish).

    When I watched the news last night I went to look up Utica on the map to see if you were in the direct line of fire. Can you even imagine? Holy cow. My mom was born and raised in Elmira so anytime we hear about NY happenings, it’s kind of fun. Hopefully it all winds down pretty soon. This is crazy weather for so soon in the season. Maybe that means it will ALL melt and be warm on March 1st?

    Wishful thinking…?

      Alison – my wishful thinking is a winter with 2 snow falls only and those would be on Christmas eve and Christmas Day. BUT…that’s an impossibility and it sure would tick off the skiers.
