Cooking with Dice Part 2

25386_zoom1I get to travel and spend time with friends and family a lot over the summer and this time I rolled the dice with my sister and her boyfriend.  We rolled a list of ingredients that pair extremely well together.  I was just thrilled to get to use the grill which in my three night trip to Ohio I grilled every night.  Here are the results….

Fish

Green Beans

Grilled

Oregano

Rice

Lemon

We ended up grilling two different types of fish (the mahi mahi is not pictured) and paired it with grilled zucchini, a whole grain rice mom luckily had in the cupboard, and of course green beans.

TIP: I was thrilled to get both lemons and fish as I read that placing fish on top of lemon slices while grilling enables the fish to cook through without it sticking to the grill.

I also tend to caramelize onions when I know I will be cooking for several people as they can be used with anything from meats to a salad topper.  In this case we added them to the snapped and blanched green beans and of course added lemon and oregano because those were our special ingredients.

This was a simple meal but a lot of fun to make thanks to my foodie dice (holla cousin Amy:)

Next post is everything Ohio! and there was a LOT of cooking to be had there!
