Spicy Cod with Peach Nectarine Salsa - FairfieldMoms

I am still trying to eat less red meat and eat more fish so this week will be a spicy salsa cod dish, chicken sausage and broccoli rabe and cilantro lime turkey meatballs. Making three dishes this week so we have leftovers and can add the meatballs to salads.

Hard boiled eggs for breakfast, my husband was getting sick of the frittata but I think he just didn’t like all the veggies I filled it with! I didn’t mind it especially with a little avocado on top! Green smoothies as well, added some wheat grass and broccoli sprouts this week, definitely tastes more earthy, but hey it is Earth Day! Earth week since we have the Beach Clean Up this Saturday!

Cilantro Lime Turkey Meatballs
Very simple and very tasty.

-2lb of ground turkey meat
-3 limes juiced
-chopped cilantro
-1 egg
-little salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 450. Mix all the ingredients together and form medium size meatballs. Baked 10 minutes on each side. This made two cookie trays on meatballs so we will have them all week. I will make a spaghetti squash and have them with squash and sauce one night. Leftovers from that and can heat them and add to salads for my lunches!

Chopped Sausage and Broccoli Rabe

Whole foods had this chopped Chicken Sausage with feta and spinach in the meat case and it sounded great, so I got that and added Broccoli rabe to it for another quick meal!


-1lb of ground chicken sausage (can do links and also doesn’t need to have the feta and spinach in it, I just never saw this kind before so wanted to give it a try!) If you buy the links just slice them up, thats what I normally use for this meal.
-2 packages of frozen broccoli rabe (I usually buy fresh and cut it up but WF was low on everything after a busy Easter weekend!)
-Olive Oil
-Salt and Pepper

Put the stove on medium and heat up some olive oil then added the chopped meat. Cooked that till all sides were brown and then added the broccoli rabe. Mixed it all together and added a little salt and pepper! Thats it!
