Halibut steaks, stuffed mushrooms and rice

Hey guys, this is my first post so I don't have pictures of the meals .. but starting with my next post, I'll have a full set of photos to show you the final product. 

  • 4 mushrooms about 1.5 inches in diameter 
  • 4oz ricotta cheese 
  • 3 small/medium tomatoes
  • fresh basil, rosemary and garlic 
  • 1.5 cups rice
  • 3/4 lb Halibut  

  • Mushrooms
    • cut off stems of mushrooms so that they can hold the cheese
    • add cheese to mixing bowl 
    • chop basil and 1 tomato and add to cheese, mix and fold together while adding a small pinch of salt 
    • spoon cheese/tomato/basil mixture into the mushroom cavity
    • carefully place finished  mushrooms onto baking dish
      • some of the cheese will overflow of the mushrooms during cooking so a casserole like dish is best
  • Fish
    • take fish and cut off the skin attached to it
    • cut fish in half
    • add tablespoon of lemon juice (optional)
    • place fish on baking dish
    • place cut rosemary, garlic and basil on top of the fish
    • cut remaining two tomatoes and scatter them on top and around the fish
  • Timing 
    • preheat the oven to 350
    • the fish goes it first, start timer for 25min
    • as soon as the fish go in cook your rice 
      • 1.5 cups of rice needs 2.25 cups of water
      • place in pot with lid
      • heat on med until water boils then turn heat on low
    • at the 20min mark the mushrooms will go in with the fish (on the same rack if possible)
    • when the timer goes off, you should be good to go!
Cost: $15 and $20 (depending on fish price)
