Baked Cream Dory and Cheesy Mashed Potato

bake fish recipe, easy baked fish recipes, healthy baked fish recipes

I've been sick or should I say not feeling okay this past few days.  I felt so weak and light headed.  Yes, again, I had my blood pressure shoot up since Saturday until Tuesday.  Guess what?  Some rashes just suddenly appeared on my face, chin, chest, back and arms last Tuesday and decided to see a doctor on Wednesday.

Officially, the doctor suggested to take a few days off from work and to observe if these rashes are signs of chicken pox.  Yeah!  I haven't got chicken pox in my childhood.  Thanks to my mom's endless vaccine schedules during my younger days.  Since Thursday night, I'm suffering from rashes and few scratching from there and there, luckily today, the itching and the appearance of rashes stopped.  It seemed that they are fading and some are starting to dry.  Good grace they are not chicken pox.  Maybe some sort of viral infection.  I'm still wondering how I got these things.

Since I don't want to just sit back and sleep, it would just make me feel more sick, I told to myself I have to do something.  Well, better cook something for lunch since my mom and dad had their own errands outside.  We had some Cream Dory fish fillet in the fridge for a week now and I got an idea inspired by one of the menu in my friend's wedding.  I just so happy that the ingredients are all available, except for the lemon which I bought the night before.

For our lunch, I decided to cook Baked Cream Dory Fillet with Cheesy Mashed Potato.  The cream dory is covered with cooked mashed potato.  Then, some pistachios are sprinkled over the mashed potato.  This is then layered with cream and cream cheese mixture.  Then, grated cheese and chopped parsley were sprinkled over and baked for 45 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.

2 to 3 pieces                        Cream Dory Fillet (about 1 package)

Squeeze out the juice of half a lemon.  This helps to remove the fishy smell of the cream dory.  Ofcourse, remove the lemon seeds.  We don't want that bitter taste on our food.  Set the fish aside and prepare the mashed potato.

Clean and boiled the potato until tender.  I decided not to remove the skin as there are nutrients in the skin.  Mashed it using the back of a fork

Add the butter while it's still hot.  Add a dash of powdered nutmeg and mix everything together.  The addition of nutmeg goes well with creamy mixture.

Add a tablespoon of milk.  I used evaporated milk, specifically the brand Alpine.  I find it really creamy compared with the other evaporated milk.

Popped in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.  Let it cool for 15 minutes.  We don't want that hot watery cream do we?  Just be patient until everything is set.
