Sunday Dinner

Halibut with Roasted Beets, Beet Greens and Dill-Orange Gremolata:

This was such an easy and awesome meal. Like the last uncommon-for-me ingredient I used (lentils), I found the whole roasted beet and beet green thing to be surprisingly delicious and satisfying, a great outcome considering I had been expecting not to like it much at all.
I had honestly been expecting Boy to hate this, but as it turns out he grew up eating beets and likes them as much as he likes any vegetable so he finished off the last stray slices from the roasting pan. I loved the beets as well, but went back for seconds on the greens which were deliciously chewy and a perfect little bit of bitter contrast to the other ingredients.
I followed the recipe as written using Mahi Mahi instead of Halibut and served everything with some steamed brown rice. So freakin' healthy you can probably see me glowing!
As you may know, I require a sauce so to finish the dish I made a little drizzle using the juice from the sacrificial zest orange, amped up with a spoonful of frozen orange juice concentrate and a few healthy tablespoons of butter swirled in off heat.
Everything is baked on one pan which is about as good as a three-part meal gets as far as I am concerned, and I'll look forward to making this again when we (hopefully) have fresh beets from our CSA box.
Happy Sunday!

I love roast beets! A great combo is to throw in some goat cheese with them, really tasty.
