Happy Friday!! Whoo hooo….oh wait, I have to work tonight, so not so Happy Friday for me.
Nothing like working a Friday night shift after being up with the kids since 5am, and not going to bed until….let’s see…..28 hours later. Yea, fun times. And if you think that’s fun, then I get to sleep 4 hours, be up for the rest of the day and get up at 5am on Sunday for a long run. Seriously, my body hates me. I am so over the flip flopping it’s not even funny.
Shoot, my great recipe post is now turning into a rant and a “whoa is me” pity party…I digress. Let’s get to the good stuff…the FOOD!!
I’ve been using the Runner’s World Cookbook (affiliate link) and have been super impressed so far. If you don’t have it you really need to go out and buy it. So many great recipes, including this one.
I love pomegranate. Anyone else?
It’s so damn hard to get those perils out though, don’t you think? There are so many techniques of getting those suckers out...pounding them with a spoon, putting it in a bowl of water and then THIS…by far the easiest in my opinion. I actually use this method and it’s worked like a charm! Give it a shot if you get a chance!
Anyway, this could be one of my new favorite recipes. Super easy, pretty healthy with the exception of the extra sugar from the syrup, but OMG is it good. If you are into the whole sweet/savory thing, then this is for you! I bring you Pomegranate Tilapia with Brussel Sprouts! This is tagged as a low cal, gluten free, recovery meal!
- 2 Tilapia fillets or other white fish (cod, sablefish)

- 12 oz brussel sprouts, halved
- 1 TBSP coconut oil or olive oil

- In a saucepan over high heat, combine pomegranate juice, sugar and vinegar.
- Bring to a boil then turn down heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes until it turns into syrup.
- Place fish fillets in oven safe baking pan.

- Broil for 8-10 minutes until opaque in center.
