Snapper under Rosemary and Thyme with Peas and Risotto

Ok, I know you can't eat the rosemary and thyme but that's how it came out of the frying pan and it looked great so I went with it. That made this really simple. Salt and pepper on the fish and fry it in olive oil. Put the rosemary and thyme on the fish while it cooks. 

The peas were frozen, cooked in the microwave, finished with butter and served like they were special. They are acceptable if you don't over cook them and serve them immediately.


2/3 cup Arborio rice
1.5 cup water
1 tsp chicken stock powder
1 cup grated parmesan
1/4 cup butter

Bring half the water to boil in a 10 inch skillet with lid. Add rice, water, stock powder. Stir, cover. Cook till water absorbed. Add remaining water, stir till absorbed. In a perfect world the rice would be perfect at this point but check it anyway. If it's still too crunchy add a little water and stir it a bit more. If it's done, add the parmesan and stir it in. Remove from heat. Add the butter and stir it in. Serve.

Fern had oral surgery today so this was a soft food meal and he absolutely loved it!
