Last night was day one of our 2–5 Diet and we had what has turned out to be a very satisfying and tasty diet meal: fish on a bed of sliced mushrooms and tomatoes. The only problem last night was that the cook failed to add the sprinkle of chopped shallots so the fish was pretty flavourless.
The fish, Patagonian Toothfish, was as flavoursome as always but without the added flavour of the chopped shallots it was more than a little flat. Actually it was good as an experiment because I had had not known if the shallots added that much to the recipe and yes, they really do add that much!
Along with my fish Diane sliced two rounds of eggplant apiece and grilled them along with two mushrooms for which she made a tantalizing Greek yogurt as a tasty spread to accompany the vegies.
This delicious diet meal was accompanied by two glasses of flavoured water.
