  • 2 medium carrots, sliced into 1/4" x 2" matchsticks
  • 2 small parsnips, sliced into 1/4" x 2" matchsticks
  • 2 leeks (white and light green sections only), sliced
  • 2 Tbs of coconut oil
  • 1-1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp thyme

Instructions

  1. Cut the fillets in half lengthwise.
  2. Season each piece with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, and roll into small rolls.
  3. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat.  Add coconut oil to pan when hot.
  4. Add carrots, parsnips, and leeks to pan and sauté for about 5 minutes.
  5. Reduce to heat to low, add vegetable broth and thyme.
  6. Place the fish rolls on top of the vegetables and cover.
  7. Steam for 8-10 minutes or until the fish is tender. NOTE: do not remove lid unless necessary to check for doneness.

    Delicious! Next time I won’t bother rolling up the fish, as it just fell apart during steaming anyway.
