On Thursdays I tend to go through the fridge, freezer, garden, and pantry to see what needs to go before I do major shopping on Friday. I made a sort of tilapia filets picata with couscous when finding:
1/3 jar capers
1/2 snack-size box rasins
small hand full of pistachios
some green onions
a parsley plant that was bolting
a container of mushrooms that should have been used days ago
partial bottle of white wine
1/2 stick of butter
A box of couscous was reconstituted with chicken stock, then a little olive oil, capers, raisins, chopped pistachios, finely chopped parsley and sage were added
Sauteed the mushrooms, put aside, then sauteed the tilapia filets. removed and deglazed the pan with a bit of wine, the lemon, capers, chopped green onions.
Placed the filets on a bed of mixed greens, poured the mushrooms/picata sauce over them, and served with the couscous.
