grilled cod with a sundried tomato bulgar wheat and aubergine caviar

I am in a part of my life where i realised being on a little diet won’t do me any harm. So since the last few weeks , i separated from cheese and chocolate ( believe me it is hard to be french and not eat cheese) and i welcomed fresh fruits and vegetables  for a healthier lifestyle . I do not know if i really lost weight as i hate my scale but i feel 200 times better .  In this post i used bulgar wheat , some people think seeds are boring and tasteless but it is our job to make them exciting and the addition of sundried tomatoes  give it a lovely flavour . And instead of using a creamy sauce or flavoured butter , i made an aubergine caviar to accompany the grilled fish it is a great alternative .

Bon appetit

Ingredients:

  1. Sounds yummy! I’m always looking for new fish recipes and maybe it’s not so much about the fish as it is what the fish is served with! May have to give this one a try.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and “following”.
    I look forward to more delicious recipe posts from you!

  2. Great food. Beautiful to look at. Simple, nutritous but delicious meal. I can’t believe it when people say preparing good food is too hard or expensive 🙂
