Update on Fish and Chips...not really

So I haven't posted in a while, (you are going to get used to hearing this just like I got used to seeing it writen in my journal) but I have exciting news (like anyone would care since I doubt anyone actually reads my blog)! I went thriftstore shopping with my friend and I found a cute Breadmaker which I purchased for....da da da dum...$5! Yay! So, it is a really nice one too! It can make not only basic breads, but has a whole wheat setting, a setting to make dough for pastries that can't be cooked in the bread maker (ex, bagels, doughnuts, croissants), a jam, and cake setting! It has a timer so I can exspect bread in the morning if I throw in the ingredients the night before. Very nifty. It comes with a plethora of recipes and saves me a load of time. Its not even bad at the actual cooking of the bread like many machines that people only use for kneading and proofing.

But enough ranting over my wonderfull machine. I also must tell you I have been indulging in my love of fish. Yep. My father is A-Lerg-ic so I don't get to eat it much but If I have the time I grab a single serving at the store. I must tell you I have found nice Bobby flay recipe and I improvised one of my own!

White Fish w/ Coconut Cilantro Lime Sauce

1/2 can unsweetened coconut milk
2 tablespoons sweetened cream of coconut (recommended: Coco Lopez)
1/4 cup fresh or bottled key lime juice
1 serrano chile, coarsely chopped
1-inch piece ginger, peeled and chopped
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh lime zest
1 cup canola oil
1/4 cup unsweetened dried coconut
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

I left out the rest of the recipe which was originally swordfish skewers because I used a whole fillet of Ling cod insted. I just cooked the fish and put all of the sauce ingredients in the blender (except the cilantro which I added after blending) then plated and poured the sauce on top of the fish. (don't forget garnish!)
