Pan-fried Curried Chilean Sea Bass Over White Rice and Broccoli
Ingredients:
2 Chilean sea bass fillets, descaled and de-boned
1 cup cooked white rice
1 head broccoli, florets only, stem thrown out
1 thumb size piece fresh ginger, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3 tablespoons curry powder
Chili flakes
Salt and pepper
To Make:
Season both sides of each sea bass fillet with salt, pepper, and curry powder. Use all of the curry powder. Rub the seasoning gently into the fish.
On high heat, heat up some olive oil in a small pan. Once hot, place one fillet in the center of the pan. Tilt the pan on an angle toward yourself and spoon the oil collecting at the bottom repeatedly back over the fish. The result you’re looking for is a crispy coat so keep spooning the hot oil over the fish until it is cooked through and crispy, should take 2-3 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillet. 
Repeat on second fillet.
In a large pan, heat up the sesame oil along with a sprinkling of chili flakes. Reduce heat to medium and add in the garlic and ginger. Saute for 30 seconds and add in the broccoli. 
Add in the soy sauce and give it all a toss. 
Saute while stirring for 2 minutes, until broccoli is tender. Remove from heat.
In individual bowls, divide up the rice, followed by the broccoli (including the juices), and finish with a nice fillet on top. 
Enjoy!

Broccoli Pesto Pasta with Basil and Lemon
Ingredients:
1/2 lb dried tagliatelle or fettuccine pasta
Large bunch fresh basil
Handful pine nuts or almonds
1 head of broccoli
Olive oil
1 small potato
Parmesan cheese
1 lemon
1 clove of garlic
Salt and pepper
A few mint leaves
To Make:
Peel and wash the potato. Using the peeler, “peel” the potato into thin slices until the whole potato is sliced. Set aside.
Cut off the broccoli florets. Set aside.
Wash and pick off the basil leaves. Roughly chop. 
Grate 3 ounces of Parmesan cheese ~ about a cup
Make the pesto by combining in either a food processor or a mortar and pestal, a large handful of basil, a handful of pine nuts or almonds, the juice of 1/2 lemon,  1 clove garlic, 1-2 tablespoons olive oil (depending on how moist the pesto gets), a handful of grated parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, and a few mint leaves (optional). Mix everything together until it becomes a smooth paste. 
In a large pot, cook pasta according to package. 2 minutes before it is done, add the broccoli and potato slices. Drain when done, saving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. 
In the same pot, combine the fresh pesto, rest of the Parmesan cheese, rest of chopped basil leaves, and some of the cooking water to loosen the sauce.
Add in the pasta and broccoli back into the pot and give it a big stir. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. 
Divide into serving bowls. Grate a bit more Parm over it, maybe a basil leaf or two, and a wedge of lemon. 
Enjoy!
This is a fresh and healthy pasta dish that tastes amazing! Try it!
