Ono! So Simple. So Delicious!


When times get tough, the tough get to cooking. What’s better than super healthy comfort food?

Light. Healthy. Nutritious. Delicious!

Ono, also known as Wahoo, is lean and mild-flavored. You’ll want to be very careful to not overcook this fish.  I cooked mine in a little avocado oil with a grind or two of one of my favorite seasoning blends (use your favorite!). I quickly seared both sides then turned the heat to low, covered and cooked gently for a few minutes. You really don’t want to overcook this fish, so watch it closely.

The greens and mushrooms … not much to say except shiitake mushrooms are amazing.  Slice and cook them in a bit of avocado or olive oil on high heat. Sprinkle with a pinch or two of salt to taste. You’ll want to brown the mushrooms a bit, then put the clean greens (use your favorite blend of cooking greens) on top of the mushrooms, cover, reduce heat to low and allow to steam to your desired level of doneness. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

This batch of cauliflower I cut about a quarter of a large head into 1/4-inch thick slices and sauteed these in avocado oil on high heat. I wanted it to brown and caramelize a bit before adding the curry. I used a prepared curry powder (use your favorite!) and added just a bit of heat with some chili flakes. Turn the temperature down to low, cover, and allow to steam just a bit. I like my cauliflower very al dante, and not soft. Cook to your desired level of doneness.

This would be a terrific post-ride meal for a big ride like the Napa Valley Tour de Cure, don’t you think?

Enjoy in good health!
