Garlic Lemon Fish

While painting was getting done in the house and the children were still home from school last week, we drove to Houston to visit my parents.   My kids love their grandparents and it is always a grand adventure filled with tons of playing with grandma and grandpa and LOTS of yummy, decadent food (especially desserts-DOH!!!  Sugar coma for my children!)  

My dad requested that I make one of my signature dish and a favorite in our house for dinner one evening.  So, being the wonderful daughter that I am, I happily made this delicious fish recipe!

Garlic Lemon Fish


  • 4-6 fish filets
  • 3-5 garlic cloves
  • About 6 lemons
  • Butter
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt, pepper, herbs de provence, paprika
  1. Heat oven to 425
  2. Mince garlic
  3. Cut and juice lemons
  4. Melt about 1/2 stick of Butter (yep, it’s butter but that’s okay!)
  5. Saute minced garlic in olive oil until fragrant (about 30-45 secs–do this over a low to med heat).  Remove from heat
  6. Combine sauteed garlic with the melt butter, juice from lemons, 3 tbs olive oil
  7. Pat dry fish filets.  (To determine whether you should use wild caught vs farm raised fish, please visit Blue Ocean Institute)
  8. Place fish in baking dish coated with olive oil
  9. Pour lemon garlic butter over fish
  10. Season fish filets with herbs de provence, salt (I prefer Himalayan salt since sit also contains other minerals), pepper, paprika (smoked or sweet).
  11. Bake for roughly 25 minutes.  May need to bake longer if using frozen fish.

Garlic Lemon Fish

I like to cook brown rice while I am prepping and the fish is baking.  I will top the rice with the fish and some of the sauce.  I will serve alongside it a nice large leafy green salad loaded with veggies and my homemade dressing.   An excellent nutritionally complete meal!



Marci’s Green Smoothie Recipe

Here’s a great Green Smoothie “starter”.  Make modifications to fit your dietary needs. Blending the greens in a high powered blender works best to minimize any chunks.  I use my Blendtec Total Blender.

Add extra water to thin out smoothie if it is too thick for your taste.  Also, if just starting with green smoothies, start with mix of 50/50 greens to fruit.  Gradually decrease amount of fruit and increase greens.

Step 1:  Blend the following for about 60 seconds until smooth

  • Put 2 Cups Filtered Water into BlendTec Total Blender
  • Small Amount Stevia
  • Juice of  1/4 Whole Lemon
  • Add 2 cups combo of Organic Spinach/Kale (or any other greens like chard, collard, purple kale)

Step 2:  Add the following to blender and blend again

  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Small organic apple
  • 1 Cup organic frozen berries (masks the color)*
  • 2 Tbs chia seeds
  • Couple ice cubes

*You can substitute any fruit in.*
