Yum! A Simple & Lighter Fish Florentine

There are so many delicious recipes out there that it’s incredibly difficult to keep track of.

Switch up your dinners with this awesome and delightfully light Fish Florentine!

The Defined Dish’s Fish Florentine Using Halibut

Can Any Fish Work?

I’ll be honest with you, I wasn’t able to get Halibut to test and review this recipe. Because grocery shopping has been a little difficult with deliveries, I decided to order some salmon. To give you a spoiler of how it turned out–yes, fish other than halibut will work just fine. All that you have to really mind is cooking times. You don’t want your fish to be dried out.

I did follow Defined Dish’s recipe and pan-fried the salmon, making sure to crisp up that skin too. Seriously–YUM!

If you manage to get some fresh halibut, then I have no doubt in my mind that it will turn out absolutely spectacular.

What I’m trying to get at here is that if you’re unable to find an ingredient for a recipe, it doesn’t always mean that you can’t make it. Take the time to look for suitable substitutes that will work in place of what you couldn’t find. I’ve done that plenty of times in the last 2 months and I haven’t been disappointed!

Why Is This A Lighter Fish Florentine?

I LOVE good food, but I also want to eat well for the sake of my health. That extends to those I’m feeding, too. I’m not going to serve rabbit food, but rather full and balanced meals that make everyone happy!

Why not make something delicious AND not all that bad for you?

That’s why this dish really caught my attention. Alex of The Defined Dish is absolutely fantastic when it comes to working with healthy and Whole30 foods. Her recipes have never steered me wrong.

This Fish Florentine didn’t either.

What makes this light is the use of coconut milk rather than heavy cream. The coconut milk is still very rich and really absorbs all the delicious flavors.

Grey’s Take on Fish Florentine

I always keep this question in the back of my mind when I try something new. As much as I love reviewing recipes, I love having something to fall back on that I KNOW will be delicious. Many of you will agree, I have no doubt about that.

So my answer to that question is: yes. I absolutely would make this again, but definitely on a weekend evening.

This Fish Florentine is fantastic because of its simplicity as well as its flavor.

This dish deserves nothing but the freshest ingredients.

Grey’s Grade: 5/5

We’ve been on a roll with fantastic dishes lately, and I’m really excited about that. My goal here is to get you out of your comfort zones when finding recipes, but also to share with you my absolute favorite finds! This dish is being added to this list because it covers my three requirements:

  • It is super tasty!
  • It’s easy to make
  • It’s budget-friendly!

Keep in mind, I say this when considering this isn’t made every day of the week.

I hope that this review and recipe leave you excited to get cooking and trying new things!
