I made this the other night. It was so easy and so gourmet tasting. If I didn't have to get up to do the dishes after dinner I would have thought I was at a fancy restaurant. =)

Ginger Mandarin Halibut and mashed potatoes

Briannas Ginger Mandarin Salad Dressing
Four fillets of your favorite fish (Salmon, Tilapia, Halibut…)
Pappy’s Seafood Spice
1 tbsp butter or olive oil

Mashed Potatoes:
8 medium red potatoes
1 ½ cups milk
5 to 8 tbsp butter
Garlic powder
Dried basil

Start by marinating the fish in a dish with a sprinkling of Pappy’s and drenched in the Ginger Mandarin Salad Dressing.

Then start the potatoes:
1. Wash them, cut out the bad spots and cut them into equal sized chunks. (I leave the skins on – you don’t have to). Bring to a boil in a big pot and boil until you can easily stick a fork through them.

(Make a salad while you’re waiting for the potatoes to boil – I did baby spinach, mixed greens, green onions, tomatoes and cucumber tossed lightly with the Ginger Mandarin Dressing.)

2. Drain the potatoes; put them back into the pot. Add butter and 1 cup of milk. Mash with a potato masher or a big serving fork. When they are all mashed add the rest of the milk and seasonings (garlic powder, dried basil, salt and pepper) to taste. Whip the potatoes with a fork for a minute or two. Put a lid on the pot to keep them warm.

Heat the butter or oil in a frying pan. Place the fish in the pan and pour a little of the dressing over top. Cook fish on medium high heat for 3-4 min on each side until it’s cooked all the way through. Keep it moving so it won't stick. Serve!

By the way "Briannas" is the brand of the dressing. I think they sell it at most grocery stores. Not to be confused with a salad dressing that is made by Brianna Heldt. =)

my husband hates fish. so i'm going to make one fish fillet (maybe one for the boys too) and one chicken breast.

where do you buy the dressing?

Kristen - I think it's just in the salad dressing section of most grocery stores. Though it might be in the produce section with the refigerated dressings.
