Pan Seared Cod with Roasted Radish

  So it's not my prettiest dish yet, but absolutely delicious. The cod was so flaky and happy it just couldn't keep itself together. You will need... - 1-1/2 lb Cod Loin. I had 1 1/2 to well serve 3 people - Blackening Seasoning  - I use my Dads Rub ,  It is simply 2 parts Chili Powder- the "Hot" Mexican on the market shelves usually isn't too spicy. It is simply 1 part each, Black Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Paprika, Cumin, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Dry Mustard Powder. - 1 lb. Radishes - trim end and quarter - 1/2 Medium Onion diced - 1 Red Bell Pepper- bite size strips - 1 Small Poblano Pepper - Olive oil - Salt, Pepper and/or Garlic Powder to taste Preheat oven to 425. Line a sheet pan with foil and lightly oil. Toss all the veg with enough olive oil to coat and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Spread evenly on sheet. Roast for 30-40 minutes depending on your oven and preference. I like to get the veg to just starting to char a bit for max flavor. Whe

Steakadillas - Low Carb Steak Quesadilla

Shaved Steak - we use the prepackaged steak from the market, and cut across for finer steak - 1 medium onion diced - 1 pt. mushrooms, sliced - 3-4 Low Carb tortillas or favorite wrap - 6-8 Slices Provolone - or sub in your favorite cheese, can mix shredded w steak mix - Olive Oil for the pan, butter optional for the onions - Salt and Pepper to taste - I love celery salt! - Granulated garlic optional for steak and veg. - Optional Spicy Relish; I mix finely diced dill pickles, purple onions and banana pepper as a super zippy condiment, about 2 tablespoons of each is plenty.  Sweet relish is high in carbs, so I use low carb baby dill gherkins. We do this one pan style with our largest skillet. The surface area helps everything caramelize to yummy deliciousness. Pre heat the skillet with olive oil on medium-low to medium heat. The
