The beginning of this year, I was reintroduced to Lindsay Olives, when I participated in Kitchen PLAY. Who knew that foodie event, would open the door to new opportunities, but it did.
Last month Lindsay Olives approached me about doing some freelance work for them, styling and photographing some of their recipes, for their website. It was a lot of fun as Lindsay Olives let me pick which recipes were of interest (which was a very hard choice), and then I got to run with styling and shooting.
The first recipe I chose to photography is this healthy fish fillets with warm tomato olive vinaigrette recipe. I loved working with this recipe, for many reasons. One being it was visually appealing with the gorgeous red tomatoes next to the deep black olives. As well it was incredibly easy to make, which meant I had dinner on the table in no time. It is the perfect for the working couple who wants a romantic dinner at home after a long day, or the rushed soccer mom who likes to feed her family a healthy meal.
The recipe suggests using a firm white fish, such as cod, orange roughy or snapper. I used true cod as I like the meaty texture and mild flavor. The warm vinaigrette is made with a mixture of Lindsay olives, sweet cherry tomatoes, fresh herbs and a splash of white wine vinegar to add some tang. I love how gently warming tomatoes releases all their juices, creating a delicious sauce. The marriage of flavors between the olives and tomatoes goes very well with the creamy cod.
