Crispy Thyme Haddock & Broccolini (AIP, GAPS, GF, DF, Paleo, Keto)
On a complicated protocol like AIP, I honestly find it is best to just keep things simple. It prevents me from spending all my days in the kitchen and never socializing with another human being outside my household ever again.
My favourite thing in the world is when I can just fire up the oven, throw a bunch of food on a tray and let it chill there until it’s ready and then we just EAT!
You can find some of my favourite one-dish AIP meals here, and I’m adding another one to the repertoire now with this delicious haddock & broccolini!
The star of the show is thyme. As you may know, the variety of spices we can work with on the autoimmune protocol is limited (nothing made from a pepper, berry or seed - that’s way more than you might think!). So, we tend to have to rely on herbs for flavour!
Interestingly enough, this may be part of the therapeutic benefits of the autoimmune protocol.
Thyme, for example, has a variety of medicinal qualities:
Improves the appearance of acne
Lowers blood pressure
Boosts your immune system
Combats mold overgrowth (a common root cause of autoimmune disease)
Improves mood & cognitive function (bye-bye brain fog!)
These are just a few of the benefits documented in the scientific literature.
So, what do you think? Is it time to start adding thyme to your dishes?
Start with this!
Crispy Thyme Haddock & Broccolini
(AIP, GAPS, GF, DF, Paleo, Keto)
TIME: 15 minutes
2 haddock fillets (5oz each)
1 bunch broccolini
2 tbsp avocado oil
1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp sea salt
Preheat the broiler on high
Adjust the top rack of the oven approximately 6 inches from the top, and preheat the broiler. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Place the haddock and broccolini on the trail and coat with avocado oil. Season with thyme and sea salt.
Broil until fish is easily flaked with a fork. This should take 7-8 minutes. Enjoy!
I recommend pairing this as pictured with my mashed rutabaga. They make a great match!
