I’m pretty excited about today’s post and giveaway, it’s my biggest giveaway I’ve had here on the blog and it’s for a product I love and have been using for a long time. I’m asked often about what kind of nonstick skillets I use and over the years, I can tell you, I’ve gone through quite a few and have stuck with Calphalon for as long as I can remember now.
I think it’s safe to say that my family uses our nonstick skillets almost daily. My husband is always cooking up eggs for us for breakfast, and I like to use them for frittatas, fish and quick vegetable sautes. Since I’m usually trying to keep the amount of oil and butter I use to a minimum, a good nonstick skillet is something I really depend on in my cooking.
(this is the Calphalon Unison Nonstick 10″ Omelet Pan – with only 1/2 a teaspoon of coconut oil that I used for this recipe)
Fish is something I cook for my family usually a couple of times a week. I tend to broil salmon, but I really like pan frying seasoned white fish, like flounder or tilapia, for quick weeknight meals. It cooks up in just minutes and is perfect alongside veggies, over a salad or in a sandwich like the one I’m sharing with you today. Using a nonstick skillet like this Calphalon Unison one really cuts down on the amount of oil you have to use to get a nicely seared piece of fish. I only use about a 1/2 – 1 teaspoon each time I cook in my nonstick skillet and the food literally just slides out of the pan and onto your plate. Literally.
These Spicy Fish Wraps are perfect for when you are looking for something quick and light to make for lunch or dinner. All you need is a few ingredients – wraps, fresh veggies and fish – along with some kicked up mayo, and you’ve got yourself a meal you could feel good about. I always love a good fish sandwich but sometimes I really just don’t want to feel heavy after eating a big piece of bread. I opted to use whole wheat wraps to keep things lighter – and because whole wheat wraps tend to be full of protein and fiber, you still feel full and satisfied.
You can customize these wraps however you’d like. I used regular seafood seasoning this time around, but I love blackened fish so next time I make them I’ll use my favorite blackening seasoning instead. I served them alongside some roasted sweet potatoes, but they would be also great with some slaw or baked chips.
I’ve partnered up with Calphalon for the launch of their new Your Set site - a place where you can create your own unique cookware set based on your personal cooking style. Instead of purchasing pre-packaged sets, you are basically building your own mix and match set with your cooking needs in mind by choosing between Calphalon’s premium lines of cookware, Unison Nonstick and AccuCore Stainless Steel. Go check it out and play around. Pretty cool if you ask me.
