Sea Salt and Pepper (to taste)
2-4 sprigs of Rosemary
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2. Rinse and dry your prepped mushrooms. Toss the mushrooms with the oil, vinegar, rosemary and salt and pepper.
3. Place mushrooms on a flat baking sheet. Roast at 425 degrees for about twenty minutes – or until they begin to caramelize around the edges. After roasting, they should still be moist, yet fully cooked and flavorful to eat on their own.

4. While mushrooms are roasting, steam the cauliflower. Drain the water, place tender cauliflower in a medium soup pot. (You should be able to break the cauliflower with a fork after steaming.)
5. Add 2 cups of Chicken Broth to your soup pot and use a hand blender to blend. Blend until the cauliflower is smooth.

Paprika

Crack the eggs into a shallow bowl. Whip the eggs in a bowl with a fork.

In another bowl pour in the flour and seasonings to your liking.

Heat 2tbs oil in frying pan. Med-High. Dip fishstick into egg and then roll in flour and place in hot frying pan. Do this quickly over and over until pan is full. Don’t flip until one side is nice and golden otherwise it will be a disaster. Flip each piece carefully and let cook until golden. Remove and place on a glass plate covered with a paper towel to absorb some of the oil.

Scrape out pan and repeat all the steps including melting new oil.

*You may need more flour and more egg depending on how much fish you have.
