Local mama business owners share their recipes of success...... for dinner! November 13 2014, 0 Comments

 

This installment of DINNER: OWNED BY MAMA is featuring Fannie, from EVER Brooklyn , a company that features essential oils for home, health, and beauty that are curated by artisan distillers from around the world.  Pretty cool, huh?  And, as their name implies, they are based right here in Brooklyn.  In addition to being a mom of 3 - yes 3! - children, Fannie is a trained scientist that realized the importance of everyday health to avoid chronic illnesses and she developed a passion for finding natural ways to lower the risks.  And so, EVER Brooklyn became her platform for sharing her knowledge and passion of essential oils with others. 

 

Motherburg first met EVER Brooklyn last winter when they were just getting started.  Read our Q&A here.  And while Fannie's family grew, so has her business! EVER will be launching a new set of oils this weekend, joining Fannie's husband, Alex McWatt, a tattoo artist and founder of Three King Tattoo in Greenpoint (and now Manhattan!), in a new venture called Kings of Brooklyn  - featuring handmade apothecary goods. Alex wanted to create a line with high quality natural ingredients that presents a design aesthetic that appeals to both men and women.The essential oils in his apothecary products are supplied by EVER. There will be a pop-up shop this weekend, right here in Williamsburg, at Jack Taylor Studios.  The pop-up shop will also launch a line of products from a new collaboration between EVER Brooklyn and Andy Sherwood, a Brooklyn pilates instructor.

  • Developing a new business and being a mama has kept Fannie pretty busy.  But, like most moms, she wants to make sure her kids are eating home cooked meals and has shared with us her fish taco recipe.
        
    Kid’s Fish Tacos
    • .75lb white fish filet (wild cod or hake)
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 shallot, diced
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ½ tsp paprika
    • pepper to taste
    • 3 TBSP Butter
    • 6 soft flour tortillas
    • 20 grape tomatoes
    • 4 large leaves butter lettuce
    • 1 lemon
    • shredded Mexican mix cheese or cheddar
    • sour cream
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    Rinse filet of fish to make sure it is free of scales and bones. Pat dry, and place on a baking dish. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and paprika evenly on both sides of filet. Cover
    filet with garlic and shallots. Add pats of butter on top of fish. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until desired tenderness.
    While fish is baking, shred lettuce, halve grape tomatoes, and slice lemon.
    Once fish is done, warm up a flour tortilla in a pan to soften. When ready, place tortilla on plate and add a small serving of baked fish. Be sure to leave enough room for
    toppings and to wrap tortilla. Let kids add whatever toppings they wish, add a dollop of sour cream and enjoy!
