Honey Tips

How Honey Is Created

Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.


Brush fish fillets with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill or broil fish until just cooked through, a few minutes per side.
Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet. Add shallots and sauté 3 minutes. Add spinach and cook until wilted, stirring and adding more spinach until all is cooked. Move spinach to side of the skillet and add tomatoes. Sauté until tomatoes are heated through. Mix spinach and tomatoes together. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Stir.
To serve, spoon spinach and tomatoes on a plate. Top with a fish fillet.
