A simple, early-fall Sunday dinner:

Grilled Hen (olive oil, rosemary, salt, pepper)

Green Beans (olive oil)

Potatoes (olive oil, salt, butter)

"Gravy" (2c chicken stock, 8 garlic cloves, salt, butter - reduce everything but the butter until thickish then stir it in)

Time for a nap!

More Fish

My first go around with the new range (Bosch dual fuel, four burner). Lake trout bought today paired with some veggies: farmers market tomatoes (I really don't like using that term but it does describe the fact that they are better than the super market kind), edamame and spinach. Farmers market (again) sweet, sweet corn.

Saute the tomato with olive oil and sea salt, add edamame then add spinach for a few seconds (seriously). Remove to plates, wipe the pan, add oil and slowly cook the fish.

Boil the water, and add the corn.

That's pretty much it - healthy and tasty.

Oh, and add that scallion / ginger sauce.


A friend called Tilapia "bottom feeders" (and went on to describe what they feed on at the bottom). I didn't need to hear that and still cook them occasionally - :).

Here with green beans, tomato risotto, the bottom feeder topped with scallion / ginger sauce (if you have read any of my other posts then you may remember that sauce). The risotto was the best part - as usual.

Fried Fish

Frozen fish and several veggies all in a one pot (wok):

- Pre-cut and washed Kale in a bag
- Trade Joe's green beans (aka haricort verts)
- Fresh tomatoes

I started with the green beans, sauteed them in a hot wok with a little vegetable oil until slightly brown, removed them and added the tomatoes, let them collapse (so to speak) then added the kale. Kale is a very nutritional vegetable.

Put the green beans to one side and drizzled with aioli. Put the tomatoes on top of the kale. Heat a cup or so of vegetable oil, dip fish in milk and then a salty, peppery flour mix then fry to golden brown. Put on top of the kale / tomato and drizzle hot sauce!
