I love the subtle flavour of perch. I first came across it about 10 years ago and bought it not knowing what it was. That happens a lot in Spanish fish markets. After cooking and tasting it, I was surprised that I hadn't had it before. I don't cook it often enough as it is a great fish.
This morning when perusing the fish counter and the sea of so many interesting looking ummmm, fish, to choose from, there were these lonely perch fillets. Sold!
Step one accomplished for dinner. But what to do with them. I remember making a lemon bread crust a few times for cod and I am sure it would work with perch as well. This is such a tasty combination. Honestly, it does not need the sauce. But the sauce is wonderful as a side accompaniment. People, like my husband. like sauce with pretty much everything. So a subtle side of parsley sauce it is.
Okay, so it might not quite be cool enough outside for me to be making this, but I am. The calender says it is fall so I am pretending the temperatures are cool enough for this soup.
This is such a basic and easy vegetable soup. It doesn’t have a lot of ingredients and it really doesn't take too long to make. It makes for a satisfying weeknight dinner.
Dare I say Christmas! I know, that is a crazy word right about now. But when I made these this morning, that was what came to mind. I found this recipe in Olive magazine from 2012 and thought it looked quite good. I couldn't find the recipe online, so I am only able to link to the magazine.
These brownies are chewy, chocolaty and minty. What could be better? Something tells me they will be making a reappearance in December!
So it's Monday and it is back to what to have for lunch. It always seems to be one of the biggest dilemmas around here. What to eat today?
The answer today comes in this delightful chicken sandwich. This is a favourite in our house and we have them probably at least once a month. Today, I did the chicken on the stove top, but it is even better if you have time to barbecue it. These can be eaten hot or cold. We prefer them on toasted bread and the ingredients hot. However, they also make for great picnic food taken away and prepared on the spot and eaten cold.
Well, as lovely has the weather has been this past week, we are back to hot temperatures. Which, for me, means back to summer style cooking. I know September is usually a hot month for us, but this year I was praying that we would escape it. Wishful thinking!!!
So, I was putting my hamburgers on the grill and trying to decide on a few side dishes. After searching the fridge for a few minutes, I found all of these ingredients. Quick, easy and tasty!
