    This delicious bowl of steamy mussels creates a big impact with minimal effort. Plus, you're cooking with wine! So pour yourself a glass and let's get started.... Be sure to have a nice big pot with a close-fitting lid. The mussels will open and take up more space when they cook, so leave some room in there. A pair of tongs is also super useful for moving them to the bowls later.
     
    Ingredients:
    • Mussels (2lbs or more)
    • Butter

    The silky and rich flavor of sablefish pairs beautifully with Asian flavors. Whip up this simple marinade in the morning and by dinner time you’ll be done in a flash. Or marinade for at least 30 minutes while you kick off your shoes and have a glass of wine. (Note: this also works well with halibut and salmon.)

    Herb-Crusted True Cod
    I love the contrast of this crunchy topping and the smooth, flaky fish. Fresh herbs are key here (and fresh breadcrumbs too if you have a food processor and some leftover bread). 
     
    Ingredients:
    • 1lb true cod fillets
    • A little olive oil on the baking pan
    • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
    • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
    • 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped (or any fresh herb you have, really)
    • 2 tablespoons fresh chives (or scallions, chopped finely in a pinch)
    • 1 clove...
  • Night smelt fish fry (or, fries with eyes!)
    2014-02-26T02:39:51.008Z
    Fresh, sparkling night smelt - what a treat!  If you've ever dipped for these yourself you know how magical these little creatures are and how they smell a little bit like cucumber fresh from the sea.
     
    I've tried a few methods, but a good old fashioned FRY yields the happiest results.  Paired with this zesty dipping sauce, you have the makings of a delicious appetizer or fun dinner. Their bones are so fine you do not need to debone...
