We were shopping and had already been to the fish market so I decided to get the bits for a Greek Salad. Paula had salmon (again) and I had red throat emperor. I made a garlic and thyme Beurre noisette or burnt butter sauce to top the fish. All very simple and tasty.
We were deciding what to have for dinner and Paula wanted to go out and I was for staying in and cooking. It was settled when we remembered the fresh squid sitting in the fridge. I knocked up a fresh coleslaw to go with and chilled it while I prepped and cooked the squid. The three Squid tubes made far more than expected, I tried to give the leftovers to my favourite neighbour, Meeka the dog (see pic) but she was not home.
As the weather heats up around here, we are moving away from the meaty winter dishes and leaning toward lighter more tropic friendly food. We love fish and seafood and that is the obvious road to travel particularly as we live on a yacht. When we go gypsy and live out at sea and the islands we eat loads of seafood, from fish to oysters, prawns, crabs and crayfish to name a few and we catch it all ourselves as we want it. Time we got back to doing that I think. Even here in the marina we have access to good fresh local seafood from the fishmonger up the road. This is some excellent Coral Trout just pan seared and a mandarin ginger sauce. The side dish is a roux based potato, asparagus and boiled egg bake. The new meat and three veg!
We went to the fish market today to get some fresh fish. Paula went with her usual choice of Atlantic Salmon. I however just couldn’t decide between, Red Throat Emperor or a nice freshly cut Spanish Mackeral steaks…So I had both! I made a Smoked Paprika Rice cake with last nights leftover rice and seared it in butter and I also made a Candied Orange, Triple Cream Brie and Fennel salad to go with the pan seared fish. And topped it all of with my Orange and Ginger sauce.
