As expected, it was a great week with that break smack-dab in the middle!
I created two new dishes that I want to share. The first was Roasted Rock Fish in a chunky tomato sauce. Our friends caught the fish while in Alaska and were kind enough to share their bounty. When I opened the package, it smelled like the ocean. So fresh! So delicious! This dish is really great for entertaining because the tomato sauce can be made ahead of time and it only takes about 15 minutes for the fish to roast. If you can’t find rock fish, black cod or halibut would be good alternatives.
I also made Chicken Posole, a hearty broth-based chicken and hominy soup garnished with radish, avocado and cabbage. I roasted a chicken for the meat and used the carcass to make chicken broth. Don’t let that deter you from trying it. There are short cuts, of course, like buying broth and using a pre-roasted chicken. Delicious either way.
