Whole Foods Does it again: Seafood Wednesday

I might start sounding like a walking , talking , blogging advertisement for Whole Foods Market. But I like the place. Their ingredients are of very good quality, and allow me to quickly put together some dishes that friends and family get to enjoy.

This Wednesday gets to thank the fish monger at my local Whole Foods for some good , swordfish steaks that I used to make a very delicious seafood dish.

Swordfish and Scallops in Fennel and Pickled Okra Sauce 

1 1/2 lb Swordfish
1 lb of medium sized scallops
Pickled Okra
1 Fennel bulb
Splash of white wine


Swordfish steaks with Fennel , Pickled Okra Sauce

The dish starts with a pan full of sliced fennel (remove the core) and a handful of coarsely julienned pickled okra.. The secret to this dish is that the seafood needs to cook in its own broth and the vegetable juices over low heat , covered with a lid. The Scallops are added toward the mid point of cooking time.

Served over a Saffron Oyster Mushroom Risotto bed, this seafood dish becomes something extraordinary. I won't document the risotto here, but you can make it by adding sliced Oyster Mushrooms to a Saffron risotto base.

Wednesday is Prince Spaghetti day ? I don't think so !

Salute !

My Calabria

Yesterday , was one of those days where I just needed to recoup from a very intense stretch consulting work. Longer days than usual, and lots of New York Metro pressure than I would like on a daily basis. So,  with the weatherman telling me that we would have some fairly nice outlooks for this weekend,  I decided to spend less time playing with my computers. My plans included included resuming and catching up with some of my blogging.. You've seen some of that already . But my highlight for the day  was for me and my Queen to head down to Chinatown in NYC.  Our plans: do some food shopping , correction some "window" food shopping and course,  just take in as much we could of the Chinatown scene. Given that Little Italy is also right next door to Chinatown, we would stop there too. If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown  nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors.  Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.

The plan worked out. So do read on.

Paella Experimentation

There are times that I love to experiment just to kill away the boredom. And I get to play the culinary Guinea Pig. Yummy

Here are some plays on Paella

This was made with Brown Rice, Very different way to cook.  Grouper Filet , who would have thought, was made part of the recipe.
