Lenten Delights - Part 1

Seafood dishes play a big part in my kitchen during lent.  I find seafood with beans, any kind of beans especially versatile as an idea.Seafood is also fast to make and enjoy.

Today, I pointed my fish monger to few fresh looking, monkfish filets. A quick sniff, and they were in my basket.  Don't be afraid to ask your fish guy to smell the  fish . He will know you are serious  about your fish .

Preparation Notes: 
Using two pans cook the edamame soy beans with some herbs, a few grape tomatoes  in one pan. In the other, cook your monkfish , half way through in some herbs, EVOO , garlic, a splash of white wine, you know , your favorite way .  Then add to the first pan with the beans to finish up.

Plate, and chow down. 

Salute !

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
