Our friends M&N are staying here en route to their getaway in Marin, and D&I cooked dinner tonight while M was picking up N at the airport: Grilled swordfish marinated in chili/cayenne, topped with a roasted red pepper aioli, and served over Thai jasmine rice. This is from Weber’s Art of the Grill.
I suggested this meal b/c I love it and people who have it tend to feel the same way. Cost almost $40 for the $14.99/lb swordfish, but we actually have 1/9 of it left over and will have it for lunch tomorrow (one of the nine skewers, each with 4 cubes of swordfish).
D suggested using up the “used zucchini” – white zucchini I bought in a discount bag a couple of days ago – so I sliced four of them thinly with a Benriner, and D sauteed them with onions – quite a bit. They were totally overcooked, but still tasty.
There were so many skewers I had to put them sideways on the grill.
D bought another bottle of Pomelo sauvignon blanc for “cooking wine” (wine to drink while cooking) and brought up a CalStar 2007 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir for dinner. Both of the wines went very well with the dinner, though we had less opportunity to try the SB.
