Red Snapper (Rock cod?) baked with lemon and stuff; refried rice; favas – 17 May 2019

LOL! We have not used the spring onions that I bought a week ago at the farm stand, with the intention of grilling them, b/c D likes to do that. So I mentioned them when we were considering dinner plans, … Continue reading

Tilapia baked in a cilantro/ginger/soy/sesame sauce; chard – 9 May 2019

No bones in tilapia fillets! I do love that. R&E left us almost an entire bunch of cilantro, which I originally thought was parsley. Of which we also had most of a bunch, in washed bouquets on the island. So … Continue reading

Orange roughy poached in parchment; pilaf; long choi – 25 April 2019

Salmon and Scallops Provencale at Ned’s – 26 January 2019

B&L suggested dinner at Ned’s, and I found a really good meal there that was pretty light and veggie-rich, though still rather on the large side. The fact that I ordered an extra order of breadlets didn’t help. They were … Continue reading

Marinated swordfish; green beans; rice; range bizarrity – 13 December 2018

So I found this google doc I had made called “try me” and it had an interesting-sounding grilled halibut dish with capers and such, and I decided to try it, since I was going to the Bowl anyway and could … Continue reading

Orange roughy with original sauce; rice recooked with mushrooms and onions; radish greens – 16 October 2018

D suggested, since I was going to the Bowl and we had no specific plans (except using leftover rice) that we could have fish of some kind. This is odd, b/c he is not a big fan of fish, b/c … Continue reading

Pacific Snapper (aka Rock Cod) with salsa and rice – 11 October 2018

Dinner at Musical Offering – 4 October 2018

We originally wanted to have dinner at Zellerbach’s before the concert there, but it seemed quite dicey, since the people taking reservations seemed not really to know anything about the dining situation. D called Musical Offering and made reservation there. … Continue reading

Microwave-poached salmon with pea pods; Thai jasmine rice – 5 June 2018

Another really nice dinner for the “new” (newly received) Mary Grabill dishes. Since the salmon has a lot of liquid in its parchment packet, the brief sides, adding the characteristics of a low bowl, make this design an excellent one … Continue reading

Grilled, marinated swordfish with red pepper aioli for Easter dinner; Brussels sprouts; mixed rices – 1 April 2018

Resisted the temptation to tell R&E “April Fool” about the promised swordfish. Since the Bowl would be closed on Easter, I asked on Friday if there would be a fish delivery on Saturday, the last purchase day before we wanted … Continue reading

Grilled salmon; grilled zucchini, leftover rice with sweet white onions – 6 February 2018

I’m trying to choose dinners to use the wines we got recently – either tasters or testers – from Wine Mine or Costco. Obviously, no tasters from Costco – but this was one we tasted at Wine Mine. I liked … Continue reading

Crackers with sardines, Cambozola; piperade – 1 February 2018

Symphony night again, and D suggested we have more of the Cabozola we got at the Bowl, and add in a can of the sardines I got when they were tasting them at Costco last summer. We didn’t have bread, … Continue reading

Grilled swordfish; avocado and orange salad – 11 December 2017

This is a recipe from the cookbook Tsunami, from the like-named restaurant in Memphis. R&E ate there several years ago, and brought us this cookbook as a result. I’ve made this a few times before. The fish is simply salted, … Continue reading

Tilapia; piperade; brown rice – 8 December 2017

D really wanted to try the piperade alongside a fish. I went to the Bowl and texted him some options, and he selected tilapia. No bones! That’s a big plus for me. The smallish fillet I got was maybe half … Continue reading

Deep-fried, beer-battered fish at a nifty roadside diner – 9 November 2017

Nicoise of small round things; Romano beans 18 August 2017

D wanted to use up the radishes and Tokyo turnips, as well as the last three itty quail eggs,  by making another Nicoise salad “with whatever we have around,” rather than shopping for stuff. The other half of the tuna … Continue reading

Dinner at Riva Cucina – 11 May 2017

Grilled tuna, radicchio and green onions, and cannellini beans, in anchovy vinaigrette, with homemade aioli – 13 December 2016

This is a meal I love from Paul Bertolli’s Chez Panisse Cooking. D and I made the aioli – one egg yolk, whisked constantly as 1/2 cup peanut (or other unopinionated oil) is first dripped in, then streamed slowly, followed … Continue reading

Pan-fried salmon; patate arrosto; canned corn – 1 June 2015

Aaack! Can’t believe, with all the time I had to sit at my computer while visiting at Mom’s that I didn’t write up ANY DINNERS. But I cooked most of them, so I can reconstruct based on the photos. I’m … Continue reading
