Cod with Hazelnut Browned Butter

sage-cod-hazelnut-browned-butter-recipe-469.jpg

A few months ago, I thought it would be fun to make hazelnut milk. Yes, fun to make, fun to sip, but the concoction was so rich that sipping was all we could do….that is….until we discovered that adding a shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream to it made it fantastically addictive. We haven’t made hazelnut milk since – but with …

Seafood Miso Noodle Soup

A couple of weeks ago, we had a massive Temaki sushi party with friends. If you’ve never been to one, I highly suggest making friends with the fine folks at I Love Blue Sea  or head over to Casson Trenor’s site, Sustainable Sushi and host a sushi party of your own. Since I’m a type of person who always over-cooks for dinner parties …

Grilled Fish with Citrus Herb Crust

Grilled Fish with Citrus Herb Crust Recipe - final photo

Last week my kitchen got more action than I think it’s ever gotten in its life. The previous owners weren’t big cooks and since we’ve moved in, cooking has mostly been at our outdoor kitchen by the pool. Last week’s occasion was a 5-day visit from Adam and Joanne, a couple who cooks, blogs, commutes and works together. Now, that’s a …

Bouillabaisse

A couple of weeks ago, I hosted my buddy Hank Shaw of the award-winning Hunter Gardener Angler Cook at our home and hit 2 out of the 4 activities from his blog name: fishing and cooking. If you must know why those 2 specific activities, our garden is winding down for its summer rest and hunting involves either a gun, …

Baked Fish in Parchment (video)

parchment-baked-fish-recipe-6870

This is a dish for my bachelor brother, Jay, who lives alone and has those awful working hours only doctors on-call could endure. Sure, it looks glam on Grey’s Anatomy, but I honestly don’t think he’s romping in the supply closet. Or at least I don’t want to think that. Simple, flexible recipes with little clean-up are the type of …

Matsutake Mushroom Dobin Mushi Recipe

One of my favorite cooking shows of all time is the original Iron Chef. No, not the modern version that plays over and over on Food Network right now, but the one taped in Japan with the silly English dubbing that always cracks me up. The episode that I drooled most over was “Battle Matsutake.” Matsutake Tempura?! Oh hello lover! …

Sesame Seared Tuna with Lime Ginger Vinaigrette

In conjunction with my podcast with Michael Ruhlman’s Ratio: The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking. And true to the book’s goal, I didn’t use a recipe to develop the Lime-Ginger Vinaigrette for the Sesame Seared Tuna. After a quick check in the refrigerator, I had one good key lime and a nub of ginger…so following Ruhlman’s ratio …

Well, let me be more specific. I love GOOD sushi, none of that supermarket crap. It’s an indulgence that I allow myself once a month (it’s sooo expensive!) and …
