Another version of a cherry sauce, this time prepping for Salmon (coming soon). I apparently didn’t take any pictures of the prep. I am sorry.
Recipe is as follows:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/3 cup dry white wine
Salt and pepper (more pepper than salt)
Bring to a boil, and simmer until reduced by half. Cool, and pour into a glass container for keeping in the refrigerator. Can serve cold or warmed.
Oh! and David got me this amazing cherry pitter at store after he witnessed what I went through the battle of removing cherry pits with a paperclip! I will say it works better if you follow the instructions! This was amazing! It did four cherries at once! AND my fingers weren’t blue! So nice. And, yes, I have to label things, otherwise I forget what it is…at least I am honest! Blessings.
I follow a lot of amateur cooks, chefs, and foodies on social media and this has been making the rounds lately. I am fascinated by Julia Child, and one of these days hope to purchase one or all of her cookbooks (or maybe will get them as gifts-hint hint).
But, I find this so interesting that her last meal would be a chicken – not beef or duck – but a perfectly roasted chicken. I like roasted chicken, but for my last meal? Maybe I just haven’t have the perfect roasted chicken? I understand the seafood, and the dessert, but again, I come back to the chicken.
Have you had such a perfectly roast chicken that you would want it as your last meal? What would you have as your last meal?
Mine would be cold as ice oysters on the half shell, a heavily marbled bone-in rib-eye steak medium rare, and steak fries – crispy, crunchy ones. If I could have anything, cooked by anyone, it would be my Oma’s kase spaetzle with my Mom’s chocolate cake.
Cod is high in protein, 3 ounces is 15 grams. So the last time we went to the store we purchased some that are individually packed and frozen. With it being just the two of us, and I am not able to eat a lot in each meal, this is more efficient for us. I have gotten tired of chicken lately.
For the marinade:
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small red onion, chopped (I had a small yellow onion)
10 pitted Kalamata Olives, chopped
2 Tablespoons dried Oregano
Juice from a lemon
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Pat the fish dry with paper towels. I only took out 3 pieces of fish. This marinade is good for up to 6 pieces of fish.
Place in a glass dish.
Cover the fish with the marinade (yes, all of it). Cover, refrigerate, and let the fish marinade for at least 30 minutes but up to 2-3 hours.
Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for approximately 25-30 depending on the thickness of the fish.
I made steamed broccoli and rice for David.
I just had fish. Cod is a firm, white, flaky fish that cooked up nicely with these flavors. It was moist, and not salty. I had one fish, and David enjoyed the other. Cod is full of protein, and I didn’t feel like that was all I was having. This was a real treat that I will be making again.
