If you’ve never had my husband cook for you, you’re definitely missing out.
This week’s #FoodieFriday we stay at home.
One of my husband’s all-time favorite fish is Sea Bass. Sometimes he goes extra gourmet with it, and other times he tones it down a bit. This week’s catch was simply seasoned with black pepper and himilayan sea salt, pan fried, and placed on a bed of homemade artichoke risotto, and I’ve got to say it was so good I could have been happy with either of them on their own. And, of course, he likes to make his dishes pretty, so there’s a little green onion on top for color.
But my favorite of the night were the oysters rockafeller. Mind you that he rarely cooks from a recipe. It’s a lot of “hmmm…I think I’ll just throw some of this in there” and not so much measuring.
So here’s a bit of the recipe that I came up with from watching what he did…
A dozen oysters, steamed
1/4 stick of butter, garlic, and onions sauteed with a little lemon juice
Add in about a cup of breadcrumbs (store bought..we aren’t THAT fancy)
Throw in some fresh spinach (a couple of handfuls from what I could tell)
Add a few chopped strips of bacon
Top your oysters with the mixture, top with some fresh parmesan, and throw in the oven for a bit
