dinner tonight


i need to lose 15-20 lbs…trying to eat healthy.  so I make  a lot of fish.  mostly salmon ( i know, not the most dietetic of fish!!).  tonight i bought steelhead trout, which is very similar to salmon.  i believe it comes from california.  they belong to the family salmonidae which includes all salmon, trout, and chars…the flavor is a bit fuller than salmon, more gamey, not in a bad way…i’m glad i poached it…it is a nice clean way to cook fish.  i like to eat it simply… with a bit of fresh lemon or just a drizzle of soy.

if you like to poach fish, a poacher is great.  I love mine…i use it often.  I fill it 1/4 way with water then i add a cup or so of white wine..slice some onion, lemon a bay leaf some pepper corns (this is called a court bouillon)…add the cleaned fish.  set poacher across 2 burners and cook for about 15-25 minutes or so (check often).  so easy.

the broccoli rabe was excellent.  really, it was, this one is a keeper.  i started by washing and roughly cutting the leaves…added them to boiling salted water for just a minute or 2.  drained them and added them to an ice bath.  sauteed garlic, pine nuts and raisins salt and pepper add the greens back to the pan!…yum!!
