Foodie Friday Fav - It's Friday!

Oops I'll add the actual recipe tomorrow!

This halibut recipe gets a mention because we've made it twice in about a month. So it's not a longstanding favorite of ours, but a new one. And a bonus, since I've been so negligent this week, you get the entire meal.

Cooking for Friends

The recipe is from Gordon Ramsay's book. It's pretty easy. The sauce makes the fish sing. This particular time, we served it with Brussels Sprouts with White Beans and Pecorino and roasted root vegetables that were tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Serving Brussels sprouts in the house was a huge challenge, but the husband relaxed and actually ended up trying them. There's a long history of Brussels sprouts veto in his house growing up, so I have been reluctant to try and serve them.

 The process:
Chopping veggies - celery root, a new favorite of ours

Playing with my new lens

Heating the garlic and the oil for the Brussels sprouts

Preparing the water with aromatics to poach the fish

Vegetables: we used carrots, potato, celery root, maybe some fennel
