Superior morning. I like the appears to be like of Melissa Clark’s new recipe for roasted lemony fish with crispy caper brown butter and nori (earlier mentioned) and could make it tonight if I can find superior fish at the current market. But I’ll tell you this about these mid-September days of higher tension and small humidity, bluebird skies where I keep and a sort of assure in the environment that everything’s copacetic: They make me want to cook up some jobs, as well.
Appropriately, I could stalk the marketplaces I like, assemble dried crustaceans for a significant batch of XO sauce that I can use all week on noodles, with sautéed greens or green beans. I may make trotter gear versus the assure of a Guinness pie sometime in the foreseeable future, or as an addition to these marvelous braised rooster legs. And for dinner, a fantastic close-of-weekend feast: I could hold back on the roasted fish and steam some rather, a vital accompaniment for this amazing grand aioli.
With a strawberry Eton mess for dessert? That’d make for a fine afternoon in the kitchen and an even additional pleasurable a single at the desk afterward. I hope you are going to join me for some of it.
For Monday night time, just take a glance at this lovely fried eggplant with runny eggs and pine nuts, a riot of textures and flavors. Or, if Sunday’s labors have you running worn out, downshift into roasted pepper tartines, intellectual toaster-oven pizzas, effectively, and deeply flavorful.
There is a little something intensely enjoyable about having packs of immediate ramen and throwing away the seasonings (or conserving them for afterwards experimentation — shake them above ready rice or popcorn) for an straightforward, luxe Tuesday night time evening meal of ramen with charred scallions, environmentally friendly beans and chile oil. So do that!
Then, on Wednesday, take yet another run at the pizza-adjacent, with these tortilla pizzas topped with a streamlined Greek salad and garlic-yogurt sauce.
For Thursday’s supper, I’d like to suggest these crispy rooster thighs with peppers, capers and olives, the chicken pressed into the pan underneath a weighted skillet so that it browns beautifully, a system identified in Italy as cooking “al mattone” and in the United States as “under a brick.”
And on Friday, head into the weekend with blackened fish served more than speedy grits, the fish fried in oil relatively than seared in a dry pan for large flavor and — a substantial reward for those people with no vent previously mentioned the stove — a ton less smoke in the kitchen.
