This past week we were given Mangrove snapper which Doug grilled, and Cobia which I tossed into a chowder. I've been fussing about losing a bit of weight so a nice chowder for lunch was a good start.
Easy as sauteing boiled red creamer potatoes, onions and garlic. The add some broth (chicken or vegetable) and a few pourfuls of half-n-half (or milk). I didn't measure anything.
Once the broth was warm I put the sliced up Cobia in to cook. Raw fish works better as it has a different texture once it cooks and flakes.
This is good with cooked fish too, just a different texture. I tossed in a handful of peas and added salt, Old Bay seasoning and lots of pepper.
What else was new for us to try - fried cabbage! Actually we'd tried this earlier and I'm just getting around to posting it. My friend Stacy told me about a great dinner her husband Ty makes with slabs of ham and fries the cabbage up in the drippings. We used bacon. It was great!
As a matter of fact we have more cabbage at home for a future meal plan. I'm sure this isn't exactly as her husband cooks it up but it made me a fan. I would love it if she'd start her own blog and post photos of their farm and some of her meals. C'mon, Stacy!
Here is a snap for the outdoor dining we managed to sneak in. One day, and one day only, it was just cool enough to enjoy dinner outside. Now it's back to extreme heat so we are inside but I know it's coming up, that sweet cool Fall weather!
Mojo marinated chicken, black beans and rice, salad, garlic toast and a crisp Chardonnay for me and a beer for Doug.
Can't believe it's September already. So....what's going on in your kitchen?
