grouper

I was invited to dinner at the house of some friends.  I knew I was in for some good company, but I had no idea what a great grillmaster would be preparing some amazing fish!  I’ll confess that I didn’t get his recipe, but I looked around on the internet and mycookocracy.com had a yummy sounding recipe.  Not only was the grouper grilled, but so was the mangrove snapper (with a greek seasoning rub) and the asparagus (with olive oil, salt and pepper and a little garlic powder).   Our grillmaster also cooked over charcoal, so the flavors were amped up!

My Cookocracy’s recipe:

4 pieces salmon marinated in teriyaki wasabi ginger sauce – recipe follows.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Magic.  Amazing.  Delicious.  We ate it with brown rice and caramelized onions and peppers.

Teriyaki Wasabi Ginger Sauce:

  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1¼ cups brown sugar
  • ¼ cup each sweet sherry and pineapple juice
  • ¼ cup agave syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger, grated
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic, grated
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste

trout and sweet potato hash

4 trout filets

1 Tbsp. dijon mustard

2 Tbsp. softened butter

1 Tbsp. pesto

Pinch salt and pepper

—-

4 sweet potatoes, cut into small cubes

1/2 yellow pepper, cut into small cubes

1/2 green pepper, cut into small cubes

1/2 sweet onion, cut into small cubes

olive oil

butter

Place oil and butter in large skillet (that has a lid) on medium heat.  Add in cubed sweet potatoes.  Top with peppers and onion.  Season and cover.  Do not stir!

Meanwhile, place trout on baking sheet lined with foil.

Mix melted butter, mustard, pesto, and salt and pepper.

Spread butter mixture evenly over trout filets.

Let fish come to room temperature while potatoes cook.

Bake fish for 15 minutes at 350F while potatoes continue to cook.

Five minutes before fish will be done, remove lid on sweet potatoes and cook until caramelized.

The fish and hash should finish at the same time.  The fish is done as soon as it flakes with a fork.

Bake

Sprinkle flavored salt and pepper liberally on both sides of tuna steaks.  Rub with a little olive oil blend and let sit on a plate until it reaches room temperature.  I topped mine off with a little balsamic glaze and miso ginger honey dressing.  Teriyaki is also good.

Heat skillet with a little coconut or red palm oil  to high heat, almost to smoking.

Sear tuna on first side until cooked almost halfway up the sides.

Turn and sear other side.

Refrigerate to allow to harden again.

Place trout on sprayed cookie sheet.  Crumble butter mixture over fillets.
