My friend Dee invited me to take a fish cooking class
at the Viking store with her.
I love fish and have never felt very confident
in my preparation of it.
So, why not?
We had a great time!
Above you can see a lovely Red Snapper
which we stuffed with herbs,
salt, pepper and lemons.
It was then encrusted with a salt and egg white mixture
and baked FAST!
This is Sandra, our instructor,
checking the internal temp of the salt-encrusted snapper.
It was done to a turn
and very delicious!
(To serve the Snapper, you crack the hardened salt shell,
remove it, remove the skin, head & tail of the fish,
and carefully scoop out the lovely fish.)
It was so moist and flavorful.
We also grilled Ahi Tuna on rosemary skewers.
I am used to having C do the grilling - outdoors -
but I purchased one of these stovetop grills pans
and may begin doing this indoors from time to time.
Of course we got to eat what we prepared!
Below you can see smoked salmon
served two different ways
plus the Ahi Tuna.
Everything was delicious.
I had no particular favorite
and hope to prepare them all at home.
We also prepared Potato and Chive-Crusted Cod,
and Prosciutto-Wrapped Grouper Stuffed
with Sun-Dried Tomatoes.
Dee and I don't eat meat, so our Grouper
was wrapped with Radicchio.
It was terrific.
