Pescado al Horno con Gambas #BakingBloggers


This month, Sue of Palatable Pastime told the Baking Bloggers that for May: "We'll be baking Spanish cuisine this month- anything goes, sweet or savory, baked goods, desserts, side dishes, entree,  you name it, as long as it is Spanish and some portion of the recipe is baked." Here's the #BakingBloggers Spanish-inspired baking party.

Pescado al Horno con Gambas

As I usually do, when I have a Spanish cooking project to research, I sent a message to good friends who are Spanish, but live here for now. Susana pointed me towards Merluza rellena de setas y gambas, but D is mushroom-averse. Weird kid! Then she gave me a link to Bacalao al horno con almejas y gambas since it didn't have mushrooms. And, as usual, I didn't follow either recipe but used it as inspiration for my own version: Pescado al Horno con Gambas, Fish in the Oven with Shrimp.The night that I served this, we paired it with leftover Attems Ramato Pinot Grigio 2017. 


Ingredients serves 4
  • potatoes, washed, dried, and thickly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer)
  • olive oil, as needed
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 4 fillets of fish (I used a local rockfish)
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed
  • 1 t sweet paprika
  • 2 to 3 T white wine
  • 1 T olive oil
 Procedure

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Place shrimp, garlic, sweet paprika, white wine, and 1 T olive oil in a small mixing bowl. Toss to coat and let marinate while you are cooking and preparing everything else.

Place potato slices on a parchment paper or silicone mat-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes.


Remove tray from the oven and place the fish fillets on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and return the sheetpan to the oven. Roast for 4 to 5 minutes. The fish should be opaque, but not fully cooked.


Remove the shrimp from the marinade and place them on top of the fish. Return the tray to the oven and roast for another 8 to 10 minutes. Both the shrimp and the fish should be fully cooked.


Remove from the oven and serve hot.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
