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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
