One Hundred Beers of Solitude-Crusted Lingcod #BlendsBash #Sponsored

Earlier this summer, my contact at The Book Club Cookbook emailed, offering me a few new spice blends to participate in their 2020 #BlendsBash. You betcha! Last month I shared a recipe using their smoked tea rub; you can see that in my The Secret Life of Teas Braised Duck Legs.


The second blend I picked was One Hundred Beers of Solitude, a play one the novel by Gabriel García Márquez: One Hundred Years of Solitude. I read that in high school, but haven't since. I might have to pick it up again.

This blend includes: honey, sea salt, citric acid, lemon, grapefruit, lime juice powder, orange juice powder, orange, black pepper, basil, cascade hops. And it was combination of citrus and hops that made me think of seafood. And when I went to the market the day I was making this, the fish monger suggested local-caught lingcod. Done!

Ingredients serves 4

  • 4 lingcod fillets (serving size is approximately 4 to 6 ounces per person)
  • 2 Tablespoons One Hundred Beers of Solitude spice blend*
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter, melted
  • Also needed: cast iron skillet or other heavy bottomed pan, fresh lime wedges for serving

*If you don't have the spice blend, use a combination of brown sugar, salt, citrus zest, dried basil, and black pepper.

Procedure

Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat until extremely hot, approximately 8 to 10 minutes. Melt butter in a different pan and pour most of it in a shallow bowl or dish that will hold your fillets one at a time.

Dip each fillet into melted butter, turning once to coat both sides. Sprinkle a generous teaspoon of the spice blend on the fish. Gently pat mixture onto fish. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon melted butter over the fish and place it, spice-side down. Sprinkle another teaspoon of the spice blend onto the fish and let it cook for about 2 minutes until it is nicely charred. Drizzle with another teaspoon of melted butter and flip the fillet. Cook until nicely charred.


Serve with immediately with fresh lime wedges on the side.

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
