Frivolous Friday!! Dinner 11/22/13

soooo,fellow gastronauts,addie,tax & i were having a chin wag the other morning & extolling the virtues & delights of smoked herrings,haddock,mackerel & all things fishy.somewhere in all of that,my smoked mackerel dauphinoise entered said conversation:
Harry's Smoked Mackerel Dauphinoise
i thunk "not made that for a while" then i thunk"think outside the box mate,try something different" so i decided to make a "deconstructed" smoked mackerel dauphinoise,using gnocchi instead.only real difference in the ingredients is that i left out the gruyere cheese that i usually make a dauphinoise with & "cut" the sauce with a chug of dry pinot grigio.worked rather well,too!!
harry's deconstructed smoked mackerel dauphinoise made with fresh gnocchi & broccoli.ice cold "gwynt y ddraig" award winning welsh cider colder than a rhondda valley winters day.brrrrrrrrr!

Typical laundry and cleaning Friday, as usual, but that was all done by noon.

Dinner will be a bit of a mixed bag tonight. I have three quite large turkey necks I roasted to begin making stock for holiday gravy. That's all done but the turkey necks need to be eaten. They're all nice and brown and seasoned perfectly so we'll have those, some fried green tomatoes, black-eyed peas, iced tea and a generous slice of the coconut cream pie I made this morning. No doubt we'll be full.

Nice job, Harry. Too bad you're so far away from me.

That looks really good.

So, I see that "gwynt y ddraig" is the correct spelling. You didn't have your fingers on the wrong keys.

Are you sure you don't like fish? Maybe you just don't like freshwater fish or maybe just saltwater fish. I really don't care for freshwater fish, but I really like nice, fresh (or frozen) ocean fish. And smoking makes it almost something else.

I can eat a little fried and only with hush puppies, lol. I have broiled salmon for my family and couldn't make myself eat it... They love it. I think it mostly the texture i don't like.... It's just a little odd. But I don't eat lobster, crab, shrimp, or anything like that either.

I can't stand cooked salmon, but I love it smoked or gravad. Same goes for trout. Stirling didn't like salmon. He grew up in British Columbia and had been on lots of picnics where someone would fish and grill a salmon. He said it was like eating wet Kleenex. I introduced him to cold smoked salmon.
