What's For Dinner Friday the 16th?

Just got back from buying fish and a cucumber for dinner. I have a piece of Salmon filet and SO will have a piece of haddock. The cucumber will become an Asian cucumber salad. SO didn't like the sesame oil I added to the last one so I figured I owed her one she likes.

It's been pouring rain all day. I have fruit salad leftover from lunch, ww pitas, and some black chickpea hummus. Thinking about making a fennel slaw, but right now, with the rain, I think I'd rather nap than be in the kitchen.

I'm with you on the "nap" CW.

The plan is Shephards' Pie. That's the plan. But if this danged headache that likes me oh so much doesn't leave, we'll just go with the leftover chicken. When we buy it we get a large order because the cost-per-piece goes down. Love that stuff. Hmm, I think I'll have a wing now..

How ya gonna cook it Pac?

We're going out to dinner tonight. It's a nice place at the beach with outstanding sea food the last time we were there. I seldom cook fish at home, so it will be a treat.
I have my eye on the macadamia crusted halibut.
Check out the menu..

This is my inspiration for a fennel slaw. I am thinking of adding the rest of the purple scallion and lovage leaves instead of celery leaves. Maybe a smoked salt and some radish sprouts to garnish with the fennel fronds...not playing in the kitchen--I'm on the couch thinking about taking a nap but thinking of food...wonder if counting sheep and thinking about food have the same effect? I also have a ton (well, maybe not that many) of curry leaves. Toying with the idea of frying some and adding them...not sure...

Wow! That is some sea food menu!

Nowhere in the UK is more than 75 miles from the sea but fish is not a nationwide phenomenon. Fish and chips, which if you are lucky, offers cod or haddock but often offers something nameless from the far east which tastes awful, is the norm. There are specialist fish restaurants at coastal resorts such as Rick Stein's in Cornwall but more often there are only the sort of "joints" that you visit once only.

I love fish in all its forms but I am something of an oddity. Talk to anyone and they'll say they don't like fish. The specialist fishmonger that used to be in all towns, even small ones, are few and far between and as a nation the English don't seem to understand about good fish. If you are lucky you can buy frozen prawns, squid, etc. but rarely fresh. We are very lucky in that we have a greengrocer's shop in the village where Horse lives where the owners are keen on fish and go to the wholesale fish market in Manchester every morning at 5am to choose what is particularly good that day. They had swordfish yesterday but I already had dinner organised.
