After a beautiful weekend full of a little bit of indulgences it's time to treat your body good with a healthy comfort food. This trout will send your taste buds into orbit!
Baked Trout 1 pound trout - cut into three pieces 1/2 cup white wine
Mustard Sauce 2 tbsp capers 2 tbsp dijon style mustard 1 cup white whine 1/2 tsp kosher salt 1/2 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a tin foil lined baking dish place the trout with 1/2 cup white wine. Bake for 10 minutes to lightly steam the fish.
Simmer all ingredients for the mustard sauce in a little sauce pan. Once the fish has been cooked, plate the fish and spoon the sauce over. Very good comfort food! (served here with wilted swiss chard and parsleyed cannelini beans)
Food is so intriguing. I’ve always loved to cook whether it’s casual and simple or complicated and elegant. After living in the Midwestern United States all my life I find myself jumping between All-American foods and foods from other cultures. There is definitely a sense of comfort with cooking and enjoying food that I’ve grown up with.
I have a voracious curiosity to learn about all cultures, especially the Middle East/Mediterranean, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai foods. I’ve learned that a simple curry dish or an Asian dumpling can transform your mood and be just as much of a comfort food as the foods you’ve known you’re whole life.
It is fascinating to me how each culture has such a diversity of ingredients, and when used with different combinations and cooking techniques you can easily transform the same few ingredients into a multitude of dishes. The unfamiliar, the diverse ingredients and techniques, can be intimidating to many people. I’ve created this blog to chronicle and share my explorations in the kitchen so that hopefully you will want to start experimenting in your kitchen.
