A dish for mondays-- fish in parsilade


It is monday..and there is no accounting for the rush and crush. Though I have yet to figure out what exactly it is about Monday, that hurries everyone and everything so. I have to say it must be something in the word itself. Quite frankly I like Mondays. I start to feel as if I have the whole week to complete everything.  Things that I haven't completed in the last week, the week before that one and in all the weeks I had so far in my memory. I get stressed on Friday's when I feel very unproductive and wish it was monday all over again :)

Of course after the wine and walks in the woods on Saturday :)

But yes Monday brings hope If it is rainy, wintery, flurry or plain old sunny..here is a dish that will wake you up to Monday and everyday of this week

Sepions a la Plancha-- French makes it sound simple, delectable and fresh :)

Make a mixture of  8 cloves of garlic, half a cup of parsley, half an onion ( finely chopped) salt, pepper and 3-4 tbsf oilve oil. On a dry skillet, throw in your small fish fillets, cuttle fishes or whatever variety of mollusks you are using. Let each side 'seal' (don't move around stuff) for 1-2 mins on the hot surface, before turning them. Let the other surface seal for another 1-2 mins. Transfer the sealed fillets on to a tray, add the mixture, also called parsilade, toss and broil on low for about 6-8 mins.

Have with wine




Your Mondays just got a little slowed down

Happy eating and healthy living!
