Glazed Parsnips

Parsnips look like white carrots and are very sweet. They have a center core which softens completely in chicken soup. In this recipe, I boil them until they are crisp-tender. The outside of the parsnips become soft; but the core, depending on how thick it is, remains hard. I like […]

Halibut Salad

I grew up eating Halibut Salad. It was on our Thursday rotation of fish meals. Halibut is a firm white fleshed fish that has a very mild flavor. It’s actually whiter than other white fleshed fish like snapper or flounder. I think that’s what makes it so pretty as a […]

Goujons de Sole

Goujons de Sole are small pieces of Sole that are dipped in fritter batter and fried in hot oil. I had always considered them to be a French creation; until I learned differently. Fried fish was originally brought to England by Portuguese Sephardic Jews in the 16th century. As Marranos, […]
