When I’m in the middle of a project, like the final round of the couch wrestling competition I’m engaged in, I hate to stop, especially to cook so I’m always hoping that The Magic Catering Service will ring the bell with a fantastic meal. Believe it or not, it has happened a few times thanks to my daughter’s thoughtful birthday gift from Amazing Clubs. Alas, no delivery this week, so I guess it’s up to me.
Now what to have with that grilled corn on the cob? Well Squirrel Circus cooked up some very fine chicken legs and I’d go with that any day of the week. Myself… I had some fresh haddock that I wanted to perk up a little but it was hot & muggy (I’m talking about my brain, not just the weather) so fast & easy it is:
Slap the fresh haddock into aluminum foil, dot with butter, sprinkle a very fine coating of Italian breadcrumbs on top, then use the handy dandy food chopper to crumble up some pecans., toss those on top, wrap that package up for 30 minutes on the grill – done! Oh wait, sure…sprinkle a little white wine on top, why not? The pecans really added a nice flavor to the fish but the “yum” factor was the Remoulade Sauce (trust me, I can’t even say the name but it’s easy & done in 8 minutes):
1/3 Cup mayonaise
1 Chopped scallion or minced onions to taste
1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
1/2 Teaspoon fresh lemon
2 Tablespoons dry mustard
2 Teaspoons ketchup
1/2 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
Dash Tabasco (more if you like the zing)
Whisk it all together…done! This gives you plenty for 2 people and is great for fish & super on crabcakes.
