    I made grilled eggplant w my MIL's recipe.lzg925b1nuyw.jpg

    @snowflake954 That eggplant looks amazing!

    Thanks! In Italy my husband's mother made this. It's a family recipe from Puglia. Ask your husband if he's ever seen it.

    Hi @snowflake954 😉!

    This made his day. He is missing the produce back home. To him, nothing beats the melanzane Or carciofi from his Nonna Mafalda’s garden.

    He asked if it is melanzane al pesto? Menta?

    🤗

    Nope. I grilled the slices of eggplant (melanzane) and salted them. I then layered them w EVOO, garlic, red pepper flakes (peperoncino), parsley, and a spray of vinegar---repeat--repeat. I called my husband's cousin to be sure I remembered how my MIL made them. She told me that they also use mint (mentucchio) instead of parsely.

    Yum!!!! That was parsley!!!!! Lol

    Starter of griddled baby gem with a drizzle of leftover caesar dressing from last week's Nicoise. Main of Thai beef green curry with roast courgette and basmati rice.

    Went out to eat tonight.

    Rack of lamb and Branzino. The Branzino was baked in parchment paper and it was soooo good. Going to have to try baking in parchment next.

    I always do mine in parchment paper--branzino or orate or rombo. It comes out perfectly. I put the cleaned fish on the parchment paper with the scales still on, then I staple the ends of the paper loosely (I use generous pieces of parchment) on top. I don't put oil or salt or anything on it. Just plain. After half an hour in a very hot oven--done. At that point I take out the fillets, portion it out, and everyone puts on what they want. The fish has it's own oil, so I don't add any. p59unrj5ur7p.jpg

    I prefer mine with salt and lemon. However, you need good quality fresh fish for this.

    Pan fried sea bass topped with gremolata on tinned beans warmed up in shellfish bisque we had in the freezer. Sauteed spinach on the side.

    Grilled grass fed beef patty. Slaw of cabbage, edamame, mango, green onion and cilantro with a dressing of rice wine vinegar, miso, sesame oil, mint and a bit of tahini and soy sauce to cut the tartness because I didn't have enough miso. I had intended to pair grilled steak with this slaw but the small grocery I went to didn't have any today so I was forced to change plans and went with the ground beef instead. Steak would have worked better with it but overall the flavors were good.
