I do most of the cooking in our household, but my husband certainly knows how. He enjoys it, too. Sometimes we cook together. When that happens there is always drinking involved! Last night was one of those nights.
We were having fish (cod), sweet potato casserole, steamed asparagus, and a tropical fruit & shrimp salad with awesome honey mustard dressing. The dressing comes from one of our favorite restaurants - Bills Seafood Restaurant in Chincoteague, Virginia. I prepared
everything but the fish. My hubby prepared that. First he drizzled a small amount of olive oil on each fillet. He then topped each fillet with Panko bread crumbs. He then placed the fish in the oven to bake until done.
Meanwhile, he prepared a white wine/cream sauce with mushrooms and shrimp in it to top off the fish. When I was newly-married and didn't know how to cook but wanted to learn, I bought a bottle each of white cooking wine and red cooking wine. I brought it
home, found a recipe I could try out and was promptly disappointed! That was when I learned to only use wine in cooking that I would pour in a glass and drink. So - we dug out a bottle of Chardonnay from the Finger Lakes in New York. Hubby poured some into
the pan to make his sauce and some was poured into our glasses to drink.
When he makes his sauces he just starts putting stuff together and they always seem to come out great. Last night was no exception! I always think to take pictures----after the meal is gone, so no photos to show what our plates looked like, but I will tell
you it was definitely restaurant quality. There was just enough left over of each thing for me to take for lunch today. I was the envy of the lunch table, and nobody believed my husband had made the sauce.
