Marvelous Monday wishes to all, and here's a huge CHEERS with great sentiments for this new week!
I just smoked a super "quickie" Monday lunch, of simple whiting, eggplant, and onion, and I'm downright startled at how terrific it genuinely was!
Unfortunately the whiting didn't have heads on, (they came beheaded already in the store, though I'd prefer it whole and intact), but they were delicious nonetheless, and I munched right through it all, at least enjoying the crispy tail, the bones, and so it goes!
Happy new week! Make it better than last! Cheers and warm wishes, Leah
Layering the fish over sliced eggplant, I put that on the "MINI" thing/smoker, for 20 minutes. (More fish, eggplant slices, and some onion are on a lower little rack). I sprayed everything with grapeseed oil first, via my little mister can that I fill with oil.
Serving this with chopped kale, I simply seasoned at the table with olive oil drizzled over the whole thing, sprinkled red pepper flakes, and some Fleur de Sel sea salt, and that was it!
This was just smoldery and delicious - a real surprise and/or much better than expected! The eggplant was a little "al dente" and perhaps if keeping it all on, and just 5 minutes more, this would have resulted in something undeniably superb. However, not a bad way to start the week! I loved it!
And I'm a "good eater," as one can see, and with only a couple of tiny stray sharp bones, and dregs of chopped kale, that didn't make it into my system! Otherwise, it was delightful!
