Good Morning You Sweet Smoked Cookies & Chops!!! And here's to a terrific TUESDAY today, and for all!!
Amid moving decisions, and all that that entails, I took a moment this morning (grizzly photo aside) to look at a fabulous sunrise, and smoke up an unassuming, simple albeit healthful COD SALAD... And it was lovely!
Using pistachio shells as chips, and firing up my little gas smoker for 15 minutes on high, I smoked some cod and portabella mushrooms...
Meanwhile, I hollowed out part of zucchinis, and layered some lovely marinated WHITE ANCHOVIES into them, and dusted that with smoked paprika, as a "little snack" to enjoy while awaiting my fish...
Actually, where is dls1? His global savvy indeed has inspired these "Boquerone Boats" or prompted me to whip up a snack using these great chovies! The power of suggestion! Delicious stuff.
Meanwhile, I chopped garlic, pulled that fish - which fell apart into salad hunks as I expected it would (so soft) and whisked apple cider vinegar and olive oil for a dressing over the salad...
Succulent, simple, healthful, melt apart, delicate, and delectable cod salad does work for me on this day!
And I opened Crémant, (sparkling wine), because it's "Wine O'clock" when moving tasks, plans, and cleaning are involved, and since I'm in for the day and not driving anywhere, it is a great day to dine early and thus here is to an "Oh My Cod" kind of fabulous and magical day!
Meanwhile, I toast to YOU! And to "TODAY!"
So Cheers to you all and to this Tuesday! - Leah
