Happy Saturday Great Winos!!!!!
What's on the smoker, and what's in your glass for this weekend?
While I may smoke something tomorrow; I did grill my first "Wolf Fish" (a mysterious "first" for me and which I found in the frozen section of Trader Joe's no less) and paired with White Burgundy! (My favorite genre of wine on this earth)!!!
I made a fabulous dry rub of celery seed, blue Persian sea salt, black pepper, herbs de Provence, black & tan sesame seeds, and dehydrated garlic flakes... (and rubbed the fish in that and grilled it four minutes on the flesh side and 8 minutes on the skin side, as I LOVE fish skin more than any fish itself) and it was so good!
I'd thawed some Trader Joe's frozen haricots vert (which I just love) and rubbed that with the dry rub before tossing it on grill grates too; and even sliced their raw heirloom tomatoes and shallots, and tossed it through the same...
Once plating, I drizzled olive oil and a little more sea salt, and black pepper, and then sat down to something INCREDIBLE!
I had no idea that Wolf Fish was so delicious - skin and all - and that it was a White Burgundy pairing that was just WAITING to so beautifully thus happen; and that the whole meal was from Trader Joe's even; and mostly frozen! What a surprisingly delicious and lovely day!
OK, forgive the smoke-free bit, on a smoker site, but more smoke to come! And share your weekend eats and drinks here too! Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Leah
