This week, as I was heaving this behemoth fish into the oven, I thought of you all. Specifically, I wondered what you have been cooking. Surely I’m not the only one going through groceries like a madwoman?!
I’ve been doing some more recipe testing for my memoir COOKING MY WAY HOME (National Geographic, Oct 2014). There will be 29 recipes in the book, including this Fire-Roasted Fish from the Maldives. With chili peppers, onion, and curry leaves, it’s a flavor explosion!
Just curious (since I’m feeling chatty) — have you ever roasted a whole fish? Why or why not?
And, just because I couldn’t believe the size of this thing — anyone want to guess how many pounds this grouper is?
Even without the recipe testing, I still think I’d be cooking like crazy. After all, it’s cold outside.
And there’s no better pairing for cold air than something hot from the oven.
I care about you and this community: if you’re cooking, too, I want to hear about it!
