  • White Wine Vinegar Spanish Boquerones

    White Wine Vinegar Spanish Boquerones

    Boquerones are small, fresh anchovies. Accompanied by crisp, fresh Spanish bread, a glass of ruby-red wine or refreshing Asturian cider, they are a delight to eat. Methods for preparing boquerones tend to vary slightly. However, the basic principles are always the same. You first have to clean and fillet the fish, which is simple enough, but rather tedious until you get the hang of it. Next, you soak the fillets, either in white wine vinegar or a mixture of half vinegar and half water. The vinegar will clean and bleach the fish and also soften any remaining little bones.

    Trout Grenobloise

    Grenobloise is a classic French sauce, composed of capers, brown butter or “beurre noisette” and lemon. This recipe is for a classic dish – La Truite Grenobloise, or trout with sauce Grenobloise. Ingredients: Kosher Salt White Pepper 10 ounce filets off whole rainbow or brook trout; skin on, scaled. 1 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp butter ½ lemon, segmented, diced 1/8” (brunoise) 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice ½ tbsp capers 1 ¼ tbsp minced parsley Directions: I prefer to cook fish filets, generally, with the skin on. The skin, if properly cooked, will remain crispy while the flesh of the fish is soft and delicate. To get crispy skin, two things are important.
