The fish was covered on the flesh side with the mustard glaze (moutarde a l'ancienne + creme fraiche and plenty of chives - very loosely based on a recipe from Steven Raichlen that originally called for mayonnaise and dill). It was cooked skin-side down for about 10 -15 minutes on the grill.
The cauliflower was sliced, tossed with olive oil, and roasted in the oven.

I have been away, too. I like the new look, and ease of adding photos.
Been away for a while, fantastic stuff everyone!
Breakfast was poached eggs on toast
And dinner on a hot day was tuna sashimi with fresh radish pickles.
It was very filling, and not a gram of fat!

To maintain my family tradition of eating gnocchi every 29th of the month today we had Gnocchi with Pancetta & Peas Cream Sauce.
Many believe the tale of the gnocchi of fortune is the hope and the opportunity to share a meal with friends and family and bring good fortune.
The ritual is that you put a bill of any value under the dish with gnocchi. Then stand up and and eat seven pieces of gnocchi. For each gnocchi, make a different wish. Then sit back and enjoy the rest of the dish, preferably with a good Italian wine and good company.
Does anyone else shares the same tradition?

For Memorial Day (USA):
A fine gentleman generously sent me some special rub (Mad Hunky). This is experimentations in:
- Trying out the rub in various ways in three dishes, country style pork ribs, St. Louis pork ribs, and a crawfish dish.
- Finding out, side by side which rib of the two is my preference.
The salad is lily bulbs with jicama.
The MH Rub worked beautifully in all three dishes.
And, to all those brave men and women who protected our freedom, I honor you on this Memorial Day.
