Need a Fish to Match My Sauce


Recommended Posts

So... the day before yesterday I whipped up a pretty pleasant beurre blanc sauce. (It's amazing how much time you have on your hands when you ought to be studying for the bar exam :sad: ).

There still more than 1/2 of it left over and I'm soliciting seafood suggestions to match it with. A couple of caveats:

(1) I live in the Pacific NW, and while I often buy my shrimp from Florida, I prefer to get most of my fish/shellfish from closer to home.

(2) My wife and I are trying to have a baby :wub: so all of the mercury-laden fish (tuna, shark, swordfish, marlin, etc..) are off the menu.

(3) I made the sauce with a Vino Verde (about the opposite of California Chard), so it's a bit more piquant than your average beurre blanc.

With that said, please send us any of your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks for your time everybody.


Alamut was the mountain fortress of Hassan i Sabbah and the later heads of the Assassins. Alamut represents more than just a physical place, more even than a symbolic home of the movement. Alamut was with you in what you did; Alamut was in your heart from the moment of your arrival and introduction to "Heaven" until the moment you died.
