It rained most of the day here today and we had brutal thunderstorms overnight. Parts of our metro area got 7 inches of rain today and we are currently under flood watches. This evening I made a quick and simple meal for dinner. Youngest son came for dinner and his two favorite things to eat are chicken and fish...so I decided to make fish for dinner since we had chicken last night. I picked up some beautiful wild caught fillet of sole for dinner. I very lightly dusted both sides with blanched almond flour and a little sea salt and sauteed it in Kerrygold's Garlic & Herb Butter
. If you haven't tried it before, it is a very heavily herbed stick of their butter and is perfect for sauteing a delicate fish like sole in. I heated a large nonstick skillet on medium high heat and added a couple tablespoons of the garlic herb butter and sauteed the super thin sole fillets for about 1 to 2 minutes per side and then squeezed on a little fresh lemon juice. In a separate medium skillet, I melted another tablespoon of the garlic herb butter and sauteed fresh sliced mushrooms and served the sole topped with the seasoned mushrooms. I steamed some fresh broccoli to go with our meal as well as heated up leftover Golden Cheddar Biscuits
I made Thursday evening. It was a quick, simple and delicious meal. I snapped a couple photos for you to see below. Enjoy!
I picked up some Kerrygold garlic & herb butter just the other day and wondered how I might use it. Pan Sauteed Fillet of Sole and sauteed mushrooms ... perfect!
Seven inches of rain, you say!
Wow! Hope you stayed high and dry!
Hi CyberSis! I hope you enjoy that flavored butter -- it is good just melted on cooked veggies too. Yes, that's a lot of rain, isn't it??? So far, so good. It's sunny today but more rain on the way for tomorrow -- no deficit of rain here this spring! :-)
Hi GG, could you please send some rain to California? It is hard for me to go month after month without it. I so miss the fragrance in the air after a rain fall. Our skies are mostly cloudless during the summer, quite boring as I am a lover of them. But I should not complain, other wise it is quite wonderful to live here. The best climate from all the countries I lived in actually, since I am so heat-intolerant. That is getting worse with age! But what is not?
A propos cellar- that can be a curse too, one tends to fill it up over the years. Our house is in need of retro-fitting(earthquakes) and I have the difficult task of getting rid of" my beloved stuff".
Be well and safe CC! Thank you for always helping me out!
Barbara from California.
Hi GG, just wanted to tell you that I made the "herb" butter in my food processor. I *googeled* the ingredients and voila prepared it in 5 minutes!
I do the same with cream cheese, just garlic, parsley and black pepper. Tastes like *Alouette*.
Take care, Barbara.
Hi Barbara! What a great idea -- whipping up both the herbed butter and cream cheese in the food processor. Why it is that sometimes it is the simplest things we overlook sometimes? I bet it is delicious and would be a great way to use up extra fresh herbs before they go bad! You could season it so many different ways, too! If I could send rain your way, I would...but I do envy your climate. I loved the climate in San Diego and San Francisco. It has been over 10 years since I visited California -- I remember we went in July and it was so cold in San Francisco that we had to buy sweatshirts and jackets!!! July here is sweltering hot and muggy -- we were quite surprised by how beautiful the temperature was there in the summer. It is also a very beautiful state. I understand completely about not wanting to get rid of our beloved belongings -- it is hard. I know that my kids probably won't even be interested in most of my belongings when I'm gone...but they hold lots of sentimental value for me, so I keep them. Thanks for the great idea about making your own herb butter and cream cheese...that would be fun to top different grilled meats or fresh veggies with! Take care. :-)
Hi GG, yes it can be cold and foggy in San Francisco, but when you leave the city and drive just 10 miles you will find a totally different climate, I always feel sorry for the shivering tourists.
Be well, your Barbara.
P.S. No need to comment, I know how busy you are!
