From "Zingerman's Guide to Good Eating" (a cookbook I HIGHLY recommend), this is an absolutely delicious Catalan garlic toast soaked with tomato juices and drizzled with olive oil and sea salt! It can be topped with chopped olives, capers, anchovies or serrano ham and is incredibly wonderful when the bread is grilled and a good olive oil is used. And, this is a good way to use up fresh tomatoes that are getting a little past their prime.
This recipe is healthy, simple, and elegant enough for a party. It originally came from a restaurant in the Napa Valley of California. This cooks fast, so have the rest of your dishes ready or nearly ready by the time you put the fish in the oven. I have used tilapia but any white fish fillets should work.
I love to get recipe cards at the store and that's where this easy one comes from. This is actually prepared by broiling. This is a light recipe. The card states that halibut is an excellent source of vitamin B12, and it is a good source of niacin which keeps your body building red blood cells.
This is the way my mother made a very tasty salad for us, mostly in the summertime. We didn't have the English cucumbers that are available now but use them if you wish. The chives grew in our Chicago suburb garden and volunteered every year -- right next to the old fashioned green rhubarb. The tomatoes came from our "Victory Garden" -- anyone remember those? What memories this salad evokes!
