I came to the Bay Area CA in 1975 and the first Fish Market was opened on El Camino Real in Palo Alto CA the next year in 1976. It was only 5 minutes from work and I started going to the Fish Market often for lunch. The second Fish Market was opened in early 80's also in my neighborhood, Santa Clara. Since then, they have expanded to the Socal area. I've always loved their seafood selection. So fresh, but I also loved few other offerings such as this Cheezy Garlic Bread, their coleslaw and potatoes au gratin. This recipe comes from their own cookbook. Apparently this bread was served mainly for their employees long before it hit the menu. In the book, this bread is made with 3 types of sauces ie garlic puree, aioli sauce and finally Parmesan sauce that adds garlic puree and aioli sauce. I streamlined the procedure for easier recipe.
- 1 loaf sourdough bread, sliced in half lengthwise
- 10 garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons parsley, minced
- 1⁄3 cup green onion, minced
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Finely mince garlic in a food processor with olive oil or alternatively finely mince garlic and mix olive oil in to incorporate well. Only use 1 T garlic puree for this recipe and freeze the rest in a small container for other uses or later use. Once frozen, it can be easily scooped out.
- Combine 1 T garlic puree from above, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, parsley, and green onion. Mix well.
- Slice the bread lengthwise in half and liberally spread the Parmesan cheese mixture on the cut side of the bread.
- Bake at 425 F for about 9-10 minutes until brown and crusty.
