Chilean Sea Bass inspired by Jurassic Park

Fun fact: Chilean sea bass was nearly fished into extinction after its mere mention in Jurassic Park! That's actually not a very fun fact. That's kinda messed up. While still overfished, it can be acquired legally - while fetching a price of $30/lb. A delicious (and less expensive) alternative is black cod!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato

  • 3 Tbsp Cornstarch

  • Water (to add to cornstarch slowly until a slurry forms)

  • Vegetable oil (enough to fill a pan for deep frying)

  • Kosher salt

  • 3 evenly-sized Chilean Sea Bass fillets (or Black Cod as a cheaper alternative)

  • 2 cups green beans

  • 1 Tbsp rosemary

  • 1 small shallot

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • ½ cup chicken stock

  • Chopped parsley

  • Juice of ½ a lemon

  • Black pepper

  • 2 Tbsp butter

Method

  1. Start by peeling and spiralizing your sweet potato. In a bowl combine cornstarch and water until it makes a slurry. Add your spiralized sweet potatoes and mix until fully coated.

  2. Heat some vegetable oil in a deep skillet to 350°F and drop in your sweet potatoes. Fry for 3-5 minutes. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate. Separate the sweet potatoes as best you can and season with salt. Set aside.

  3. Par-boil your green beans for about 3 minutes and then shock in an ice bath. Set aside.

  4. Finely chop 1 Tbsp of fresh rosemary and 1 small shallot. Set aside. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half and set them aside as well.

  5. Preheat a skillet over medium high heat. Add some vegetable oil to the pan and then add your Chilean sea bass, skin side down, to the pan. Once it’s brown on the skin side, flip and then place in a 400°F oven until it reaches an internal temperature of 135°F.

  6. Remove the fish from the pan and set aside. Dab away some of the excess fat from the pan and over a medium heat add shallots and sauté for about 1 minute before adding ½ cup of dry white wine and ½ cup of chicken stock. Whisk until all the fond is off the bottom of the pan.

  7. Add chopped rosemary and then simmer to reduce by about half. Add some chopped parsley and the juice of ½ a lemon. Stir to combine.

  8. Add chilled green beans to the sauce. Season with salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes. Remove green beans set aside.

  9. Remove the pan from heat. Add 2 Tbsp of butter to the sauce and stir to combine.

  10. On a plate add your lemon jus and top with green beans. Slice your sea bass into strips and add in between green beans. Add your halved cherry tomatoes and top with fried sweet potato straws.

  11. Serve and enjoy!

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

Charlie Brown and Snoopy are staples for the Holidays, and their Thanksgiving feast is no different. Turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. What else do you really need for Thanksgiving?

 

Ingredients

Turkey

  • 1 whole turkey

  • ¼ cup kosher salt

  • 1 Tbsp black pepper

  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder

  • Bacon

  • Turnips

  • Parsnips

  • Carrots

  • Pearl red onions

  • Vegetable oil

  • Clarified butter


Pumpkin Pie

Pie Crust

  • 6 ¼ ounces all purpose flour

  • 10 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 1 Tbsp sugar

  • 3 ½ Tbsp ice water

  • Pie weight (I went with brown rice)

Pie Filling

  • 1 sugar pie pumpkin

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1-2 Tbsp maple syrup

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • 2 tsp ground ginger

  • ¼ tsp allspice

  • ¼ tsp ground cloves

  • Grated nutmeg

  • ½ cup milk

  • ¾ cup heavy cream

  • 4 eggs

Whipped Cream

  • Sugar

  • Heavy Whipping Cream

  • Vanilla extract (optional)


Stuffing

  • ¾ loaf white bread

  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter

  • 1 spanish onion, finely chopped

  • 2 ribs of celery

  • 1 Tbsp sage

  • 1 tsp thyme

  • 1 tsp rosemary

  • 1 Tbsp parsley

  • About 1 cup turkey stock, divided into ¼ cup and ⅔ of a cup

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Cheese cloth

  • 1 egg, beaten

Method

Turkey

  1. First, loosen the skin from the turkey. Combine ¼ cup of kosher salt with 1 Tbsp of black pepper. Rub about ¾ of that mixture under the skin. Then add 1 ½ tsp of baking soda to the salt and pepper mixture and cover the outside of the turkey.

  2. Once fully coated, let rest uncovered in the fridge for 24 hours.

  3. Line the inside of the turkey with a few layers of cheesecloth. Add your stuffing (recipe below) and then tie the cheesecloth shut. Also tie the legs.

  4. Roll 4 large cylinders of aluminum foil. Place three of them widthwise and 1 lengthwise onto your pan - this will hold the turkey up.

  5. Place the turkey breast-side down onto the cylinders and top the turkey with 1 pack of bacon. Cook in a preheated 325°F oven. When the turkey has reached 130°F, remove from the oven.

  6. Remove bacon from the turkey.

  7. While the turkey cooks, chop up your turnips, parsnips, and carrots and add them to a bowl along with your red pearl onions. Season with salt and pepper and top with vegetable oil. Toss to combine.

  8. On a rimmed baking sheet add your turnip, parsnip, carrot and onion mixture and place a wire rack on top.

  9. The turkey should already be cooked to 130°F. Flip turkey so it’s breast-side up and place on the wire rack on top of the vegetable mixture.

  10. Remove stuffing from the turkey and then brush down turkey with clarified butter.

  11. Place back in the oven, and increase the temperature to 400°F and cook for an additional 45 minutes, or until the thickest part of the breast registers 160°F.

  12. Remove from oven and let the turkey rest for 30 minutes.

  13. Strain any juice in the baking sheet to help make gravy.

  14. Place the tray of veggies back in the oven for 20 minutes.

  15. Carve the turkey and serve with everything else and enjoy!


Stuffing

  1. Dice ¾ of a loaf of white sandwich bread. Cook in a 225°F oven for one hour, stirring occasionally.

  2. In a high-walled sauté pan add: 1 Spanish onion (finely chopped) along with 2 chopped ribs of celery. Cook for about 2 minutes before adding 1 Tbsp sage, 1 tsp thyme, and 1 tsp of rosemary. Cook for 2 more minutes.

  3. In a large bowl add your toasted bread along with your onion celery mixture plus 1 Tbsp of parsley and ⅔ cup of turkey stock. Mix to combine and season with salt and pepper.

  4. Insert cheesecloth into the cavity of the turkey and then add as much stuffing as you can fit. (It should not all fit)

  5. Remove stuffing when the turkey has reached 130°F and combine with the reserved stuffing. In a mixing bowl combine 1 egg with ¼ cup of turkey stock and beat to combine before adding to stuffing mixture. Stir to combine.

  6. Butter a casserole dish and then add stuffing evenly.

  7. Once the turkey is removed from the oven, place the stuffing in the oven and cook for about 20 minutes.


Pumpkin Pie

Crust

  1. In a food processor combine 6 ¼ ounces of all purpose flour along with 10 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, ½ tsp of salt, and 1 Tbsp of sugar. Process to combine.

  2. Add the mixture to a bowl along with 3 ½ Tbsp of ice water. Gently fold to combine.

  6. Par bake crust for 15 minutes at 400°F on a preheated pizza stone in the oven.

Pie Filling

  1. Slice open 1 sugar pie pumpkin. Scoop out the insides and place face-down on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast at 325°F for one hour.

  2. Remove from the oven and peel the skin off. Let cool for 2 minutes.

  3. Add 2 cups of pumpkin to a food processor along with 1 cup of packed brown sugar and 1-2 Tbsp of maple syrup. Process for about 90 seconds or until smooth.

  4. Next add 2 tsp of cinnamon, 2 tsp of ground ginger, ¼ tsp each of allspice and ground cloves, a generous grating of nutmeg, ½ a cup of milk, ¾ of a cup of heavy cream, and 4 eggs. Process for 1 minute or until smooth.

Eggs Florentine inspired by Frasier

This week, we return once again to the hallowed halls of the fancy foods of Frasier. Instead of the brothers Crane, however, we turn to Lilith Sternin for inspiration as we recreate her postcoital breakfast of choice, eggs florentine - even if it's slathered in ketchup and devoured in the bathroom.

 

Ingredients

For English Muffins

  • 1 packet instant yeast

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • ½ cup of milk

  • 325 grams bread flour, sifted

  • ½ cup water

  • ¼ tsp baking powder

  • ¼ tsp baking soda

  • Cornmeal

  • Water


For the Spinach

  • Spinach

  • 1 clove garlic

  • Butter

  • Salt

  • Pepper


For the Eggs

  • 2 eggs

For the Hollandaise

  • 4 egg yolks

  • Juice of ½ lemon

  • 1 tsp dijon mustard

  • 1 tsp hot sauce

  • 1 stick butter, melted

Method

  1. In a small bowl combine 1 packet of instant yeast along with 1 tsp of sugar and whisk to combine before adding ½ cup of 110°F milk. Whisk to combine and set aside for 10 minutes.

  2. Add 325 grams of sifted bread flour to a stand mixer along with the yeast mixture and ½ cup of water, ¼ tsp baking powder, and ¼ tsp baking soda. Mix for 2-3 minutes with paddle attachment, and then switch out paddle attachment for the dough hook. Mix on medium-low for 20 minutes.

  3. Remove dough from mixer, form into a ball and place in a well-oiled bowl, cover and let rise for at least 90 minutes or until doubled in size.

  4. Flour your work surface and turn out dough.

  5. Roll out to about ½ inch thick and then cut out 6 rounds using a biscuit cutter. Place on a rimmed baking sheet that is lined with cornmeal. Cover and let rise for about 30 minutes.

  6. Warm a skillet over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add some oil, and then add your english muffins, 3 at a time making sure they stay as close to the center as possible. Give them a good spritz with water so they can rise a little more. Cook for about 3 minutes and then check every minute for about 5 minutes until they are golden brown on one side and then flip. Cook for an additional 4-5 minutes on the other side or until the internal temperature reaches 205-210°F. Place on a wire rack to cool and set aside.

  7. In another pan combine some spinach with one clove of minced garlic, butter, salt and pepper. Sauté for a few minutes.

  8. While spinach is cooking, poach two eggs. See my poached egg method here.

  9. In a blender add 4 egg yolks, the juice of one lemon, 1 tsp of dijon mustard, and 1 tsp of hot sauce. Blend to combine for 10 seconds.

  10. Melt one stick of butter. While everything is mixing in the blender SLOWLY add hot butter to the mixture until it forms a creamy sauce.

  11. Cut your english muffin in half and toast. Place face-up on a plate and top with spinach, poached egg, and hollandaise.

  12. Serve and enjoy!
