go fish




Poached cod with a red pepper butter, simple, satisfying and something I have been making for years and years and years.



Farfalle soup for those sick days, except this one was 'fused' it has kombu.



Whole fried 'mullet' with mystery greens, yet these were not the oh so mysterious ones and an appreciated reader informed me what the other ones were - chrysanthemum, or 'tong ho' - thanks [eating club]vancouver!

Gorgeous...a work of art! Love, love, love the colors.

TavoLini said...

I love the mystery greens.

Is mullet one the "oily" fish? I've never had it- thought it was a hairstyle.... :)

buffalodick said...

Forgot- great looking presentation!

doggybloggy said...

micky-t: I have to agree!

harmony: thanks so much harmony you make my day!

tavolini: chinatown is good for anything 'mystery' thats for sure.

buff: Mullet are not oily and they are those fish you see jumping in the surf(ocean)whenever a larger fish is in the area - as for oily you might be thinking of Mackerel

The cod looks amazing. Great looking sauce.

Marjie said...

Um, my food never looks that pretty. I don't have the time. But good counts, right?

Anette said...

You are in fish heaven! That cod looks divine!

Dawn said...

red pepper butter? Mmmm, damn that sounds good!

Jill said...

I bet the cod dish would be great with tuna as well. So pretty!

doggybloggy said...

lisaiscooking: thanks - it is a nice light sauce that is heavy with flavor

marjie: its like doing card tricks - it doesnt take any time and its all sleight of hand

anette: total fish heaven -

dawn: damn, dawn is right!

jill: I would have to do a different sauce with tuna - some kind of wasabi thing....

jesse said...

Oooo beautiful, beautiful fillet of cod... jump into my open mouth... NOW!

Hmm, did that sound wrong? =X

Ulla said...

Nice! Poached fish is so underrated!
Where do you get your cod?

doggybloggy said...

jesse: that sounds perfectly fine by me..but you know me.....

ulla: I am afraid to say for fear that there is some cod committee out there...I want to say its 'grass fed' but you would see right through that one....

Jenn said...

That poached cod looks devine. Also the crust on the fried mullet... Nice and crisp! Yum!

5 Star Foodie said...

The cod looks perfectly flaky and sounds wonderful with the red pepper butter - very nice!

The Diva on a Diet said...

You weren't kidding ... it is a fishy week! That poached fish and sauce look divine, doggy. And, I'm wishing I had some of that soup right this minute.

Feeling better?

doggybloggy said...

jenn: I could eat fired fish everyday and it would be like my first time....

five star: cod takes seconds to cook - any longer and those flakes fall apart....

diva: there is still one more coming...

The Diva on a Diet said...

I almost forgot ... the chrysanthemum ... how did they taste? Spicy? Bitter? I'm curious.

The Blonde Duck said...

That looks really good!

Maggie said...

They all look wonderful but the cod in the butter sauce with the lime has me, yum!

snugs said...

it all looks great, but I am with Maggie, I want the cod!

doggybloggy said...

diva: spicy and bitter but not in a bad way

TBD: hot water and a little lime and its poached

maggie: my vote all the way

snugs: long time favorite, I have been poaching cod since I was 18...why does that make sense? It doesnt.

Creative Mish said...

speaking of fish. I'm getting fishing fever... I'm hoping the weather will warm up soon and the crappie will start spawning! They're the best!

lk said...

I want that soup right now!

Beth said...

Tanya Kristine said...

Anything called mullet is cool with us.

Tangled Noodle said...

I want it all! If not, I'll be content with a bowl of that red pepper butter.
