I know I promised fish recipes but this week has been a bitch. Better late than never, right? My husband came back from the coast with 10lbs of freshly caught trout, and dang is it good! I totally forgot to photograph Tuesday’s meal for which I am lame. But tonight I made a house favorite, Emeril’s Brazilian Fish Stew. This is my second-favorite fish stew, Saturday I will make my very favorite. This one is super fast, easy and super tasty. As with all recipes, I modify for what I have on hand. Unfortunately, all my fresh CSA tomatoes got used up in an unfortunate experiment and I had to use some canned tomatoes, but that’s okay.
I love Emeril. I love his recipes. I love his restaurants. Is he a little goofy? Yes. Also, his food is fricking amazing. I used to reserve his recipes for special occasions because they were so involved (and fattening) but recently he’s been focusing on simpler, healthier fare. I get a lot of recipes from FoodNetwork.com and Emeril.com, but I also love this cookbook. I’ll be featuring another one of his recipes in a couple days.
