Plantain-Crusted Mahi mahi with Pineapple Salsa from 'The Catch'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Mahi mahi takes well to tropical-themed preparations, such as this creative twist on fried fish from Ben Sargent's new cookbook, The Catch. Instead of breading or battering the fish, Sargent coats the mahi mahi fillets with a thin layer of crushed plantain chips. The chips make for an ultra-crisp coating on the fish, and add needed sweet richness to the lean fish. A big spoonful of pineapple and tomatillo salsa is a perfect accompaniment, adding bright freshness to the fried fillet. More

Sardines in Spicy Tomato Sauce from 'The Adobo Road Cookbook'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

For Marvin Gapultos, canned sardines in tomato sauce were the ultimate bachelor comfort food. These days, however, he has ditched the can for a fresh version featured in his new cookbook, The Adobo Road. His sauce is a perfect example of the melting pot of culinary influences in the Philippines: tomatoes from the Americas, smoked paprika and white wine from Spain, and fish sauce and calamansi lime juice from Southeast Asia. Fresh sardines quickly broiled atop the fragrant sauce are a step above the canned variety and just as effortless to prepare. More

Seared Panzanella Chicken from 'Portland, Oregon Chef's Table'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 1 comment

Roost's Seared Panzanella Chicken stood out amongst the rest of the poultry recipes in Portland, Oregon Chef's Table for its rustic restraint. The chicken is simply seared skin-side down and finished in the oven. The panzanella component is no more than caramelized garlic, oil-cured olives, toasted bread, parsley, and chicken jus. Each plate is finished with a whiff of arugula salad and a drizzle of extra jus. Nothing more, nothing less. More
