It is 10.30pm on Thursday, May 7th 2015. It’s 4 years and 7 months since I started cooking from and posting weekly about Dorie Greenspan’s Around my French Table for French Fridays with Dorie. And I would be remiss to not acknowledge that I am a little emotional as I write this post. It’s the second last recipe I will post about from this book. It’s also the final fish/ seafood post from the book. The last time I will roll my eyes and sigh that it’s yet ANOTHER fish recipe and wonder why on earth we didn’t vote for more of these at the beginning (oh, wait…..). And while I have complained about all the fish (and Dorie has lamented that she didn’t manage to turn me into a fish lover), I will miss this. I will miss the learning. I will miss the camaraderie of trying some newfangled fishy dish and sharing the results with my fellow Doristas every Friday. There will be more time for reminiscing over the next few weeks so, in the meantime, I leave you with this:
Seafood pot-au-feu. A lovely, light spring-like veggie and seafood stew – with salmon, scallops and mussels. Neil told me he would be very happy if I would make it again and it was Cleo-approved too. It was actually really easy to make (even, ewwww – removing the mussels from their shells wasn’t so bad!) so I would probably make this for seafood-loving company but not just for Neil. I halved the recipe and it still made a LOT!
(me, I much preferred the Warm Weather Pot-au-feu…)
Au revoir les poissons……
Get Dorie Greenspan’s recipe for seafood pot-au-feu on p 308 of Around my French Table.
French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs, we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository.
