I was looking to squeeze a quick and easy fish dish into our Saturday night…
…before the lamb ragu pasta festival for family and friends on tap for tonight. Rather than just sautéing off a nice pice of fish I dug out an old paris bistro favorite that I hadn’t made in years — Mustard Roasted Fish — and it was awesome!
How do recipes like this get lost in the chaff of our stupidly busy lives … not sure, but I’m glad I recovered this lost gem. It’s an Inna Garten recipe that I tweaked up a bit (find the recipe here).
Johnnys, Johns and Jonny…
So if you’ve been around the Vocalstandards main site of late, you know I’ve been on a hot streak with reviews and posts about guys named John, Johnny or Jonny.
As I wrapped the Pizarelli piece, I started thinking about my upcoming content plan and whether I should try to keep the John train rolling … decided against it, but came up with an array of other John/Johnnys and decided to see how much of a “Just Johns” playlist I could come up with. Taking the aforementioned three and adding Johnny’s Hartman and Mercer and John Stevens … what a great mix of styles and quality recordings roll into view.
We spent a fine Saturday night eating some of my favorite Paris bistro fare (pairing the fish up with lemon/garlic roasted creamer potatoes .. oh my) and listening to “only guys named John” sing their best stuff … throw in a really nice Gagliardo Fallegro to cut across the semi-rich fish and the ultra rich music made it damn near perfect.
Do try this recipe and don’t forget to load up some John/Jon’s for the ride!
