Sunday Seafood

My fish stock is at a slow simmer. Our house smells wonderful, its filled with the sharp briny scent of the ocean. The smell promises spicy and rich flavors filled with memories of salt marshes and long forgotten meals of Autumns past.

It's time to cook. Three pounds of Snapper await my attention, after I stand and stir a rue until its nut brown. I must chop onions and celery and green pepper and garlic and fresh thyme.

I'm  happy.

Standby.

  4. Bet it's good. We stopped at Beach Road, on our way home, for takeout. The ride home w/the smell of it in the back seat is pure torture. And, a much less healthy alternative than yours.

    1. Sweetheart, each dish is different. Sometimes I do indeed include shellfish. As a matter of fact while at the monger I almost grabbed a bag of mussels but changed my mind only because I didn't feel like cleaning the boogers. Many of my dishes include shrimp and/or combinations of fish and shrimp. Just depends on my moods.
