Indulgent Pesto Mushrooms

image

Stem/clean some Cremini/Portobello Mushrooms. (They’re actually the same mushroom, just different ages!)

Arrange Shrooms on a plate and cover with a bowl.

Microwave for 30-45 sec.

Fill warmed Mushrooms with Basil Pesto and, if on-hand, top it off with a candied Jalapeño.

Again, cover the plate and microwave for another 1.5-2 minutes at about 1000MW.

For additional umami, garnish with roasted seaweed (Kizami Nori きざみのり).

10-Minute Citrus-Poached Catfish

image

Fill a skillet with a 1/2 inch of water, add a splash of citrusy vinegar — Calamansi Balsamic was on-hand for this instance– or a  squeeze of fresh lemon. 

Bring to a boil over medium / 60% heat.

With scales down, cook the catfish for 4-5 min in the uncovered skillet.

Flip the fish, add spinach atop, and cover.  Cook another 3-4 min, or until the fish and greens are cooked. There should only be a little liquid remaining.

Remove from heat.

Using two turners, flip the fish and leaves onto a plate so the fish has a vibrant bed of green. 

Drizzle broth atop the finished product.

Bon Appetit!
