Comrade PhysioProf is extremely thrilled and excited that he has won Round #3 of the Recipe War with his delicious–yet simple to prepare–miso-glazed black cod served with chilled somen noodles. His fierce, yet honorable, competitor Dr. Isis did come forward on the field of battle with a very tasty-looking vermouth poached salmon provencal, which Comrade PhysioProf confesses he may very well have to make at some point. This week’s battle could turn out to be a key turning point in the Recipe War, as the score is now 2-1 in favor of Dr. Isis.
For this week’s Second Fish Course, Comrade PhysioProf prepared broiled arctic char with a Cotes-du-Rhone balsamic reduction sauce, served on top of sauteed mushrooms and leeks, and accompanied by toasted parmigiano reggiano asparagus topped with a fried egg. As you will see, Comrade Physioprof has exploited Dr. Isis’s excellent sautee-based method for cooking asparagus that she presented in last week’s recipe. Here we go!
