This is a simple but elegant meal that can be made well in advance of your next dinner party - just roast the fish and tomatoes at the last minute, then serve. The ratatouille base is enriched by the roasted tomatoes for a fresh elegant flavor.
There are lots of scrambled egg variations, but the ones that I love best are the Spanish versions. Generally speaking, the eggs are on the runny side, soft and silky, and filled with veggies. They are often served on lunch menus with a smaller portion as a main course. Amongst the versions I have had, the mushroom are my favorite.
I had almost this exact dish for dinner while in Spain. It was deceptively simple but amazingly delicious. The version that I had used wild mushrooms so if you want, that's a great choice.
Serve this for dinner with a side salad.
There are two key techniques to this that can help your dish be perfect. Cooking the potatoes so that they are just slightly (slightly!) underdone and letting them cool before topping them with the hot mushrooms means that they will finish cooking in the oven. Topping them with the mushrooms means that some of the intense, umami flavor will mingle as the mushrooms give up a little moisture.
I had a patient ask about fish the other day. This was after I mentioned that with his risk factors for heart disease he would do well to eat at least two servings of fish per week. He responded that he was worried about the reports of "mercury and other stuff" in fish and wanted to know what to do.
First and foremost, there's no doubt of the tremendous health benefit in eating fish. There are hundreds of studies clearly showing that consuming fish high in Omega 3 fats reduces the risk of sudden death, death from heart disease and stroke. In a meta-analysis of numerous studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA 2006; 296: 1885 - 1898) Drs. Mozaffarian and Rimm conclude that eating 1 - 2 servings each week reduces the risk of death from heart attack by 36% and reduces total mortality by 17%.
Wow! Something easy, cheap and tasty to prevent disease and death. Count me in! Mercury in Fish »
