This week’s French Fridays with Dorie challenge is for Skate with Capers, Cornichons, and Brown Butter Sauce. Skate is actually a type of Stingray – but since we have never seen it around here, we thought the Brown Butter Sauce would be a great complement to Sole. And, since neither of us is very fond of Cornichons, we left them out. The result was a wonderful dish that we are sure to enjoy again. We think it would be great with a meatier fish, like Halibut, as well. It’s a great entree for a weeknight that’s quick to make and easy to enjoy!
As things often go in our kitchen, we made mashed potatoes and garlic spinach. Then, just as John was finishing the sauce, I remembered these great spinach garlic mashed potatoes I’d had at The Yard House. So, I threw a handful of shredded cheddar cheese and a spoon of bacon bits into the potatoes and stirred in the garlic spinach and served it all together. It was wonderful and a perfect accompaniment to the fish and tangy sauce.
