I love crostinis, finger food, appetizer party food. But it is so rare to be served such a thing! I created a dinner based on this! There are a lot of steps but I promise the prep shouldn’t take longer then ten minutes and the cooking time is another 15 minutes tops. (Prepare all the ingredients in advance so you can do one thing after the other!)
Everyone cooks the same two fish – salmon and tilapia. And everyone says the same thing – I like fish if it doesn’t taste too fishy. So listen carefully to me: fish should never taste fishy. Fish should just taste buttery and delicious. It only tastes fishy if it is poor quality or not fresh. So do yourself and all your fish non-fish lovers a favor and buy some quality fresh fish and you will discover how fish is supposed to taste.
In Israel this fish is called Lokus. In America it is called Dusky grouper bass. It looks like flounder but is buttery like sea bass. Ask your local fish store if they have it! If not, use fresh flounder or tilapia.
Gravlox is a way to make lox in your home and you won’t believe how easy it is!!! It comes out worlds better than store bought and is so exciting to have for breakfast as a side to eggs, in a sandwich in a pasta or even just plain as a snack!
Miso is the elegant Japanese term for fermented soybean paste. When mixed with sweet and spices and cooked it creates a unique but gentle flavor. It lasts forever in your fridge, so if you buy it once. place it in a jar or container and pull it out when needed. You can make this recipe without the paste and it will still be bold and colorful and delicious! The trick to this dish is using high quality fish!
