The other night he was just finishing up dinner in the kitchen when he had the urge to be videotaped. I think a cooking show is in this guy's future. The recipe for Freddy's Fish, an Asian-style dish that is big on flavor, follows. Fred Brash from the Culinary Institute is a colleague of my father's at the Culinary and is a friend of our family. We thank him for this recipe!
Freddy's Fish (Sorry there aren't ingredient quantities...but isn't that how most of us cook? Just cater to your own specific tastes, adding more or less of various ingredients.)
-Prepare rice as instructed...try to cook it "to perfection" as Darryl would say.
-Mix soy sauce, asian 5 spice, mirin (a rice wine-like condiment), fresh chives, and thinly sliced hot pepper in a bowl and let it sit until further notice.
-Dredge a firm white fish (like tilapia) in egg white and then in cornstarch, and fry in a skillet until crispy. Keep the fish warm in the oven.
Saute garlic, ginger, and scallions (GGS) until aromatic and the garlic is translucent.

Add the cooked fish back to the pan, and try not to crowd it. Pour the bowl of the soy sauce blend over the fish and allow it to braise for a couple of minutes.
You're done! Serve the fish with a side of rice and some sauteed Brittany Hollow Farm braising mix.
|Ross couldn't keep his hands out of the pot of braising greens...they smelled too good!|
|The final product! I know that Darryl doesn't seem like an edible flower guy, but he is!|
