Roasted Fish Bruschetta


After rambling on about Chinese Fusion Food, Halloween and Corn Mazes last week, I thought I'd cut you a break today with a quickie write-up and a quickie dinner!

First, a few fun quotes for your reading enjoyment...don't you just love quotes?

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good, is like expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian. ~Dennis Wholey


A bagel is a doughnut with the sin removed. ~George Rosenbaum

There is one thing more exasperating than a wife who can cook and won't, and that's a wife who can't cook and will. ~Robert Frost


Condensed milk is wonderful. I don't see how they can get a cow to sit down on those little cans. ~Fred Allen

He was a very valiant man who first adventured on eating oysters. ~James I

All sorrows are less with bread. ~Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote

It's so beautifully arranged on the plate - you KNOW someone's fingers have been all over it. ~Julia Child


Alright. Here is a quick and delightful meal that is perfect for nearly any occasion. Of course, as the main dish at lunch or dinner. Yet this is
also a lovely first-course at a dinner party, could be miniaturized for
appetizers, or even be served as brunch!


There are three things that really elevate this dish and should not be overlooked.

First, choose a tender, flaky white fish with a buttery note. Orange Roughy or Seabass would be the perfect choice, if they weren't on the "At Risk List". Instead try Swai, Mon chong, Ono (wahoo), Halibut, or Trout.

Second, chopped anchovy (or anchovy paste) provides a pungent earthy
depth to the tomato sauce that simply couldn't be reached
otherwise--even if it were simmered all day under the watchful eye of an
Italian Nana. Don't be tempted to skip the anchovy--it MAKES the dish!

Third, FRESH basil ribbons. Enough said!
