Occasionally I was able to get opah (moonfish) when I was the chef at Black Cow Tap & Grill in MA.  I was on vacation in CA wine country, staying in Yountville, and went to Brix.  We looked at the menu, the server comes over and starts telling us the specials.  When he got to "grilled opah" I said, "You can stop now!"  It was delicious.

I understand the Greeks are big fans of it. Every time I go into a Greek restaurant, they are always yelling, "Opah! Opah!"!

Dear pnwchef,

I was disappointed to learn from your post that an American culinary graduate and alleged longtime chef would not know that the fish Hawaiians call mahi mahi, and that Latin Americans call dorado is actually a dolphinfish (Coryphaena hippurus). Harding High would be spinning in its grave, if it had a grave. For that matter, so too would Porky and Central.

 
Michael, Aloha, and as a proud not grad of Harding high school, I thank you. I have fished and prepared the Mahi Mahi many times on the Island of Oahu and prepared them at our Luau's. We had our Male 'ana, and our first Keiki in the Islands.  I have also fished and prepared the Dorado in Mexico. If memory serves me right there are 32 different verities of dolphin, none of these related to the beloved Flipper.........Mahalo kupunakane........take care my hoapili

Pretty good "Que", I doctor it up with some Scotts Barbeque Sauce   http://www.scottsbarbecuesauce.com/ and a little tabasco. Cold beer and maybe some oven fries....

Normally, that's what I'd be making! however, I *completely* forgot to order anything from anywhere. At least I always keep this stuff in the pantry! This morning I added chicory to my coffee, too. Best I can do while buried under several feet of snow.

To start off Mardi Gras right, I made a sazerac and got my andouille sausage from M&S Grocery in Metaire, LA out of the fridge.

 
 I started dinner by making the "Creole trinity".

 
I grilled the andouille sausage on a grill pan.

 
i made up red beans, rice and used the trinity as a base to make Okra Creole. 

 
The andouille turned out great and the okra was delish!

 
 
Have a great Mardi Gras everyone!

I bought a package of pork boudin and it's now where I can't get it.

Felix, what did you think of the drink mix? (I didn't want to spell out Hurricane)

I couldn't swallow it when I made it as directed.

Re:What's For Dinner TONIGHT...??? 2014/03/05 11:42:43
Now I want catfish. And I've just placed an order with Cajun Grocer for a bunch of stuff, because I haven't had good andouille in a million years.
 
Mar, the only way to drink it full strength is to FILL a glass with crushed ice (pack it in there), then pour in about two inches of dark rum, then the mix. Even then it's a bit much, and it certainly doesn't taste the same as when you're standing in Pat O'Brien's with a glass in your hand. I always make two quarts from a package instead of one...but the dark rum is key. There's something about the two flavours together that's perfect.
 
My meal turned  out quite different than I had planned. She nixed the beignets, I didn't have time to crush ice for the hurricanes (there was quite the large amount of rum in them...it was that kind of day), and I was out of sausage so I had to dice some regular smoked sausage. But...not too bad. And my bar celebrates right, so that was a whole lot of fun.

Michael, from this day forward they shall be called Salmon Cakes. I do the same thing, I let them set up in the refer. My wife wouldn't eat these for years, she hated them as a kid. I made her some, she said, I never thought they could taste like this...........Another one bites the dust.....

It hasn't been approved and made public on the site I use yet so I can't post a link, but this is it. It's a bit higher in carbs than I'm supposed to make for her, but I can get away with it every now and then, especially if I keep the meals on the surrounding days down.
 
Chicken Sorrento

6 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups whole wheat penne (uncooked) (I often use Dreamfield's pasta instead because I like the texture better)
6 tablespoons whole wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons dried parsley
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
4 ounces mushrooms (canned, drained)
1 can (10.75 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
16 ounces low-fat sour cream
1 1/2 cups frozen peas, thawed
1 teaspoon paprika
 
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350F; spray a 9x13 glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Step 2
Bring water with 1/4 teaspoon salt to a boil over high heat; add pasta, reduce heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring occasionally, 12 minutes or until tender.
Step 3
Combine flour, 3/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and parsley in a large zip-top plastic bag; add chicken and shake well to coat.
Step 4
Melt shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken pieces and brown 8 minutes per side.
Step 5
Drain pasta and set aside (I usually thaw the peas in a colander, then just dump the pasta over top to drain).
Step 6
Remove chicken from skillet to a plate; cover and keep warm.
Step 7
Add mushrooms, soup, oregano and garlic powder to skillet, scraping up the browned bits to combine; cook, stirring frequently, 5 minutes.
Step 8
Remove from heat and add sour cream, stirring to completely combine.
Step 9
Combine peas, pasta, and half of sour cream mixture and spread in bottom of prepared baking dish.
Step 10
Lay chicken pieces over pasta; spread remaining sauce over chicken pieces.
Step 11
Cover with foil and bake at 350F for 40 minutes; remove foil, sprinkle with paprika and bake an additional 20 minutes.

Tonight I just went easy. I stopped at one of my favorite markets, Antojitos Mexican Market. I got a carne asada burrito for dinner. I combined it with some Frijoles Negros I had and topped the beans with Queso Cotilja and fresh scallions from the market. Dessert was a fresh honey tangerine from the market. 

 

 

 
Yes, that is a nice glass of Cazadores Tequila to go with the dinner.
 
I also bought fresh chili peppers, bell peppers and chili powders for tomorrow night's dinner----Bison Chili. Stay tuned!
    FYI---the carne asada burrito was $2.99!!!!!

Well, tonight was chili night. Last night I bought my ingredients from Antojitos Latino Market. 

 
I also bought a package of New Mexico Chile Powder and a package of Chie de Arbol Powder, plus a container of fresh grated Queso Cotilja cheese. Everything went into the pot to make a nice "pot of red".
 

 
An hour and a half of simmering and it was ready. I had it with a side of frijoles negros and some homemade spinach and cheese tamales (not made by me, but made by a friend's mother).

 
The chili, topped with fresh grated Queso Cotilja cheese, was delicious.
