January 4, 2015


The 2015 edition of the month of frugality is underway, and that means a lot more cooking is happening in our home. Day 1: Dungeness crab risotto, spencer cut rib eye. Day 2: Pizza. Day 3: Hainanese chicken rice. Day 4: Gnocchi with oxtail ragu.

I'm also trying to make at least one new dish each week, every week, this year. We'll see how long this lasts...

For this week, the humble sardine. An appropriate ingredient for the month of frugality, but also one that is packed with flavor. The attempt is to replicate the grilled sardine appetizer from The Walrus and the Carpenter.

It came decently close. Grilling gives the sardine a better flavor than searing in butter... the main thing I'd change next time.
