Family Meal #1
Steelhead Trout With Mussels, Roasted Potatoes, and Late Summer Vegetables
For my first post I decided to be bold and cook something outside of my family's comfort zone. In the future, my family meal posts will be more kid friendly. My wife and I like fish, but getting our small children to eat seafood can, at times, be challenging. Mussels, and any other mollusk or crustacean for that matter, are regarded by my children as alien, non-food things that will surely cause death. Even my wife had to double check with me to be certain they were completely dead. My kids didn't try the mussels, but the fish was enjoyed by all who tried it.
Here's a rundown of the ingredients:
While the fish is in the oven, steam the mussels with the garlic, shallot, and dry vermouth. Finish with chopped tarragon, butter, salt, and pepper.
Arrange everything on the plate and sauce with the mussel cooking liquid; serve with warmed baguette.
