Chorizo Topped White Fish with Breadcrumbs


You know what makes fish taste better? Pork. In this case, chorizo to be exact. Chorizo and wine

I came across this recipe in Bon Appetit a few months ago. I always get excited with my magazine comes in the mail. I sit down and read through the whole thing, folding page corners of things that I think are interesting and that I decide I should make. And then generally, I pile the magazine up with a bunch of mail or books or the kind of debris that lives on coffee tables and I forget about it. But not this time! This time I followed through and made something straight from the glossy pages.  halibut and chorizoThis recipe was easy to put together and beautiful. It would be perfect for an easy dinner party. Especially since you can put together the breadcrumbs and chorizo mixtures in advance. Then before the party, all you would have to do is cook the fish, assemble and serve. HalibutI couldn’t find cod when I made this, so I went with Halibut. It was delicious. The chorizo brings a richness and saltiness to the dish and the vinegar brightens the whole thing up. It was really quite tasty and I loved the crunch of the breadcrumbs. I want to try the chorizo and breadcrumb combos on all kinds of seafood now. I think it would be great on shrimp. Give it a try.

And if you also get great food magazines in the mail, at least I hope this inspires you to try out that recipe you circled and forgot about. You might find something great.
