From the Proprietor
Good morning seafood lovers! We are still updating our blog and our Flickr photostream with content from our trip to the Boston Seafood Show. I hope you will read our latest blog entry about the Salmon Summit. Experts on salmon aquaculture and the Alaska wild salmon fishery gathered to share their knowledge of the latest innovations in sustainable fish farming and the projected wild harvests for 2011. You might also want to take a peek at our photostream. As you will see, we saw so many fish and shellfish - both familiar and new - that it took a while to upload all the photos! Have a great week, and enjoy this gorgeous Austin spring weather.

Recipe of the week
Baked Sole with Tarragon and Roasted Shallot-Garlic Butter (recipe credit: Brenda Langton, The Cafe Brenda Cookbook)

Note: This dish also works well with Halibut.

8 cloves garlic, roasted
2 shallots, roasted
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large or 2 small leeks, white part only, julienned
1/2 cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 orange, peeled and cut into segments
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 pounds fresh sole, cleaned and trimmed

Roast the garlic and shallots at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes, until soft. Let cool briefly, and then peel shallots. Cut off the top of the garlic bulb with a sharp knife. Hold onto the base of the bulb, and squeeze out the roasted garlic pulp. While the garlic and shallots are roasting, saute leeks in 1 tablespoon olive oil for 2 minutes. Add wine and simmer, covered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until the wine has evaporated. In a blender or food processor, carefully combine the garlic pulp, shallots, butter, and salt. Set the garlic-shallot butter aside. Place the leeks in the bottom of a large, shallow casserole (at least 10 inches long) or 4 individual dishes. Put the orange segments, tarragon, and lemon juice into the casserole. Lay the sole fillets on top of this. Spread the garlic shallot butter over the fish. Cover with lid or foil. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes. Depending on fillet thickness, the amount of baking time will vary. Watch carefully: It doesn't take long to overcook delicate sole. Remove from the heat when the center of the fillet is opaque. To check, insert a sharpe knife into the thickest part of fillet and pull back gently. Serves 4.
