#WeekendsInAFrenchKitchen ~ Skate with Brown Butter and Capers
Welcome to the inaugural post of the Weekends In a French Kitchen group! This is such an exciting project to be a part of - I cannot wait to see how the upcoming recipes taste, explore this amazing cuisine through these books, expand my cooking repertoire and experiences, and expose myself to new and delicious recipes! (Follow the link provided above to learn more about the recipe posting schedule, the two books we'll be cooking through, and how the group was formed - you can also see where in the world those who have joined in are from and maybe even join the group yourself!)
This is probably the first French recipe I have cooked... my choice of international cuisine usually falls to Mexican or Italian, so when I heard about this group I thought it would be a really fantastic opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and experience some gorgeous and delicious new food. After I fixed this recipe (I subbed halibut for skate since that is what I was able to find at my grocery store) I was completely hooked. It was such a simple list of ingredients, the preparation was really very quick and easy and the "wow factor" was BIG with this meal. Gorgeous, elegant, rich, and absolutely delicious. I could not have been any happier with this recipe and I know we will certainly be making it again! Quick enough for a work night and impressive enough for dinner guests.
Per the groups guidelines, the recipe is not posted here, out of respect for the author of the cookbook. However, I highly recommend you look into your own copy of "Cafe Boulud Cookbook" and join in the fun!!
