Don’t you love it when a dish you hadn’t really planned comes together perfectly?
That happened to me last week: I had a piece of fish to cook for dinner but no plan beyond that.
I often bake fish in tomato and onion, so I was thinking of something like that but I had no fresh tomatoes. Instead I made a thick kind-of sauce from an onion, and things I had in the fridge: capers, olives, sun dried tomatoes, wine, baby spinach, tomato sauce.
Then I put the fish on top, covered the pan and put it in the oven. Perfect and delicious.
We had it with rice, and though I didn’t really have a plan in the first place, now I plan to buy a bigger piece of fish next time since it was such a hit. What surprise hit have you made up?
