One of my dearest friends is a physicist and also a geographer. He has mastered both fields of study and is a life-long learner. He has been writing a paper, which he hopes to have published soon on the correlation of human intellectual development after a diet of fish from migration to the sea. I have been compelled to consume fish over other proteins resulting from our conversations and his study (hoping).
Tonight I made Mahi-Mahi with wild rice and caraway baby carrots. If any of you out there remember a restaurant call “The Neon Goose” in Omaha, Nebraska (no longer in existence, to the misfortune of us all), they served Orange Roughy using a similar method.
Deep fry your fish in peanut oil using a coating of flour, baking powder, salt (a spot of sugar for the southerner) and ice cold water whisked in a bowl before dipping your fish and dropping it into the hot oil. I cook my fish outside on a burner all year round. If you deep-fry fish indoor, you could enjoy it’s aroma for months after the feast! When it is golden brown, it is ready – done.
I serve my fish with a mix of long-grain wild, basmati and brown rice, steamed in chicken broth and baby carrots steamed with butter and caraway seeds. It is an honest meal that is pure and truly a joy to prepare.
I hope that you are all more intelligent from eating fish and steamed vegetables as my friend Lowell’s study professes. It will be crazy delicious and beautiful if intellect fails.
