Mussels Steamed in White Wine
This recipe came from a fellow home cook. Here is what she says about it,
" Below is a recipe that I got from a cooking class. The Chef's name is Michael Peters, owner of Pierre's Restaurant in Harding, New Jersey. I have made this appetizer a dozen times and everyone asks for the recipe. The broth is so good in this that you have to serve it with a spoon. So here it...

One of the recipes I fondly remember my Danish mom cooking is Pan-fried Flounder with Potatoes and Parsley.

Because the skin is thinner than what you find on older potatoes, they were seldom peeled.
Pan Fried Scallops with Bacon and Grapefruit

Parmesan Crusted Sea Bass Recipe
This recipe is so good I'm sure any meaty white fish would work. In fact, there was some leftover 'crazy water' (read on) leftovers so I duplicated the dish with chicken thighs the next night and served it with the broth and it too was delicious. I think it would have been better with boneless chicken breasts but I had boneless thighs on hand from the local Farmer's Market.

Soft Shell Crabs are a special treat when they are in season and that comes in late Spring down the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico.

This must also be the time when they mate becaus...

Steamed Clams - Jersey Steamers
It's my belief that clams, as well as lobster and those giant crab legs, are really just conduits for butter. Of course our fresh local steamers have a sweet flavor all their own with a unique texture but it's the butter that makes them special.
Striped Bass with Caramelized Onion Sauce

Stuffed Sole Sandwich
This is a playful take on a fish sandwich from Jacques Pepin. The fish acts as the bread, sandwiching a flavorful filling of mushrooms, leeks and sliced scallops. The flavor is simply out of this world. I saw it being prepared on a Jacques Pepin's cooking show while channel surfing one Sunday afternoon. It is easy to prepare and the sauce is out of this world.
Toasted Shrimp and Tomato Recipe
I love finding recipes in unusual places like this one that I found under the lid of a container of Nature Sweet grape tomatoes from Costco. I'm the type of home cook who can't pass a rack of recipes in the supermarket without thumbing through to find a few that might work at home.

This recipe is from a new restaurant in Park City called Mustang Restaurant (at least new to me) and was created by Bill Hufferd.
