CEVICHE! ~ Costa Rican Style by Amos Miller

My buddy, Ed, of Puerto Rican descent, spent his time in the Air Force in Central and South America. Ed's favorite dish: ceviche! He tells endless tales of trying ceviche, which is seafoods 'cooked' in nothing but citrus juice. Ed always said that the ceviche he would eat by the gallon, if he could get it, was that he had in Costa…

Mexican Garlic Broiled Tilapia

Mexican Garlic Broiled Tilapia by John Spottiswood

I love the lime-garlic flavored fish that I get when I'm down in Mexico, especially in Puerto Vallarta. Normally it is grilled down there, but I think the recipe on the broiler does an even better job. The fish stays very moist, but still gets a little crispy on top from the broiler.

Catfish «en meurette»

Catfish «en meurette» by Frank Fariello

The term «en meurette» refers to a dish that has been braised in a particularly delicious red wine sauce from the Burgundy region of France. Probably the best known of these dishes is oeufs en meurette, made from poached eggs. But even tastier, in my opinion, is fish made this way. The firm-fleshed monkfish (lotte in French) lends…
