I got a new cookbook! Mountain Man pointed it out me at the Sportsmen’s Show a few weeks ago. Tiffany Haugen is a cooking columnist for many outdoor and sportsmen’s magazines in the Pacific Northwest including MM’s favorite, Salmon-Trout-Steelheader. With a job like that, you better believe she knows what she’s talking about. I really love her cookbooks. They are clear, straight forward, and have pretty pictures for each recipe. I don’t know about you, but I need visual stimulus when it comes to food. No pictures? No deal!
It was funny how cautious MM was at suggesting I get a cookbook. He was worried I’d jump down his throat, like “How dare you suggest I, cooking blog badass, need a cookbook!” I laughed. “Of course I need cookbooks!” I said, “Inspiration doesn’t always just come out of thin air and completely original ideas are few and far between for any blogger.” Once the relief washed over his face, he happily began to sell this book to me by telling me all about the author and how she posts in his favorite magazine monthly.
The minute we got in the truck to head home, I started flipping through the pretty pictures when….
I found a recipe that called for artichokes with halibut. I never would have thought of that, and I love artichokes! Needless to say, the moment I got home, I started pulling ingredients out and devising a plan. The sauce is essentially just like my Awesome Salmon recipe with a few extra ingredients. And boy was this a hit! The flavor of the artichoke complements the fish so well. I don’t know how to explain it other than, it’s awesome! I also added a little Swiss cheese in to help bind the sauce together, yum!
That day at the Sportsman’s Show, I also picked up Garlic Gourmet’s Garlic Pepper seasoning. This seasoning is super zingy with lots of peppery kick! Garlic Gourmay is one of the best seasoning companies out there, if you ask me. Although Garlic Gourmet products are not sold in grocery stores, they are often found in the cooking section of sportsmen’s stores or you can purchase online (just click on the link above). If that’s too long to wait or to far to go, many grocery store brands have garlic pepper readily available in the spices section as well.
Did I mention this recipe is super easy? Make the sauce, spread it over your fish, and bake for 20 minutes. That’s it. So easy, so good. I’m so glad for another knock out fish recipe to add to our weekly meal options! Enjoy!
