Round 4 of #FridayFishDish Lohud Cooking Challenge


Welcome to Round 4 of a Lohud cooking challenge here at Small Bites, dubbed #FridayFishDish. During the seven weeks of Lent, many Christians abstain from eating meat on Fridays. In an effort to keep your cooking inspired, we’ve come up with a reverse recipe game in which we present a list of ingredients and YOU tell us what to make. Each Wednesday for the entirety of Lent, the Life & Style section of The Journal News will print reader responses along with a local chef’s take on the ingredients.

Round one featured tuna, soy, black pepper and Brussels sprouts, with expert advice from Mount Kisco Seafood.

Round two used salmon, cayenne, potatoes and rosemary, along with some help from La Mer Seafood in Armonk.

Last week, round 3 used halibut, balsamic vinegar, thyme and sweet potatoes. The seasoned pros at Rockland Seafood in Bardonia offered tips of the trade.

For this week’s challenge, we’re cooking trout. Come up with a dish using trout and the following three ingredients: apple cider vinegar, quinoa and parsley. What springs to mind for me, you ask? Well, I think I would butterfly the fish and stuff with a quinoa mixture, then bake it.

Last week readers weighed in: Theresa Larkin, via email, Alex Rubeo, owner of Mariela’s Wine & Espresso Bar in Pound Ridge, via Twitter and Pat Sassano VanderHeijden, via Facebook. Thank you for playing! We’re having a lot of fun hearing what people would put together.

Want YOUR kitchen creation printed in newspaper next week? Tell us what you’d make with the ingredients! You can leave your suggestions in the comments section here on the blog, on the Small Bites Facebook page,  tweet @small_bites or Instagram your photo with the hashtag #fridayfishdish (we are on instagram @smallbiteslohud).
