From the desk of Jose Mier: Choosing the best meal to function as the main course for a supper party is often a predicament. Hostesses and hosts want to ensure that they do not serve foods to which the guests might have an allergic reaction and when handling different cultures, they wish to make sure the food is not offending. For instance, would you serve pork at a meal where your were Muslim or Orthodox Jews? If you understand that some of your visitors are vegetarian, you would most likely not serve roast beef or chicken or any other type of meat.
The same holds true with frozen desserts. Some vegans don’t consume eggs so an ice cream that is custard based is going to be off limits for them. When Preparing a meal for new guests, make sure you take all of this into account.
Fish is a dish that constantly goes over well at supper celebrations. The dinner celebration that made me the finest compliments was one at which I served a dish called Smiling Halibut Skillet. This one is based on a dinner party for 10 people.
1 1/2 tsp. Thyme
2 1/2 pound halibut (permitting 1/2 pound. per serving).
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil.
1 onion sliced in small pieces.
1 clove garlic, minced.
1 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch.
1 can stewed tomatoes.
1/2 cup green onions.
Sprinkle some of the thyme on both sides of each fish fillet and cook using medium heat in hot oil. Evaluate the fish to see if it flakes quickly with a fork. This will inform you that it is fried. Eliminate the fish to a warming plate.
Utilizing the same skillet, cook the garlic and onion up until they hurt. Stir the cornstarch into the stewed tomatoes and after that put the mix into the frying pan. Cook until thickened. Return the fish to the frying pan and let it heat through with the sauce.
Picking the finest meal to serve as the main dessert optoin for a dinner celebration can often be a predicament. Hosts and hostesses want to make sure that they do not serve offensive foods to which the visitors may have an allergic reaction and when dealing with various cultures, they desire to make sure the food is not offensive. As we said you would not serve pork at a meal where some of your visitors practiced the Jewsish faith or Muslim religion. You would not serve chicken or roast beef or ham if you know that some of your guests are vegetarian. It’s like Jim Croce sang, “You don’t spit into the wind…” and you don’t serve certain things at your dinner party.
The supper party that earned me the finest compliments was one at which I served a recipe called Smiling Halibut Skillet.
To be absolutely safe, serve a fresh juice sorbet or granite for dessert.
