Smoked Trout and Fingerling Potato Salad Recipe – Jack The Horse Tavern Brooklyn Heights NY http://www.plateoftheday.com/?p=1406 http://www.plateoftheday.com/?p=1406#respond Wed, 01 Dec 2010 15:11:23 +0000 http://www.plateoftheday.com/?p=1406 Smoked Trout and Fingerling Potato Salad Recipe – Jack The Horse Tavern Brooklyn Heights NY

smoked trout and fingerling potato salad recipe - Jack The Horse Tavern Brooklyn Heights NY

Ok, I’m back after a 1 month hiatus. Work has been crazy and then last week I was out in LA for Thanksgiving and my sister’s wedding. (lots of good blogging material of course). Let’s start off with an awesome recipe from Tasting Table that is similar to the amazing smoked trout salad at Jack the Horse Tavern Restaurant in Brooklyn Heights. It’s a rather simple salad but delivers complex flavors and textures. One bite reveals the warm soft boiled fingerling potatoes vs. cold crunchy celery, sweet spicy raisins vs. salty smoked trout. I slightly modified the recipe from the Tasting Table version and so should you since it’s really all a matter of taste. For example the Tasting Table recipe calls for cooling the potatoes, but I prefer serving the potatoes warm like they do at Jack The Horse.

6 fingerling potatoes, halved lengthwise
1 roasted red beet cut in thin slices
⅓ cup golden raisins
⅛ teaspoon red-pepper flakes
6 celery ribs, thinly sliced on the bias, leaves reserved (can reduce if you don’t want too much crunch in the salad)
1 cup loosely packed flat-leaf parsley
½ cup of arugula or mixed baby greens
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
½ pound skinless smoked trout, broken into small pieces

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon mustard

Boil the potatoes and set aside. In a large bowl, mix the greens, parsley, raisins, pepper flakes and slices of beets. Toss in the smoked trout and potatoes. Mix lemon juice, olive oil, mustard and drizzle over the salad. Salt and pepper to taste.

Fresh Cape Cod Lobster Rolls – Chatham Pier Fish Market Cape Cod, MA http://www.plateoftheday.com/?p=1320 http://www.plateoftheday.com/?p=1320#respond Tue, 14 Sep 2010 13:34:59 +0000 http://www.plateoftheday.com/?p=1320 Fresh Cape Cod Lobster Rolls – Chatham Pier Fish Market Cape Cod, MA

Cape Cod Labor Day 2010

Cape Cod
45 Barcliff Ave
Chatham, MA 02633

Usually I’m the last person to say that summer is over because I don’t want to jinx the possible end to ceaseless months of sweltering heat here in NY. Ever since Labor Day Weekend however, we’ve had a pretty steep drop in the temperature and I’m surprisingly missing the heat (a bit). Luckily we were able to get in a short trip up to Cape Cod over Labor Day Weekend before the season ended. On top of the great weather was Hurricane Earl’s timely demise which led to a pretty unspoiled and less crowded Cape Cod to enjoy.

And so we did. We started with a gigantic lobster roll at the Chatham Pier Fish Market. It’s a little pricey $19.99 considering the locale, but for what you get it’s pretty well worthwhile. It was voted the best lobster roll and clam chowder by a local newspaper. I think I’m used to more mayonnaise and filling than lobster in my rolls, but really who am I to complain? We also had a pint of clam chowder which was also extremely meaty in a silky smooth cream soup base. Great with the crunchy crackers.

Chatham Pier Fish Market is really a seafood market than a restaurant, so its best to visit when the weather is nice so you can enjoy your food by the beach, located 100 yards away. Here’s to a great fall and winter!!
