For a quick weeknight meal, it's difficult to beat a perfectly fresh piece of fish cooked quickly in a skillet and served simply with some boiled potatoes and a quick veggie. But like most people, we find it's often a challenge to keep flaky but firm textured fish from sticking to the pan. That's why we were so excited when we came across this recipe from J. Kenji Lopez-Alt of Serious Eats for cooking halibut, striped bass or even swordfish. By lightly breading only one side of the filet, the recipe makes the fish easy to cook without being overly heavy. It's a perfect weeknight meal that's fancy enough for a special occasion.
Clam Pizza is said to have originated in New Haven, Connecticut at Frank Peper's Apizza. I honestly have no idea if this version is at all similar to that one, all I know is that the day the Larsen family chose to top a pizza with freshly shucked littleneck clams, crispy bacon, caramelized onions and a boatload of garlic is the day an instant classic was born.
