Garden Goods: In Praise of Free Herbs
A friend recently loaded us up with stalks of thyme and marjoram from his garden. We used them to jazz up some fish fillets from Trader Joes.
I brushed Dover sole (a mere $4.99 a pound) with olive oil and sprinkled with chopped garlic and a dash of salt. I laid the herb sprigs on the fish, covered it with plastic wrap and let it marinate for about 1/2 an hour.
I baked it, uncovered, for about 15 minutes. To serve, I removed the herb stalks and squeezed a little (free from my tree) lemon. Delish!
Is it me, or does free food just taste better?
