While I was making the spinach and cod roulades for French Fridays with Dorie, there were a few things that I knew for certain. I just knew that someone would love these, would put them into their repertoire of fun and tasty things to cook. I knew that someone would take a wonderful photograph. And I knew that I wouldn't be doing these things.
While I was making them, I was annoyed. I was annoyed when I pureed the perfect cod. I was annoyed when I smeared the mix on plastic wrap. I'm not sure that I enjoy cooking with plastic wrap. I was annoyed when I formed the sausage shapes. My attitude was all wrong going into this challenge.
I started by making some preserved lemons. We use a Cooking Light recipe and really enjoy having these in the refrigerator.
I decided to served the fish with the tomato sauce. It was quite tasty and easy to make.
I cracked the eggs and ever hopeful Murphy in her spring hair cut came running. She loves the sound of eggs cracking.
I pureed the lovely cod and made the spinach stuffing and formed the roulades. We liked them, however my husband and I both felt that sauteing the cod and steaming the spinach would have been just as tasty.
This is one of fun things about the challenge. I did it, we ate it, we enjoyed it. I won't be doing it again.
