Cook the Issue 2010: Shellfish with Fennel, Escarole, and Kale

After 10 days of rich yet unsatisfying Disney food, a light shellfish stew seemed pretty appealing, so that was our dinner tonight.  I used the local Maine shrimp that are now in season and only $5.99/lb.  My grocery was out of escarole (?) so I doubled up on kale.  I really liked the flavors in this dish.  I think it might be a little too garlicky for a true holiday celebration, but for a dish shared between two people eating the same thing it was really nice.  The only change I made was to sub in chopped fennel fronds for the parsley, just because I had them.  I would definitely make this again.

I enjoyed the shellfish stew and might even consider it for Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve, but I think NYE since I am already committed to our traditional bowl of linguini and clam sauce and whatever fish I can find in Boise. Posted: 5:35 am on December 15th
