Cooking with Suhru: Whole Roasted Branzino & Sauvignon Blanc
Sometimes you stumble upon something special in the least likely places. A few weeks ago while walking the isles of Costco I stumbled across two beautiful, whole Bronzino. Now Costco is not usually my go-to for fish—living on the East End there are so many excellent fish shops (think Brauns Seafood and Southold Fish Market)—but sometimes a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.
After scouring the inter-webs searching for the perfect preparation I happened to stumble across Girl in the Kitchen's Greek Whole Roasted Bronzino recipe, and the rest is history!
This recipe has quickly become a staple in our house and is perpetually in the rotation. This simple recipe with its clean, crisp flavors pairs beautifully with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. The fruitiness and soft minerality of the wine play beautifully with the delicate almost sweet flavors of the fish and the richness of the feta on the spinach salad nicely offsets the subtle richness and depth of the wine!
With vaccines on the horizon and the possibility of dinner parties inching closer to reality every day, I am looking forward to the days ahead when I can have friends over to enjoy this meal, but until then, I'll be having luxurious meals for 2 at home and feasting on these delicious fish!
Pro Tip: If you have extra fish at the end of the meal, shred it into small bits and make into crab cake style patties, a great way to up-cycle to turn one meal into two!
