Dash and Mr. Incredible Come for Dinner

Adam continues to broaden the horizons of our kitchen and came home from the store the other day with two rainbow trout complete with head and fins.  The boys were quite taken with these fish, petting them and admiring them. Gabriel even gave them names after his favorite superheroes, Dash and Mr. Incredible. I’m not sure the names quite fit, as these fish obviously failed to escape their adversary, but he was happy with the names and had no qualms about later eating his newly named fish.  Stuffed with parsley and lemon and brushed with oil, these two fish broiled in our oven and came out looking beautiful, even to this reserved fish eater.  Having never before served this type of fish, it took a bit of study to decide how best to serve it, but we finally figured it out. The boys, in spite of our directions to discretely remove any bones they found, could not resist boasting in their finds as they pulled the fine bones out.  Everyone ate heartily.

I had only one moment of queasiness when Gabriel, who had overheard our discussion of fish eyes being a delicacy, became quite attached to the idea of trying one.  He didn’t find it at all to his liking, and the very thought caused me to turn from the table, but I quickly recovered and enjoyed the rest of the meal, complete with spinach walnut salad.
