Climate Change may be stimulating Pacific Coast Fisheries

The extreme weather swings experienced by Californians the past six years: a historic drought followed by drenching winter storms caused millions of dollars in damage to many cities. However, it may be sustaining many California Fishing Communities. The impact of climate change may be stimulating the population & price of some fish.
 
California fishermen are reporting one of the best salmon fishing seasons in more than a decade, thanks to heavy rain & snow that ended the state’s historic drought.
 
It’s a sharp reversal for chinook salmon, also known as king salmon, an iconic fish that helps sustain many Pacific Coast fishing communities.
 
Capitalize on the quality & cost of this delicate fish:
 
Salmon fillets are the most commonly used cut of the fish, and for good reason: removing the pin bones is simple, and the cut lends itself to all methods of cooking. A fillet can be a small section of a boned side, intended to serve one or two people, or it or an entire boned side to serve a crowd.
 
With or without skin? Certain methods, like pan-frying fillets, are designed to give you crispy skin & the skin is delicious. For poaching: skin can be removed before cooking & discarded. #fish #kitchen #kitchen #food #restaurant #cooking #delicious #sustainable #flavor #foodservice

Spaghetti Nests

Spaghetti nests are customizable to taste, perfectly proportioned and an elegant way to dress up traditional pasta dishes.

Many spaghetti nest recipes can be prepared in advance and finished by adding distinctive seasoning before baking. Although there are many variations of these nests, they tend to hold together better and become crispier with egg added as a binder.

Delicate Fish in Commercial Nonstick Pans

According to the Cookware Manufacturers Association, 70 percent of all nonstick skillets were purchased by the home cook; although there is a need for nonstick skillets in a commercial kitchen.

Professional chefs typically prefer an uncoated steel pan to create a flavorful crust on food & fond. Fond is French for “base” and commonly refers to the browned bits & caramelized drippings of meat & vegetables that stick to the bottom of a pan after sautéing or roasting.

However, professional chefs will reach for nonstick skillets when cooking delicate fish & eggs. They prefer nonstick pans for stir-fries because the fond won’t stick to the pans & there is less chance of burning the food.

The best way to judge a pan, (assuming it is heavy gauge and well constructed), is to test the handle for comfort, durability, capacity & the shape of the vessel. Pans with flared edges are ideal for lifting food out of the skillet.

The ideal nonstick pan is easy to handle, has great release & cooks food evenly with appropriate browning. For nonstick cookware, premium nonstick surfaces are reinforced internally with titanium & may make all conventional nonsticks obsolete. hashtag#restaurants hashtag#cooking hashtag#french hashtag#howto hashtag#eggs hashtag#pan @madeinfrance hashtag#gourmet # hashtag#ideal hashtag#fish hashtag#titanium hashtag#chef hashtag#delicious hashtag#healthy
