Reviewed Whole Fish Baked in Salt Crust

Mar 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love this recipe. Use it frequently. I'm partial to Branzino. Delicious, moist, with the hint of salt that brings to mind the sea of the fish's origin. Quite frankly, its fool proof. And, as a fool, I'm proof. ""

They were very good ... but fairly labor intensive for what the output. Also, I didn't find that the the amounts in the recipe were very different from the tv show, but I did notice that the order of combining the ingredients varied. I suspect if you follow the tv show, they will come out lighter.""

Jan 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

So, so , so very good. I really let the sage cook in the butter for little bit. Was amazed how much flavor the sage added. Also, the squash takes closer to 1 hour to get soft enough. A fantastic dish. It is now one of my favorites.""

I think this is so much better than the heavy, gloppy standard eggplant parm. For one thing, with this dish, you can actually taste the eggplant. Delicious and so easy.""

It wasn't bad, but so many of Mario's recipes are fantastic, that I won't make this again. It just wasn't anything special.""

I'm a big fan of this recipe. A tasty alternative to hamburgers. And the soy mayo works so well with the salmon.""

Reviewed Sweet and Sour Chicken: Pollo in Agrodolce

Jan 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love this dish and make it frequently. It's easy, very tasty and isn't run of the mill. I cook the chicken with the lid on for a while before letting the sauce evaporate. It seems to mellow out the vinegar. A hearty recommendation.""

Delicious. Have made it twice and I just love the flavors. I'm unused to the Moroccan flavor palate, so I find it very fun to make. Don't know what I did wrong the first time, but the harissa came out way better the second time.""

this is flat out fantastic. The bechamel adds so much flavor instead of the standard, gloppy cheese. And it makes for a liter dish as well. Yes, add thyme or your favorite herb to the bolognese. (I omit the pancetta and just use more beef or pork instead. Just not crazy about the cured meat flavor in the bolognese.) Make it today.""
