What We’re Eating Again: Roasted Fish, Baked Clam Style
From: “It’s All Good” – May 2013 (The original post can be found here.)
Why: This dish is solidly in our Fish Friday rotation because everybody loves it.
Top Tips: Although the original dish called for sea bass, we’ve found that it works with any filleted fish. Tonight I used trout, which I can’t encourage you enough to try, as it’s locally sourced, inexpensive and delicious. As I’ve said before, I was hesitant to try trout as I thought it would be too fishy, but that is absolutely not the case if it’s fresh. Even the boys like it.
Also, because we are fond of bread crumbs in this house, I double the recipe so that there’s plenty for everyone’s fish.

What We’re Eating Again: Tomato & Mozzarella Gnocchi Bake
From: “Bill’s Italian Food” – June 2014 (I never got around to posting this during the month, but it seems that this dish has real staying power, given how much we love it.)
Why: We’ve made this twice already and I’ve only had the cookbook since June. He says in the introduction that his daughter would eat this every night, and I think that also would be true of my sons. They love it because of all of the cheesy pasta goodness, I love it because it tastes an awful lot like lasagna, but takes seconds to prepare. (Well, not seconds if we’re being technical, but it’s very, very quick.)
Top Tips: With two hungry boys– one a teenager– we have found that just one 500g bag of gnocchi isn’t enough to feed us all. We double it and then there’s plenty for everyone.
