How To Enjoy The Restaurant Experience At Home (NAPSA) - When spending time with loved ones or friends, a night on the town often includes a meal at a favorite restaurant. Tablecloths, candles, music - these details and more - combine to make dining out more memorable.
Think of the things you like about dining out and then try these tips to re-create the experience at home:
For example, a new cookbook from The Pampered Chef ¨, "Cooking for Two & More," offers contemporary upscale recipes to help you discover - or rediscover - the pleasures of fine cooking without the hassle. The Horseradish-Crusted Cod is one gourmet entree that is quick and simple to prepare. The horseradish topping keeps the cod moist and contributes a zesty flavor. Other mild white fish, such as tilapia, are also delicious prepared this way:
Prep time: 15 min. - Total time: About 30 min.
Preheat oven to 450 F.
Combine mayonnaise, horseradish, parsley and 2 tablespoons of the bread crumbs in a small bowl. Season cod evenly with salt and black pepper.
Place cod on pan with small sides; top evenly with horseradish mixture. Combine butter and remaining bread crumbs in microwave-safe bowl; microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until golden brown and crisp, stirring once. Sprinkle toasted crumbs evenly over top of horseradish mixture. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until cod flakes easily with a fork. Remove from oven; serve immediately.
Chef's Corner Tips
Because cod cooks quickly, pre-toasting the bread crumb topping results in a crunchy, golden brown crust.
For restaurant-style presentation, serve on a bed of sauteed sugar snap peas or fresh greens.
