So I went to the freezer to see what was what and remembered I had purchased a tray of beautiful fresh sole at the fish market over the weekend.
But how to prepare it?
Did I want it stuffed with shrimp and covered in a luscious cream sauce?
Mmmm... sounded good - but I didn't have the right ingredients on hand to pull it off.
So what did I have?
After a nice forage into my pantry I came away victorious with a box of panko breadcrumbs and a container of Emeril's Creole Seasoning I'd mixed together over the weekend. (truly a kitchen staple - his spice blend is good on just about everything)
The perfect combination for a crunchy and comforting fish bake!
