I love making lettuce wraps so I like to be creative with new variations. This is a quick, great, healthy way to change up the way you eat seafood by serving it in a lettuce wrap. Feel free to add any of your favorite toppings or substitute your favorite fish or even use shrimp or scallops. Use a grill pan or skillet if you don’t want, or have time, to fire up the grill. These make great appetizers or a light summer dinner.
Last week I had the fortunate experience to attend a wine dinner featuring recipes from an amazing Atlanta cookbook author, Virginia Willis, at the beautiful Hot and Hot Fish Club in Birmingham, Alabama. Virginia is the author of Bon Appétit, Y’all! Three Generations of Southern Cooking (Ten Speed Press, 2008)., an incredible cookbook. Virginia produced Turner South’s Home Plate and the DVD Shirley Corriher’s Kitchen Secrets Revealed, and she was the Kitchen Director at Martha Stewart Living. Virginia has so many other incredible accolades which are too many to mention here, but you can see them on her website http://www.virginiawillis.com for more information. I thought I would share with you one of Virginia’s recipes for Halibut Provencal that is very light and springy. It’s as fabulous as it sounds.
